The first DVD column of 2013 includes a number of releases by major directors who are easy to take for granted. But it's never easy to make a movie, much less one not geared toward the masses. Here's a rundown of new movies, documentaries, TV shows and classics getting a reissue, including one of my all-time favorite romantic dramas on BluRay. (Yes, John Wayne can act.) END OF WATCH ($34.98 BluRay combo; Universal) RED HOOK SUMMER ($29.97 BluRay; Image) TO ROME WITH LOVE ($35.99 BluRay; Sony) HANNAH AND HER SISTERS ($24.99 BluRay; MGM) SLEEPER ($24.99 BluRay; MGM) HARA-KIRI ($29.95 BluRay; NewVideo) 17 GIRLS ($27.99 DVD; Strand) BREATHING ($29.95 DVD; Kino Lorber) -- Jake Gyllenhaal has his best role in years in this violent cop drama that came and went without leaving much of an impression on anyone. It might just as easily have scored the Oscar glory of writer-director David Ayer's script for Training Day, but you're going to have to discover this ...

'Tron: Uprising' trailer looks pretty good, but will anyone watch the show?
Tampa Bay - almost 5 years
Tron: Uprising's new trailer looks pretty good. And it kept my attention for about, oh, 45 seconds. Is it just me or does the appeal of the story get lost without human actors? Anybody can animate a digital world; it takes a real artist to act in a digital world. In any case, Tron: Uprising is actually an animated show that is set between the original 1982 Tron movie and the 2010 sequel Tron: Legacy. It will kick off on the Disney Channel on May 18 with a half-hour "prelude" called Tron: Uprising, Beck’s Beginning, that will set up the storyline for the series. Among the celebrity voices on tap: Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reubens and Bruce Boxleitner. The show will officially debut June 7 on Disney XD. Here's the show's official description, according to Entertainment Weekly: "TRON: Uprising, Beck's Beginning," introduces a Beck, a young mechanic living in Argon City, a growing metropolis in a far off corner of the grid that has just bee ...
