THE BIG CHILL: CRITERION COLLECTION (BLU-RAY + DVD)

This re-release of “The Big Chill,” just a year past its 30th anniversary, includes a remastered copy of the movie along with a 1998 documentary, deleted scenes (but no Costner; boo), a Q&A discussion from the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and a new introduction by co-writer/director Lawrence Kasdan. It’s a worthy acquisition for fans of the film.

THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU: CRITERION COLLECTION (BLU-RAY)

The upside: This is a straight port of the previous two-DVD release, with stellar video and audio quality. The downside: No new bonus features were thrown in, so if an A/V bump isn’t important to you, there’s nothing to see here.
