We’re closing out the week with a trio of new Blu-ray reviews for you…

First up, I’ve checked out HBO’s Deadwood: The Complete Series box set – a great show in great quality that’s well worth a look.

Next up, Tim Salmons has reviewed Warner’s new Jack the Giant Slayer on Blu-ray for you.  It’s a more entertaining film than most critics gave it credit for… provided you switch off your brain before you press play.

And Jeff Kleist has given Warner’s Blu-ray 3D version of Jack the Giant Slayer a look too.  Don’t miss it!

In announcement news this morning, Disney has set the animated Mickey’s Christmas Carol: 30th Anniversary Edition for Blu-ray release on 11/5, along with Winnie the Pooh: A Very Merry Pooh year – Gift of Friendship Edition (SRP $36.99 each).  You can see the cover artwork below.

Impulse Pictures has set Schoolgirl Report: Volume 10 – Every Girl Starts Sometime for release on DVD on 8/13.

Anchor Bay and RADiUS-TWC will release Solomon Kane on Blu-ray and DVD on 7/16.

Image and RLJ Entertainment have The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh coming on DVD only on 7/30.

And CBS has announced CSI: Crime Scene Investigation – The Thirteenth Season and Vegas: The DVD Edition for DVD only release on 9/17, followed by Hawaii Five-O: The Third Season on DVD only on 9/24.

Here’s a look at the Blu-ray cover art for both Disney titles, as well as Sony’s Olympus Has Fallen (street date TBA)…
