Dope (2015) 89%

Relative newcomer Shameik Moore impressed a lot of folks with his star turn in this Certified Fresh indie comedy about a smart, 1990s hip-hop-obsessed inner-city high schooler who winds up in possession of  a bag full of drugs and hatches a scheme with his two best friends to get rid of it. Just two extras to be found here: a profile of the film’s themes and characters, and a look at the iconic music that makes up much of the soundtrack.

Mad Men: Season 7 (2014) 89%

The final chapter in the story of “Don Draper” and his exciting life has finally aired, and those of you looking to own the whole shebang are now free to buy it in one large package (which comes with a pair of tumblers and a ton of special features). The rest of you who have been collecting individual seasons over the years can still pick up part 2 of the final season, which is being sold separately.

Justified: Season 6 (2015) 100%

If Mad Men wasn’t your thing, and you’d prefer to have a commemorative flask instead of a couple of tumblers, then you can always pick up the complete set of this Certified Fresh FX drama about a maverick lawman (Timothy Olyphant) serving up justice in Kentucky. In addition to the flask, you’ll get all six seasons of the show, all the previous bonuses, an extra disc full of brand new special features, and a book.

The third season of A&E’s dramatic prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho catches up with Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) as he enters high school.

The Following: Season 3 (2015) 63%

The Following was unfortunately cancelled this year, but if you want to own all three seasons of the serial killer/detective show starring Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy, it’s available in a box set. The third season is also available individually.

The Gallows (2015) 15%

In this found-footage thriller, a group of high school students decide to revive a play that killed its lead actor onstage twenty years earlier, and spookiness ensues. The film wasn’t received well, but if you’d like to own it, special features include a full, feature-lengh “original version,” behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and more.

The Brood (1979) 82%

The first of two Criterion Collection releases this week, this supernatural thriller from David Cronenberg tells the parallel stories of a disturbed woman undergoing radical psychotherapy and her daughter, who is tormented by childlike demons. The new package includes a doc on the making of the film, cast interviews, and more.

Una Giornata Particolare (A Special Day) (1977) 100%

The second offering from Criterion stars Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni in a drama about a housewife and a radio journalist who bond with each other on the day that Italy welcomed Adolf Hitler to Rome in 1938. Bonuses include a short film from 2014 starring Loren, an interview with Loren and director Ettore Scola, and more.

  • Vits/Vicente Torres

    BATES MOTEL’s 3rd season wasn’t as good as the previous ones because NORMA got a story arc unrelated to NORMAN (the flashdrive). Their sick relationship is the core of the show. Also, I still don’t see the point of having DYLAN on the show. Luckily, the ending of the season was both shocking and sad.
    I’ll watch DOPE.
