You would think that the studios would like to spread their films around a bit so that a lot of new releases wouldn’t come out the same week but here we are again. One of, if not the biggest movie of last year spies its way onto Blu-ray and is joined by RZA’s directorial debut, a flowery teenage ‘dramedy’, 2012′s only film about a virgin stuck in an iron lung, a couple of Showtime’s most heralded shows, and we are beckoned back to Silent Hill. For once there isn’t much of note concerning catalog titles, hopefully we’ll have more luck next week.
Nick’s Blu-ray Pick of the Week: Skyfall was my favorite film of 2012 and so far is probably the best Blu-ray of 2013. The video transfer and audio track is nothing short of perfection and the disc has a good amount of special features including two commentary tracks; one with director Sam Mendes, the other with Producers Barbara Broccoli & Michael G. Wilson and Production Designer Dennis Gassner, an hour long documentary called Shooting Bond, footage from the London premiere at the Royal Albert Hall, and the film’s theatrical trailer. Skyfall was amazing theatrically and is just as great on Blu-ray and easily receives my highest recommendation.
