Campy cult classic Barbarella, starring a young, sexy Jane Fonda, arrives on Blu-ray with the infamous title sequence, zero-gravity striptease now in pristine HD.
While I didn’t find A Game of Shadows that great, I can’t deny that Robert Downey Jr. is just entertaining, as is Warner’s excellent Blu-ray for the film.
Nicolas Cage puts in an underwhelming performance in this crime thriller that is saved by Roger Donaldson’s direction and cast member Guy Pearce.
Despite a less than stellar 3D conversion, this Korean sc-fi thriller is a satisfying mix of Alien and The Host that sci-fi geeks are sure to appreciate. The 2D transfer and strong lossless 5.1 soundtrack more than compensate for the 3D’s shortcomings.
Aimed at your basic thrill seeker, Liosngate’s new Blu-ray, for Man on a Ledge, may fail as a film; however, on a technical level this is a pure winner.
This Spider-Man 3 “reissue” from Sony is no more than the identical release minus the second disc of bonus features with new cover art and UltraViolet and a movie ticket offer included. On the positive side, since it is the same, the picture and sound are just as great.
This Means War is a refreshingly original romantic comedy that is funny and should appeal to men and women alike.
The angst, the humor, the comedy, and the special effects are all beefed up in Spider-Man 2, but nothing on this Blu-ray reissue really is, making a double-dip nowhere near worth it for anyone who already owns the original DVD.
Sony’s reissue of the original Spider-Man movie doesn’t offer much new for those who already own the first Blu-ray release or original DVD, but if you’re new to Blu-ray (or Spider-Man) then definitely give this one a go.
The only thing this latest effort from golden boys Drafthouse Films is a parody of is itself — skip it.
