DVD Review: Rugrats: The Complete Series - 26-Disc Set
Over 67 hours of old-school animation, this set marks the first time ever that all nine seasons of the venerable '90s-era favorite have been collected together. Announcement: Words on Bathroom Walls Due on Home Video November 17
"If you can't trust your mind, trust your heart," as the teen romance story arrives on Digital on November 10 and Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand a week later. Directed by Thor Freudenthal. Blu-ray Review: The Kitchen (2019)
Not sure went wrong here. Oscar-nominated screenwriter making her directorial debut. Cult fave comic miniseries as source material. Three great stars - Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss - headlining. Blu-ray Review: 10 Minutes Gone
A heist thriller with two marquee names but not enough thrills. Bruce Willis is really a supporting player here to Michael Chiklis. Should've been more interesting. Holiday Gift Alert! Now on DVD: Barry: The Complete First Season
Double Emmy winner (for star/writer/director/creator Bill Hader and co-star Henry Winkler) this HBO Original Series is funny and quirky.

The Movie Spew

The Movie Spew offers a daily dose of the latest rumors, announcements, and trailers surrounding upcoming film releases. This isn’t about mud-slinging, gossip, or celebrity worship (I’m not entirely above that, this just isn’t the place). It’s about finding the most interesting developments in the film world and sending them out there to you fine readers with little brushstrokes of irreverent humor. Why toil through the Internet’s seemingly endless stream of movie blogs for the latest news when you can come here and get it all in one concise article with a few jokes to make it all slide down smoothly? Feel free to join me on this film-tastic voyage, I can promise only a minimal number of casualties along the way.

This Week in Film: The Okay, the Bad, and the Worse

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you really don’t have much to look forward to this week at the movies: Reviews of "Jesse and Celeste Forever," "Total Recall," and "360."

July 19, 2012 10:10 PM ET
This week in film is predictably and understandably defined by one guy in a rubber suit. Yep, I’m talkin' 'bout Batman: Reviews of "The Dark Knight Rises," "Ice Age: Continental Drift," and "To Rome with Love."
