One day I’ll figure out why studios persist on overloading one week with so many big releases that most people can’t afford to pick up every movie that they might want and then in other weeks barely release anything. Perhaps there’s a method to their madness that I’m just not aware of. This week only has three major new releases; one of 2012’s most bizarre films featuring an all-star cast in multiple roles, the return to a deadly massacre in the heart of Texas and another season of America’s favorite blood spatter pattern analyst/serial killer. Catalog releases mostly include a large assortment of Sony releases all remastered for 4K displays… not exactly something that will appeal to the masses.
Please keep in mind that a portion of anything you purchase from Amazon after you click through any of the links goes to help support the work here at Movies Hate You Too and we do appreciate it. Thanks.
Nick’s Blu-ray Pick of the Week: Texas Chainsaw 3D is one of the more surprising films of 2013 thus far. It’s very silly, incredibly fun and even occasionally ‘scary.’ As a casual Texas Chainsaw Massacre fan I thought there was a lot to like about the film but YMMV depending on your love and admiration of the original film, its sequels and remakes. Both the 3D and 2D versions of the film are available on the same disc as well as a Digital and Ultraviolet copy of film. Special features include three commentary tracks including one with Tobe Hooper, director of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Other extras include assorted “making of” featurettes, an alternate opening and the film’s original theatrical trailer.
