New on DVD
The African Queen; The T.A.M.I. Show: Collector’s Edition; The Blind Side
The African Queen(Paramount, $20)More than 50 years after arriving in theaters, The African Queen has finally made it to DVD, said The Washington Post. Magnetic leads Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn would pop against any backdrop, but the “lush” vividness of the African jungle here proves the wait was worth it. Extras include a making-of featurette.
The T.A.M.I. Show: Collector’s Edition(Shout! Factory, $20)Essential for any music lover, The T.A.M.I. Show is “riveting from start to finish,” said the Detroit Free Press. “The holy grail of rock movies” captures a legendary 1964 concert, held in Santa Monica, Calif., and features “stunning live performances” from James Brown, Marvin Gaye, the Beach Boys, and many more.
The Blind Side(Warner, $29)Sandra Bullock is the “best part” of this sentimental sports film, said the Los Angeles Times. The actress just earned an Oscar as the tough-talking Southern matriarch whose well-to-do family adopts future NFL star Michael Oher. Blu-ray extras include interviews with Oher himself; the DVD offers only deleted scenes.
