Another week, another set of releases.
I’m going to start off with the anticipated release of The Expendables 2 (starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris and many more). I haven’t seen this, nor the first one for that matter. I’m not really into these style movies, but I must admit, I really want to check this second one out; looks like they had more fun with it and where more lighthearted about the entire idea.
Have any of you see it (or the first)? Opinions?
The next big one of the week is an amazing collection of Quentin Tarantino films: Tarantino XX. I consider one of my top 5 Directors, so if I didn’t already own all his movies, I would consider this a MUST. The Collection includes, Pulp Fiction (which is one of my top 5 all times favorite films), Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill (Vol. 1 & 2), Jackie Brown, Death Proof and True Romance; set also includes 2 discs of over 5 hours of bonus material!
Unfortunately, those were the 2 highlights of the week (though at least they were good ones at that). Other releases include the 2 movie set of Cinderella 2 and 3 (I would have considered it a highlight if it was the first one, as that can at least be said to be a classic, but 2 and 3? “Return of the Missing Glass Slipper? Revenge of the Pumpkin Carriage? Come On!).
Heaven’s Gate (Criterion Collection) gets release on Blu-Ray, as does another Christmas movie, Santa Paws 2 and some film called Ramrod.
In television we get a collectors edition of Game of Thrones season 1 (if you have not seen this show, WATCH IT NOW! It is literally one of the best shows on TV).
That’s it for the week. See anything you’re planning on getting?
