An Oscar favorite, a classic comedy, and a movie that is over the top fun are out this week on DVD and blu-ray.
Argo - Warner Brothers - Rated R
Argo is a movie that proves once and for all that Ben Affleck is a better director than he is an actor. He's not a bad actor, but he is a great director. This interesting, wonderful true story had me totally involved every single second. Extras include a featurette. The blu-ray adds commentary, feature length picture in picture and four featurettes.
Best in Show Blu-ray - Warner Brothers - Rated PG-13
Here's one on my list of faves: the Christopher Guest ad lib comedy classic Best in Show comes to blu-ray with Deleted scenes, commentary and two featurettes.
Sushi Girl - Magnolia - Rated R
Sushi Girl stars Tony Todd and Mark Hamill in a fun, bloody, over the top film that is surprisingly good! Plus, Hamill is a scream!
The film is awesome, but the bonus features are even better. You get commentaries, an hour long making of documentary, and a ton more, but don't miss the three cast made fake commercials. They are worth getting this all by themselves! It's My Pick of the Week!
Sinister - Summit Entertainment - Rated PG-13
Sinister is a horror film that is eerie and suspenseful. It is a better than average horror tail that gave me goosebumps - more than once! Special Features include commentaries, deleted scenes and two featurettes.
Anna Karenina - Universal - Rated PG-13
I loved the initial concept of Anna Karenina…that of moving sets in and out, but it soon gets tired and in the way. I give it an A for effort, but C- for execution. Bonus features include deleted scenes, commentary and six featurettes.
Easter Parade - Warner Brothers - Not Rated
Judy Garland and Fred Astaire star in the classic Easter Parade, now on blu-ray. Extras include commentary, an outtake musical number, a making of documentary and more.
