Blu-ray Releases: July 19, 2011

Last week’s better-than-average listing of new Blu-ray releases made me a bit giddier than normal.  As a result I decided to have some fun with the list and test our readers.  Frequent PSNation commenter – way2easy – took my shenanigan-like trivia and was the first to respond with a correct answer.  Waytogo way2easy!

This week things seem to have taken a drastic slide back toward normalcy.  In other words, it’s a week of mostly pathetic titles.  Even the combined muscle-bound, action-packed adrenalin rush of Steven Segal and Jean Claude Van Damme can’t fight there way out of this funk of mediocrity.

Here are some of the releases for Tuesday, July 19, 2011:

  • Limitless (2011)
  • Amelie (2001)
  • Take Me Home Tonight (2011)
  • Doctor Who: Series Six Part One (2011)
  • Tekken (2010)
  • Beauty and the Beast (1946)
  • The Reef (2010)
  • Chocolat (2000)
  • Gungrave: The Complete Series (2003-2004)
  • Bridget Jones Diary (2001)
  • Nowhere To Run (1993)
  • Belly of the Beast (2003)
  • The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (2008)
  • Torchwood: The Complete Original UK Series (2006-2009)
  • Peep World (2010)
  • Hellraiser: Hellworld (2005)
  • Desert Flower (2009)

If, for nothing else, the inclusion of 2005’s Hellraiser: Hellworld has prompted me to investigate a title I didn’t realize existed.  Unfortunately the tagline – Evil Goes Online – doesn’t solidify my cause very much.  God, that sounds absolutely terrible!  Although a longtime fan of the Clive Barker original Cenobite movies (originating from the novella The Hellbound Heart) I’ll be the first to admit that the series should have concluded a long time ago.

All I can say at this point is . . . I’m sorry?
