In my “blogging break” I managed to pick up a bunch of pretty good Blu-rays, both in terms of audio/video quality as well as film-making quality. No-questions-asked classics such as Citizen Kane, Psycho and Singin’ in the Rain I have not even watched before (can you believe it?) So what better way to enjoy these critically acclaimed films than in stunning remastered FULL HD!
I also watched the Best Picture winning The Artist for the first time on Blu-ray (which also happens to be my first SILENT film) and wow, this film really proves that story and characters are still what makes movies great. And then there are the films which certain demographics consider classics of their own. The Hunger Games might have made you giddy with all its excessive shaky cam, but this post-apocalyptic story is no doubt unique and captivating.
Marvel’s The Avengers is the unstoppable superhero smackdown that proves superheroes are still hot everywhere they go. Oh how I love the scene where Bruce Banner turns into The Hulk at will. I also picked up the animated Batman flick The Dark Knight Returns:Part 1 on DVD, which comes with a cute little action figure. If you are interested enough, I recommend reading The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel as well!
