Blu-ray Releases: December 27, 2011

Well, now this is ironic. Fellow PS Nation member, Jason, just had an exclusive interview with Gary Oldman for another website and now I see the wonderfully gifted actor represented on this week’s Blu-ray list. Yeah, I’m a huge fan of Mr. Oldman.

There are many movies that I would refer to as “classic” when discussing Gary Oldman and this movie is on that list. Can you spot the film I might be referring to below? Consider that a segue.

• 2012 Zombie Apocalypse (Asylum)
• Apollo 18 (Starz/Anchor Bay)
• Archer: The Complete Season Two (20th Century Fox)
• The Borgias: The Complete First Season (Paramount)
• Buck (IFC Films)
• City Under Siege (FUNimation)
• The Double (Image)
• Eden of the East: The Complete Series (FUNimation)
• Fairy Tail: Part 2 (FUNimation)
• Final Destination 5 (Warner Brothers)
• Hostel: Part III (Sony)
• In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds (20th Century Fox)
• Nine Months (Starz/Anchor Bay)
• The Pool Boys (One)
• Shameless: The Complete First Season (Showtime)
• Sid and Nancy (MGM/UA)
• Slayers: Season 4 and 5 (FUNimation)
• Zombie Apocalypse (The Asylum)

Of course I’m talking about Sid and Nancy. Gary Oldman plays the famous punk rocker, Sid Vicious, in this classic tale of punk rock and wreckless lifestyles. A cult classic, Sid and Nancy captures the mood of the punk movement during the late 70’s/early 80’s quite accurately while also telling one of rock’s most depressing stories.

Highly recommended and an easy pick of the week.
