November 23rd Blu-ray Releases

Wow…what a tough week. I haven’t seen Eat, Pray, Love…but I’ve seen enough to know it wasn’t going to be my pick. Deadwood was a good show, but I never followed it. So…

MissingRemote’s Pick of the Week


Sly Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, DOLPH LUNDGREN…and hey even Arnold!!! Oh this movie had such potential…and I suppose even though I completely knew what to expect, it still underwhelmed. That being said, there are some pretty decent action scenes (shocking) and lots of explosions. So if you’re looking for a new film to show off that surround sound, you could do far worse. And Bruce Willis is pretty funny in it FWIW.

Note:  Warner Brothers, Universal and Fox titles which  have the 30-day Netflix/Redbox rental window imposed on them are noted with ** next to the title.


  • Bruce Willis was in it, I

    Bruce Willis was in it, I don’t even remember seeing him. I thought the banter between Jet Li and Sly was good. I just hit up RedBox for it.

    If you like westerns at all or like the character in Justified played by Timothy Olyphant than I’d definitely watch Deadwood. The first two seasons were some of the best TV I have seen. The 3rd season kind of went down hill.


    • George L. Schmauch Jr.

      I thoroughly enjoyed The

      I thoroughly enjoyed The Expendables and will definitely be watching it again when it comes to cable, as well as going to the movies to see the sequel (next year, I believe).  It was precisely what I was expecting and actually wound up being better than I feared.  (Yes, I said that right.)

      • I haven’t seen The

        I haven’t seen The Expendables yet but it looks like I may have to give it a shot.  I tend to stay away from movies that have a huge cast of known actors (and I use the term loosely in this case, with a few exceptions) because they generally rely on the cast to attract an audience rather than developing a decent storyline or any semblance of a plot.

        Deadwood was an awesome show with excellent acting as long as you could suffer through the offensive dialogue.  Seriously, they have to hold the record for the number of times you can use the term “cock$ucker” in one conversation.  If you have sensitive ears or small children within earshot you might want to steer clear of this series.  Otherwise, it’s great TV.

        • The Expendables was fun. I

          The Expendables was fun. I was worried it was going to totally suck when I walked into the theater. But it ended up being pretty funny and had some great action scenes. Definitely worth a watch if you can turn off your brain.

          Deadwood was a great series, I watched it from the beginning. Whenever I see Timothy Olyphant in anything since then I always refer to him as “Montana” haha. I watched a couple episodes of his new show “Justified” … talk about being typecast. As much as I liked the Expendables, I’d pick this series over it as a recommendation.
