Last Resort: The Complete Series
Sony Pictures Entertainment
The complete, edge-of-your-seat series about the fugitive crew of a U.S. nuclear submarine is now on DVD! Andre Braugher, Scott Speedman, Daisy Betts, Camille de Pazzis, Dichen Lachman, Daniel Lissing, Sahr Ngaujah, Autumn Reeser, Jessy Schram and Robert Patrick round out the cast in this suspenseful tale of a Navy crew that seeks refuge on a remote island and declares itself a sovereign state while attempting to uncover the truth behind a suspicious nuclear attack directive. Special features include 13 all-new featurettes, cast and crew interviews and more.
The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis: The Complete Series
The counter-culture TV hit co-starring Gilligan's Island funnyman Bob Denver is finally on DVD in an amazing, collectible 20-DVD box set containing all 147 episodes from 1959-1963. Dwayne Hickman plays Dobie, a middle-class 17-year-old whose main goal in life is to find the girl of his dreams, while Dobie’s beatnik friend Maynard's (Denver) passion is to avoid work at any cost. Also featuring Warren Beatty and Tuesday Weld, the timeless show triggered a sea change in sitcoms and dramas which would focus on the hopes, dreams and angst of teenagers for decades to come. Special bonus features include original rare pilot footage and bonus episodes from Love That Bob! (The Bob Cummings Show) and The Stu Erwin Show.
The Producers: Collector's Edition on Blu-ray
The Mel Brooks comedy classic that went on to become a Tony-winning Broadway musical is now on Blu-ray in a special collector's edition featuring a deleted scene, sketch gallery, a making-of doc and 2012 interview with Brooks. Gene Wilder and Zero Mostel star in the high-strung comedy about a low-rent Broadway producer and his accountant who realize they can make more money from some gullible investors by delivering a flop -- but to their horror, their train-wreck musical Springtime for Hitler becomes a smash hit!
Tai Chi Hero
Well Go USA
From Zero to Hero! The follow-up to Tai Chi Zero is an action-packed, over-the-top martial arts-steampunk adventure in which a legendary prophecy may spell doom for the civilians of a legendary town and it's up to Lu Chan (Jayden Yuan) to save the day. The cast also includes franchise newcomer Peter Stormare. Bonus material includes the behind-the-scenes featurette From Zero to Hero: The Making of Tai Chi Hero.
Kentucky Fried Movie on Blu-ray
The lewd, cult classic sketch-comedy movie -- from director John Landis and the makers of Airplane! and The Naked Gun -- where anything goes (spoofing blaxploitation films, news shows, adult movies, TV commercials, kung fu flicks and more) is now on Blu-ray! Special features include an audio commentary by Landis, writers Jerry Zucker, David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and producer Robert K. Weiss; plus a conversation with David and Jerry Zucker.
North & South
The classic BBC miniseries starring Star Trek: The Next Generation's Patrick Stewart (with a full head of hair!) is finally on DVD. In the vein of Pride and Prejudice, North & South is a slow-burn romance that depicts the tensions of the Victorian era as traditional society clashed with the coming of the modern world.
