If the recent "Cosmopolis" trailer showed us anything, it's that legendary director David Cronenberg is definitely not afraid to go there.

His latest movie, "A Dangerous Method," hits Blu-ray and DVD on March 27, and even though it's about the early days of psychoanalytics, it's still one of the kinkiest movies to come out in recent years.

We have an exclusive featurette from the upcoming release. In the clip, the cast members Keira Knightley, Michael Fassbender, Vincent Cassel and Viggo Mortensen share their stories and experiences of working with Cronenberg.

The Fuzzy Pack is backy-back once again with today's home video release of "The Muppets." If you still haven't seen Kermit the Frog and company's glorious return via Jason Segel… well, what's wrong with you? It was and remains my favorite movie of 2011, and I'm not just saying that because I got to talk with Kermit and new guy Walter about "The Avengers" last week. (Though that was pretty sweet.)

Even if you have seen "The Muppets," the newly released Blu-ray is a must-buy for any and all fans. Keep reading for five reasons to own "Muppets" on Blu-ray.

He might not be one of the titular legendary swordsmen, but d'Artagnan can certainly hold his own in this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray release of "The Three Musketeers."

The special edition disc hits stores on March 13th, but we have a clip from the film to get you in the mood for some swashbuckling.

In the clip, the young hero, Logan Lerman as d'Artagnan, fends off a host of bladed attackers as his companions, the Three Musketeers, look on and frankly, don't offer enough help. Not that he needs any. He kicks a great deal of ass all by himself.

Just as Harry Potter returned from the in-between at the end of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the "Harry Potter" DVDs and Blu-Rays that we just lost forever for a brief period of time will now be apparating back on to store shelves near you.

Okay, so that might have been a stretch for a metaphor, but the "Harry Potter" films are coming back to store shelves in a brand new collection. This bad boy is replete with the special features and memorabilia absent from last year's complete DVD/Blu-Ray collection, and comes tacked with a $500 price tag. Amazon posted the details about the "Harry Potter Wizards Collection" and even offered a $150 markdown, but didn't have any details about what the boxed set will officially include. Well, that's where I come in.

Since the collection still has a vague "2012" release date, it seems fair to take a crack at puzzling out what could possibly be included that makes the special edition home video release so expensive. Click on after the jump to see my memorabilia and featurette wish list.

Watching Michael Shannon play a potentially disturbed man in "Take Shelter" was one of the most harrowing movie-going experiences in 2011. In the film, he plays Curtis, a man who has apocalyptic visions and is unsure whether to take them seriously or not. Just to be safe, he begins to expand his family's tornado shelter, in order to protect his family.

The film's most frightening scene comes near the end of the film at a community fish fry, when a friend confronts Curtis about his strange behavior. Shannon erupts in fury in an unforgettable scene, made all the more real because the extras in the shot didn't know what was going to happen.
