My Two Cents (Daily) - Looney Tunes Platinum V3 at last, plus LEGO Movie & 2 more Godzilla BDs! http://t.co/0jUwLej4dZ
All right, we’ve got a nice piece of release news for you guys today, as well as a trio of new Blu-ray reviews for you to enjoy. Let’s have the reviews first…
The good Dr. Jahnke has checked in with his thoughts on a true classic of French New Wave cinema: Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless, newly re-issued in Dual Disc (Blu-ray and DVD in the same package) by our friends at Criterion.
Also today, I’ve offered up my take on what might be my favorite film of 2013: Alexander Payne’s Nebraska, now available on Blu-ray from Paramount. Having grown up in the Plains States, I can say with some authority that I’ve not seen it so perfectly captured on film since the Coen Brothers’ Fargo. The film is poignant, filled with great character performances, and it’s damn funny too. Nebraska made me laugh hard and often. I hope you enjoy it. [Read on here…]

Also today, our own Joe Marchese has turned in a review of Kino Lorber’s new The Blue Angel on Blu-ray – a 1930 German classic from director Josef von Sternberg starring Marlene Dietrich. Enjoy! [Read on here…]
