BluRay 10 - Your Movie Newsletter
Top 10 New Releases on Blu Ray : November 6th, 2009 - Welcome!

This week: "Adventures With Purpose". It just sounds good, doesn't it? It makes a good theme, and an exceptional documentary series as well. We're up to here in decent new releases this week; a bit over our usual 10, so be prepared to scroll a bit...

Wings of Desire (Criterion Collection) ~ Bruno Ganz, Solveig Dommartin, Otto Sander, Peter Falk (2009)
The purpose in this film is to ask: is a purely spiritual existence enough of an adventure?  (Evidently, angels can't see color, but their monochrome vision warrants 1080p.)

Heavy on the adventure, light on the purpose.

North by Northwest (50th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Book) ~ Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, James Mason, and Martin Landau (2009)
Has anyone uncovered why Hitchcock named this suspense classic N/NW? He's not even sure he was so sure... ya gotta love the creative mind. Beautifully shot & scripted.

The root of our theme this week, a beautiful series, just released.

Hi Def Music Of The Week:

Ok, we have to admit we're not solo Wakeman fans. Granted, he was fantastic in Yes, Strawbs & with David Bowie, Cat Stevens and Al Stewart. All true. But the solo stuff.... it's a matter of taste. Maybe yours.
