Two high-profile but little-seen movies come to home video

Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña star in "End of Watch"

New and classic movies on DVD and Blu-ray January 22 include ‘End of Watch,’ ‘Searching for Sugar Man,’ ‘The Paperboy,’ ‘Pina,’ ‘Death Race 3: Inferno,’ ‘The Quiet Man,’ ‘Deadly Blessing,’ ‘The Seven-Per-Cent Solution,’ ‘Cujo,’ ‘Trancers,’ and more!

 

This week, one of the best reviewed but little-seen movies of 2012 comes to DVD and Blu-ray, End of Watch starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña, along with The Paperboy, starring Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron (that’s the one with the infamous jellyfish sting remedy scene). Both films have big names but for some reason did not play well to general audiences. Maybe home video will give them both a chance to find an audience. Also this week, the Criterion Collection releases its very first 3D Blu-ray film, the documentary Pina, which should look spectacular. There is quite a collection of classic films hitting DVD and Blu-ray on January 22, including John Wayne’s The Quiet Man, and for anyone who remembers the home video boom of the late 80s/early 90s, some of those direct-to-video “gems” — including the cult classic Trancers — are getting a new lease on life on DVD.
