Top 10 New Releases on Blu Ray : Feb. 2nd, 2010 - Welcome!

This week: Zombies - Saturday's full moon must have gotten under our skin. Plus some trippy weirdness at the Lake House, in Las Vegas & the City of Eternal Night. The week's jam-packed with new releases, so we've squeezed in a couple above & beyond the top 10...

Dark City (Director's Cut) ~ William Hurt, Kiefer Sutherland, Jennifer Connelly
Phenomenal transfer for this sci-fi mini-classic. Spoiler alert: style defeats substance.

Zombieland ~ Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson ( 2010)
A notable entry in the oft-ignored Horror-comedy genre. Woody works his usual magic on-screen.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang ~ Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer, Michelle Monaghan
We counted 43 plot twists, then had to take a bathroom break. Small time hood (Robert) stumbles into an acting audition & winds up in Hollywood. Let's just say it gets complicated.

The Lake House ~ Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock, Christopher Plummer
"Keanu is totally over-the-top & thrillingly emotive!" --Kidding

The Last King of Scotland ~ Forest Whitaker, James McAvoy, Kerry Washington, Gillian Anderson (2010)
A Scottish doctor's life becomes entangled with one of the world's most barbaric men: Idi Amin. Fictional thriller with a political/historical backdrop. Forest Whitaker's highly touted performance as the Ugandan dictator.

The Proposition ~ Guy Pearce, et al.
Brutal & intense. Not for the faint-of-heart.

L.A. Confidential ~ Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kim Basinger
Oscar-winning screenplay. The gritty, sordid tale of sex, scandal, betrayal, and corruption of all sorts.

Universal Soldier: Regeneration ~ Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme (2010)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas ~ Johnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro, Tobey Maguire, and Ellen Barkin (2010)
Get out your polka-dotted zebras & screaming eggplants, it's one heck of a road trip.

Gangs of New York (Remastered) ~ Leonardo DiCaprio, Jim Broadbent, John C. Reilly, and Henry Thomas (2010)

Love Happens ~ Aaron Eckhart, Jennifer Aniston ( 2010)
Yes it does Jennifer, but then the kids come along, and it's all downhill from there.

Mystic River ~ Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Emmy Rossum (2010)
"Clint Eastwood's 24th directorial outing and one of the finest films of 2003." --Jeff Shannon

Mona Lisa Smile ~ Julia Roberts, Kirsten Dunst, Julia Stiles, Maggie Gyllenhaal (2010)
Think of it as an all-female quasi-tribute to 'Dead Poets Society'. Julia is effortless in her role here.
