New on DVD and Blu-Ray

This week, the 4K microscope is applied to modern classics, cult horror (including readymade cult favorite Mad Dog), and forgotten action bombs alike (why is Universal, at this moment in time, putting so many chips on R.I.P.D.?), as well as the filmmaking bravura of late-style Kevin Smith. And then there’s Amsterdam, whose costly failure, god willing, may finally put an end to the David O. Russell “bunch of stars, bunch of silly bullshit” model. Even if Russell was still working in I Heart Huckabees form, he’d need to be exiled far away from where he could be in a position of power over anybody, but him doubling on shapeless movies about mugging celebrities (and Christian Bale with “funny” hair) just makes it all the easier to kick his ass to the curb.
