Blu-ray Releases: November 8, 2011

Alright kids, we’re a few days late but we’ve got a huge list on releases coming next week. I’m no Bill, but I’ll do my best.

Buried in this massive release list are quite a few great titles, but it begins and ends with The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. I mean come on, you’ve got Robert Rodriguez, a big budget and a script written by…. his kid? Okay, maybe not so much that one, but we have Cannonball Run to get you geared up for Need for Speed: The Run. Not since It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World has such a massive and hilarious ensemble cast come together for so much fun. My other big one would be Kevin Smith: Too Fat For 40, which was filmed in Red Bank, New Jersey on his 40th birthday. Say what you will about his film making, but the man can tell a story.

The releases for November 8th include:

We also have a few releases later in the week so for November 11, 2011:

  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (Combo Pack) (Warner Brothers)
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 (Movie Only Edition) (Warner Brothers)
  • Harry Potter: The Complete 8-Film Collection (Warner Brothers)
  • Nova: Fabric of the Cosmos (PBS)

Now normally I’d say get the Harry Potter film but Warner Brothers decided not to release the 3D version yet. My understanding is that the 3D wasn’t well utilized in the movie anyway but I’d rather have the option than not.

What’s everybody else looking forward to?
