A House DVD'd

Criterion and Rooster Teeth give you something worth wishing for

Is your Xbox One hooked up yet? Can you find your Wiimote? What's the damn password to your (let's be honest) shared Netflix account again? Why is that movie only showing at the cineplex the furthest from your house?

There are dozens of ways to watch a movie these days, and many of those come with their own inherent stressors. When looking for a thoughtful gift for a film lover, we say nothing beats a good, relatively old-fashioned DVD. Let them watch what they want, when they want it, and with a boatload of extra features that will make it worth your hard-earned dollars.
