Neil Patrick Harris, we salute you. Both the real you, and the filthy, seemingly immortal version of yourself you portray in the "Harold and Kumar" movies. Few other humans can take a shotgun blast to the back and live to tell the tale. I know of no other to get kicked out of Heaven for making the son of God look like a game-less nobody. Plain and simple, straight up: you are awesome, NPH.
So today, we're proud to be a part of Neil Patrick Harris Appreciation Day, celebrating the Blu-ray and DVD release of "A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas." We even have an exclusive clip from the home video release for your viewing pleasure, but a warning: this is not safe for work by any means. Of course, the alternate universe NPH would have it no other way.
Spread your Neil-worship on Twitter using the hash-tag #ILOVENPH today!
"A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas" is available on Blu-ray and DVD today (February 7).

This past October, "Real Steel" proved that if you're going to make a movie about robots fighting each other, you have to care about the robots. More importantly, you have to care about the young boy and the washed-up boxer behind the robot.

This writer's love for "Warrior" knows no bounds. (See exhibits A and B.) I firmly believe that if more people see it, they will jump on the bandwagon and agree that Nick Nolte deserves a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination.

To celebrate the excellent release we bring you this exclusive commentary clip from the Blu-Ray featuring Maxmiliano Hernandez, who played trainer Colt Boyd in the film, and director/co-writer/producer Gavin O'Connor.

It's hard to hear the voice of the Muscles from Brussels himself, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and not imagine the action super star uppercutting the air. As it turns out, that's probably what he's actually doing.
In this exclusive behind the scenes featurette from the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of "Kung Fu Panda 2," you get a peak at what it was like for Van Damme while he recorded his voice track for the film.
Anyone who saw "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" this summer knows that one of the best parts of the film was Andy Serkis' incredible performance as sentient and revolutionary chimpanzee, Caesar. There has even been early talk of Serkis deserving Academy recognition for his work. Heck, even the stars of the film said the reason to see the film is Serkis and the rest of the apes.
The DVD and Blu-ray powers that be must have been paying attention to all the Serkis buzz because they've created an all-Serkis featurette for the "Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" DVD and Blu-ray, out Dec. 13, and we've got your exclusive first look right here. Check out the video below to see "The Genius Of Andy Serkis."
"He really brought a lot of depth to the character," says writer/producer Richard Jaffa, over awesome footage of Serkis' acting in a side-by-side comparison of his raw performance and the finished film. "Once he's in it, he's in it and goes through this incredible transformation."
"The Devil's Double" is an impressive feat on a lot of levels, but there's no doubt that it's the work of actor Dominic Cooper as two wildly different roles — the psychotic son of Saddam Hussein, Uday, and his reluctant body double, Latif Yahia — that absolutely sells the movie. Even though the acting effort was a fantastic success on Cooper's part, there were some initial doubts about how the "Devil's Double" production team would be able to pull it off.
"Even as I was writing this, I was thinking, 'I don't know how the f--- we're going to do this,'" confesses writer Michael Thomas in this exclusive clip from the "Devil's Double" DVD, in stores on Tuesday (November 22). "How are you going to get a performance out of one guy, then another performance out of the same guy at the same time, when they're in practically every single scene?"
Who can forget the classic chuckle-fest that was David Lynch's hallucinogenic portrait of the American small town, "Blue Velvet"? Turn out, it was a blast to make.

Working on a J.J. Abrams production isn't all secrets and mystery; there's also a lot of joking going on too. "Super 8" cast members Joel Courtney, Ryan Lee and Riley Griffiths shared their memories from working with the notoriously secretive director in this exclusive behind the scenes clip from the upcoming Blu-ray, hitting stores on November 22.
The clip also shares with us a peek of Abrams giving his young stars Courtney and Elle Fanning direction during a scene from this past summer's homage to the early films of producer Steven Spielberg.
