The calendar says it’s December, but it sure doesn’t feel that way down here at the UpcomingDiscs ranch. While we patiently wait for it to get cold enough to get the fireplace going — or at least make us reach for a light jacket — we’ve got another week’s worth of hot releases to review. Lionsgate gives us Amy, which examines the (tragically short) life of singer Amy Winehouse and is one of the best-reviewed movies of the year. But that’s not all: Lionsgate also doubles down with Mississippi Grind, adheres to a Zero Tolerance policy, keeps watch with The Guardsman, settles down with Some Kind of Beautiful, and washes away Cooties. Meanwhile, Image Entertainment goes Where Children Play, and Cinedigm enlists War Pigs.
And since we had to find *some* way to get in the Christmas spirit around here…congratulations to November’s Tuesday Round Up contest winner Sherry McKay, who won Jingle Bell Rocks on DVD.
If you entered and didn’t win, don’t fret: a new contest kicks off right now. Once a month we’re going to give away a free DVD title to a lucky winner who comments in our weekly Round-Up posts. All you have to do is comment in a Round-Up post — like this one! — and tell us which of the featured titles you’re most excited to watch or read about. The winners and their prizes will be announced the first week of every month right here in our Tuesday Round-Up post. You can’t win if you don’t comment. Contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada.
One last reminder before signing off for the week: if you’re shopping for anything on Amazon — perhaps as you cross items off your Christmas list — and you do it through one of our links, it’ll help keep the lights on here at UpcomingDiscs. See ya next week!
CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED: Congrats to Vicki Wurgler, who won Field of Lost Shoes on DVD.

I really want to see “Amy.” I like a lot of her music and still listen to her first album. She always seemed to be in character, with that beehive hair and exaggerated makeup, and with her usually noticeable slender figure I wasn’t surprised that she came to have such a tragic and early death. Another sad tale of a talented artist.

Some Kind Of Beautiful sounds like a very good movie.

‘Amy’ would be my selection. Winehouse was such an incredible talent. Rest in peace to her & condolences to all her friends, family & fans.
