December New Releases BannerDecember is just about here, and without a doubt, it’s the biggest month of the year when it comes to exciting new releases! In fact, as much as we love our jobs, we’re kind of looking forward to taking a little bit of time off over the Christmas break to binge on as many of these films and television shows as we possibly can!

With soldiers, zombies, spies, queens, superheroes and emjois, December’s new release schedule has something for everyone. In no particular order, here are just ten titles that we’re eager to see on our screens this month…

Top Ten November New Releases

We know we say this every month, but choosing just ten DVDs to feature in this month’s New Releases post was next to impossible. Seriously. With so many brilliant new films out, we wanted to share everything…but sadly, we call our monthly new releases posts a “top ten”, so it kind of stands to reason that we’ll only feature ten titles every month. The rules are the rules. Sigh…

Wondering what’s hot this month? As always, we have the answers. Just remember, our Top Ten post isn’t in any particular order (after all, we had enough trouble just choosing ten titles. Having to rank them would likely cause a riot) and this is just the tip of the iceberg. We’ll namedrop a few titles we had to leave out at the end of this post.

Enjoy our DVD picks for November!

October’s already here (hello, warmer weather – we’ve missed you!) and we’re excited, because there’s a whole heap of amazing titles ready and raring to hit library shelves across Australia!

It’s a big, biiiig month for young adult titles, with the first season of Riverdale coming out in just a couple of days, as well as Descendants 2, and the latest season of Adventure Time – which is a hit with younger kids too…and even adults! Plus, there’s the new Spider-Man film, Homecoming, in which Peter Parker has to keep New York safe…while attending high school.

We’ve also got two hotly anticpated drama titles coming out really soon – My Cousin Rachel, based on the Daphne du Maurier novel, as well as The Beguiled, which stars Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and more. Plus, just in time for Halloween, there’s a new Chucky film to scare the absolute socks off a whole new generation of fans.

As always, choosing just ten titles to feature wasn’t the easiest of tasks – but nonetheless, here are our Top Ten for October, in no particular order… Continue reading
