Not much of a week as far as new DVD releases are concerned, but there are a lot of movies making their debut on Bluray.

An overview, links, and snarky remarks are inside.

Donnie Darko (New To Blu-ray)

Ah… spooky rabbits, sleep walking, sexual predators, and falling jet engines. Yep, I’ll be getting this one. And you should too.

Donnie Darko – The Director’s Cut (Two-Disc Special Edition)

Amadeus (New To Blu-ray)

Historically inaccurate, wildly speculative, and a complete fabrication of the last years of a genuis’ life… I love this movie.

Pretty Woman (New To Blu-ray)

Julia ‘I Have A Face Like A Horse’ Roberts plays a prostitute. Richard ‘I Love Gerbils’ Gere plays himself. Together they teach the young women of today that prostitution leads to a life of luxury and true love.

Street Fighter (New To Blu-Ray)

Video game movies are almost always bad. Jean Claude Van Damme movies are almost always bad. Raul Julia movies are almost always good. Two wrongs definitely ruin a right. It’s sad that this was Raul’s last movie… very sad.

Raging Bull (New To Blu-ray)

How can you pass on an opportunity to see Robert DeNiro in one of his best roles? How can you pass up a chance to hear him ask ‘Did you f**k my wife?’ And all of this in glorious HD.

Doom (New To Blu-ray)

Did I mention that almost all video game movies are bad? I should also mention that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is the ‘new’ Jean Claude Van Damme. Too bad Raul Julia isn’t around to save this sorry piece of sh*t.
