Aaron’s Top 10 Blu-rays of 2010

As little time as I have to actually sit at home and watch all the Blu-rays I own and check out all the special features they have to offer, there are a certain number of films that I could not pass up when it came to checking them out at my own leisure, in the comfort of my own home. The following list is set of films that I consider to be some of the best that the Blu-ray format has had to offer for this year.

Alien Anthology (Blu-ray Review)

I’m pretty sure that all three of my staff Blu-ray reviewers, excluding myself, would put some of the Alien movies in their all-time favorite lists if I asked them.  And so when the Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set arrived at my doorstep upon returning from sunny California, almost two weeks ago, it arrived at what […]

Check Your Wall, I “Liked” The Social Network

An important thing to note right off the bat about this film is that it is not “Facebook: The Movie.”  This is a film, based on a novel that recounts the creation of Facebook through multiple perspectives and the legal action that followed.  I believe this film could have just as easily been about the […]

‘The Social Network’ Makes Me Want to be a Billionaire So Frickin’ Bad

Let’s start off with the obvious question.  Who out there reading this doesn’t have a Facebook account, a show of hands please?  I futilely resisted all these years, but when pressured by the marketing forces behind the studios to get one for promotion of our reviews, I reluctantly succumbed having no choice in the matter […]

Se7en (Blu-ray Review)

A decade before the incarnation of Saw, the crime thriller Seven (stylized as Se7en) “saw” its reign in the theaters some 15 years ago in 1995.  My God, has it been that long?  And honestly, I remember really liking the film, but for some reason I never revisited the film again.  Must be a lack […]

‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ is Found!

Well there wasn’t much Blu-ray news to report on yesterday, but at least one positive thing happened in the world.  Someone was cast to play Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher’s US adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.  That girl’s name is Rooney Mara.  I only know her from the newest incarnation […]

Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition (Review)

Words cannot vividly express how honored and excited I am to be the recipient of the following Blu-ray disc and also to be selected to furnish a review of it.  It’s literally a dream come true for me.  To declare the following manuscript of confabulation a mere Blu-ray review would simply be misleading.  Instead, think […]

MISCHIEF. MAYHEM. SOAP. BLU-RAY.

Earlier today I received the email that made my day even better.  Not only have I been at home getting in some much needed R&R, today being Veteran’s Day, but I also was notified to be on the lookout for my Blu-ray review copy, sometime next week, of the movie that completely changed my life and thought processes.  I’m […]

The First Rule of Fight Club – It Always Looks Better on Blu-ray!

Had it not been for 2008’s The Dark Knight I would be passed out right now from the news of the OFFICAL Fight Club Blu-ray announcement.  Up until July 2008, Fight Club has always been my #1 go to movie for all my needs.  For some people this film is more than a movie, its […]
