DVD Picks – May 11, 2010 – Daybreakers, Legion, Edge of Darkness, and More

While last week didn’t feature many releases I was interested in, this week is the complete opposite.  This week has no less than three releases that I wouldn’t mind picking up.  Since I will only be getting one, I will pick the Ethan Hawke-starring vampire film Daybreakers.  On to the picks.

Blu-Ray – $26.99 (CAN), $24.99 (US)
Standard – $19.99 (CAN), $17.99 (US)
My Thoughts: An enjoyable experience that delved into action and science fiction (instead of just horror).
My Recommendation: Buy It

Legion [Blu-ray]
Blu-Ray – $25.49 (CAN), $22.99 (US)
Standard – $24.99 (CAN), $17.99 (US)
My Thoughts: Was better during the action scenes, rather than the dramatic dialog scenes, which were cringe-worthy at parts.
My Recommendation: Rent It

Edge of Darkness (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy)
Edge of Darkness
Blu-Ray – $27.99 (CAN), $19.99 (US)
Standard – $19.99 (CAN), $16.99 (US)
My Thoughts: If it wasn’t for Mel Gibson’s involvement, this would just be a standard thriller.
My Recommendation: Rent It

Blu-Ray Re-Releases
M (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] 
M (Criterion) – $28.49 (CAN), $32.49 (US)

The Karate Kid / The Karate Kid, Part II Boxed Set [Blu-ray]
The Karate Kid I&II – $30.49 (CAN), $27.96 (US)

The Man In The Iron Mask (w/DVD) [Blu-ray]
The Man in the Iron Mask – $17.99 (CAN), $18.99 (US)

And that’s my DVD Picks for this week.
