Even though I don’t love every single one of his movies, Steven Spielberg will always be one of my favorite directors.  He was one of the key figures in making me a die-hard movie fan.  His worldwide influence is undeniable, he shaped Hollywood in the modern era, and he’s been going strong for decades (there are going to be so many Jaws retrospective pieces next year for the film’s 40th anniversary).  This fall, Universal will release a new 8-film Blu-ray collection of his work.  The Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection will include digitally remastered versions of Duel and The Sugarland Express (both their first time on Blu-ray, and the first-ever widescreen presentation for Duel in the U.S. and Canada) as well as the Blu-ray debuts for 1941 (theatrical and extended versions) and Always.  The set also includes Jaws, E.T.

24-complete-series-slice

Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day is 24: The Complete Series.  When 24 first started airing, it was a moderate hit, but its popularity didn’t explode until it came to DVD.  It was absolutely perfect for binge viewing.  The show doesn’t really work in syndication because it had to be appointment viewing.  DVD is the ideal format for the show, and now you can own all eight seasons plus 24: Redemption for $109.99, which is 69% off the MSRP of $349.98.  That’s a good price to see hours upon hours of Jack Bauer screaming and torturing people.  It will also get you ready for 24: Live Another Day, a 12-episode limited series that will air in May 2014.

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY Extended Edition Set for Digital Download on October 22nd and 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on November 5th [UPDATED]

by     Posted 1 year, 51 days ago

hobbit-extended-edition-3d-blu-ray-box-cover-slice

If for some reason you thought The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey needed to be even longer and filled with material that slowed down the plot, then you should get ready for the upcoming extended edition.  Warner Bros. will release the extended edition, which contains 13 minutes of additional footage, on digital platforms on October 22nd.  On November 5th, the extended edition will be released on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD along with nearly nine hours of new bonus features.  For me, that’s worth way more than the 13 extra minutes.  Also, if nine hours of bonus features becomes the norm for each extended edition, that’s pretty damned impressive to have 27 hours of bonus material spread across three movies.

Hit the jump for full details and pricing. [Update: The first clip from the Extended Edition has been released online and is now included after the jump.]
