|A Serious Man|
DVD Release Date: February 9, Universal Studios Home Entertainment
Everyone thought that the bob-haired, coin-flipping terror Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men was the apex of weird, but, with their next film, the Coen Brothers managed to become even more bizarre. A Serious Man, about a down-on-his-luck college professor, manages to include dybbuks, rambling rabbis, weird science, and more to try and work out the meaning of life—or at least the meaning of life as the Coens see it.
|The Wolf Man: Special Edition, Universal Legacy Series|
DVD Release Date: February 2, Universal Studios Home Entertainment
How will Benicio Del Toro stack up to Lon Chaney Jr.? Before The Wolfman comes out on February 12, check out the 1941 original—then you can judge for yourself which film is better at capturing the art of lycanthropy. (Yes, we will take any and every opportunity to use the word “lycanthropy.”)
DVD Release Date: February 2, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
If you loved Shaun of the Dead, you’ll be pleased to learn that the genre of “zombie comedy” is still going strong. Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson play unlikely buddies struggling to survive the post-zombie apocalypse and hunting for one of the world’s few remaining Twinkies. Their banter keeps the movie light—but there’s plenty of zombie gore for those fans of the juicier elements of the genre.
