DVD Tuesday: Sept. 16, 2008

This is my first DVD Tuesday post. Many sites list ALL of the DVD titles that come out on Tuesday. They usually have a lethargic list with links and thats that. My DVD Tuesday list will only comprise of films I’ve seen, own and think are worth your viewing pleasure. This DVD Tuesday brings three films that I really enjoy and hopefully, so will you.

The Mist (Blu-ray)

If you’ve been on this site before you know I love The Mist. Frank Darabont knocked this one out of the park. I could talk about this film for days. I think my film review for The Mist was between 800 to 900 words long. I had a lot to say. Check this out. You will not be disappointed. This is one great horror film with tons of surprises and great acting.

1408 (Blu-ray)

1408 is another Stephen King story that is brought to the screen very well. I thought the film would be crap be it is excellent. Great acting by Cusack. Loved the ending, didn’t like the alternate ending.

Pirates of the Carriabean (Blu-ray)

Most people love Captain Jack Sparrow, even if they don’t like all of the Pirates of the Caribbean films that house him. If you don’t own any copies of this film and have a Blu-Ray player, this is probably the version for you. You do get to see Keira Knightly in HD. 🙂

    I just got Transformers on Blu-Ray, awesome picture. Mist was cool, as was 1408 but Im trying to leave my Blu-Ray purchases to stuff that actually looks cool hi-def, although Mist is said to look ok, Speed Racer is probably my next one, i liked the movie and the picture is supposed to be eye popping in hi-def.

  • I’ve never seen Speed Racer. I stayed away because of the reviews but I’ll give it a viewing and see for myself.

    If the look of the movie is fine by you and you keep in mind that’s it’s based on an old cartoon then you can enjoy the cartoon, they stretch what you can do in this medium.

  • Well Casshern was based off an old cartoon and that was cool so I probably watch this later in the week.

    Thats the problem with the internet and movie sites, they can taint your opinion of something, your mind starts to wonder, can all these people be wrong? For this movie I dont know what people were expecting, maybe because its from the Wachowski brothers, maybe they were expecting some hardcore Matrix type stuff, and that is what they did but in a family action film instead of some cyberpunk realm.

  • I thought Speed would be a giant goof ball flick and people’s opinion did color my perception of the film.

    Maybe people were hoping for another Day of Thunder or something.
