This Week on DVD & Blu-ray (11-06-12)

November 6, 2012
It’s Election Day! But, don’t tell this list, cuz Christmas is here! That’s right. This is the week that the Christmas releases are hitting the shelves – or clogging the internet – however you wanna wrap it! No surprise, I guess, since all the holiday music, decorations and merchandise were in full force a day after Halloween. Now that’s scary! While there are wonderful Christmas movies like Aardman Animation’s “Arthur Christmas” and “The Muppets Christmas Carol” (has it really been 20 years?), there’s also a pretty strong selection of non-holiday titles to choose from. 
Oh look! There is one classic Thanksgiving movie in the bunch, John Hughes’ “Planes, Trains and Automobiles”, celebrating 25 yrs! Sigh. Old. If you haven’t had your recent fill of horror flicks, there’s “[REC] 3: Genesis”, which I heard is pretty crazy but diverges from the awesomeness of the first two films. There’s some drama with Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson and Josh Duhamel called “Fire with Fire” out this week! Not sure what to think of it, especially since it never made it’s way into theaters (Willis has had a handful of those lately) but see for yourself in the trailer below.
Other noteworthy releases out this week: the Criterion Blu-ray of Akira Kurosawa’s “Rashomon” is a must own! Just look at that awesome new cover. Another classic, is Billy Wilder’s “Sunset Boulevard” which should look great on Blu-ray! The other big/recent release is “The Amazing Spider-Man”, which comes out this Friday here in the State in a variety of formats!
