New on DVD and Blu-Ray

For the love of god, someone get Sam Mendes away from Roger Deakins, I’d really like him to shoot anything at all besides British prestige dross I have no interest in and it sounds like Empire of Light is dire even by the dross standards. That’s among the big titles this week, plus 4Ks of probably the first, second, and third-best movies about teens, Dazed and Confused and The Slumber Party Massacre I and II, the Luca Guadagnino documentary Salvatore: Shoemaker of Dreams, and Richard Lester’s debut Ring-a-Ding Rhythm, though I reject that title in favor of its original title It’s Trad, Dad!. It’s Trad, Dad! has a shoestring plot but it’s mostly just gags and immaculately-filmed performances from teenybopper jazz and rock acts, and Lester makes even the cheesiest acts look as good as The Beatles for a little bit.
