poster BPM (Beats Per Minute) Trailers

DVD Buy From Amazon

Writer-director Robin Campillo’s follow-up to Eastern Boys follows ACT UP AIDS activists in Paris in the early 1990s as they fight against the indifference of the government. Though it was one of this year's most notable Oscar snubs, BPM took home the the second-place prize at last year's Cannes, where it also won the International Critics Prize (FIPRESCI).

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

This animated feature from director Nora Twomey (co-director on The Secret of Kells) tells the story of 11-year-old Parvana as she grows up under Taliban rule and puts herself in danger to provide for her family. An adaptation of Deborah Ellis’ bestselling novel, the well-reviewed film is one of five nominees for best animated feature at this weekend's Oscars.

poster Faces Places Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Metacritic's highest-scoring movie of 2017, this documentary by 89-year-old director Agnes Varda (The Beaches of Agnes, The Gleaners & I) and 33-year-old photo-muralist J.R. captures their collaborative energy as they roam the French countryside in J.R.’s photographic van taking pictures of working-class locals and displaying the gigantic images on houses, barns, walls and trains.

poster Lady Bird Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Actress Greta Gerwig's feature directorial debut is one of 2017's best-reviewed films and an Oscar best picture nominee. The dramedy stars Saoirse Ronan as Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson, a high school senior determined to escape Sacramento, California in 2002. As she battles through her senior year, Lady Bird gets tough love from her strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf, giving perhaps a career-best performance), comfort from her father (Tracy Letts), and interest from local boys played by Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet.

poster Thor: Ragnarok Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

After Thor and Thor: The Dark World, it would be hard for Ragnarok not to be the best film in the Thor trilogy. Even so, it's a terrific addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by any measure. Much of the critical praise has been for the comedic tone director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) has injected into this lumbering franchise. While not every critic is on board, many moviegoers seemed happy to hang out with Thor, Bruce Banner, and their new friend Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) as they deal with Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster and Cate Blanchett’s Hela.

poster Call Me by Your Name Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Another of 2017's best-reviewed and most honored films, Name comes from director Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, I Am Love). Set in northern Italy in the summer of 1983, the drama is an adaptation of André Aciman’s novel about the romance between 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer), the 24-year-old assistant to Elio’s professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg). The drama also features a script by Academy Award nominee James Ivory and music by fellow Oscar nominee Sufjan Stevens.

poster The Disaster Artist Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Adapted by the Oscar-nominated team of Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Fault in Our Stars and The Spectacular Now) and directed by and starring James Franco, this charming 2017 comedy chronicles the production of one of the worst movies ever made: Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. Franco remained in character as he directed the film, adopting Wiseau’s unique accent and strange combination of ineptitude and earnestness.

poster I, Tonya Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Craig Gillespie (The Finest Hours, Lars and the Real Girl) directs Margot Robbie as infamous figure skater Tonya Harding in this unconventional, somewhat comedic biopic that received good reviews upon its release late last year. Joining Robbie are Sebastian Stan as her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and Allison Janney in a highly-praised performance as her mother LaVona Golden. After winning six Emmys, Janney has a strong chance to pick up her first Oscar this weekend.

poster Justice League Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

The fifth film in the inconsistent (at best) DC Extended Universe followed on the heels of the franchise's biggest critical and commercial success yet, Wonder Woman, though it didn't come anywhere close to matching that film's critical success. The latter film's Gal Gadot returns here, joined by Ben Affleck's Batman, Henry Cavill's Superman, Ezra Miller's The Flash, Ray Fisher's Cyborg, Amy Adams' Lois Lane, and Jason Momoa's Aquaman. Newcomers include J. K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Ciarán Hinds as the film's main villain, Steppenwolf. Director Zack Snyder stepped during post-production after a family tragedy, and Joss Whedon filled in to complete the movie after punching up the script.

poster The Shape of Water Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Could The Shape of Water become the first sci-fi film ever to win best picture at the Academy Awards? Nominated for a year-leading 13 Oscars overall (and as close to a best picture frontrunner as there is, currently), Guillermo Del Toro's adult fairy tale (co-written with Vanessa Taylor) is set in 1963 America, where Sally Hawkins plays Elisa, a mute who forms a romantic connection with a creature in a high-security government laboratory. The strong supporting cast includes Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Richard Jenkins.

poster Downsizing Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

A rare misfire from writer-director Alexander Payne, Downsizing combines a bit of sci-fi and (mild) comedy to take a somewhat satirical look at American society. The film stars Matt Damon as an everyman who decides to take advantage of new shrinking technology in an attempt to improve his life. However, he finds that his new community, Leisureland, has the same problems as the one he left. It is Payne's first film since 1996 to have a Metascore below 80.

poster Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher) directs this comedic sequel to the 1995 children's book adaptation Jumanji, which starred Robin Williams. The new film has, unsurprisingly, an all-new cast that centers on Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. It also has five credited screenwriters, which you might take to be a bad sign. And you'd be right, though a decent number of reviewers find the film to be pleasant enough family fun.

poster Pitch Perfect 3 Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

The Bellas reunite for a USO tour in this continuation (and possibly conclusion) of the franchise that began in 2012 with Pitch Perfect and middled in 2015 with Pitch Perfect 2. Returning stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks, and John Michael Higgins are joined by newcomers Ruby Rose and John Lithgow. Critics feel that it lacks many of its predecessors' charms.

poster The Work Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

Named best documentary at last year's SXSW Film Festival, this feature from Gethin Aldous and Jairus McLeary takes an intimate look at a four-day group therapy session at Folsom Prison. The film highlights the work of the Inside Circle Foundation by following three civilians as they join the inmates and they all engage in transformative rehabilitative work aimed at reducing prison violence, lowering recidivism, and preparing prisoners for life after their release.

poster Last Men in Aleppo Trailers

DVD Buy From Amazon

Firas Fayyad’s documentary follows Khalid, Subhi, and Mahmoud, founding members of The White Helmets, as they rush to save lives in war-ravaged Aleppo, Syria. An Academy Award nominee for best documentary feature, Aleppo won the Grand Jury Documentary prize at last year’s Sundance Film Festival.

poster Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailers

Blu-ray and DVD Buy From Amazon

It's not the highest-scoring Star Wars movie ever—merely the 2nd-highest. The first of what could be four Star Wars films from writer-director Rian Johnson continues the story of Kylo Ren/Ben Solo (Adam Driver), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), General Leia Organa (the late Carrie Fisher), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), and Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) Joining the cast are Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran, as well as, everyone’s favorite new toy, Porgs. It may be hard to believe given the somewhat bloated running time of Last Jedi, but much was cut from the theatrical release: 14 deleted scenes will be available on the Blu-ray.
