CATEGORIES Movie NewsThe week's biggest release is not a new flick straight from the theater desperate to recoup some profits, but a collector's edition of one of the greatest movies of all time. Whether you're DVD or Blu-ray, streaming or rental, we've got the breakdown on all the home entertainment releases for the week -- as well as a special exclusive look at the "Casablanca" 70th anniversary Blu-ray box set.
Moviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Corman's World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel" What's It About? "Corman's World" offers a comprehensive look at the king of Hollywood B-movies, Roger Corman; the documentary features interviews with everyone from Jack Nicholson to Martin Scorsese ruminating on the filmmaker's long and notorious career. See It Because: It's an amazingly entertaining exploration of one of the most fascinating corners of film history. While the highbrow merits of Corman's movies are practically non-existent, his prolific and innovative work ethic has given us decades of film pop fun.

"A Dangerous Method" With David Cronenberg directing, Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud and Michael Fassbender as Carl Jung, we're left with only one question... Why was this so underwhelming?

"Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close"

"In the Land of Blood and Honey" Angelina Jolie made her directorial debut on this drama about a romance blossoming amidst the Bosnian War.
