October 6th Blu-ray Releases

A lot of movies coming out this week on Blu-ray, but not a lot in the form of must see’s. If you’re a Jack Black, maybe you’ll enjoy Year One more than I did. I thought it was watchable, but that’s mainly just due to Michael Cera–the acting was pretty bad, especially the random accents. Outside of that, there’s not a lot new here. I heard good things about the Kurt Cobain documentary, but that’s just sad to me.

MissingRemote’s Pick of the Week

Frequent readers of these Blu-ray posts will know my familiarity and appreciation of some of the classic Japanese horror movies. Audition comes from arguably the most famous of those directors, Takashi Miike. Just like with the other similar movies, this one is not for the faint hearted and definitely pushes some boundaries. The premise is pretty simple, a guy is looking for a new wife so his friend decides to convince him to hold auditions (get it?!?!) pretending it’s for a movie. Needless to say…things do not go as planned.
