June 15th Blu-ray Releases
After a skimpy week of releases last week, there are a fair number of good selections this week. Mary & Max received a lot of positive reviews, but I was rather bored throughout it. The Stepfather was a dreadfully unoriginal thriller, predictable from start to finish. Luckily there are some gems here–who can forget the CLASSIC FLASH GORDON!?!??! Seeing fat bearded warriors with wings sound interesting? Then you need to check it out! I’m curious to see how it looks on Blu-ray, and if it’ll actually detract from it. Then again, it’s been at least 10 years since I’ve even seen it. Other than that, When in Rome is exactly what you expect it to be, Youth In Revolt is great as long as you like Michael Cera (who plays the rather same character he always does), and then Unthinkable was a very intense film that hasn’t gotten a lot of publicity but deserves some attention for Samuel L. Jackson’s role in it.
