On Blu-ray Disc this week

There’s certainly no shortage of good Blu-ray releases this week. Start with Seven Samurai (1954) from The Criterion Collection which includes a fifty-minute documentary on the making of the film, a two hour conversation between directors Nagisa Oshima and Akira Kurosawa, essay booklet, and additional extras. The hi-def transfer includes the original uncompressed monaural soundtrack and optional DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack.

Psycho celebrates 50 years with the release of Psycho (50th Anniversary Edition) on hi-def Blu-ray Disc. The film stars Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin, and Janet Leigh in one of Alfred Hitchcock’s most memorable films. The single BD-50 is formatted at 1080p resolution with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. Extras include the “Making of Psycho,” behind-the-scenes photographs, and other production featurettes.

Apocalypse Now (Three-Disc Full Disclosure Edition) contains three separate films: Apocalypse Now (1979); Apocalypse Now Redux (2001); and Hearts of Darkness (a 1991 making-of documentary). For the first time the film is set to disc in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio. See full description of this disc set.

Predators (2010) stars Adrien Brody and Laurence Fishburne in this summer release that has a predicable plot, didn’t do particularly well in theaters, but as an action/sci-fi film is a lot of fun to watch. The single Blu-ray Disc is formatted in 2.39:1 aspect ratio with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. Extras include commentaries with Robert Rodriguez and Nimr√≥d Antal, featurettes, deleted and extended scenes. Predators also comes with a digital copy on a separate DVD!
