Hercules (Blu-Ray)

Disney's animation team dipped into the rich well of ancient mythology for this musical comedy. The son of Greek gods Zeus voice of Rip Torn and Hera Samantha Eggar, Hercules voice of Josh Keaton is stolen as a boy by the minions of Hades voice of James Woods, lord of the underworld. Forced to live among humans, Hercules is turned into a half-god and half-mortal after drinking a forbidden potion brewed by Hades' right hand men, Pain voice of Bob Goldthwait and Panic voice of Matt Frewer. Now Hercules has the remarkable strength of a god, but is trapped in the body of a human, and before he learns how to use his power properly he goes through a typically adolescent awkward period. In order to become a god and return to his home on Mount Olympus, Hercules must prove himself a true hero on Earth.

Draft Day (Blu-Ray)

Ivan Reitman's Draft Day stars Kevin Costner as Sonny Weaver Jr., the GM of the Cleveland Browns. With 13 hours until the beginning of the NFL draft, Sonny is informed by the team's owner (Frank Langella) that if Sonny doesn't make a splash and generate ticket sales, he's going to be fired. That prompts the GM to take a trade offer from another team that gives him the first pick in the draft, in exchange for three furure first-round picks. The move outrages the Browns' head coach, and forces all of the team's scouts to dig up what they can find about the pick everyone, including the owner, expects them to make -- a highly touted QB from Wisconsin. Meanwhile, Weaver is drawn to a talented linebacker who has family issues to deal with and is known for having a hot temper.

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.
