Philip Noyce may not hold the same level of name recognition as elite action directors like Michael Bay or Christopher Nolan, but he has managed to work with some of Hollywood's most well known action stars. For his latest, and most complete, action film Salt, Noyce enlisted the audience-drawing power of Angelina Jolie who continues to prove that even though motherhood is her primary job, kicking butt is still well within her capabilities. Be sure to pick up Salt on Blu-ray today.
Staff reviewer Martin Liebman commented in his Blu-ray review of Salt, "Phillip Noyce's latest picture is easily his finest, not only showcasing top-rate action scenes that are some of the best around, but telling a story that's as engaging and surprising as longtime genre fans could want." He continues, "Sony has once again turned in a first-class effort, this time with Salt; the Blu-ray disc features top-quality video and audio alongside a strong array of bonus features."
Family Guy is a geekapolooza of obscure references and quotes, so it was with little surprise that Seth MacFarlane would choose to take his aim at one of the most referenced and quoted trilogies of all time, Star Wars. For the Laugh It Up, Fuzzball: The Family Guy Trilogy Blu-ray release, Fox compiled all three "episodes" into one budget priced box set which includes the Blu-ray release of Blue Harvest, which is not currently available on Blu-ray as an individual release.
As Michael Douglas continues his treatment for advanced throat cancer, we hope that today's Blu-ray release of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps isn't the last time we see his star power on film. Not only because of the amazing work Douglas has accomplished during his storied career, but also because with a "Rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it's not the way we want to see him go out.
On a more personal note, I hope all our readers are having a wonderful holiday season. I know its been a rough year for many people across the globe, and I still believe that film is the best (and safest) temporary escape from an otherwise sobering reality. As you and yours come together to celebrate and share of movie, please remember that a little charity goes a long way. Be safe, be happy, and we'll see you next week!
I might have had some interest in Wall Street II if a.) anyone other than Shia LaDOOF was in it and b.) it didn't have that awful "Money Never Sleeps" subtitle. Money Never Sleeps? That sounds like something Steven Segal or Wesley Snipes would be in.
Futurama and Laugh It Up, Fuzzball this week and FINALLY, after months of non-stop purchasing, there's nothing on the horizon for the foreseeable future! It's been an expensive few months for me. Love to the blu-rays, but papa gotta eat, you know? Looking forward to what 2011 will bring, but enjoying the wallet vacation in the meantime.
I didn't really enjoy Salt. I was the type of movie you watch on cable. Anyway, I still think Inception will still be #1 in next week's blu-ray sales, just like it did in theaters. Salt will never be #1
Salt and Star Wars Family guy for me, the latter is more for the Star Wars and not so much the Family Guy. I'll wait for Futurama to drop in price as well as Matador and Wallstreet. I'm finally getting it through my thick skull that patience will save me money. I'm seeing an awful lot of blu's that I paid $20 for going for $7.
Got Salt in the steel case. It was my fav of the summer movies. Watched the extended cut and was very surprised how different it was. Prefer the theatrical version but the extended stands nicely on its own.
Is 'Easy A' worth a blind buy? I have read tons of positive things -including the above posts- about it and am a big fan of 'Mean Girls' (not sure why the analogy). I missed 'Easy A' in theatres and am considering blind buying the Blu-ray. Advice anyone?
