This Week on DVD: Friday the 13th, Family Guy: Volume 7, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man


It’s a terrible week for new DVDs, although there are a bunch of pretty high-profile releases on Blu-ray that are bound to sell more than a few copies. The only real major releases are the Friday the 13th remake and Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail, and… The Cell 2. Yikes. Also out is the little-seen documentary Scott Walker: 30 Century Man, and the Criterion Collection re-release of Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (on both standard DVD and Blu-ray). Other major Blu-ray titles include Ghostbusters, Spaceballs and the first two seasons of Lost. Will you be spending any money this week?

Around the Web:

    “Bergman Island” is a horrible title, but those interviews are fucking amazing.

  • Henrik

    “This resulted in the most breathtakingly candid series of interviews that the famously reclusive director ever took part in, later edited into the feature-length film Bergman Island.”

    Scratch my recommendation. I recommend you torrent the full interviews (3×60 minutes, one on theatre, one on film, one on himself) instead.

    theres also a Spinal Tap DVD/CD combo out today for around 10 bucks with reworked versions of classic tracks and some new material. DVD is them in character doing some retrospective of their work or something.

    Scott Walker is just coming out on DVD now? I saw that at Hot Docs two years ago. Great flick, anyone into music should get a little something out of it.
