DVD & Blu-ray Releases For Week Commencing 1st May 2017
A quieter week, with no big new releases hitting the shelves. Mark Duplass' Creep comes to DVD a couple of years after its cinema run and Why This? I mean, Why Me? gets a much, erm, anticipated release. One film that should definitely be added to your list is the often overlooked Tampopo which gets a UK Blu release through Criterion. In a similar vein, My Life as a Dog also arrives on Blu-ray. The last one worth noting is Franco Nero's The Mercenary, scored by the legendary Ennio Morricone.
