We’ve got a trio of Blu-rays for you to enjoy today...

First up, Tim’s Halloween Hangover review is none other than Dan Curtis’ 1976 Burnt Offerings, now available on Blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

I’ve also posted a pair of Blu-ray reviews of my own looking atSony’s new The Fifth Element: Cinema Series and Léon: The Professional – Cinema Series. Both discs arrived in stores on Tuesday and are worth a look. Note that each title is available in deluxe “clear case” packaging and also regular Blu-ray cases. The regular versions are the exact same discs for less money – only the packaging is different. See the reviews for all the details.  [Read on here…]

First up today, Amazon.com is now taking pre-orders for Universal’s Jurassic World, street date TBA. Click here for that.

The big news is that Criterion has revealed their delightful slate of September titles, which is set to include Krzysztof Kieślowski’s Blind Chance (Cat #772 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 9/15, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom (Cat #776 – Blu-ray and DVD), and Bruce Beresford’s Breaker Morant (Cat #773 – Blu-ray and DVD) and Mister Johnson (Cat #774 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 9/22, and Leonard Kastle’s The Honeymoon Killers (Cat #200 – Blu-ray and DVD) and James Ivory’s A Room with a View (Cat #775 – Blu-ray and DVD) on 9/29. Blind Chance? Breaker Morant? Moonrise Kingdom? That just pleases me right down to the ground. By the way, fingers crossed we’ll get to see Kieślowski’s The Decalogue given Blu-ray treatment by Criterion one day. Anyway, you can find some of the cover artwork below.  [Read on here…]
