August 25th Blu-ray Releases

Kind of a slow week for Blu-ray releases this week. Some good oldies being released on Blu-ray such as the classic thriller movie Children of the Corn, or your girlfriend’s favorite How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The sleeper of the pack is Sunshine Cleaning, an entertaingly quirky film about 2 sisters who end up being crime scene cleaners.

MissingRemote’s Pick of the Week

From the writer of Superbad comes Adventureland, which is actually based on his real life events…I’m sure with just some minor modifications for your enjoyment, of course. This movie was pretty entertaining, although be prepared that it is pretty equal in dramatic portions as the comedic bits. It’s about a young man who is working at a Carnival to save up money for school, where he ends up making new friends and of course finding time for some romance and heartbreaks. It definitely has some laughs and kept me entertained (mostly thanks to Bill Hader who steals the show as the boss).
