May 11th Blu-ray Releases

Nice amount of selections out this week. I haven’t seen Daybreakers yet, but I’m always a fan of some nice vampire action, this one with a twist in that the vampires run the world. I saw Legion with anticipation, and was quickly disappointed. Edge of Darkness was a pretty decent thriller from Mel Gibson, with some nice surprises throughout. If you even sort of enjoy Westerns, Hang Em High is a CLASSIC with Clint Eastwood. And then there appears to be a bunch of Mel Brooks films being released in Blu-ray. Which brings us to my pick of the week…

MissingRemote’s Pick of the Week

I think this movie ranks 2nd, just behind Spaceballs, on my list of favorite Mel Brooks movies. The cast and writing is hysterical, and the corny jokes just happen to work. It reminds me of the Monty Python films, leaving memorable lines such as: "I’m one side, I’m on the other side. I’m on the east side, I’m on the west side. It ain’t exactly the Mississipi!" Oh yeah, Dave’s character name…Achoo. And no, that joke does not get old! Seriously, if you haven’t seen this, please do!!
