Steve McQueen, who never stood in front of a hi def camera in his short lived life, rules this week’s high definition movie releases. Go figure. “Bullitt”(1968) and “The Getaway”(1972) are released in both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats.
Bullitt is the story of Lt. Frank Bullitt who kicks some serious ass in his ’68 Mustang searching for whoever killed a witness under his protection. A must have in your hi def collection.
The Getaway, if you need to be refreshed, is the story of ‘Doc’ McCoy and his wife played by Ali MacGraw who go on the run after a bank heist goes bad. This is one of those films that you can’t turn off if you’re flipping channels on a Sunday afternoon. In hi def, without commercials, you’ll enjoy it even more.
