This week on home video, we’ve got Seth Rogen and Zac Efron facing off in a comedy, Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson facing off in a post-apocalyptic road film, and Brenton Thwaites and Laurence Fishburne facing off in a sci-fi thriller. Then we’ve got the requisite smaller releases, a ton of recent TV seasons (and one complete collection of a popular sitcom), and three big horror franchise sets. Read on for details:



Neighbors

73%

With hit projects both as director (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) and writer (the two recent Muppets movies) under his belt, it might be surprising to learn that Nicholas Stoller’s most successful film to date was Neighbors, a raunchy comedy that opened one week after The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and one week before Godzilla. Pitting Seth Rogen against Zac Efron, Neighbors follows a young couple with a newborn baby who find themselves at odds with their new neighbors when a fraternity moves in next door. Most critics found the comedy surprisingly sturdy, if a bit vulgar, and praised its game cast, which included supporting turns from Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Special features on the disc include the requisite gag reel and deleted scenes, alongside a handful of making-of featurettes.



The Rover

66%

Australian director David Michod’s 2010 film Animal Kingdom was a powerhouse debut, so it wasn’t unreasonable to set expectations high for his follow-up, The Rover, which opened in limited release back in June. While the latter wasn’t quite the critical darling its predecessor was, it still managed to impress critics to the tune of 66 percent on the Tomatometer. Utilizing the Australian landscape as a post-apocalyptic backdrop, The Rover stars Guy Pearce as Eric, a lone drifter who gets carjacked by a gang of combative thieves. In search of leads, Eric runs into Rey (Robert Pattinson), the brother of one of the thieves, and the pair set out across the desolate landscape to locate Eric’s car, encountering trouble along the way. Moody and violent, The Rover struck most critics as a stylish exercise in ambiguity, with a relatively thin story held aloft almost entirely by its stars’ compelling performances. Only one bonus feature comes with the disc, and it’s a 45-minute making-of doc.



The Signal

61%

Films that rely on sustained tension in service of a big final payoff are difficult to craft; sometimes, they’re more confusing than they need to be, and sometimes the anticipated twist is underwhelming. Unfortunately, there were enough critics who found both to be true for The Signal that the film mustered only a mediocre 55 percent on the Tomatometer. The story revolves around a trio of MIT students (Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp) driving across the Southwest whose road trip takes a detour when they begin to receive taunting messages from an MIT hacker. Before they are able to confront their nemesis, however, they black out and find themselves trapped in a mysterious research facility, unable to explain what happened. Critics found The Signal ambitious and initially intriguing, but felt it could have used a lot more narrative finesse to deliver its climactic reveals. The film comes with a feature commentary with the director and writers, some deleted, extended, and alternate scenes, and a behind-the-scenes doc.

Also available this week:

  • Lukas Moodysson’s Certified Fresh Swedish import We Are the Best! (97 percent), about a trio of punk-rockin’ teenage girls growing up in 1980s Stockholm.
  • Claude Lanzmann’s documentary The Last of the Unjust (97 percent), which utilizes archived interviews from 1975 to tell the story of Benjamin Murmelstein, who helped thousands of Jews escape capture by the Nazis.

  • The Calling (50 percent), starring Susan Sarandon and Topher Grace in a thriller about a detective in a small Canadian town tracking down a serial killer with a bizarre trademark.
  • Very Good Girls (17 percent), starring Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen in a coming-of-age film about a pair of graduating high schoolers who fall for the same boy.
  • Season three of the Emmy-winning drama Scandal (100 percent), starring Kerry Washington as a high-powered fixer.
  • Season two of Nashville (100 percent), starring Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton as dueling Country music divas.
  • Season two of Defiance (100 percent), SyFy’s action-drama set on Earth in the distant future.
  • The Certified Fresh first season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine (83 percent), starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher in a “workplace” comedy set in a police station.
  • The fifth season of Emmy darling Modern Family (83 percent) is out on DVD.
  • Season one of sci-fi series The 100 (72 percent) is available on DVD and Blu-ray.
  • The third season of Comedy Central’s sketch comedy show Key & Peele is available on DVD.

  • And lastly on this week’s list, we’ve got three horror franchise sets on Blu-ray going on sale. First up is Halloween: The Complete Collection on Blu-ray, which includes all ten films in the series, a collectible booklet, and tons of special features.
  • Next, there’s Saw: The Complete Collection. There isn’t a whole lot of information available on the special features, but the set is only three discs, so there may not be any. That said, it’s selling for $25, which is a great price for seven movies.
  • And last but not least, we have The Exorcist: Complete Anthology. Again, not much info on the bonus features, and sure, the sequels weren’t all that great, but if you’re a collector, this is another good deal at just under $30.

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele of Comedy Central’s sketch comedy series Key & Peele joined Patton Oswalt in conversation at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills Monday night. Prior to taking the stage for a panel which live-streamed to thousands of internet viewers, Key and Peele shared with Rotten Tomatoes what shows they’re currently watching. Turns out Key is obsessed with Orphan Black. [Watch out for spoilers below.]

Keegan-Michael Key: Right now I’m way crazy into Orphan Black. I’m up to date. I watch it about two hours after it comes on the air — that’s as close as anyone gets to appointment-watching television these days is like two hours after it comes on air. Big Orphan Black fan. Also, my wife and I are huge Hannibal fans. We love Hannibal, Orphan Black, and I was blown away by this last episode of Orphan Black [Season 2, Episode 8, “Variable And Full Of Perturbation”]. It was craaaazyyyy with Tony. That was amazing.

RT: And isn’t she amazing? Tatiana Maslany?

Key: I can’t get over Tatiana Maslany. And I just met Jordan Gavaris.

RT: And is he as cool in real life as you might think?

Key: He’s lovely. And the thing is, my wife’s a dialect coach and we didn’t know he’s not English.

RT: He’s not English?

Key: No! He’s Canadian! And so I’m in New York City at the Peabody Awards and [Orphan Black] won a Peabody Award, so I walk in to this little coffeehouse and I’m looking at this guy, and he’s looking at me, and he goes, “Oh! Oh! You’re –” and then I went, “Ugh! Ugh! You –” and we’re both freaking out, and I ran across the coffeehouse and I grabbed him and hugged him (’cause I got a problem — I’m a little too tactile) and I grabbed his face and I turned it to my wife and said, “Look! It’s…it’s…FEE!”

So that’s really what we’re watching right now, and I’m a huge fan of So You Think You Can Dance. I’m on this television show right now on USA called Playing House.

RT: Which also is a critically acclaimed show and I think people should check it out.

Key: Yes, they should… So I got to dance last week, and Mandy Moore from So You Can Think Dance choreographed that number and it was just awesome.

In conversation with Jordan Peele, Peele revealed that he’s as hooked on Game of Thrones as everyone else, and shared a few predictions for Sunday night’s season four finale. [Again, spoilers.]

Jordan Peele: I’m watching Game of Thrones.

RT: Did you read the books?

Peele: Didn’t read the books.

RT: Good. Me neither. So neither of us know what’s going to happen.

Peele: Good. Screw those guys. Those book people are screwing s— up.

RT: What do you think is going to happen on the season finale?

Peele: The finale episode is usually a little bit of a letdown compared to the penultimate in this show, isn’t it?

RT: Yes, but I didn’t think this week’s [Episode 9] was all that.

Peele: Alright. Interview’s over. What do you mean? That was, like, the coolest thing —

RT: I just wanted to check in with the other characters more.

Peele: See, I was just saying that this was the first time we got to sit down and experience a whole [interrupts himself] — that giant! Shot an arrow! Through the dude! And then they had the wolf!

RT: Yeah, but what about last week? The guy had his head popped off!

Peele: That was cool. That was cool. OK, difference of opinion.

RT: Do you have any predictions for the finale?

Peele: Alright, I’m just going to say it. Grey Worm and that girl are going to do it. Mother Dragon is going to kill her right-hand man. I’m just throwing them out here. I think Tyrion is going to escape the city.

RT: Do you think Jamie is going to help him?

Peele: That’s really all it could be, right? What if Jamie and Tyrion take off together? Right now the people who have read the books are cringing at this interview.

RT: Let them cringe. It’s fun to guess.

Key & Peele returns to Comedy Central this fall with season four.
