All that Jazz: Criterion Collection (Blu-Ray)

"It's showtime!" In this part film à clef, part musical phantasmagoria, director/choreographer Bob Fosse takes a Felliniesque look at the life of a driven entertainer. Joe Gideon Roy Scheider, channeling Fosse is the ultimate work and pleasure-aholic, as he knocks back a daily dose of amphetamines to juggle a new Broadway production while editing his new movie, not to mention ex-wife Audrey Leland Palmer, steady girlfriend Kate Ann Reinking, a young daughter, and various conquests. Joe cannot, however, avoid intimations of mortality from white-clad vision Angelique Jessica Lange that lead him to look back at his life as he heads for a near-inevitable coronary and his departure from this mortal coil with the appropriate razzle-dazzle.

They Came Together (Blu-Ray)

This parody of the romantic-comedy genre stars Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd as the archetypical couple, who's staple movie moments like the meetcute, jealous exes, scary in-laws, and jerky best friends are lampooned in the awesomely bizarre, da-da-esque traditions of director David Wain's previous efforts like Wet Hot American Summer.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Blu-Ray)

DC Comics should watch its back, because as the creative minds behind the currently untitled Superman vs. Batman movie scramble with rewrites even as it begins shooting in Michigan, Marvel Entertainment continues their successful run on the big screen with Captain America: The Winter Soldier -- a superior sequel that, at the very least, stands shoulder-to-shoulder with its whizbang predecessor. As Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) struggles to adjust to life in the modern world, a dangerous rescue mission on a ship in the Indian Ocean leaves him convinced that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D. may be compromising the organization's integrity with a new initiative known as Project Insight. A clandestine endeavor conceived by politically connected World Security Council head Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford), Project Insight involves the use of three enormous, heavily armed, satellite-connected "helicarriers" to preserve world peace.

CELEBRATING 15 YEARS

A decade and a half ago I was sitting in a hotel room in East Lyme, Connecticut waiting for my brother and a few friends. We were going to have a bit of fun gambling at Mohegan Sun casino and I’d left work early and beat them there by a few hours. I had my laptop and didn’t have an internet connection, but had been working on my first web site: DVD Authority.
