Greetings movie lovers. This week's new release list is dedicated to our resident Marine bad-ass and all around great guy USMC Kato. Hopefully he will recover from his drunken stupor after two beers soon. *cough* lightweight *cough*.  icon_smile This week's recommended titles include:

The big release is, of course, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crap, er Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Personally, I HATED the movie, so I will pass on the DVD. However, a lot of people enjoyed it so no doubt it will sell a lot of copies. I'm sure the Blu-Ray version will look stunning.
The extended version of The New World is one I look forward to as I thought it was a visually stunning movie. It has some problems, most notably, it is a really sloooooow moving movie so some people may literally fall asleep on the couch watching it. I didn't and I found it to be a very well done pseudo-historical piece.
In Blu-Ray releases, American Gangster, Poltergeist and the Ultimate Matrix Collection are worthy titles of note. I loved American Gangster, but then again, I will watch anything directed by Ridley Scott. Poltergeist is a great blast from childhood past and scared the crap out of me when I first saw it oh those many years ago. As for the Matrix Collection, this is a tough call. The BD release is now the THIRD release of this set, after the original DVD and the HD-DVD release. So it is a potential triple dip for some people. I guess it depends on how big a Matrix fan you are. If you did not get the HD-DVD release, well it's definitely worth serious consideration to get the BD version for the excellent video transfers. Also, I believe this edition is the first time the Animatrix is in high-def. The HD-DVD edition only included the standard-def DVD of that title.

Here are the multi-version releases for the week. As is the case, make sure you select the version that is the "correct" one:

Holy crap, Quark: The Complete Series??

I'd pick it up but I'm not entirely sure how it holds up in this day and age.  When it originally ran, I was quite young.  I remember always laughing at the show, but I'm old now.   icon_frown

Indy on BD for me. Should be getting it for $23.99 at Fred Meyer with price matching and a coupon.

I loved The New World, wonder what the extended cut adds.

The only thing I could find is that the extended cut is 30 minutes longer. The director Terence Malick was forced by the studio to cut it down to 135 minutes, so this is probably the version the director originally envisioned. One bad thing is that the original DVD release had a pretty comprehensive documentary about the making of the movie. The new extended DVD apparently does not have that feature.
