You might have noticed a lack of DVD columns during the last month or so. That’s because I usually slow down on DVD purchases right before the holidays. Now, with the holidays right upon us, I will post this summary of my top DVD picks for the season.
My #1 pick is undoubtedly Christopher Nolan’s Inception and its one film I definitely want to receive as a gift on Saturday morning. On to the picks.
The Disappearance of Alice Creed
Blu-Ray – $27.97 (CAN), $13.99 (US)
Standard – $28.76 (CAN), $18.49 (US)
My Thoughts: A captivating film, with many twists that makes it more interesting as it goes along.
Blu-Ray – $32.89 (CAN), $23.99 (US)
Standard – $33.49 (CAN), $17.99 (US)
My Thoughts: One of the better films to come out with M Night Shyamalan’s name on it and it could probably be ranked among the better films that he directed.
Blu-Ray/DVD Combo – $26.99 (CAN), $19.99 (US)
Standard – $24.99 (CAN), $13.99 (US)
My Thoughts: An alright enough film, but it was a far cry from “the action film to end all action films.”
Disney’s A Christmas Carol
Blu-Ray 3D/Blu-Ray/DVD Combo – $27.99 (CAN), $24.99 (US)
Blu-Ray/DVD Combo – $23.99 (CAN), $20.49 (US)
Standard – $16.99 (CAN), $13.49 (US)
My Thoughts: A decent adaptation of the classic story.
The Other Guys
Blu-Ray/DVD Combo – $27.37 (CAN), 24.99 (US)
Standard – $19.99 (CAN), $16.99 (US)
My Thoughts: There are funny bits throughout the film, but it doesn’t hold a candle to Will Ferrel’s previous films with Adam McKay.
And those are my Holiday DVD Picks!
