Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-ray - Not surprisingly the reviews for this Blu-ray package have been strong. Yes Lucas has made even more alterations to the film in his ongoing attempt to link the trilogies together and make them feel like they weren't made 30 years apart, but it's apparently a fairly stunning viewing and listening experience. You already know if you're getting this I guess, so enjoy for what it is: The best visual presentation of Star Wars available.


Hesher - "Loud music. Pornography. Lighting fires. These are a few of Hesher's favorite things." And with that, I'm dying to see this headbanger coming-of-ager with a stellar cast in Joseph Gordon Levitt, Natalie Portman and Rainn Wilson.


Exterminator - the a kick-ass, cult revenge flick has been lovingly resurrected on this Blu-ray from Synapse Films. Thank you Synapse. It comes in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack so everyone can enjoy the carnage!


The Silent House - Coming from IFC, this Spanish shocker is reportedly the first film shot in real-time with no edits. We know that's no entirely true however as Pyun's Invasion used the same technique. Very interested to finally get a chance to check this one out.


The 10th Victim Blu-ray - One of my favourite swinging scifi flicks from 1960s Italy gets a lavish and, honestly mind-blowing- high-def refurbish on this Blu-ray from Blue Underground. Fans of this mod version of Battle Royal are going to be very happy.


Meek's Cutoff - Glass Eye Pix aficionados will know writer/director Kelly Reichardt from her last effort, Wendy and Lucy. Meek's Cutoff is a bleak, slow-moving trek down the Oregon trail. It garnered mixed reviews on its limited release this year, but now it's out for you to make up your own mind.

Hesher is a must see AO. It and Attack the Block have been my two faves so far this year.
