New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Drive Angry You Biutiful Man

View Chris Kavan's Profile

After a long holiday weekend, you may as well settle down by watching some new movies.

1) Now, Nicholas Cage isn't known for making the greatest choices when it comes to choosing roles. I'm guessing Drive Angry is not going to be as bad as Wicker Man or Bangkok Dangerous but will fall somewhat short of Face/Off or Con Air. Anyway, if mindless action is what you crave then Drive Angry should be your top film pick for the week.

2) On to a more sobering drama: what happens when you're a bad man trying to do good things in an uncompromising world? Oh, and who happens to be able to speak to the dead and is dying of cancer. Welcome to Biutiful where Javier Bardem is that man. I'm guessing he delivers a knockout performance, but man, does the movie ever sound depressing.

3) All the rest of the notable films this week come courtesy of Blu-Ray. Leading the pack is one of my favorites westerns: Once Upon a Time in the West. Why? Because Henry Fonda plays the BAD guy - oh, and it features a great score and a riveting story. Aside from the Man with No Name Trilogy, it's my favorite.

Fans of the 80s (and Tom Cruise) can once again bolster their collection with the release of the fantasy/adventure Legend (Ultimate Edition). While I was always partial to movies like Dark Crystal myself, this is one of those films that will benefit greatly from sharper graphics.

I would also be remiss if I didn't mention the classic (non-Star Wars) George Lucas film American Graffiti. Featuring classic cars, along with a classic soundtrack, and some future stars (including a pre-Star Wars and Indiana Jones Harrison Ford), this is Americana at its finest.

Finally, if you like exclusives, Amazon has a deal for the Stanley Kubrick fan: although available in a box set, for those who already have some of the films, three are being released as single films: Lolita, Barry Lyndon and A Clockwork Orange (Anniversary Edition). Here is a chance to round out your collection.

There are plenty of other films to explore this week. Just visit the FilmCrave New DVD Releases and FilmCrave New Blu-Ray Releases pages today.
