Obviously the most exciting release this week is the final season of BREAKING BAD. Could this be the end for Heisenberg? At last the finale of one of the greatest TV series in recent memory is out on video. Will Walter White finally get his just desserts or might he possibly be reunited with his family? What's Hank gonna do? Will Jesse make it out alive? The last 8 episodes are here on DVD and Blu-ray, packed with extras.



Directed by TAXI DRIVER screenwriter Paul Schrader, written by Bret Easton Ellis, the novelist behind "American Psycho", and starring Lindsay Lohan, eager for a comeback role, this movie got a lot of attention for casting both Lohan and adult-film star James Deen, as well as being mostly funded via Kickstarter. It's a cynical story about D-list actors sleepwalking their way through a haze of crummy movie sets, text messages, empty sex and plenty of drugs.



The heroes at The Criterion Collection have released an incredible box set of every single Zatoichi film. Shintaro Katsu stars as the titular wandering samurai, righting wrongs and occasionally meting out justice as he roams the countryside. All 25 titles are here in a dual-format set, so you get DVD and Blu-ray copies of each film. We've got it for sale for just $189.95 (10 bucks cheaper than Amazon!) and we've split a set open for rent so you can check out each and every one of these samurai classics.


As for the rest, make sure you catch the following: Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez in the car-chase movie GETAWAY (BLU), Ashton Kutcher in the Steve Jobs biopic JOBS (BLU). There's the awesome MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 25TH ANNIVERSARY set (@ SALE), which features the episodes GORGO, MITCHELL, THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE, LEECH WOMAN, MOON ZERO TWO and THE DAY THE EARTH FROZE. Cruise ship crisis VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED (@ BLU SALE). Bruce Willis and Helen Mirren are down for another all-star action movie with RED 2 (@ BLU SALE), and finally there's a new documentary about a cult 70's rock band, BIG STAR: NOTHING CAN HURT ME (@ BLU SALE).

We've also got another round of fantastic releases from Shout! Factory. This week there's Gregory Hines vs. an evil lady cyborg in EVE OF DESTRUCTION (@ BLU SALE). Also Lance Henriksen as a cop tracking down his nemesis who's come back from the electric chair for revenge in THE HORROR SHOW (@ BLU SALE), and most importantly George Romero's amazing Rennaisance Fair classic KNIGHTRIDERS (@ BLU SALE), starring Ed Harris and Tom Savini as motorcycle jousters!
