|Top 10 New Releases on Blu Ray|
Blu-ray10.evjoy.com : January 12th, 2010 - Welcome!
This week: Duchovny's a very confused man, Stallone's clinging to life, Rachel Weisz is riding a unicycle while balancing two chainsaws, & Sam Rockwell might see you and several other creepier things on the far side of the Moon. (Stick with us; there's no dark side of it after all...)
The Hurt Locker ~ Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, Guy Pearce, Ralph Fiennes (2010) (42)
An intense portrayal of elite soldiers with one of the most dangerous jobs in the world: disarming bombs in the heat of combat.
Moon ~ Sam Rockwell, Kevin Spacey, Dominique McElligott, and Rosie Shaw (2010)
A bad case of island fever 240,000 miles from Earth, and Rockwell's facing the wrong way.
"The marriage of Fellini's hyperreal imagery, dreamy sidebars, and the gravity of Guido's (Marcello Mastroianni) increasing self-awareness make this as much a deeply moving, soulful film as it is an electrifying spectacle." --Tom Keogh
In the Loop ~ James Gandolfini, Peter Capaldi, Anna Chlumsky, and James Doherty (2010) (11)
Cleverness might outweigh character development here. But if you enjoy clever film-making, hey.
Today's forecast: Rocky & snow-covered.
Good grief man, watch where you're pointing that thing; it's Stallone up there hangin' by a thread.
"Like a boa constrictor, this movie slowly coils around you, then squeezes." --Bret Fetzer
Better than you might expect - worth checking out.
Billy Jack ~ Tom Laughlin, Delores Taylor, Clark Howat, and Howard Hesseman (2010) (168)
The Secret ~ David Duchovny, Lili Taylor, and Olivia Thirlby i.e., the hyper-creepy ghost story, not the screen adaptation of the infamous self-help book.
Documentaries Of The Week: 1. (5)
Hi Def Music Of The Week:
In 5.1 Surround. A mind-blowing trip & luscious food for any SACD / DSD compatible player. But yeah, there really is no 'dark side' of the moon - the backside's in full sunlight half of the month.
