The Wolf of Wall Street - Paramount - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD
Director: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprioJonah HillMatthew McConaugheyKyle ChandlerRob ReinerFull cast + crew

The Wolf of Wall Street is a staggering film. It's like a real-life magic trick. Even when you know all of the components behind it, you wonder how it actually exists. To that effect, it mirrors the real story that inspired it all: how one man saw a gap in the system and figured out how to leverage it every which way he could until he'd artificially inflated not only his own wealth, but the wealth of all his friends and family. For as funny, sexy and just plain wild as The Wolf of Wall Street is, it's also a terrifying look at how an ordinary person can put themselves into such a powerful position of influence as long as they want it bad enough.

Special Features: Only one: a 17-minute look at the real people behind the film and what drew the cast/crew to them.

Walking with Dinosaurs is a meticulously animated romp through the ages about a young dino going on an adventure. If you have young kids (or happen to be one yourself) who are obsessed with dinosaurs, they'll probably love it (it's educational and entertaining). It's got an interesting, live-action hook to it and a setup that almost feels like a movie from 20 years ago. However, there's not much about this story or style of movie that will attract adults all on their own. But, then again, this movie isn't exactly made for them.

The exact opposite can be said of Beneath, a new horror movie from director Larry Fessenden that's certainly not for kids. We'll have some more on this movie once we share our chat with Fessenden, so until then I'll just say that fans of movies about coeds getting chomped on by something in a lake should check it out.

Continuing the something-for-everyone grab bag of new releases this week, we've got Chinese Zodiac, which is finally hitting U.S. shelves. That cover art may make it look like one of Chan's sillier movies, but this is actually a bit more straightforward than that. And for something that's dead serious, check out Drafthouse Films' rerelease of the dark 1981 thriller Ms. 45, about a woman who goes insane after being raped twice in the same day and starts killing men out of blind revenge.

And lastly we have Welcome to the Jungle, an action comedy about a group of coworkers who go away to an island as a team-building exercise only to find themselves in an unexpected survival scenario. The cover makes it look like the Jean-Claude Van Damme show, though this is really more of an ensemble comedy with machetes and tribal painting. Check out this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray, featuring the great Rob Huebel making fun of the production:
