Welcome to another look at highlights arriving on Blu-ray and DVD.There’s plenty to choose from this week in a wide variety of genres. So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week or need to stay indoors, be sure to give one of these titles a try!



DETECTIVE KNIGHT: REDEMPTION: While most low-budget direct-to-disc action pictures don’t warrant sequels, occasionally a few come to fruition. This is a follow-up to the 2022 film Detective Knight: Rogue,  which followed a cop seeking vengeance for the shooting of his partner.

After finding himself in police custody for his vigilantism, the lead accidentally ends up in the middle of a jailbreak led by a psychotic bomber (whose team members dress like Santa Claus). Our hero makes a deal with authorities to take down these baddies in exchange for his freedom and badge.

It features Bruce Willis, Lochlyn Munro, Corey Large and Miranda Edwards.

LOUDMOUTH: Reverend Al Sharpton is the subject of this documentary. The filmmakers tell the polarizing figure’s life story and detail his experiences as a pastoral prodigy, spokesperson for racial justice and media statesman. Along the way, viewers witness his brash and unusual tactics as the film attempts to determine whether or not he was an opportunist or a trailblazer.

It also contains interviews with President Barack Obama, James Brown, Reverend Jesse Jackson and more. This is a DVD-only release.

THE MENU: In this darkly comic thriller, a group of food enthusiasts (and one outsider invited at the last minute) gather for a very exclusive dining experience with a renowned chef. After being taken to a private island, the stuffy artisan serves them elaborate courses. Unfortunately, it isn’t long before the attendees discover that their host is not only serving some… unique dishes, but that he has extreme plans for them all.

The movie stars Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Hong Chau, Janey McTeer, Judith Light and John Leguizamo.

SPIN ME ROUND: An American chain restaurant manager is selected to attend a training program in Italy. She is initially thrilled by the prospect, imagining that she will soak in European glamor and maybe even meet a potential boyfriend in the process. The CEO and his sister take an interest in the protagonist and whisk her away on another trip. However, strange comments begin setting off alarm bells in the lead’s head and she begins to wonder if she may actually be in danger.

It features Alison Brie, Alessandro Nivola, Aubrey Plaza, Molly Shannon, Lil Rel Howery and Fred Armisen.

TILL: This biopic tells the story of Emmett Till and his mother, Mamie. In 1955, 14-year-old Emmett heads out to Mississippi to visit his cousins. After making an innocuous comment to a shopowner, he is lynched. Grief-stricken, his mother decides to do everything she can to see those responsible prosecuted. She takes unusual steps to do so, in the process garnering national attention.

It stars Danielle Deadwyler, Jayln Hall, Frankie Faison, Haley Bennett, Whoopi Goldberg, Layne Lawson and Kevin Carroll.
