DVD Releases for February 14, 2012

Time to take a look at a selection of DVD releases for Valentine's Day - Tuesday February 14, 2012!

  • The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part I Although this was released over the weekend on February 11, 2012 it is still the obvious choice for romantics and sparkly vampire fans. I know I already have my copy!
  • Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe Prefer to celebrate a holiday with The Doctor? Now you can with this release of the 2011 Doctor Who special themed on The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe.
  • The Dead (DVD Review) Gorgeous shot and African-set survivalist zombie film. This is one is very chilling, unnerving and absolutely stunning.
  • UFC 139: Shogun vs Hendo I'm only starting to watch some Ultimate Fighting so I don't know all the players out there but every time these show up I feel like I'm getting that much closer to understanding it all.
  • The Rum Diary Johnny Depp stars in journalist who travels to Puerto Rico in this 1950s set film based on the novel by Hunter S. Thompson.
  • Elite Squad: The Enemy Within / Tropa de Elite 2 - O Inimigo Agora É Outro, this Brazilian film is a follow up to the 2007 crime/drama Elite Squad.
  • J.Edgar Biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio as J.Edgar Hoover; directed by Clint Eastwood.
  • Paranormal Activity 3 This impressive addition to the Paranormal Activity series did come out on DVD a few weeks ago it was only in BluRay and/or combopacks and now you can get in just DVD format. Awesome non-traditional Valentine's pick for the scare-fans out there.
  • Human Centipede II: Full Sequence Now this is the absolute anti-Valentine's day pick an honestly after seeing the first Human Centipede, I'm a little squeemishly scared of where they went with this one.
  • Urbanized Third film in Gary Hustwit's design trilogy of documentaries after Helvetica & Objectified.
  • The Mill and the Cross historical/religious film starring Rutger Hauer, Charlotte Rampling & Michael York centred on Pieter Bruegel's painting The Way to Calvary.
  • Tiny Furniture (Criterion Collection) I actually have no idea what this film is about but it's been huge on the indie circuit and an extremely quick turn around to Criterion.
  • The Interrupters I really want to see this documentary that follows 'violence interrupters'. Fascinating topic and extremely brave work, I'm so curious to see it.
  • Agnosia This Spanish drama/thriller is the wildcard of the week, literally just catching my eye with the poster art that looks totally creepy and possibly supernatural (not currently available on Amazon.com).
  • Friday the 13th Ultimate Collection might be another good anti-Valentine's Day pick, although sadly there aren't specifics on what's included in the collection, especially since there was another 'Ultimate Collection' released last summer. Amazon.com notes it's 736 minutes and that Kevin Bacon is in it; so if you are a time math whiz you might be able to determine how many, or if all, of the films are included.
