DVD Picks – May 19, 2009

Fresh off the long weekend and it’s time to get back to business.

This week my main DVD pick is the WWII thriller Valkyrie (also on Blu-Ray). I thought that, despite poor public opinion on Tom Cruise, it was still a good film that kept me under suspense, even though I had a good idea how it was going to turn out.

Also out this week is the year’s first $100M+ hit Paul Blart: Mall Cop (also on Blu-Ray). I thought that even though the film started out iffy, I started having fun when the plot got going.

I missed it in theaters, but this week also sees the DVD release on Fanboys (also on Blu-Ray).

Rounding out the new releases is My Bloody Valentine 3D (also on Blu-Ray), complete with 3D glasses.

Notable films being released on Blu-Ray this week include A Bug’s Life, Enemy at the Gates, The Machinist, Fast Company, and Teminator 2: Skynet Edition.

And that’s my DVD Picks for this week.
