Blu-ray Picks of the Week for June 14th

This week offers up many titles, but few worth owning... However, if you’re a fan of Japanese cinema (no, no the shock type, but a more poetical picture) Criterion has a little something for you... and they’re also releasing an underrated Nicolas Roeg headtrip for your viewing pleasure. For those with more mainstream tastes there’s a slew of recent theatrical films on Blu-ray, and Warner’s catches fans up with Harry Potter with more HD Ultimate Editions of the successful franchise.

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for June 7th

This Tuesday offers a huge amount of Blu-ray releases... but it’s a mixed bag to be sure. What should you consider for your HD library and viewing pleasure? Here’s what we recommend for this Tuesday, June 7th:

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for May 31st

This week the word on the street is giving high recommendations to the following Blu-ray releases:

Blu-ray Review: The Firm

This Sunday on Blu-ray, Paramount releases The Firm (1993) starring Tom Cruise... but is it worth buying or are we being asked to purchase something that, sooner or later, probably soon, will end up a lot cheaper after being dumped into a bargain bin? Let’s find out...

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for May 24th

This week on Blu-ray Warner Bros is offering up some goodies worth of the format ("Papillon", "Grand Prix"). Criterion also puts two older titles on Blu-ray ("The Great Dictator", "Solaris"), and that’s always worth a mention for the loving care they give their releases; however, if you own the already awesome DVDs, you need to consider the extra spend for what amounts to minor improvements at best.

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for May 17th

This week in Blu-ray brings us some Justin Bieber, a few Criterion releases as well as a solid classic from Fox. The rest of the bunch... well, it depends on what your interests are and if what you consider a value in Blu-ray titles that may or may not have a terrific transfer behind them (most don’t... so, caveat emptor).

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for May 10th

This week on Blu-ray we've got the Alien set, now available as stand-alone Blu-ray discs, and a load of Digibook releases on BD that are definitely worth a purchase for your HD library. Also recommended are some Digibook releases, including Patton and Master and Commander. Other blu-ray discs to hit the shelves are Blue Valentine, one of the best films of 2010, and a Criterion release of a very fun Jonathan Demme movie, Something Wild, that may be worth a rental or even a buy. For Marilyn Monroe fans, a few classic films come your way and offer BD-quality transfers of old faves.

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for July 13th

This week there's not a heck of a lot to recommend as must-own Blu-ray discs, though for dramedy you may wanna check out Ben Stiller in "Greenberg" as well as the newest Atom Egoyan film for rental. The standouts are "In Bruges" and Christopher Nolan's "Insomnia" remake.

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for July 6th

Warner Bros. has released some great BD's lately, but these double-feature releases seem destined for the cut-out bin at your local big-box discount store. Let's take a gander at three decent picks for the week:

Blu-ray Picks of the Week for June 29th

This week is long on releases... check 'em out below. A few are recommended (The Crazies, The Leopard, The White Ribbon), and one is partially recommended (Predator), but the rest are a mixed bag, though the concert films should be outstanding on Blu-ray.
