Blu-ray Releases: June 14, 2011

I’m not sure what it was like for you during the E3 event last week but I can guarantee that we here at PSNation were incredibly busy bringing you all the hottest news, rumors and impressions – I hope you enjoyed it.  It was great to see E3 continue to evolve into the event that it so richly deserves but I for one am ready for a break.  Short of actually playing some games, as opposed to watching or writing about them, I can think of no better way to “relax” than with a 2-3 hour suspension of disbelief.

Here are some of the releases for Tuesday, June 14, 2011:

  • Battle Los Angeles (2011)
  • Red Riding Hood (2011)
  • Hall Pass (2011)
  • Kill the Irishman (2011)
  • Supernatural: The Complete 2nd Season (2006-2007)
  • Haven: The Complete 1st Season (2010)
  • Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen (2010)
  • The Cincinnati Kid (1965)
  • Insignificance (1985)
  • The Image (1975)
  • Big Momma’s House: Like Father Like Son (2011)
  • Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
  • Point Break (1991)
  • Rubber (2010)
  • N-Secure (2010)
  • The Boondock Saints (1999)

  • Jackass 3.5 (2011)
  • Earnest Scared Stupid (1991)

Although I don’t feel there are any must-haves this week, there are a number of titles that have caught my eye – interestingly, not because the movie is or looks any good.

Here’s a good example – Red Riding Hood looks like a clone of the Twilight movies; and you’d have to prop my eyes open like A Clockwork Orange to watch any of those.  But because it has the beautiful Amanda Seyfried I can’t help but be interested.  Seriously, have you seen her in the movie Chloe?

Next up we’ve got a little movie called Battle Los Angeles.  Sure, I saw this movie in the theater.  It wasn’t half bad but I also didn’t think it was half good either.  However, the Blu-ray disc is advertising early access to the Resistance 3 beta.  If that doesn’t pique your interest I’m not sure why you’re logging into a gaming website.

Finally, there’s Point Break.  Yes, this movie was absolutely ridiculous.  Yes, Keanu Reeves is incapable of acting his way out of a cardboard box.    And yes – God Yes! – it includes the over-the-top acting of Gary Busey.  Still, for reasons I cannot quite comprehend, I’m drawn to this movie – like an unemployed surfer to a righteous wave.  Then again, similar to another Patrick Swayze movie that graced an earlier version of the PSNation Blu-ray release schedule, it is absolutely ripe with memorable movie quotes.

The choice is all yours.

  • I wonder if the BD comes with the Demo.  I actually enjoyed the movie, so I may pick it up anyway.  I’ll let you guys know.

    I heard that Battle Los Angeles is better on tv because of the shaking camera.  I’m looking forward to that.

  • So I saw Battle Los Angeles again without the influence of Hollywood and expensive hotels priming me to give the film a decent review… Sorry Bill. I still like the flick – quite a bit more after seeing it this second time. It’s everything these modern alien invasion flicks aren’t. It’s a kickass WAR FLICK.

      Don’t get me wrong.  I was entertained when I saw Battle LA – but not much more than that.  The overused cliches were what really prevented me from truly enjoying it more.  To me that just shows  lack of creativity in the screen writing department.  I’m certain I’ll at least give this a rental.  Who knows, maybe my impressions of the movie will change for the better the second time around.

    I usually like all SciFi-movies, but Battle Los Angeles were a really bad movie.. 
    The effects seemed like it were made during the 70’s.
    Were concidering turning off the movie, when a Ninja-chick appeared, and somewhat made the rest of the movie 
    worth watching.

    It might be worth getting for Resistance 3 demo, but the movie weren’t good, here is a much better lowbudget sci-fi war- movie, wich also is funny.
    (Yes, it’s free for real)

    their next project look even more awesome.
