Captain America: Civil War It would be a great week to go to the movies. Here are DVD Talk's recent theatrical reviews: Captain America: Civil War - undeniably one of the better films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe... it is a lot of fun; Tale of Tales - three strange and morbid tales of kings and magic taken from the writings of 17th Century Italian poet Giambattista Basile; and Midnight Special - director Jeff Nichols' latest offering is a nice work, but while the pieces really were all prepared to slide together they just got stuck in the mud before they had the chance. Other recent films include: The Jungle Book, The Huntsman: Winter's War, Hardcore Henry, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Deadpool, Zoolander 2, Hail, Caesar!, and Room. Check out these, and more, in DVDTalk's Theatrical Review section.

The Jim Gaffigan Show: Season 1 Interested in the latest TV on DVD reviews? DVD Talk has you covered! This week's notable entries include: The Jim Gaffigan Show: Season 1 - Gaffigan's comedy cuts across plenty of demographics, with an act that's quirky yet relatable and his sitcom offers more of what people already enjoy about him; Crazylegs Crane - these cartoons are a bit simple, but definitely funny and it's amazing how good they look on this disc; and Nickelodeon Favorites: Whiskers & Paws - this themed variety collection is cute enough with a broad range of shows and more than 2.5 hours of total content.

Cult Cinema: An Arrow Video Companion Fans of quality Blu-ray releases should be familar with Arrow Video, a British label that first officially crossed over to the R1 side of the Atlantic early last year. Releasing an expansive yet carefully curated slate of titles, Arrow funds and oversees the remastering of much of what they release. The results over the past few years have invariably been achingly gorgeous. Filled with copious extras and impressive booklets Arrow's releases are something to watch for and this hardcover book is no exception. Cult Cinema: An Arrow Video Companion collects twenty standout essays from Arrow's catalog along with ten new pieces, each penned by a seasoned film critic, cult cinema historian, or filmmaker. The result is immediately striking, from its painted cover art by the legendary Graham Humphreys to the weight of its glossy pages. Every one of these essays strikes a brilliant balance between being entertaining and genuinely informative, and the book comes highly recommended.

Son of Saul There are some new titles coming out that might make it worth a trip to the video store this week. Check out these recent releases: Top Gun [review] - one of the biggest blockbuster films of the eighties, Top Gun is still a fun watch, though a little dated; and Arabian Nights [review] - director Migues Gomes uses the framework of the Persian fables to tell the personal tale of the many socioeconomic problems Portugal has faced since the economic collapse in 2008... the sheer ambition is hard not to praise; and A Kiss Before Dying [review] - while this film never quite hits masterpiece status, it is well-directed, tightly paced, and comprised of good technical values and very solid acting from an interesting cast. Be sure to check out our DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

The Revenant This week the DVD Talk Review Database has some great new entries, including a few discs you may have overlooked. Recent DVD reviews include: The Revenant - an easy film to get completely absorbed by and the end result is often jaw-dropping and will likely stick in your mind for days afterwards; What's The Worst That Could Happen? - a meager attempt to pair up two completely opposite performers (Martin Lawrence and Danny DeVito) but a handful of solid belly-laughs and quotable lines end up salvaging, to some extent, what many consider to be a missed opportunity; and Winners Tape All - the faux documentary will no doubt work for many as a nostalgia trip to the pre-Netflix era, when you would browse rental stores for hours and sometimes take chances on the lesser-known titles Visit the DVD Talk Review Database for all the latest reviews including an entire section devoted to reviews of DVDs out this week.

Archer: Season 6 Interested in the latest TV on DVD reviews? DVD Talk has you covered! This week's notable entries include: Archer: Season 6 - returning to some of their covert ops roots in this season, the show is still funny and does a nice job of broadening its characters this time around; The Expanse: Season One - this is a bit unusual for a SyFy original series: not only is it actually sci-fi, but it's quite good at times and shows plenty of promise during this debut season; and War and Peace - shot on location in Russia, and boasting lavish sets and costumes, this six-hour, eight-episode miniseries give a shiny, new interpretation to Tolstoy's classic work.

Son of Saul Some great discs are being released this week. Check out these new movies: Son of Saul [review] - the 2016 Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film this story of a man risking his life to give a dead young boy a proper Jewish burial in the Auschwitz concentration camp is powerfully undeniable and a stunning movie; and Krampus [review] - Michael Dougherty's film blends fantasy, horror, comedy, and demented visual whimsy in with a dysfunctional family Christmas flick... it is infectiously fun; and The Kennedy Films of Robert Drew & Associates [review] - this collection is a must-own both for history buffs and those interested in the development of documentary film.
