DVD Picks – October 12, 2010 – How to Train Your Dragon, Jonah Hex, and More

My true pick for this week would be to finally pick up Splice, which happened to come out a week later in Canada than the US (which is weird, considering how it’s a Canadian film).  However, if I had to make a pick for the new releases this week, I’d say that I’d pick How to Train Your Dragon, which is film I wish in hindsight that I saw in theatres.  Other than that, it’s a bit of an off week.  On to the picks.

How to Train Your Dragon
Blu-Ray/DVD Combo – $29.99 (CAN), $22.99 (US)
Standard – $18.99 (CAN), $16.99 (US)

Jonah Hex
Blu-Ray/DVD Combo – $27.99 (CAN), $22.99 (US)
Standard – $24.99 (CAN), $16.99 (US)
My Thoughts: Came off as Ghost Rider without any of Nicolas Cage’s charisma.
My Recommendation: Skip It

Blu-Ray Re-Releases
The Darjeeling Limited (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]

Plus one I missed last week:

And that’s my DVD Picks for this week.
