Sony Pictures releases Blu-ray Essentials Collection

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing what they call the Blu-ray Essentials Collection — a selection of twelve titles on Blu-ray Disc that are must own films. No surprise to find Casino Royale, Spider-Man 3, and Black Hawk Down in the collection, but is The Fifth Element still relevant as a must-own? How about Bad Boys or Ghost Rider?

Of particular note are the releases of Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2 for the first time on Blu-ray Disc, although the films were released in a box set as part of Spider-Man – The High Definition Trilogy in October, 2007, and also as part the Superhero Blu-ray Collection in December, 2008.

The Sony Blu-ray Essentials Collection are definitely priced right: Casino Royale, Snatch, and Hancock for $10.99; Da Vinci Code, Black Hawk Down, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3 are priced at $15.49.

The twelve titles include: Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, The Fifth Element, Black Hawk Down, Casino Royale, Bad Boys, Snatch, Hancock, Da Vinci Code, Ghost Rider, and Air Force One.

What do you think? Are all these films “Must Own” and the “Best of Blu-ray?”


  1. Casino, Black Hawk, Spidey 3 – only ones I would say are must have although I dont have the first Spidermans yet. DaVinci is a good rental. Air Force is great but not the best quality.
