Blu-ray Releases – May 31, 2011

I was really tempted to pick “Drive Angry” as my pick…and then I watched it, so that was the easiest decision in my life–it feels like Nic Cage is becoming the new Segal, just going from one weird action movie to the next. This one was just boring throughout IMO. Outside of “American Graffiti” there’s not much else that had a chance to compete for the pick. I suppose we could recommend “Legend” with a boy Tom Cruise and some mythical creatures…I haven’t seen it in 20 years so didn’t feel right recommending it.

MissingRemote’s Pick of the Week


If you have never watched a single Kubrick film, then you have missed out on some very unique experiences. His movies are quite out there, and with the exception of his truly worst film in “Eyes Wide Shut,” every other movie in this collection is a must-watch. From the legendary Full Metal Jacket, to Jack Nicholson in The Shining, to Lolita, Spartacus and 2001:A Space Odyssey, his films were really magnificent. And if you have or have not ever seen them, you should really check out the collection–just be prepared for some not so normal stuff.


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.

    You hit a home run with your pick this week, Mike! It is interesting that they included Spartacus in this collection. I imagine that if Kubrick were alive, it wouldn’t have been.
