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)

  • 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.
