Blu-ray Releases – August 23, 2011

Another week with not a lot of new releases. The Beaver stars a depressing Mel Gibson who talks via a hand puppet I believe, not sure. Troll Hunter looks thoroughly low budget. Swingers and Breakfast at Tiffany’s are classics. If you liked Super Size Me, a new documentary by the same creator is out, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. All in all, a decent week.

MissingRemote’s Pick of the Week

I know most of you probably expected me to pick Swingers here, but Rounders was just so thoroughly entertaining throughout, even after all these years…and I don’t even play poker! Story of two former card hustlers, one who’s trying to stay straight and finish law school, and his best friend who just got out of prison and owes a lot of money. Arguably my favorite role for John Malkovich EVER. CHECK!

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.
