It’s pretty much impossible to avoid the end of the world this summer, and with the trend of blockbuster apocalypse movies showing no signs of abating any time soon, it’s good to have something a little more offbeat to throw into the mix. “It’s a Disaster,” the sophomore effort from up and coming director Todd Berger is exactly that, and to celebrate the DVD release we’ve got three copies on DVD and three copies on Blu-ray to give away to some lucky readers.

Before Midnight
It's June, the long hazy days of summer are here and it's the perfect time to catch up with Celine and Jesse. The continental romance that started in "Before Sunrise," and grew in "Before Sunset" continues in "Before Midnight," the latest collaboration between stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, and director Richard Linklater. Its another winning entry in the series, a movie that we called a "challenging, funny, painful, very present and alive depiction of relationships at 40," "so honest and real that we wouldn't have it any other way." Now with the movie set expand to even more theaters, we have a prize to give away for some lucky readers.

After garnering considerable critical acclaim on its full release last year, Andrea Arnold's bruisingly beautiful adaptation of the Emily Brontë classic "Wuthering Heights" will be coming to DVD and Blu-ray this week. Following her unsettling but highly praised Cannes Jury Prize-winner "Fish Tank" -- a fairly grimy slice of British social realism -- with a romance classic, one already well-served by high-class adaptations, the film was seen in many quarters as something of an odd choice. The result though, to quote our grade A review out of Venice, was "superb," "groundbreaking" and "Terrence Malick-like," confirmation of a serious and formidable talent in British cinema.

Maybe it's because the weather is getting warmer or perhaps it seems like summer is just around the corner, but next week's "Oblivion" seems to be either a kickstart to the summer movie season or a big finale to the spring slate. Either way, it's bringing the business with Tom Cruise as the last man on Earth, in a film by "Tron: Legacy" director Joseph Kosinski all powered by a score from M83. And today, we have a helluva prize pack that any fan of the musician is really going to want to get their hands on.

You might be in the midst of full blown "Arrested Development" fever, but some temporary relief might be right in front of you with "It's A Disaster." The indie comedy has been available on VOD since March, but it's now headed to theaters and it might be worth a visit down to your local art-house. The concept is simple: four couples meet for Sunday brunch, but are soon left dealing with the fact that outside, the world is coming to an end. Yes, it's an apocalypse comedy, but one less focused on explosions and more on biting laughs.

At 76 years old, Sundance founder, legendary actor and filmmaker and cinematic icon Robert Redford doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Not only has he booked a role in the blockbuster "Captain America: Winter Soldier," he's got "A Walk In The Woods" gearing up to shoot this fall with Richard Linklater, but coming first is "The Company You Keep." And featuring an unbelievable ensemble and some politically charged material, this could be a nice intelligent diversion this spring movie season.
