'Skyfall' lands on DVD and Blu-ray
007 is money in the bank. Big, big, money. Skyfall broke the billion-dollar box-office threshold with $1.1 billion in worldwide ticket sales. That makes it the highest-grossing Bond movie ever, by a significant enough margin to account for inflation. This week's DVD, Blu-ray and digital download release will add hundreds of millions more to the coffers.

Find out when are the Oscar contenders are on Blu-ray and DVD
More than any recent year, it is darned difficult to catch up with the Oscar races. You either have to go to the theatre -- multiple times -- or steal bootleg copies off the Internet. I personally abhor pirating. So it is back-to-the-bijou.

Pixar's 'Brave' stunning on DVD [Photos]
Brave is absolutely ravishing in Blu-ray. Of course, it helps that I already love this animation -- the first Pixar feature set in an historical period and with a female protagonist at its core.

Spend all day on 'Route 66'
Some things linger from childhood, like significant books, haunting tunes, important movies and a handful of television series. For me, one of those ghosts is Route 66.

'Safe House' DVD compelling

Raimi's 'Spider-Man' gets new life on Blu-ray
The most common movie question I hear every summer -- when not being grilled about the latest summer blockbuster -- is simple and complicated: "What should I watch tonight?"

Smart, bloody 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' on DVD [Photos]
Coming to a theatre near you: Steven Spielberg's sombre biopic, Lincoln. Already at hand on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download: Timur Bekmambetov's historical-horror-thriller mash-up, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. I suggest seeing the genre piece before tackling Spielberg's Oscar-bound opus.

Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' DVD stunning
Ridley Scott's Prometheus, a putative prequel to his 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien, has mystified and frustrated even the most loyal fans of the cult franchise. Yet it also holds viewers in its thrall because it deals with one of humanity's most basic yearnings: the quest for the meaning of life.

'Jaws' even more terrorizing on Blu-ray
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Steven Spielberg had to go and restore Jaws, his 1975 classic. On Tuesday, Jaws makes its Blu-ray debut with a spectacular new restoration. Personally, I won't be swimming for the rest of the summer, except in my bathtub.

DVD releases good for a laugh
What makes you laugh, besides obvious inspirations like burping babies and frolicking puppies? When it comes to movies, the answer is subjective.

Monster DVD collection a scream [Photos]
As Universal Studios celebrates its 100 anniversary, it was inevitable its most famous monster movies would become part of the show. Sure enough, here they are on Blu-ray this week in a horror-tastic box set that does them all justice.

'Hunger Games' DVD a feast
Like The Twilight Saga, which is coming to a merciful end with the final big-screen instalment in November, The Hunger Games is both a publishing and a movie phenomenon. This means each dystopian franchise has now carved out a permanent niche in pop culture history. The similarities end there.

Sinatra, John Wayne classic on DVD
I write this column from the Cannes Film Festival, although it is not about Cannes. But this year's 65th anniversary poster for the festival features an iconic photograph of Marilyn Monroe blowing out a birthday candle with the most sensuous lips in human history. That got me thinking about whose celebrity survives after death and in what manner.
