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.
Criterion Collection releases a long awaited (and sometimes much maligned) Blu-ray disc today... Brian De Palma's "Blow Out." Also recommended this week: Alejandro Jodorowsky's brilliant, mesmerizing and incredibly loopy neo-Western, "El Topo".
It's a week dominated by animated films with Disney/Pixar's The Incredibles getting a full blown release in a four disc edition with Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copies. Cars, previously released on Blu-ray in '07 and as a Combo Pack with DVD in '09, is now available as a two-disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo (in Blu-ray packaging) with plenty of extras and deleted scenes.
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.
