This Week On DVD and Blu-ray: October 1, 2013

From Here to Eternity
From Here to Eternity on DVD Blu-ray today
I'm going to add this to my Amazon wishlist as I personally love this movie and would love to replace my DVD edition. I've always hated that cover art though.

Buy From Here to Eternity

The Little Mermaid (Two-Disc Diamond Edition)
I debated requesting a review copy of this one since I pretty much have every classic Disney film on Blu-ray, and The Little Mermaid is one of the better Disney films. To be honest, I'm not sure why I couldn't muster up enough interest, but I expect it's a fantastic new release.

The Croods
The Croods on DVD Blu-ray today
Here's a decent little family film and one of the better animated films of the year, but that's not really saying all that much when you consider the only films it's really competing against at this time are Turbo and Despicable Me 2, the latter of which is the only one I would probably watch again of the three.

Buy The Croods

This is the End
This is the End on DVD Blu-ray today
I really enjoyed This is the End and considered requesting a review copy just to watch the opening 15 minutes or so over again. I'm sure I'll add it to my rental list at some point.

Buy This is the End

    I've never seen From Here to Eternity but will be sure to check it out in the coming days.

    As for the others - This is the End is a sold rental and Little Mermaid I have not seen for 15 years.

  • andyluvsfilms

    This Is The End was much better than i thought, definitely worth a watch but not a buy.

  • Kessler

    Will definitely rent The Croods and This is the End. And I may have to shell out some extra bucks for The Little Mermaid as well.

  • Michael

    I'll buy This is the End, even though it wasn't that gut-busting, non-stop funny movie I was expecting, I still laughed and enjoyed myself with it.

  • Chris138

    I love From Here to Eternity so I'd like to get that. To be honest I forgot it was even being released today.

  • Winchester

    I've yet to get around to Eternity. Well, it's been around a few years and I'm sure it will be for years still to come.

    None of the rest are of any real interest but most will probably be rented at some point.

  • Adu

    This Is The End is a definite buy for me.

  • StephanieB

    I will definitely be picking up The Little Mermaid. I'm 10 movies into a 52 Disney movie marathon (trying to finish before Frozen is out), so I still have some time until I get to this one.

    I have From Here to Eternity on DVD and don't feel the need to upgrade at the moment. Not a huge fan of This is the End and I have The Croods on hold at the library.

    Criterion is having a flash sale of 50% off all in stock titles for the next 24 hours, in case anyone's interested.

    • lalecture

      Wow, thanks for the tip! Im heading over there now.

    • Tom

      Sweet, thanks for the heads up. Gonna pick up la Haine.

  • G-Man

    I may buy This Is The End once it drops a little in price. Maybe ask for X-Mas.

    Love The Little Mermaid, but own it on DVD. Not sure I want to muster up the $ to pick up the blu-ray.

  • Ryguy815

    I'm renting This Is The End off of ITunes right now but it's saying can't load the movie. Anyone know why that's happening?

  • Travis

    Probably going to buy This is The End...God I don't know why I love that film so much. Little Mermaid will come in handy when my brother and I get there during our Disney Review Project. And I'll check out From Here to Eternity at one point

      I know, I loved This is the End. Laughed my ass off!!
