Tuesday means DVD day! Let's take a look at today's DVD releases for Tuesday March 23, 2010.
First up is a bit of a cheat with The Twilight Saga: New Moon, as it was an off schedule release date of Saturday March 20, 2010 but I don't want anyone to miss it if it's on their list. The standard 2 Disc is the one that is most readily available here in Canada, but in the States there appear to be several versions.
Next up is the John Woo historical epic Red Cliff / Chi ba which has several versions in release. Here in Canada you can get Part I & II separately or together whereas in the States you can get either the theatrical (shorter) version or the 2-in-1 version. Wow. That's a lot of version talk. Next up is Ciao, which takes a unique look at a long distance relationship and is quite a touching film. We also have the indirect effect-of-way drama Brothers starring Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Tobey Maguire.
More Oscar winning and nominated films hit the shelves this week, including the Sandra Bullock film The Blind Side and animated film Fantastic Mr. Fox.
A few notable TV on DVD releases this week including the 2009 miniseries The Prisoner starring James Caviezel and Ian McKellen which was a redux of the original series that starred Patrick McGoohan. I thought the redux was quite good, although I wished it was more than just 6 episodes. Also on DVD this week is Season 1 of Destination Truth, a show which is centred on searching out the unexplained and it's a relatively new show to me - and one that Suzie & I discussed on Hexed last week!
There are some awesome Blu-Ray deals on Akira Kurosawa films this week, I assume to align to the fact that today is the 100th anniversary of his birth. His films are so amazing, and so many are on Criterion. Today we have both Yojimbo and Sanjuro available on Blu-Ray or you can even get a 2-4-1- edition to get both.
Also out on DVD today are the family drama/comedy Everybody's Fine and the apparentlky very literal title translation film of The Men Who Stare at Goats.
