THE SCREENING ROOM

ON DVD: John Carter, Private Romeo, Bear Nation And More!

Space operas and military cadets and bears, oh my! New to DVD and Bluray this week are a slew of vastly different yet highly entertaining films and TV shows: A musclebound warrior in the form of Friday Night Lights‘ Taylor Kitsch wrestles with giant space monsters in John Carter, French film Tomboy features a switch of sexes for a 10-year old girl; homoeroticism lights up at an all-male military school in the Shakespearean Private Romeo (above); and producer Kevin Smith brings the bear community together in documentary Bear Nation.
