I receive more DVDs in the mail than I can possibly ever review, and here I run them down once a week. These are all Region 1, though I’ll note if they’re available in Region 2, too. (And as an aside to all those British DVD publicists out there, I’m totally open to checking out your DVDs, too. Send ’em on.)
It’s also a potentially interesting illustration of the kind of bombardment film critics get from publicists and filmmakers looking to get coverage of their work.
I won’t offer any commentary on possible worthiness. This is information only.
So, this is what piled up in the mail while I was away in London.
