* The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 3 (ClassicFlix)
$39.99 SRP Blu-ray

—–Remastered, uncut, and beautifully restored, now you can see The Little Rascals like never before! With restorations so glorious, it will be like watching these iconic shorts for the first time! From 1929 to 1931, Hal Roach’s “Our Gang” series showcasing scruffy but lovable kids was among the studio’s biggest successes in the new era of sound. But in 1932, the franchise would introduce one of the most beloved and durable members of the gang in George “Spanky” McFarland – so named because of his mother’s constant admonitions of “Mustn’t touch! Spanky, spanky!” Director James Horne, having shot a reel’s worth of test footage of the youngster (later recycled in Spanky [1932]), showed it to anyone and everyone on the Roach lot, and shortly afterward, “Spanky” made his modest debut in Free Eats (1932). But Roach, recognizing the cuteness and natural talent of McFarland, immediately promoted the three-year-old to major player status by titling the next short after the tot and using his allure for maximum mirth in classic outings like The Pooch, Hook & Ladder, and Birthday Blues…all made in 1932, and all included in this set. The Little Rascals – The ClassicFlix Restorations, Volume 3 contains the next 11 Our Gang sound shorts produced by Roach at the dawn of the “talkie era”: Readin’ and Writin’ (1932) to Forgotten Babies (1933) – with each short newly scanned and restored from original Hal Roach 35mm film elements. A must-have for any true Our Gang fan, Volume 3 features the talents of Dickie Moore, Bobby “Wheezer” Hutchins, Dorothy DeBorba, Matthew “Stymie” Beard, Kendall “Breezy Brisbane” McComas, and of course, George “Spanky” McFarland. This volume also includes a special treat with Our Gang alums Mickey Daniels, Mary Kornman, Joe Cobb and Allen “Farina” Hoskins featured in Fish Hooky (1933)!

$69.99 SRP DVD; $79.99 SRP Blu-ray

—–Muhammad Ali brings to life one of the best-known and most indelible figures of the 20th century, a three-time heavyweight boxing champion who captivated millions of fans throughout the world with his mesmerizing combination of speed, grace, and power in the ring, and charm and playful boasting outside of it. Born Cassius Clay, Jr., Ali rose from boxing amateur to Olympic gold medalist and heavyweight champion, just as he had promised he would at the age of twelve. He wrote his own rules – in the ring and in his life – infuriating his critics, baffling his opponents, and riveting millions of fans. He spoke his mind and stood on principle, staying true to his Islamic faith and refusing induction into the U.S. Army…even when it cost him his livelihood. Banished for his beliefs, he returned to boxing an underdog, reclaimed his title twice, and became the most famous man on earth. An intimate portrait of a larger-than-life global icon, this four-part, eight-hour documentary tells the story of an exceptional athlete whose influence transcends boxing. “He was,” the novelist Norman Mailer wrote, “the very spirit of the 20th Century.” 4-disc set in either format.

Fighting against aliens in the timeline while also working to bring back their missing team mate, it will take more than the combined powers of a dark magician, John Constantine (Matt Ryan); a semi-reformed arsonist and Waverider O.G., Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell); a historian who transforms into steel, Nate Heywood (Nick Zano); a fresh out of Hell Astra Logue (Olivia Swann); and a brother-sister air-totem-wielding duo, Zara Tarazi (Tala Ashe) and Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian) to save the world (and beyond) for a sixth time. They must recruit a new Legend, a gun-totin’ Texan named Spooner (Lisseth Chavez) who was abducted by aliens when she was a child and imbued with powers that will help the team defeat their intergalactic foes. Either that or she’s just crazy.
