"Inside Out"

No Fear, Anger, Disgust or Sadness required -- only Joy is needed for the arrival of Disney Pixar's blockbuster "Inside Out." Catch the Digital HD release on October 13; you'll have to wait until November 3 for the DVD and Blu-Ray. The list of "Inside Out" extras and special features is too long to post here -- it's as expansive as the credits of the movie! -- but here's the roundup for reference.


Jake Gyllenhaal is one of those actors who goes through extreme transformations for nearly every role and he does it again in this boxing movie that's about a lot more than boxing. "Southpaw," which also stars Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, Naomie Harris, and 50 Cent, has its digital release on October 16, before it drops on DVD/Blu-ray on October 27.


Ed Helms plays a grown up Rusty Griswold, who takes his family on a road trip to Walley World in this raunchy, star-studded return to the classic comedy franchise. Catch it on digital October 13, before it hits DVD/Blu-ray November 3.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"San Andreas"

It's the big one! When the San Andreas Fault rocks our world with a massive earthquake, a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne Johnson) and his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) make their way from L.A. to San Francisco to try and save their only daughter. Just suspend disbelief and go with it. Special features include audio commentary, a gag reel, a stunt reel, deleted scenes and the featurettes "San Andreas: The Real Fault Line," "Dwayne Johnson To The Rescue," and "Scoring The Quake."


This coming-of-age high school comedy, set in L.A., was a hit with critics and Sundance audiences. Watch Shameik Moore's breakout performance when "Dope" hits the streets October 13. Extras include "Dope Is Different," with the cast and crew discussing the film's central characters and themes of being unique and authentic; and "Dope Music," with Pharrell Williams, A$AP Rocky, Rick Fumuyiwa and others delving into the essential role old-school rap and punk rock tracks play in the film.


Brad Bird's sci-fi adventure, starring George Clooney, Britt Robertson and Hugh Laurie, has its Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital release on October 13. The Digital HD and Blu-ray combo back come with an insane number of special features, including eight deleted scenes, four Easter eggs, and about six featurettes.

New on Netflix

"Beasts of No Nation"

Netflix starts streaming its first original feature film on October 16, which is also the same day it hits theaters. The amazing Idris Elba leads a cast directed by "True Detective" Season 1's Cary Fukunaga. The story follows Agu (Abraham Attah), a young boy growing up in a West African country on the brink of civil war. When the fighting reaches Agu's village, his family is torn apart and he is forced to flee. He crosses paths with a group of guerilla soldiers led by a fierce commandant (Idris Elba). Agu is indoctrinated into their ranks as the commandant trains him to cope with his pain through violence.

"Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers"

Netflix is premiering two originals on October 16, and the second is this comedy special from Anthony Jeselnik. As Netflix noted (and the title suggests), "There's no subject too dark as the comedian skewers taboos and riffs on national tragedies before pulling back the curtain on his provocative style."

"Jane the Virgin"

On the same day that The CW is premiering "Jane the Virgin" Season 2, Netflix wants to help you catch up on Season 1. It's all going down on Monday, October 12, so why not make it a Virgin marathon day?

TV Worth Watching

"Fargo" (Monday on FX at 10 p.m.)

The second season of FX's breakout show is set in 1979, starring Patrick Wilson as State Trooper Lou Solverson, a recently returned Vietnam vet who investigates a crime involving a local gang and syndicate. His father-in-law, Sheriff Hank Larsson (Ted Danson), helps him put the puzzle pieces together. Jean Smart, Kirsten Dunst, and Jesse Plemons co-star, with Nick Offerman, Jeffrey Donovan, and Bruce Campbell (as Reagan!) in recurring roles.

"Saturday Night Live" (Saturday on NBC at 11:30 p.m.)

Tracy Morgan is the host on October 17, marking his big return not only to SNL and NBC, but comedy in general after his near-fatal car accident. Demi Lovato will back him up as the musical guest.

"The Great British Baking Show" (Sunday on PBS at 7 p.m.)

There are a lot of new and returning TV shows premiering this fall, but it's worth getting yourself addicted to PBS's baking competition show, brought to the U.S. from the U.K. Right now, PBS is airing Season 2, which is actually the fourth series of the U.K. show. Apparently we'll be getting these things in random order. No matter. Each episode is scrumptious to watch and the "drama" is never mean-spirited or over-bearing, it's just good clean delicious fun. The trick is finding when it airs in your area, since it's not one set time for everyone. Some of us get it Sunday nights at 7 p.m. but head to PBS's site and check your local listings to see when it's on for you.
