Cult Favorite “Fargo” Arrives Remastered on Blu-ray April 1

fargo-001Not sure how much I can say about Fargo, beyond just, “It’s brilliant”, but here it goes.  Fargo was one of the best films of the 90s, one of my favorite films ever, and is full of great performances, direction, and dark humor.  It is a fantastic film and now it is getting an all new Blu-ray release, ensuring that it will look better than ever.  I often say that snow is my favorite thing to see on Blu-ray, as there is something about the quality that really stands out when it comes to looking at snow in 1080p.  Now I will have the chance to see the snow, along with all of the other great things this film has to offer,  in a new light, with Carter Burwell’s great score backing it up, let alone all the weirdness that comes from Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare teaming up to be a part of a very odd kidnapping story.  This new addition of the film arrives on Blu-ray April 1st.  Read on to learn more about this upcoming release.


The “middle of nowhere” has never looked better in this new edition, now remastered for the best high-definition picture yet! In this film Nominated for seven OSCARS®, * things go terribly awry when small-time Minnesota car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) hires two thugs (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife so he can collect the ransom from his wealthy father-in-law. Once people start dying, the very chipper and very pregnant Police Chief Marge (Frances McDormand) takes the case. Will she stop at nothing until she gets her man? You betcha.
