Weekly Digital Disc Picks – August 4, 2009

Though not as stellar as the past few weeks, it’s certainly not bad.

First, the DVD picks:

Now, the Blu-Ray picks:

Finally, the picks of the week. Alex says, “If you’ve got Blu-Ray, get Big Trouble In Little China – particularly if you don’t own a copy yet. If you don’t have a Blu-Ray player, I’d recommend picking up Slayers Seasons 1-3. Season 4 recently was licenced and the English release is currently in production.” Blaine says, “If you’ve got Blu-Ray, I recommend My Cousin Vinny. If you don’t have Blu-Ray, pick up something that didn’t fit in the budget that was released on the 21st or 28th instead.”

  1. Oh crap! I can’t believe I missed that!

    I am now changing my pick of the week to “The Shape of the World”. It’s a pretty interesting documentary on map-making from the early 90s (so, alas, it’s dated in certain respects) done by Grenada TV, the BBC, and PBS, featuring Patrick Stewart. I’ve had a VHS tape of it for quite some time, but the tape is old and getting worn out. So, as soon as I get the money, I will be getting that.

    (Alas, this isn’t the first time I missed an awesome documentary that got a DVD release. I also missed The Day The Universe Changed when it got a DVD release as well.

  2. The original “The Italian Job” is fantastic. If I didn’t have it on DVD I’d be picking that up on Blu-Ray.

  3. If you’re one of the few people out there who hasn’t seen Big Trouble in Little China, I feel happy that you’ll be able to view Kurt Russel’s awesomeness in HD. Lo Pan might be one of the best pulp villains ever to grace the screen, plus, hey, early Kim Cattrall?

    • Big Trouble is one of those films that shouldn’t be as good as it is.

      I can’t give much of a recommendation to Quackbusters, however, one of those Warner Brothers Frankenfilms stitched together from old cartoons. The old cartoons work better on their own, in their complete form.
