DVD Release List – 1/20/09

 

 
 
Gotta keep these introductory comments short, since I’m posting in between seeing a bunch of Sundance movies. Though to be honest, there’s not a lot to tout this week anyway. Criterion—as usual—has the goods, with a well-designed two-disc edition of Magnificent Obsession (featuring both the John Stahl and Douglas Sirk versions), as well as DVD and Blu-ray editions of Gregory Nava’s acclaimed early ‘80s indie El Norte. On the cult TV front, you can treat yourself to complete editions of the docu-series MGM: When The Lion Roars and the cheeky superhero cartoon Powerpuff Girls. Lastly, this is a strong week for interesting misfires, including the gothic computer animated Igor, the beautifully designed (but dramatically inert) City Of Ember, and the atonal horror musical Repo! The Genetic Opera. Beyond that, you’re on your own.
 
Now back to the screening room.
