    "DVD Is the New Vinyl" Podcast: Featuring Tilda Swinton, Alessandro Nivola & Lili Taylor

    While recuperating from a deep-fried, ever-boozy, never-sleepy nine days at the SXSW Film Festival (a shout-out here to senior programmer Jarod Neece, whose delicious book "Austin Breakfast Tacos: The Story of the Most Important Taco of the Day" resolved at least two hangovers), your indefatigable D...

    "DVD Is The New Vinyl" Podcast: Chuck Klosterman, Alex Ross Perry, J.T. Petty

    Here's your Martha Stewart-esque craft tip for the month, physical media lovers: Did you know that a scratched DVD can be polished with just a dab of toothpaste? Stay away from extra-whitening product (you don't want to bleach your Criterions!), but when mixed with water and wiped clean with a micro...

    "DVD Is The New Vinyl" Podcast: Paul Dano, Bobcat Goldthwait & Josh Johnson

    Yeah, yeah, this month's nearly over and all the best film news has come and gone: Sundance happened, the Golden Globes were half-boozy and half-boring as usual, and what got nominated for all the Oscars this season? (Yawn.) But while you were busy refreshing your Twitter feed anyway, another crop o...

    "DVD Is The New Vinyl" Podcast: David Lowery, James Gray & Buck Angel

    As we close out 2013, it seems like every film writer and reader has a list (Santa even checked his twice) with their Favorite [insert number] Films of the Year, the Most Underrated Performances and Overrated Directors, the Best Top 10 List of Lists, et cetera. (Check out ours). But woe, the pitiabl...

    "DVD Is The New Vinyl" Podcast: Kathleen Hanna, Mike Birbiglia & Joshua Rothkopf

    With this freshly remastered edition of "DVD Is the New Vinyl," another format war has been fought and won. But rather than the skirmish between Blu-ray and HD DVD (remember that one?) or VHS and Betamax (now we're really dating ourselves), the podcast has trumped the listicle, two words that weren'...

    DVD Is The New Vinyl: Famous Pimps, Infamous Early Fassbinder & 'Q: The Winged Serpent'

    “Truthfully, DVD is not the new vinyl," a reader recently confronted me, arguing that the beloved analog qualities of records (the richer, warmer recording; that nostalgic hiss and crackle) are fetishized in ways that most movies on digital discs are not. Sure, the latter may be closer in spirit to ...

    DVD Is The New Vinyl: Rock Hudson Has 'Seconds,' Nazi Escapes & 'Ishtar'

    Before digging into early-to-mid August's disc highlights, I'd like to set the Way Back Machine to two weeks ago and point out some eclectic late-July gems we missed, such as Twilight Time's exquisite Blu-ray edition of Walter Hill's 1978 neo-noir "The Driver," Olive Films' unexpected release of Ant...

    "DVD Is The New Vinyl": Girls Gone Wild Edition

    As if filmgoers stopped watching DVDs and Blu-rays altogether around the Fourth of July, distributors tend to be a little lighter in early-to-mid July with their number and caliber of releases—though quality documentaries certainly prevail. However, if there's one trend vamping through the first thr...

    Video Free Brooklyn Presents: "DVD Is The New Vinyl" Best of June Edition

    My appetite for finding and devouring new music is so voracious that I have to empty my hard drive annually just to make room for more MP3s, yet it wasn't until my wife bought me a turntable that I became one of those obsessive, fetishistic record collectors right out of "High Fidelity."
