Moviefone’s Blu-ray Pick of the Week
“Tarantino XX: 8-Film Collection”
What’s It About? This Blu-ray box set gathers all of QT’s movies — even “True Romance”(!) — in one cool collection, and is stuffed with more special goodies than a double order from Big Kahuna Burger. (The collection even comes with a massive mural, depicting all of his iconic characters in one colorful splash.)
See It Because: Besides owning everything he’s done in the first twenty years of his career, “Django Unchained” notwithstanding, the box set’s special features include exhaustive insight into his work from friends, actors and critics, and offers a comprehensive biography of the unique filmmaker, his influences and his attitude.

What’s It About? The dense and epic mythology of the “Air Bud” universe continues with a new installment featuring a litter of magical North Pole pups that must team up with Mrs. Claus (played by “Charlie’s Angel” Cheryl Ladd, leaving us with all sorts of conflicting thoughts) to recover the quickly-vanishing Christmas spirit… before it disappears forever.
