Blu-ray Releases: May 17, 2011

I’m honestly not sure where to go with this one.  In weeks past there was always something to either get excited about or blatantly make fun of.  This week, I feel like Nietzsche looking into the abyss as it looks back.  It just seems so . . .  empty.  I suppose, that which is entertaining is in the eye of the beholder.

With that said, here are some of the releases for Tuesday, May 17, 2011:

  • The Mechanic (2011)
  • The Rite (2011)
  • Thor: Tales of Asgard (2009)
  • The Roommate (2011)
  • The Other Woman (2009)
  • Deep Red (1975)
  • Beverly Hills Cop (1984)
  • Diabolique (1955)
  • Vanishing on 7th Street (2010)
  • Elephant White (2011)
  • Money Train (1995)
  • Jagged Edge (1985)
  • Daydream Nation (2010)
  • Sunflower (1970)
  • I Want Your Money (2011)

Making my weekly pick is fairly difficult this time around.  I have a DVR recording of Vanishing on 7th Street from an early preview that aired on HDNet Movies about a month ago.  The trailers looked good anyway.  There’s always Jagged Edge – was Glenn Close supposed to be sexy in that movie?  Ok, if I absolutely have to make a pick this week it’s gonna be The Mechanic.  I realize it’s a remake (and I generally loathe remakes) but it does include one of the most underrated actors working today – Ben Foster (30 Days of Night, Alpha Dog, Pandorum).
