New DVD and Blu-Ray Releases to Crave This Week: Can't Stop Waiting for Superman

View Chris Kavan's Profile

By Chris Kavan - 02/15/11 at 10:59 AM CT

While there are two pretty good new releases this week, the real deal is the avalanche of Blu-Ray releases to be excited about.

1) Still, if you're pining for action (ha ha - I made a funny), you might as well start with Unstoppable. While I thought the idea sounded a bit cheesy, it made plenty of bank at the box office and would probably be a good choice for a quiet day inside. At least it will ward off the monotony for awhile.

2) On the other hand, you have a highly-regarded documentary in the form of Waiting for Superman . It casts a critical eye at the current education system and probably does a fair bit explaining why we're lagging behind as the rest of the world begins to pass us by.

3) Now onto the big Blu-Ray blitz. There are quite a few to choose from, but here are the best bets as I see them: First up, you have the classic pairing of Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. While I won't claim it's my favorite film, it is a good one - it manages to balance the comedy with the drama very well and treats a delicate subject with a lot of respect.

4) As a journalist at heart, I always take interest in the media - especially when it's getting skewered. One the best, even after all this time, is Network. Featuring strong performances and an unforgettable story, it really hits close to home, even in this day and age - maybe ever more so.

5) As a more down-to-earth approach to journalism, you also have All the President's Men based on Woodward and Bernstein, the two Washington Post reporters who broke the story on Watergate and Nixon's eventual resignation. It doesn't get much more hard hitting than that.

The rest of Blu-Ray lineup is strong, including Cher in her most well-known role in Moonstruck and the steamy passion of... Marlon Brando!? in Last Tango in Paris.
