DVD: “Oldboy,” “12 Years A Slave,” “Free Fall,” & More!



This year’s Best Picture Oscar winner, 12 Years A Slave, kicks off the week’s home entertainment round-up.

Spike Lee’s remake of a Korean cult hit, Oldboy, follows it up, and we also have a German queer title, Free Fall (above) to round things out!



($35.99 Blu-ray, $30.99 DVD; Sony)

Director Park Chan-wook’s gonzo Korean cult hit – based on a manga — about a messy revenge plot gets a remake from director Spike Lee. Josh Brolin stars as Joe, an alcoholic who finds himself locked up in a private cell by an unknown captor. Released twenty years later, he seeks to unleash a can of whoop-ass on the responsible party. Underrated, sometimes gruesome, and more accessible than its Korean counterpart. Extras include extended/alternate scenes, several behind the scenes featurettes, and more.


12 Years A Slave

($39.99 Blu-ray, $29.98 DVD; 20th Century Fox)

Hot on the heels of cleaning up at the Oscars — Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay — director Steve McQueen’s film about a free black man kidnapped and forced into slavery is as grueling and painful to endure as it is compelling and expertly crafted. An important, essential work. Extras include several making-of featurettes.


Free Fall

($24.99 DVD; Wolfe)

Marc is a young policeman with a pregnant wife, but finds his plans and situation disrupted when a frisky academy trainee, Kay, puts the moves on him. Does he scrap the girlfriend and baby for life with a smokin’ hot — and edgy — guy? We know which way we’re swinging. Hot stuff!
