This week brings some truly eclectic offerings for Blu-ray and DVD aficionados of all stripes. Two of the year’s best-reviewed films — sci-fi thriller Ex Machina and low-budget horror flick It Follows — make their home video debuts. (And I absolutely plan on getting my hands on both.) Movie fans can also pick up a pair of sequels (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), plan a date night with the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation (The Longest Ride), or check out the extended version of a summer blockbuster from last year (X-Men: Days of Future Past — The Rogue Cut.) Meanwhile, TV watchers can scoop up season 5 of Adventure Time or the debut season of superhero cop drama Powers.
Here at UpcomingDiscs, we’ll be reviewing some additional titles that will be available on July 14. So be sure to check in for our takes on Clouds of Sils Maria, All Quiet on the Western Front: The Uncut Edition, WKRP in Cincinnati: The Complete Third Season, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, Borderline, Singularity Principle, and a pair of double features in The Outing/The Godsend, and Cellar Dweller/Catacombs. We’d love to hear from you: which of this week’s releases are you most excited about? And since we have stuff flying into UpcomingDiscs headquarters throughout the week, be sure to keep an eye on this post for updates.
