This Week in DVD & Bluray (04-27-10)

April 26, 2010

Though not as amazing as last week, this week is a pretty solid DVD and Bluray week!  A nice mixture of new releases, re-issues and new-to-Bluray releases should make for a great week of home viewing during this nasty storm week (if you’re in Chicago, that is).  Enjoy!

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus – DVD & Bluray

Acquired taste director Terry Gilliam’s most recent film also serves as actor Heath Ledger’s final film.  Though Ledger passed away in the middle of the shooting schedule for this film, several other actors pitched in to bring “Imaginarium” to a conclusion.  See Heath Ledger, Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Colin Farrell all play the same character in this whimsical modern-day fairy tale.

It’s Complicated – DVD & Bluray

Meryl Streep plays self-sufficient Jane, mother of three adult children and successful owner of her own Santa Barbara bakery.  After ten years of divorce and freedom from Jake (Alec Baldwin) she is just starting to take an interest in a guy, Adam (Steve Martin), her architect.  Only thing is,  Jake, now married to a woman young enough to be his daughter, is interested in Jane again, when they all get together for their son’s college graduation.  Is there anything to rekingle with Jake or should she seek something new with Adam? That’s right, folks…..It’s Complicated! Nancy Meyer is back with her genre niche of over-privileged people with problems.
