This week’s new Blu-ray releases include two of Universal’s big summer films, the newest ‘exciting’ Ice Age adventure, a special delivery from Planet Express, and HBO’s latest ‘girly’ show.  Catalog titles include Warren Betty’s foray into comics, some very non-classic Michael Caine films, and Judd Apatow’s fat camp Holocaust film starring Ben Stiller.

Nick’s Blu-ray Pick of the Week: Ted was my favorite comedy of 2012.  I wasn’t sure if Seth MacFarlane’s style of humor would transfer well to the screen but I was dead wrong.  The film begins to drag a bit in the last act but there’s so much to laugh at you won’t really care.  The theatrical cut and a Director’s Cut with seven minutes of additional footage is included.  Special features include an audio commentary with Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin, and Mark Wahlberg, deleted scenes, a making of featurette, gag reel, and more.

Theatrical Review(s): Ted, The Bourne Legacy


Throw Your Money Away Instead of Buying… Heavyweights.  Ben Stiller stars in this Judd Apatow written comedy about a fun fat camp for tweens that is taken over by a sadistic workout instructor intent on making the kids shed their extra pounds at any cost.  In a strange twist of fate many of the ‘fatties’ from Heavyweights are now skinny with the exception of SNL’s Kenan Thompson who continues his transformation into the real life Fat Albert.
