This Week in Blu – Week of November 1st, 2010

This week in Blu: Flying cars are all the rage, Buzz and Woody fight back against tyrannical children, Connor MacLeod tries not to lose his head and if you find yourself crossing a bridge with a  group of soldiers whistling…run.

It’s the weekend and that means it’s time to pick up a weekend movie. I almost want to call this “classics week.” There are only a few “new” releases with the headline titles all being classics. If you find it hard to catch up on the titles of yesteryear,  a week like this is a good time for it. Also of note for the collectors out there is The Sound of Music has three different releases this week one of which is a digibook, The Bridge on the River Kwai has a nice collector set and the Toy Story Trilogy: Ultimate Toy Box Collection looks to be a nice set as well.

What I’m watching:

Buzz and Woody are like Tango and Cash, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot,Rambo and Troutman. Even though it’s not the best of the trilogy, it’s a feel good movie and fun for the family.

Long before Sir Alec Guinness was a Jedi, he starred in one of the best World War II films ever made. It’s long, tragic, has an all-star cast and is part of modern cinema. While you may have never seen it, I’m sure the theme song has played over and over in your head even if you didn’t know where it was from.
