This Week in DVD & Bluray (04-06-10)

April 6, 2010

It’s a barren wasteland of DVD and Bluray releases this week.  There are a couple goodies in the mix, but overall a tough week if you rely heavily on DVDs for entertainment.  One new release and one Bluray re-issue set will dominate the rental shelves this week.  If you feel like being adventurous, there are plenty of other lesser releases to choose from as well.  Enjoy!


The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009) – DVD & Bluray – Werner Herzog directs a cousin-project to Abel Ferrara’s 1992 “Bad Lieutenant”, but this time it’s in New Orleans and stars a drugged-up Nicolas Cage.  Cage plays a crooked detective who is a drug and gambling addict, all while he investigates the murder of 5 immigrants in this post-Katrina setting.  For an interesting twist on a traditional cop-drama, definitely watch this film.  Ebert ranked this movie among his favorite of the DECADE. Think he’s crazy?  You be the judge.


The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy – Bluray – One boxed Bluray set to rule them all… that is, until the director’s cut Bluray package comes out next year.  When will New Line stop releasing “Lord of the Rings” sets??  When you stop buying them.  If you are a big fan of the trilogy, I would definitely recommend renting these, and holding off purchasing until the bigger director’s cut release in 2011.
