Reviews of new DVD releases
"Stones in Exile"
Perhaps the worst recording conditions gave way to classic rock's finest album when The Rolling Stones traveled to a shoddy French villa in 1971 to record "Exile on Main St." They were broke. They were evading taxes. The confines were so damp that the instruments wouldn't stay in tune. All the misery - and the magic that resulted - is recorded on this doc featuring great tunes and tons of rare footage.
"The Book of Eli"
$24 (DVD), $30 (Blu-ray)
Explosions ensue when a lone wolf (Denzel Washington) tries to protect a sacred book from a post-apocalyptic wasteland. This is why you shelled out for a Blu-ray player.
$30 (DVD), $40 (Blu-ray)
Matt Damon stars as a badass soldier in search of answers. Sound familiar? At least he's good at it by now. Both digital versions are packed with special features.
"Family Guy: Volume 8"
This three-disc set includes 15 episodes and tons of bonus stuff, including karaoke versions of "Road to Rhode Island" and other show classics.
"MacGyver: The TV Movies"
Richard Dean Anderson rocked business in the front, party in the back, and no-frills action all around. Here he stars in "Lost Treasure of Atlantis" and "Trail to Doomsday," two flicks released during the golden age of TV movies. (Wait what?) If you love making bombs from paperclips, you can't go wrong with this value-priced digital treasure.
