THIS WEEK’S HOME VIDEO RELEASES

In this week's new home video releases on 03/05/2012 at 8:00 am

Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season (HBO)

How excellent is the debut season of Game of Thrones? Let’s see: There’s lots of blood, big-ass broadswords, dragon eggs, and characters with names like Daenerys Targaryen. Plus, a main character is killed off midway through the 10-episode arc. The best fantasy show on TV looks even better on the five-disc Blu-ray set, which includes so much bonus info about the program – backstories, character profiles, in-episode guides, commentary by everyone who worked on the show except for the kid who went on the morning coffee runs – that it makes The Lord of the Rings look like a mid-afternoon hash dream.

The Deer Hunter (Universal)

Michael Cimino’s 1978 epic is one of the most intense movies ever made (we still get uneasy during the Russian roulette scenes). It’s also one of the best. This new Blu-ray includes some deleted and extended scenes.

Immortals (Universal)

Zeus chooses a mere mortal to lead his fight against a ruthless enemy bent on world domination. But, as any gay man can tell you, the plot is secondary to all those sweaty, half-naked buff guys beating each other senseless.

Like Crazy (Paramount)

Sweet but soggy love story about two college students – one’s British, the other is American – whose happily-ever-after is put on hold after her visa runs out and she can’t leave England. And you thought your long-distance relationship sucked.
