Animal Factory is probably more noteworthy for the performances by Edward Furlong and Willem Dafoe than offering anything new in terms of story, and commentary, about prison life. Still worth watching, however.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the animated superhero action-adventure, Justice League: The New Frontier starring the voice talents of David Boreanaz, Miguel Ferrer, Neil Patrick Harris, Lucy Lawless, Jeremy Sisto and others.

Chilly Scenes of Winter is a wonderful little romantic-drama features two charming performances from John Heard and Mary Beth Hurt. This Blu-ray released through Twilight Time offers okay video and audio transfers while the bonus material, not surprisingly, is on the limited side.
Although hardly great, C.H.U.D. is a fun 1980s flick with some OK performances from an impressive cast led way by future Home Alone alums John Heard and Daniel Stern. The story is goofy but still classic so for any fans of the era, it might make for a enjoyable trip down memory lane.
My Fellow Americans is sort of the prototypical comedy from the 1990s and although not terribly well written, it’s a passably amusing film that excels due to the talents of Jack Lemmon and James Garner, with some honorable mention to John Heard who elicited a few laughs out of me.
Cutter’s Way is, I’d say, on the underappreciated side of things. Not only is the story compelling but the performances by Jeff Bridges and John Heard are exceptional to go along with Lisa Echhorn. The Blu-ray released through Twilight Time has a decent video transfer, good audio but does fall short in the features department.
Cat People is another weird and certainly unusual cult classic released through Shout’s Scream Factory line. The Blu-ray offers up adequate if not, at least to these eyes, over sharpened picture, and solid lossless audio tracks (5.1 and 2.0). The bonus features may seem light but with more than 45-minutes worth of interviews, it’s actually well put together getting every viewpoint on the project.
This is yet another double-dip, the second on Blu-ray, offering the same content, including audio and video, as the 2009 release. Don’t get me wrong, this is a wonderful movie, a favorite of mine since I saw it back in the 90s, but if you already own the other Blu-ray you can skip this release all together. However, if you haven’t picked it up, now’s a good enough time with a relatively low $20 SRP.
