Blu-Ray

High School Musical 2

Disney’s Blu-Rays have been impressive as they have completely captured what the format is all about; crisp images, lossless sound and impeccable bonus features all featured in the highest definition possible.  When this title was announced in their BD lineup, I was somewhat perplexed as to why t...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (BLU-RAY)

Order of the Phoenix is not the most exciting film in the series by far but it is one of the darkest.  OotP is merely a bridge from the quaint and subtle movies that started the series and the final two event-filled endings.  The movie is relatively slow moving until the exciting, sad and heartwr...

20 Million Miles to Earth (BLU-RAY)

Ok, a FIFTY year old movie being released on high definition Blu-Ray?  What’s the point?  How good can it be?  Oh, it’s COLORIZED, that should improve it a ton, right?  Surprisingly, yes.  The movie looks fantastic and is a sometimes forgotten gem once again brought out of obscurity.... Read more

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (BLU-RAY)

For some reason Fox decided to release this for the first time on Blu-Ray without the director’s cut version attached as a bonus or the main feature.  The good thing is that the director’s cut isn’t really something that is craved or needed as the original cut is fiercely entertaining in itself....

Cast Away (BLU-RAY)

There were a lot of people that didn’t like this movie for one reason or another, be it the lack of dialogue for over half an hour in the middle, the “crazy” acting with a volleyball or the non-closure of the ending.  I was on the side of liking this movie.  I haven’t seen it in years and was hap...

Superbad (BLU-RAY)

If you are wondering why Sony would release a movie like Superbad on high definition, the answer is simple.  While they are slowly rolling out their catalog titles, Sony has been devoted to releasing all of their theatrical releases on blu-ray the same time they first come out on standard DVD.  K...

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (BLU-RAY)

For what is billed as the “biggest trilogy” of the decade, I was expecting Disney to pull out all the stops for this one.  Of course, the “biggest” trilogy statement is based purely off box office, not critical mass (see Lord of the Rings for that one).... Read more

I Know Who Killed Me (BLU-RAY)

I don’t normally review the actual film but rather the quality of the presentation itself but, my god, was this movie horrid.  It’s confusing, badly acted, horribly executed and, well, just horrendously terrible, one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time.  The attempt at “noir” fails mis...

Paprika (BLU-RAY)

A beautifully moving and utterly confusing anime comes to life more than ever on blu-ray with the beguiling Paprika.  There have only been a handful of anime releases on the high def format, mainly because of the lack of quality in the animation process for most of them, but this, along with Sony...

Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (BLU-RAY)

Despite the success (or lack there of) and critical acclaim (or lack thereof) of this quickly made third installment of the popular franchise, the movie is nonetheless a good-feeling movie that will make you counting the days until Christmas.... Read more
