Blu-ray & DVD: The Digital Dread Report for 3/15

*Check out our other Release Date Pages: Blu-ray & DVD, Theatrical, VOD, TV.

There's only one release that we're truly fending for this week, but at least it's a big one.

*Be sure to click the pics to order yourself some flicks!

"After the shocking deaths of S4, the season begins with a power vacuum that protagonists across Westeros and Essos look to fill. At Castle Black, Jon Snow struggles to balance the demands of the Night's Watch with those of newly-arrived Stannis Baratheon, who styles himself the rightful king of Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei scrabbles to hold on to power in King's Landing amidst the Tyrells and the rise of a religious group led by the enigmatic High Sparrow, while Jaime embarks on a secret mission. Across the Narrow Sea, Arya seeks an old friend while a fugitive Tyrion finds a new cause. And as danger mounts in Meereen, Daenerys Targaryen finds that her tenuous hold on the city requires some hard sacrifices. This season features some of the most explosive scenes yet, as the promise that "winter is coming" becomes more ominous than ever before."

One of the top 5 shows on TV, Game of Thrones is always a Day One buy for us when it hits Blu-ray; not only because the show is excellent (which it is), but because there's no better way to watch it than on Blu-ray disc (because there absolutely isn't.)

Season 5 threw a bunch of surprises at us that weren't in the books, and we ate them up like fools; the part with the White Walkers at the wall was just phenomenal. Going forward, we're expecting a ton of material that wasn't in the books to show up on screen, and we're excited to see what they do with the show.

This is a Must Own of the highest order, but if you're going to grab yourself a copy, do so this week before it jumps back up in price. TV seasons always go back up in price after the first week of release, at least for a few months.

  • Invasion U.S.A. is one of our favorite Chuck Norris flicks, because we're 80's kids. Not sure if any of us will buy a copy or not, but it's a fun one for sure.
  • Gaspar Noe is a different kind of filmmaker, and not one of our faves, but his fans will surely be frothing at the mouth to get their hands on his newest sexually-charged movie, Love
  • My Boyfriends Back is a cheesy little Horror Comedy from 1993 that we'll be taking a pass on... although it stars a young Matthew Fox and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Traci Lind was smoking hot... so maybe we'll check a copy out, for nostalgia's sake.
  • Arrow's release of Rage of Honor is sure to be fantastic, as it's one of the best Martial Arts flicks of the 80's, and stars the brilliant Sho Kosugi. This one would make a great double feature with Pray for Death
  • And everything else, as always, is a crap-shoot.
