The "Need For Speed" is something I get. There's nothing quite like long straightaways on a highway where you can push the pedal down just a bit and feel the pavement fly underneath the tires. For filmmakers--and here I'm especially talking about producers and a few directors--I wish some times they would think a bit more about the "Need For A Good Script" first though, even before they think about the speed, special effects, and everything else.
Whether you like it or whether you aren’t so taken with it, The Wizard of Oz is one of the most enduring classics in cinema history, and that fact is not really up for dispute. This 1939 musical film was hailed in its day as a technological marvel because of its use of colour and make-up effects and those very elements of the film are just as evident today, in watching the new Warner Bros. Blu-ray 3D remastered version, as they were 75 years ago.
Catching up with the latest new releases this month, Oscar-nominated and Oscar-winning titles are the biggest arrivals for new release Tuesdays on both January 14 and 21.

Happy New Year, and welcome to the first new Blu-ray column of 2014. This year's first edition is essentially dominated by the latest from television--most notably, two Canadian-made series that are well worth mentioning.
