It’s a week of oddly complementary releases in DVD/BD-land. What better partner to the complete series set of the oh-so-‘90s hit Ally McBeal (starring the skeletal Calista Flockhart) than the first season set of the oh-so-‘00s basic-cable series Man V. Food (featuring the portly Adam Richman)? How better to follow the rock documentary Anvil: The Story Of Anvil (about a heavy metal band that keeps plugging away against all odds) than with the nature documentary The Besieged Fortress (about termites defending their home from the inevitable press of predators and weather). And with so few noteworthy horror films produced each year, why not pair Takashi Miike’s brain-scarring classic Audition (now on Blu-ray!) with the acclaimed new anthology film Trick ‘R Treat? It's double-feature week!
