I really enjoy using the phrase “home video”. It’s a term that doesn’t get used that much anymore, and that’s kind of sad. The two-word combo was much more popular in the heyday of the VHS tape, but it’s one I still find myself leaning on more often than not. It probably makes me sound old and weird and stuck in a bygone era, but that’s a proverbial cross I’m willing to bear. Anyway, enough about that. Let’s get to the good stuff.
Haven’t seen director Joe Carnahan’s “The Grey”? Shame on you. As unfortunate as that it, you can correct this problem on May 22nd, 2012, when the film lands its wolf-bitten behind on Blu-ray. The disc has quite a few features, though the only one that really interests me is the commentary with Carnahan. Should be quite interesting to hear him discuss the process behind this surprisingly emotional tale of survival and the triumph of the human spirit. God, I’ve always wanted to say something like that.
Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein’s “Underworld: Awakening”, meanwhile, will become available for your at-home enjoyment on May 8th, 2012. The disc will reportedly contain some featurettes and music video. You know, I was on the fence about picking this one up on Blu-ray until I read that it came packaged with a music video. All kidding aside, the fourth entry in the franchise is much stronger than the previous effort, and once again allows Kate Beckinsale to slip into something constructed of form-fitting leather. Nice.
What about DVD, you ask? Don’t worry! Both of these flicks are headed to that format, as well. After all, DVDs are still a part of the home video experience, regardless of what retailers and industry insiders would have you believe. And feel free to add “home video” to your vernacular. If you’re unfamiliar with these titles, take a peek at the trailers below.
