Blu-ray new releases for this week of February 25, 2013
This week we have quite a few interesting titles being released on Blu-ray. From Barbie to Silent Hill 3D, there's a bit of something for everyone and we're guessing there's at least one title on this list that you'd like to own. No, this week isn't at exciting as last week, but hey - it's the end of the month, and a short month at that, so let's make due with what we've got. There are over 40 new releases on Blu-ray this week (which you can see in the list below) and while we'd love to do a write up on each, that'd be a bit excessive. We will however, mention a few of the ones that caught our eye.
On the 26th, the quirky and quite controversial Holy Motors will be released. Some say it defies explanation, others say it's utterly hilarious and inspiring. We say you should watch it and then make your own judgements. The film is actually very unique and bizarre, offering a nice change of pace from the typical and predictable movies that have came out as of late. It is most definitely a must see for any true fan of cinema.
Also being released on the 26th is 500 MPH Storm, brought to you by Indy Entertainment Studios. If you like thrillers and disaster films, this one should right up your alley. When a weather experiment goes bad, a rash of massive hurricanes tear through North America. Even worse, the hurricanes are about to merge together into a "hypercane" that threatens the whole continent and everyone living within. Kind of scary, but we can't think of a better way to watch this one than in the comfort of your home in high-quality Blu-ray HD.
For horror fans, this week offers up Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Zombie Lake, Oasis of the Zombies, and the incredibly low-rated Girls against Boys. Nothing too exciting in the horror area aside from Silent Hill.
There's quite a few retro releases that might interest classic movie fans such as The Red Menace (1949), Monsieur Gangster (1963), She Devil (1957), The Diary of a Chambermaid (1946) and Strangers in the Night from 1944.
On the kid's list for the week it looks like we've got Barbie, Scooby-Doo's Mask of the Blue Faclon, and Africa. Yipee!
The complete list for this week is right here:
