There are some really great releases coming out that I may buckle down and get a Blu-ray player. I was hoping to skip over the next format, going from DVD to digital, but there are so many films now I want to own. Star Wars almost pushed be over to purchase but with things like Chinatown and Heat out on Blu-ray I may just have to breakdown and do it.
|1. Jack Reacher|
The Tom Cruise kicking ass film is now out on DVD/Blu-ray. Cruise both starred and produced this based on a novel film about former military cop turned into gritty non-attached murder investigator. This did well both with critics and at the box office but it never intrigued me enough to actually see it. Maybe now I will.
|2. The Great Escape|
The 1963 classic film is now available on Blu-ray so you can see one of the best motorcycle chases put on film all over again. Starring guys like Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, Charles Bronson, and James Coburn. They eventually remade this not to long ago but this is the one to watch.
I have never see Face/Off and I feel bad about it. Now out on Blu-ray this is your typical body switch cliche blow up and twisted around by director John Woo. Basically a vehicle to let Nic Cage act like a murderer is enough for me to want to finally see it. Maybe this is the time.
An absolute classic that every person should see. This noir film is currently on Netflix instant so I suggest you watch in on there before deciding to purchase this on Blu-ray. However if you're looking to add a classic to your collection then this is, for sure, one of the best.
It seems like this may have already been released, at some point, on Blu-ray. But who cares right, it's Heat. Directed and produced by Michael Mann and staring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, and so many more this is the best heist film in my opinion. Some of the best robberies on film can be found in Heat and definitely worth your bucks.
