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 Releases Include De Palma’s “Blow Out”

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".

On Blu-ray this week: The Incredibles, Cars, Harry Potter Deathly Hallows

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.
