    Doing It Right: Wreck-It Ralph Available for Download Before DVD and Blu-Ray

    Wreck-It Ralph was perhaps, without a doubt, one of the greatest odes to the modern video game industry as a whole and the golden age of video arcades during the early '80s. As such, if you're one of the unfortunate few that happened to miss it, well, it's a downright shame. Luckily, Disney won't have people waiting too long for a market release as the company has announced that Wreck-It Ralph will be available on February 12th... only as a digital download and via streaming services in both HD and 3D. That's right, those with mobile devices and computers will be kicking back and enjoying Wreck-It Ralph in a few weeks, while everyone else anticipating a DVD and Blu-Ray release is going to have to sit tight and ride it out until springtime.

    Look At This Ridiculous Straight-to-DVD Madagascar Ripoff

    You've been to the bargain DVD bin before, just admit it. Sometimes, you get some gems for five bucks, and other times, you buy the worst possible thing you can find because it's only five bucks and should provide a couple hours of awful fun. This pretty obvious Madagascar ripoff, Life's a Jungle: Africa's Most Wanted, seems like it would struggle to provide even said awful kind of fun. The story revolves around pampered pup Pip, who gets accidentally left in the jungle when what seems to be a rhinoceros smashes into his family's safari jeep and Pip is flung overboard, and forced to adapt to the harsh realities of the jungle. Seriously, watch the trailer, and check out the DVD box art below the break.

    Remember that old FBI warning before movies that you probably don't notice anymore because there's a decent chance you exclusively use streaming services to watch your movies and television shows now? Remember how it was always annoying that, whenever you popped in a DVD, you couldn't skip that warning, as your DVD player would inform you that the operation could not be completed? Well, it's about to get even more annoying for DVD and Blu-ray owners. That single, unskippable FBI warning is multiplying, and now DVDs and Blu-rays from six major studios will carry two unskippable, ten second warnings.

    Avatar Coming to DVD on Earth Day: No Special Features, No Ads, Just Movie

    Your first chance to grab Avatar on DVD will come next month on Earth Day, April 22nd. However, there is a twist. On the one hand, this release is the bare-bones one. No special features. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Times reports, "According to sources at Fox, "Avatar" will make history as the first Blu-ray new release from a major studio to hit stores without a single trailer or promotional content of any kind." That's right. Just a menu and the movie, so as to reserve the most disc space for all that less-compressed visual and audio data.
