New DVD and Blu-ray releases this week

This week’s new DVD and Blu-ray releases, the first for 2015, include a third chapter of the Atlas Shrugged franchise (there was a second?), while also distributing a title called Boyhood, Left Behind, and the coveted fifth season of Archer! Other titles that seemed favorably received on IMDb include Black Sails and Get On Up.

For some reason there’s also a slew of Jane Fonda workout tapes. What? Are we targeting the resolutionist out here?

The only title I can really speak to is the hilarious animated series, FX’s Archer (which premieres its sixth season this week). The series is about a spy agency that has some serious emotional issues, but does so in such a way that is hilarious to watch. Archer loves boozing it up and is quite full of himself and he’s surrounded by characters not much different and yet, more sane? Oh, and his mother runs the spy agency. It is definitely not something you want to watch around civil family members or children but heck, I love the show as it makes me think of Southpark meets the CIA.
