The idea of releasing limited edition versions of movies that are already out perplexes me. The majority of the time the differences are few except for the price. I remember once purchasing Mr. Smith Goes to Washington on DVD for less than $5. About a year later the same film, in slightly better packaging, was $15 at the same store I bought it from. No difference in quality, no added commentaries or special features, just a snazzier package and a higher price.
|1. Shaun of the Dead|
One of a whole handful of films released in a special "steelbook" limited edition today. I have no clue what steelbook means other than instead of plastic maybe it comes in a metal case? If that's what you really want then here are a few choices.
|2. Hot Fuzz|
Another steelbook edition of a pretty good movie. Consider this a good primer for the upcoming release of End of the World.
|3. The Big Lebowski|
A true classic is also one of the steelbook releases. If you haven't had the chance to try out some Lebowski now is the time. It's available on most streaming services but once you fall in love this will be ready for purchase.
|4. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone|
This mediocre comedy that fell off the face of the Earth once it was released is now out on home video. This film was a disappointment for the studio and didn't even make its budget back at the box office. I really hope Steve Carell can do better in the future, that kid has some talent.
