On DVD This Week: The Forest, Heroes Reborn, and More

by | April 11, 2016 | Comments

We’re just going to come right out and say it: it’s a pretty terrible week for DVD releases. That said, here are a handful of titles that may or may not interest you. Read on for details.

The Forest (2016) 10%

Natalie Dormer stars in this horror film about a woman who travels to Japan’s infamous Aokigahara Forest in search of her twin sister, only to encounter malevolent spirits who stand in her way. Extras include a commentary track, a making-of featurette, and a collection of photo galleries set to music.

Only Angels Have Wings (1939) 100%

And lastly, we have one release from the Criterion Colleciton: Howard Hawks’ drama about a daring freight pilot (Cary Grant) who must contend with unruly colleagues and a traveling entertainer (Jean Arthur) who takes a shine to him. Bonus features include excerpts from an interview between Hawks and Peter Bogdanovich, a profile of Hawks’ aviation films with two film scholars, a radio adaptation of the film from 1939 (hosted by Cecil B. DeMille and starring most of the cast), plus more.

    The whole point of reviving HEROES was to give the story a proper ending. HEROES: REBORN solved the cliffhanger of the world learing about the EVOs… but we still don’t know the fates of a lot of the original main characters (specially PETER, who was arguably the protagonist). I get that the actors were busy, but why not have a character talk about them? Also, the scheduling is no excuse for giving more importance to the new characters than the old characters who did return.

    I’ll watch ONLY ANGELS HAVE WINGS and maybe THE FOREST. I’ll skip STANDOFF.
