New this week on DVD and Blu-ray: Pixar’s Up flies to new heights as an old man journeys to South America with one young stowaway; Gerrard Butler and Katherine Heigl star in the comedy The Ugly Truth; and Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut delivers a whole new cut of the epic film for rabid fans. I also take a look at G.I. Joe A Real American Hero, the complete collection; plus Logan’s Run and Heat debut on Blu-ray.
“Best. Ever.” is a weekly conglomeration of things that made my week. And there was much rejoicing.
Opening this week, Zack Snyder gift wraps the monumental Watchmen graphic novel in celluloid for the legion of fans who having been buzzing about it for the last year. Also opening, Joshua Jackson stars in the Canadian drama One Week.
Tonight was a big night for me. I screened what I can only call the first really big release of the year – namely Zack Snyder‘s Watchmen.
While I’m still figuring out exactly how I felt about the film, it’s safe to say that I really did enjoy it. It’s going to be a big release, although it’s maybe not the kind of comic book movie some people will expect, if they don’t know the source material.
