Today on Blu-ray - December 9th

Show all Blu-ray releases this week

Batman is not your typical superhero. He has no special powers, didn't mutate during a freak accident, and didn't travel from any distant planet. He is as human as you or me. But what he lacks in uniqueness, he makes up for with gadgets and a consuming desire to protect those who can not protect themselves. It is these qualities which propelled 'The Dark Knight' to record-breaking success.

The most recent Nolan/Bale Batman is only the latest iteration of the popular character, having already survived the "Pow", "Zing" character portrayed by Adam West and the curiously large-nippled character directed by Schumacher. While there were successes on the way - namely Tim Burton's Batman - none were as successful as the current Bat. With the film about to cross the $1 Billion line (and it will when Warner re-releases the film this January), it is not only the most successful in the series, but also one of the most successful films ever.

Today's Blu-ray release of 'The Dark Knight' has already broken Blu-ray records even before it was released, shipping record numbers to retailers in preparation for overwhelming demand. In the UK, where the disc was released yesterday, it broke one-day Blu-ray sales records by surpassing 100K units sold. The industry has high hopes for this release to drive Blu-ray players into homes, and it looks like that is exactly what is going to happen.

There are also some other notable Blu-ray releases which are coming out today. Fox is releasing the animated tale 'Horton Hears a Who' which stars Jim Carrey and Steve Carrell in the Dr. Seuss classic. And you can't have a new release without catalog titles to ride on its success, so Warner today releases Carrey's 'The Mask' and 'Dumb and Dumber' today as well.

Fox also today releases two comedies which have devout followings. Both 'Dodgeball' and 'Super Troopers' may not have had the same box office success as the "masked crusader", but there is a deeply loyal group of viewers who love these films. I am happy to say that I am one of them.

Universal today releases Jet Li's last martial arts film, which fittingly enough, tells the story of one of China's premiere martial artists. The Blu-ray release of 'Fearless' actually contains three separate cuts of the film, which in my opinion is an excellent use of the seamless branching feature of Blu-ray. The video is excellent, and the audio is pounding. The fight scenes really are stunning, and a treat to watch.

And finally today, Disney releases 'Lost: The Complete Fourth Season' on Blu-ray. Still widely popular in its fourth season, fans are sure to pick up this set in order to prepare themselves for the upcoming fifth season.

Obviously bought the Dark Knight today because I'm a human being with a beating heart... I also plan to pick up Dumb & Dumber, Super Troopers and Dodgeball after the holidays when I'm less broke.

Every decade has it's own defining motion picture. 1980s was E.T. The 1990s was Titanic, now 2000s is The Dark Knight.

BTW this BD is AWESOME!

Fearless and TDK for me. I had Horton Hears A Who in hand, but put it back on the shelf. Really didn't need it, and thought I'd wait a bit for the price to go down. I'm still occasionally in "sticker shock" over the cost of new Blu-ray releases.

TDK and Horton! Horton is so awesome! One of the funniest movies I've seen in years. And my parents have seen TDK and I have a final in the morning...so TDK sadly sits in front of my TV until tomorrow night. I can't wait to see it for the 4th time!!!

Sorry, but I'm one of those not buying TDK. There must have been 300 copies of this at my local Wal-Mart. It'll be on everyone else's shelf, so I don't need it on mine. I would be more interested in Burton's BATMAN when it finally hits BD, or even BATMAN FOREVER...that gleaming, colorful, oscar-nominated cinematopraphy should look tremendous in hi-def. Call me nuts, but TDK just wasn't my idea of a fun film. And I'm still bothered by the marketing of the release which was in bad taste in light of Ledger's death. There was a time when that kind of crass marketing would have been avoided. It's all about the dollar now.

Picked up TDK at Target while I was on lunch. I just wish Dr. Strangelove had not been postponed so I could have had 2 movies to watch tonight.

I just bought the DARK KNIGHT!! As happy as I am of having my own copy, I still get this feeling that WARNER is going to pull the rug right from under us. There's a lot of content I felt they have not included in this package. Deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, process of selecting a cast for the Joker and Two-Face, why Nolan chose Heath Ledger. Don't let this current release fool anyone. Yes, we have BD-Live capability, hours of Special Features, and a Digital copy of the movie, but let's get real here. A movie that made over $500 mil and was the number 1 movie of the 21st century in terms of Box Office numbers/sales getting such little content? Believe me, I have a good feeling this ain't the real release. But nonetheless I'm happy I at least got the movie on hi-def and digital copy on my i-Pod for my holiday travels. Thank you WARNER!!

I will only buy this disc when it's on offer. Cannot see the point in spending more money than I need to. There is no reason to have this disc the moment it hits the shelves.

My copy of TDK is arriving today here at my work from Amazon.com. I was gonna order the limited edition that comes with a BatPod but it is expensive so I just have to settle with the 2-disc Blu Ray with Digital Copy edition. The BatPod for me is just a nice to have, not a necessity.

I am not one of the excited fans of this new batman...I expected more of the first movie than what it actually brought, so I don't expect much of this one. I guess I got carried away by fans' talk. The first was a movie you could live without. I'll give this one a rent. And judge FOR MYSELF before thinking of buying anymore batman.

TDK should have been filmed all in IMAX. the IMAX parts of the film are FANTASTIC! sadly the sound was way too light.
