Blu-ray Picks of the Week for May 31st

With the long weekend, and an even longer list of Blu-ray releases over the past few says, including this Tuesday’s traditional street date, here’s a short rundown as we get over our Memorial Day Hangover here at HD Report (and no, we didn’t see the cash grab sequel this weekend)…  We didn’t get a chance to write out each of these (pure weekend laziness compounded by booze n’ BBQs), so this is simply a rundown of recommendations.  Note that, no matter how much we love the following films, it’s the BD quality we’re always letting you know about.  If it’s not recommended or has a light recommendation, it doesn’t mean we hated the movie itself.  That said…
