DVD Picks – March 1, 2010 – 127 Hours, Faster, Love & Other Drugs and More

It what can be considered impeccable timing, Best Picture nominee 127 Hours is released today only two days after the Oscar ceremony (the timing would have been more impeccable if the film actually won).  Not sure if I’m going to rush out and buy the film (you can only see that amputation scene so many times), but it is still my main pick of the week.  On to the picks.

127 Hours
Blu-Ray – $29.99 (CAN), $19.99 (US)
Standard – $19.99 (CAN), $14.99 (US)
My Thoughts: While not the best “person entrapped in enclosed area” film released last year, it was an intriguing and suspenseful film that will keep you on the edge of your seat, even though you know how it’s going to end.
My Recommendation: Rent It

Faster [Blu-ray]
Blu-Ray – $19.99 (CAN), $19.99 (US)
Standard – $21.99 (CAN), $14.99 (US)
My Thoughts: A formulaic film that I wouldn’t rush to see again.
My Recommendation: Rent It

Love & Other Drugs [Blu-ray]
Love & Other Drugs
Blu-Ray – $34.99 (CAN), $22.99 (US)
Standard – $32.61 (CAN), $16.99 (US)

(There is also a certain Christina Aguilera/Cher film being released this week, but I feel no need to even mention it – other than this aside of course)

Blu-Ray Re-Releases
Bambi (Two-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging)
Bambi – Diamond Edition – $29.99 (CAN), $22.99 (US)

The Cable Guy [Blu-ray]
The Cable Guy – 15th Anniversary Edition – $18.88 (CAN), $17.49 (US)

And those are my DVD Picks for this week.
