Gary Thompson: 'Lord of the Rings,' 'Sucker Punch,' 'Season of the Witch' out on DVD

Posted: July 01, 2011

IF YOU'VE been waiting for yet another DVD configuration of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, this is your week.

"Rings" has a new "definitive" package comprising 15(!) discs with enough behind-the-scenes material to keep fans busy until Peter Jackson finishes "The Hobbit," prompting yet another DVD package.

Elsewhere, there is "Sucker Punch," Zack Snyder's superindulgent fantasy about female psych-ward inmates who imagine themselves to be Nazi-fighting strippers, or something. Only Snyder knows for sure.

Nicolas Cage fans may want to investigate "Season of the Witch," which opened several months ago without the benefit of critics screenings, and I wasn't about to pay for it.
