Buy A Blu-Ray A Week – USA

Blu-Ray’s To BUY

Drive – Well what can I say about this film? It was my second favourite film of 2011 so its obvious that I love this film. Not everyone who watches this film will love it; some will complain about the unnecessary violence and gore and others will just not get the grasp of it pure brilliance. This film stars Ryan Gosling and Albert Brooks both at their best and it is a shock to me that Drive didn’t get a best picture nomination at the Academy Awards. If you are not one for violence then I wouldn’t recommend this but if you enjoy good quality movies then this is one for you to pick up this week.

Blu-rays To AVOID

The Thing (2011) – This is the terrible 2011 prequel not the amazing original, this is a movie that if you loved the original you should not go anywhere near this piece of garbage. It is like the makers of this film knew it was going to be awful so they just completely overloaded the whole films with unnecessary GCI. Once you have watched this film it really isn’t hard to forget about it, it really doesn’t stick in your mind. I would probably watch this if it was on Netflix but would not rent of buy it.

In Time – This has to be one of my biggest disappointments of the year, this had the potential to be great, with Justin Timberlake and Cillian Murphy instead it was a massive flop. I hated this movie with a passion, the story could have been so amazing, the concept was great but they just executed it extremely poorly. The only time I would watch this movie again is if it is the only thing that is on the television. Please listen to me don’t waste you precious dollars on this pile of manure.

All of these blu-rays are released on 31st January 2012

Buy A Blu-Ray A Week – UK

This week there aren’t any blu-rays to avoid so I will just be listing blu-rays to buy this week.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – This is a fantastic film with phenomenal performances throughout from the brilliant Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and so many more. The storyline of this film is a little complex and you could find your self getting a bit lost but its still not a complex as inception the first time round. The film is also quite slow, I think that you need to be quite interested in British spies to really appreciate the pure quality of this movie. But it really is a great shame that is one of many films that has been completely snubbed by the Academy Awards. 

Drive – Well what can I say about this film? It was my second favourite film of 2011 so its obvious that I love this film. Not everyone who watches this film will love it; some will complain about the unnecessary violence and gore and others will just not get the grasp of it pure brilliance. This film stars Ryan Gosling and Albert Brooks both at their best and it is a shock to me that Drive didn’t get a best picture nomination at the Academy Awards. If you are not one for violence then I wouldn’t recommend this but if you enjoy good quality movies then this is one for you to pick up this week.

Crazy, Stupid, Love – I absolutely loved this movie and it was very close to making it into my top 11 movies of 2011 but it didn’t quite make it. Again another great film staring the sensational Ryan Gosling and he is joined by Steve Carell, Emma Stone and Julianne Moore. This is a hilarious rom-com that guys will love as well;  this is a great buy for anyone into comedies and I definitely recommend you picking this one up.

All of these blu-rays are released on Monday 30th January.
