This Week on DVD: 13 Assassins, Hobo with a Shotgun, Of Gods and Men

This week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases are completely bereft of big budgets and big stars, but if you’re a fan of genre flicks, you just might find something worth buying. Among the more noteworthy titles hitting stores we have Takashi Miike’s 13 Assassins, one of the best reviewed films of the year thus far, along with Jason Eisener’s unhinged Hobo with a Shotgun starring Rutger Hauer. Also worth mentioning: Xavier Beauvois’ Of Gods and Men, a new three-movie Monty Python box set, Wolfgang Petersen’s director’s cut of Das Boot on Blu-ray, and the horror documentary Nightmares in Red, White and Blue. TV releases include The Cape: The Complete Series, Eureka: Season 4.0, and the Japanese continuation of the Transformers: The Headmasters animated series. What will you be buying or renting this week? Check out the full list of releases after the jump.

    Can you guys watch 13 Assassins instead of Zookeeper?

    It looks like it will be Horrible Bosses / Bad Teacher this week, but maybe we can do 13 Assassins next week instead of Harry Potter.

    Sean,that would be nice. The last Harry Potter review was very awkward.

  • antho42

    Watch the international, not the Japanese cut.

  • KeithTalent

    Bah, no 13 Assassins up here for two more months. :(

  • Fatbologna

    Just order it from Amazon.com! Mine’s in the mail and about 2 days away! :)

  • KeithTalent

    Amazon.com always rapes me with fees and taxes. :/

    I think I will get it from B&N when the Criterion sale starts next week, since I’ll be buying a bunch of crap during that time anyway.

    It wasn’t awkward, it was shitty.
