It’s a terribly slow news day today in terms of Blu-ray and DVD-related announcements, but that’s okay. You should all just go out and see Ridley Scott’s The Martian anyway. I saw it last night and I’ll tell you, it’s his best film since the 2005 Kingdom of Heaven: Director’s Cut. The film honors Andy Weir’s original book, retaining much of its scientific accuracy and sense of humor, and it nails the real-life spirit and dedication that’s at the heart of what NASA does, getting all the little details of manned spaceflight correct – no small task. Best of all, it does all this while managing to be entertaining as hell. I absolutely loved The Martian, and it’s that rare film worth seeing in 3D too – the vast open spaces of the Red Planet have never looked so epic.  [Read on here…]

We’re kicking off the new week with a pair of new Blu-ray reviews. Tim has checked out Scream’s Class of 1984: Collector’s Edition and Jeff has taken a closer look at Universal’s new Battlestar Galactica: Definitive Collection set. Both are worth your attention, so enjoy the reviews.  [Read on here…]

This is a quick note to let you know that I’ve just posted my in-depth review of Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, newly released on Blu-ray 3D Deluxe Edition by 20th Century Fox. It’s not a particularly good film, unfortunately, but the Blu-ray special edition experience at least is outstanding.

We’ll have more new Blu-ray reviews soon, so be sure to check back.

All right, this is just a quick post with three things in mind:

First, I’ve posted a review of Fox’s recent Kingdom of Heaven: Ultimate Edition Blu-ray – a worthy upgrade of a previously fine DVD special edition of a great film by Ridley Scott. Do give it a look.  [Read on here…]
