Blu-ray Releases: February 8, 2011

What’s your flavor for this week?  Timeless comedies or a slew of B-rate movies.  There’s also a number of semi-entertaining Nicolas Cage movies.  Oh wait, did I just use the word entertaining to describe Nicolas Cage – my bad.

Here are some of the releases for Tuesday February 8, 2011:

  • I Spit on Your Grave (1978)
  • I Spit on Your Grave (2010)
  • Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)
  • Thelma & Louise: 20th Anniversary (1991)
  • Uncle Buck (1989)
  • My Soul to Take (2010)
  • Barb Wire (1996)
  • Flipper (1996)
  • Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008)

  • Ong Bak 3: The Final Battle (2010)
  • Middle Men (2009)
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) **releases on February 11, 2011**

My pick of the week is an easy one.  John Candy’s performance in Uncle Buck is an incredible reminder of how much of a comedic genius he was.  His death in 1994, just 5 years after his performance as Uncle Buck, is one that I continue to mourn.  Much like the tragic death of Chris Farley, Mr. Candy was taken too soon and his style of comedy will forever be missed.
