New Movie Tuesday

Here are the DVD releases for next Tuesday, 15 September 2015:

American Experience: Walt Disney
Walt Disney was uniquely adept at art as well as commerce, a master filmmaker who harnessed the power of technology and storytelling. This new film examines Disney's complex life and enduring legacy. Features rare archival footage from the Disney vaults, scenes from some of his greatest films, interviews with biographers and animators, and the designers who helped turn his dream of Disneyland into reality.
Beyond the Boundary Complete Collection
The last surviving member of her clan, Mirai Kuriyama is cursed with the terrifying ability to control and manipulate blood, a power so heretical that she is shunned even by those with the ability to understand her 'gift.' Akihito Kanbara is only half human, but while the monstrous other half of his lineage seems to have doomed him to a life alone, it has also given him near invulnerability in the form of rapid healing.
The Big Bang Theory Complete 8th Season
He's baaack! Sheldon is retrieved from his soul-searching cross-country train trip (older but no wiser) and that means the gang's all here to spread another year's cheer as TV's most attended laugh seminar. Enroll in this comic curriculum to explore Leonard's minor surgery becoming a major catastrophe from his roommate, Howard's obsession over his mom's relationship with retailer-turned-caretaker Stuart, and the peculiar results of Penny's technique as a pharmaceutical sales rep.
Young Ella's merchant father remarries after the death of her mother. Ella welcomes her new stepmother and her daughters into the family home. But, when Ella's father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to 'have courage and be kind.'
CSI: Complete 15th Season
From a lethal chemistry classroom to a fatal medical marijuana clinic to a deadly memorabilia convention, the evidence leads to Sin City's most twisted corners.

CSI Cyber - Season 1
Special Agent Avery Ryan heads the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, a unit at the forefront of solving illegal activities that start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world. While other agents search for criminals in dark homes and alleys, Ryan and her team search the 'dark net', a place deep in the bowels of the Web where criminals are anonymous, money is untraceable and where everything is for sale with just a keystroke.
DisneyNature - Monkey Kingdom
A spectacular tale set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya, a clever and resourceful monkey, finds her world forever changed when she welcomes her son Kip into her colorful extended family. As Maya strives to keep Kip safe through unexpected and sometimes perilous adventures, amazing footage captures all the magic and surprises of their magnificent world.
