This week, stuffed amongst the new DVD & Blu-ray releases coming out in Tuesday, May 29th, 2012, include HBO’s vampires, men stuck on ledges and a few other classic TV series titles and movies that have come to Blu-ray.
But first up, from the sales week ending on May 19th, I see that many folk were waiting for The Grey with Liam Neeson to come out, as well as chronicle. Game of Thrones has also been in the top-10 list since it was released and a few Avenger character movies surged back into the top-10 since Joss Whedon’s The Avengers have been kicking butt at the box office.
- Grey, The
- Underworld: Awakening
- Vow, The
- One for the Money
- Captain America: The First Avenger
- Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
- Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season
Feel free to check out my reviews of The Grey, Chronicle, Underworld or the like by using the site search window with the ‘<movie title> review’ and you should find my older perspectives. Some of my newer reviews are in the side panel list about a third to half-way down the screen.
But on to our newest DVD and Blu-ray titles:
This is a very popular series on HBO and its headed into its fifth season, which premieres on HBO on June 10th.
Season Three – Volume Two Starring Campbell Scott
The [numbers] after the movie titles are the IMDb scores, x/10. It’s my way of referencing what others thought of the movie. For me, anything above 6 is acceptable. Above 7 gets pretty good to awesome. Obviously some adjustments need to be made if you’re a fan of a star who might be in a poorly scored movie and such. But this is more or less my recommendation . I think anything over a ’5.5′ is worthy of considering for rental, ’7′ for purchasing.
