Blu-Ray: Heinlein Classic Becomes Predestination!

Predestination

The Spierig Brothers have a distinctly skewed take on genre film – take their ‘vampires won’ film Daybreakers – and they make smart, unique entertainments.

It is only natural, then, that they’d adapt the ultimate time travel short story – Robert A. Heinlein’s All You Zombies – for film. It’s one of the trickiest time travel/paradox stories ever written and they persuaded Ethan Hawke (who also starred in Daybreakers) to take the lead role, a Temporal Agent who seems more suited to his job than anyone else.

Predestination comes to home video on February 10th. Extras include a ten-part making of documentary and a blooper reel. For further details – and a look at the trailer – follow the jump.

The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man visited – which is to say ‘towered over’ – the Today Show crew to wish Al Roker Happy Birthday. I mean, who you gonna call? Right?

DVD: Breaking Bad: The Complete Third Season – Dying Family Man Reaches Tipping Point!

Breaking Bad S3

AMC’s Breaking Bad is the second cancer-related TV series to have a full season DVD set released this week. The series would seem, on the surface, to be about a terminally ill middle class guy trying to provide for his family after his death – through cooking up a unique version of crystal meth. Instead, it’s about how that basically decent man – a high school chemistry teacher who could have been much more – has a knack for making exactly the wrong decisions and is devolving from decency to hardcore criminal.

Justified: The Complete First Season – Elmore’s Lawman Sparks Terrific DVD Release!

Justified, S1

The story of Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens marks the first time that Elmore Leonard’s work has worked on television. Thanks to cable network FX, the series has been allowed to depict the quirkiness, humor and unexpected bursts violence of Leonard’s work – as well as his crackling dialogue. The first season DVD includes some excellent bonus material that goes into detail about that was done, making it well worth investigating if you’re a fan of great crime fiction and TV.

The Social Network Gets A Top Flight 2-Disc DVD Release!

socialnetwork

It’s a tale of sound and fury; friendship betrayed; money and the internet. The Social Network may be the story of how Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, but it has Shakespearean range and moves like a Jason Bourne movie. Directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin, the film is also practically littered with brilliant performances – and the DVD release gives them all their due.

Blu-ray – Michelle Selects the Best Blu-rays of 2009!!

It’s that time of the year where we all sit back and take stock on the year that just went by. I have to say this has been a pretty, ok year personally and professionally. Entertainment wise, I think it goes down as one of the worst years in a long time – bad movies, bad tv, and no-talent reality tv “stars” behaving badly. I’m going to look on the bright side and give you the best Blu-rays of the year. All are available in stores now, so this list also doubles as a Holiday buyer’s guide. With limited verbiage on my part and in no particular order here are the best Blu-ray’s of 2009.

Wizard of Oz 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collection

The Wizard of Oz Deluxe Set could have easily been the best Disk of 2009; it’s an absolutely gorgeous transfer for one of the greatest movies of all time. And this set is feature packed. Warner Home Video cheaped out in two ways 1) They included a horrible print of the Dreamer of Oz TV movie with John Ritter and 2) Most of the extras are in Standard Def. But there’s hours of good stuff wade through.
