Once you've spent Grandma's Christmas money and overdosed on holiday turkey, January might be a rough month in more ways than one. So Criterion is going a bit easier on you to kick off the New Year, though there are still enough titles that will prove to be enticing for any money left on gift cards you might have kicking around.

Once you've spent Grandma's Christmas money and overdosed on holiday turkey, January might be a rough month in more ways than one. So Criterion is going a bit easier on you to kick off the New Year, though there are still enough titles that will prove to be enticing for any money left on gift cards you might have kicking around.

The boutique label will be dropping Alfred Hitchcock's original 1934 "The Man Who Knew Too Much" (which he remade in 1956 with James Stewart) and as usual, extras abound. Geeks will be pleased to find an extra with none other than Guillermo del Toro talking about the film, along with the usual grab bag of stuff including a commentary, an excerpt of François Truffaut's famed interviews with Hitchock, another extensive interview with the filmmaker and more. Kidnapping and spies collide and also? Peter Lorre, who always rules.

Criterion will also start off the year with their first 3D release thanks to Wim Wenders' celebrated dance doc "Pina." It will arrive on DVD, but those of you wanting three dimensions, a Blu-ray combo pack will also be available. Deleted scenes, commentary, behind-the-scenes footage and more will be featured.

As for the rest of January? It's re-releases, mostly. Volker Schlondorff's "The Tin Drum" returns with a brand new restoration while Andrei Tarkovsky's "Ivan's Childhood" and Monte Hellman's "Two Lane Blacktop" get upgraded to Blu.
