The Titanic Blu-ray 3D release is a four disc package highlighted by a really nice new transfer of the movie and a couple brand new feature length documentaries. As someone who purchased the awful Ultimate Edition set 8 years ago, this new release contains all the features from the 2005 set but boasts a far superior picture upgrade. This new transfer is a lot nicer, crisper and contains a far superior aspect ratio but does not appear to feature a new restoration print.

Dinner for Schmucks is an American remake of a much darker French farce called Le Diner de Cons [loosely translated, The Dinner Game]. It is built around the idea that Tim Conrad [Paul Rudd] can win a promotion not because of a brilliant idea he pitches at a board meeting of Fender Financial, but by bringing the most spectacular guest to a very special dinner – a dinner where each of the company’s top executives befriends a person of “extraordinary talent” and brings them to said dinner. The catch is that “extraordinary talent” is a euphemism for “idiot.” If Tim can bring the most the spectacularly idiotic person to the dinner, he can gain his promotion.
Comedy Central’s Back From Hell: Tribute to Sam Kinison may be the most honest example of its kind – which makes sense, since Kinison was probably the most honest stand-up comic there’s ever been. How honest is this tribute? Lenny Clarke, on remembering when he heard the news that Kinison was dead, ‘My first thought was, did you see the body?’

Hey about that? Road to Perdition is coming to Blu-ray on my Birthday. It’s not a film I particularly like because I’m not a fan of Tom Hanks, but this should look quite interesting on Blu-ray especially with all the deep blacks in it. The Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital and Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital with English, English SDH, French and Spanish subtitles. New bonus features include a Sam Mendes feature Introduction, A Cinematic Life: The Art & Influence of Conrad Hall and The Library: A Further Exploration of the World of Road to Perdition. It’ll also include the original DVD Commentary track from Sam Mendes, the original Making of Feature and Deleted scenes.
Shutter Island is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on June 8th. As many of you know I didn’t like this movie in the theater, but I think it could work well at home. The SHUTTER ISLAND Blu-ray includes making-of featurettes entitled “Behind the Shutters” and “Into the Lighthouse”. Music from the motion picture is available now from Rhino Records at all physical and digital retail outlets. The haunting double disc set was produced by music legend and frequent Scorsese collaborator Robbie Robertson and features a stunning array of modern classical music. The SHUTTER ISLAND DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 TVs with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, French 5.1 Surround and Spanish 5.1 Surround and English, French and Spanish subtitles. The Blu-ray is presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French 5.1 Dolby Digital, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital and Brazilian Portuguese 5.1 Dolby Digital and English, English SDH, French, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese subtitles. It doesn’t seem like it’s too feature packed, but some of those shots of the Island should look beautiful on Blu-ray.
