Here’s our annual polling of the best Blu-ray Disc movie of the year. 2010 was a great year for Blu-ray most weeks, and this year was hard to choose ten of the top releases. We even went way back to January of 2010 and found Oscar Winner The Hurt Locker and The Bourne Trilogy (also released in slim packaging in June, 2010) as Best Blu-ray Disc considerations. The final ten we have chosen are based upon HD Report feedback and Amazon’s “Best Selling” category.
Blu-rays that didn’t make the cut (although forever part of our libraries) include Seven, Green Zone, Kick-Ass, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and Robin Hood. The Book of Eli, The Hurt Locker and Clash of the Titans are also must-watch at least once in hi-def. Unfortunately, December 2010 releases such as Inception, The American, Salt, and Despicable Me just missed the list (you have to draw the line somewhere).
We also wish we could have included television shows in the voting but again had to omit because of space limits. TV shows released in 2010 that look absolutely great on BD and are worth mentioning include HBO’s The Pacific, Lost: The Complete Collection, Mad Men: Season Three, and the BBC’s Life (narrated by David Attenborough).
Below are our Top Ten (in alphabetical order):
- Alice in Wonderland
- Alien Anthology
- Apocalypse Now (Full Disclosure)
- Avatar (3-Disc Extended Edition)
- Iron Man 2
- Lord of the Rings (Theatrical Versions)
- Saving Private Ryan
- The Bourne Trilogy
- The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
- Toy Story 3
