DVD and Blu Ray Releases for 04/09/13

Welcome to this week of DVD and Blu Ray releases. We are looking pretty slim like last week. Not too many releases worth mentioning, but it’s looking like this will be the last of the drought. Then we get into some meaty titles. Let’s see what we got this week.

Naked Lunch- Criterion Blu Ray

naked-lunch-blu

This is the movie I realized how weird and fucked up a movie could be. From 1991, David Cronenberg made a disturbing visual masterpiece. This is a must for any fan of cinema and the strange mind of Cronenberg. This is definitely worth the Blu Ray-Criterion Collection treatment, and hands down the pick of the week.

Hyde Park On Hudson

hyde-park-on-hudson-blu-ray-coverBill Murray plays Franklin D. Roosevelt in Hyde Park On Hudson. The plot centers around FDR having an affair with his distant cousin. Hmmm… pretty interesting.

The Sorcerer And The White Snake

Jet Li stars in The Sorcerer and the White Snake. Based on an ancient Chinese fable bout a female demon falling in love with a mortal.

The Dick Van Dyke Show: Season 1

dike-van-dyke-bluFirst time on Blu Ray–The Dick Van Dyke Show: Season 1. I saw Dick Van Dyke on Conan promoting the DVD box set, and they restored every episode. The quality of the clip I saw looked incredible. The Blu Ray is only going to look better.

Bad Kids Go To Hell

bad-kids-go-to-hell-dvdBad Kids Go To Hell is a horror/thriller where 6 students serving detention start dying off. It says Judd Nelson is in this, I wonder if he says any Breakfast Club lines?

Howdy Kids!! A Saturday Afternoon Western Roundup

howdy-kidsI told you it was a slow week. This is a collection of western shows from the 1950′s. This set has 24 episodes and includes shows The Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers, and Annie Oakley. Perfect gift for the grandparents.
