Rare Round-Up: Entertainment News of the Week (27/10/2023)

As I write this, we are 3 hours and 20 minutes into our massive 10% OFF EVERYTHING sale! If you take anything away from this, aside from your sheer admiration for my masterful command of the art of the written word, take away 10% from your next order from now until Monday! Get on it before it’s gone!


As last week’s film news was led by Christopher Nolan’s biographical epic Oppenheimer, it seems only fitting that its partner in meme-crime, Greta Gerwig’s Barbie leads this week’s. Whilst Oppenheimer exploded onto pre-order, Barbie dances straight to your living rooms (hopefully you’ll treat her arrival better than Sasha did) on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K! Re-live the colour and the laughs with your Barbie or your Ken in the comfort of your own home!


If plastic dolls aren’t really your thing, may we interest you in a ceramic hand? You don’t seem convinced… well if you’d let us in and let us talk to you about Talk to Me. The Australian horror that has been described by Vice as “one of the scariest movies of the decade” has become A24’s second highest-grossing film of all time and follows a group of teens who take “talk to the hand” to the next level except this time, the face is listening. It’s yours to own now on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K along with a steelbook! Let them in.


More for you horror-fanatics, classic chiller Carrie is getting a massive limited edition Blu-ray and 4K release by Arrow that includes new box art and cards! If you’ve got a taste for terror, you know what to do…


From horror to sci-fi, the 60th Anniversary specials of BBC’s Doctor Who which put David Tennant back in the TARDIS driver’s seat along with Catherine Tate returning as Donna Noble, will see its first part of three on the 25th November. Ahead of that, we have learned that they will indeed be available to relive in all their glory on your television sets along in the form of DVD, Blu-ray along with a steelbook! Of course also including a wide array of special features!


As far as what’s out in cinemas, the video-game-based Five Nights at Freddy’s not only rips its way onto the big screen but also to pre-order on home video. If you’ve already seen the film, consider spending one, or many more nights at Freddy’s from the comfort of your sofa, bed, or anywhere you’re safe… probably.

If you want more horror, check our Halloween offers!


In music, it’s Friday and you know what that means! New Music today comes from Taylor Swift with 1989 (Taylor’s Version), Taking Back Sunday with 152, Altered Images with Bite, Black Pumas with Chronicles of a Diamond, Danse Macabre by Duran Duran, Diamonds and Pearls by Prince & The New Power Generation, History Books by The Gaslight Anthem and Who We Used to Be by James Blunt.


Other than what’s on that list, Richard Hawley’s “best-of” album Now and Then hit shelves this week. Curated by Hawley himself and his long-term collaborator, celebrate the twenty-plus solo career of the former Longpins and Pulp guitarist.


Cher, who has famously said that she wouldn’t do a Christmas album, is back with a Christmas album. It’s her first collection of new material in ten years so that’s exciting. Featuring guest appearances by the likes of Tyga, Michael Bublé and Stevie Wonder, consider having Cher be the soundtrack of your holiday season!


The same year as the 30th anniversary of their album Dookie, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Green Day are also returning with their 14th album Saviors. Described as “the soundtrack of our world on fire”, Saviors features 15 tracks and will be available in January.


For you anime fans who also happen to be gamers, we are less than one month away from the release of the Legendary Edition of Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot! Relive the legendary story of Goku and others as you experience life in the world of Dragon Ball Z through fighting, fishing, eating, and training alongside Gohan, Vegeta, and others! As well as the full game, you’ll also get both Season Passes along with story arcs and other extras!

What are you most excited about from this week?
