June 1st Blu-ray Releases

Great week if you’re a Clint Eastwood fan, as he gets the Blu-ray treatment on a lot of his great films. The Director Cut collection includes Million Dollar Baby as well as the amazing Unforgiven, as well as two others. The prison fight movie Undisputed somehow received funding to make a 3rd film…can’t imagine it’s much different than the first two–prisoners, fighting. My pick was a fairly popular one in the box office so shouldn’t be a surprise here.

MissingRemote’s Pick of the Week

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp team up yet again for Burton’s take on the kid’s movie Alice in Wonderland, and it’s a fairly trippy ride. I wasn’t in love with the movie, but Depp does a great job (really the whole cast does) and really gets you into the new world. With some twists from the original story since Alice is now grown up, but still keeps the popular characters and as long as you can stand Depp in his excentric roles, then you should enjoy this one as well. 3 Discs on this release, with BD, DVD and Digital Copy, no word yet on a 3D version though.
