What's New on Blu?

Whether you rent or buy movies, Blu-ray offers the ultimate in sight and sound. Streaming is convenient, but if you plan on watching the movie more than once, you need Blu. So, What’s New On Blu? you ask. Well, good, bad or indifferent, Go,See,Talk offers up a trio of titles that are being released each week. Check out what’s hitting the shelves this week…

A former elite agent takes on a two-tier mission: rescue a Chinese girl who has been abducted by the Triads, then use a highly desired safe combination to outwit the Russian Mafia, corrupt NYC officials, and the Triads themselves.  Jason Statham flicks used to be exciting, but lately they’ve become very much the same.  Then SAFE comes along and it is a refreshing change of pace.  This film has a back-story, plot and does not rely solely on fight scenes and killing people for entertainment.  I plan on picking up my copy of SAFE on release day.

Blu-ray Release Date (U.S.):  Tuesday, September 4, 2012.

Sixteen Candles lands on Blu-ray for the first time, as part of Universal’s 100th Anniversary list of iconic films.  It’s Samantha Baker’s sweet sixteen birthday and no one in her family remembers the occasion. She’s a typical teen, enduring creepy freshman, spoiled siblings, confused parents and the Big Blonde on campus who stands between her and the boy of her dreams.

    I do like Stathem’s movies for the action and entertainment. Not so much of the plot. Sixteen Candles is out too? I haven’t seen that one in years, but for the price tag, it’s kind of hard to afford to buy it right now. I did however add it to my Blockbuster@Home queue. I found out about Blockbuster because a co-worker of mine at Dish pointed out to me that it’s better to rent movies for a flat monthly fee instead of buying them. It saves a ton of money in the long run.
