|Top 10 New Releases on Blu Ray|
Blu-ray10.evjoy.com : Jan 26th, 2010 - Welcome!
This week: M.J.fans, it's time to light up all over. Plus a strong set of very watchable cflicks featuring Keira Knightley, Nastassja Kinski, Drew Barrymore & Renée. To counteract all this feel-good, the release of 'WWII in HD' & 'Highlander'.
And Lou Reed's 'Berlin' people; Lou Reed!
Rehearsals and some fairly remarkable backstage footage of the Gloved One as he prepped for a series of sold-outs in London.
Cut from three thousand hours of color footage evidently no one knew existed. As you can imagine, it's not going to be easy viewing.
"Achingly empty American spaces stick longer in the memory than the dialogue. Winner of the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival."
One of our favorites.
Pride & Prejudice ~ Keira Knightley, Matthew Macfadyen, Rosamund Pike, and Jena Malone (2010)
This being the big screen feature film, not the mini-series blu-ray released last April.
(993) (Note reviews are for DVD version)
Whip It ~ Sarah Habel, Marcia Gay Harden, Juliette Lewis, Drew Barrymore (2010) Drew Barrymore directs this comedy-drama while on roller skates.
The helmet's not army issue, by the way. Better than you might expect.
Atonement ~ Keira Knightley, James Mcavoy, Saoirse Ronan, Brenda Blethyn (2010) More Keira in HD. Things could be worse. Guys, tell 'em you bought it for her.
The R-rated trials & tribulations of one Ms. B. Jones.
Mark Darcy: "Natasha, this is Bridget Jones. Bridget works in a publishing house and used to play around naked in my paddling pool."
Surrogates ~ Bruce Willis, James Cromwell, Ving Rhames, and Radha Mitchell (2010) (30)
"Honey, I don't know what you are. I mean, for all I know, you could be some big fat dude..." Dare we ask, "What'chu talkin' 'bout Willis?"
Saw VI ~ Shawnee Smith, et al. (2010)
Those expecting an instructional video dedicated to the woodworking handyman, you've been warned.
Clashing swords, severed heads, score by 'Queen'. Let's hope the BD transfer is better than the DVD edition - the word's not in yet.

Hi Def Music Of The Week:
Reed performs his legendary 1973 album, 'Berlin
', live for the first time. 3 film fest awards for good reason. Undeniable soul, but check your happy face before pressing 'play'. Need more Lou? Here you go
(18) (Reviews are for DVD version - Blu-ray is just out today)
James Brown (aka the human fire alarm), B.B. King, Bill Withers, Celia Cruz, and Muhammad Ali bring you the cure for being totally bummed by Lou Reed.
