Blu Tuesday – DVD and Bluray Release Report July 20th

This week is a triple threat as the three main releases are all worthy of spaces on my DVD shelf.

A Buddy Cop comedy, an ensemble action comedy and a kickass rock biopic? Who can resist?

Let’s check them out:

Cop OutCheck out our Review

Two longtime NYPD partners on the trail of a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective whose missing collectible is his only hope to pay for his daughter’s upcoming wedding, and Paul (Tracy Morgan) is his “partner-against-crime” whose preoccupation with his wife’s alleged infidelity makes it hard for him to keep his eye on the ball.

This wasn’t Kevin Smith’s best film, but I have to tell you the Maximum Comedy Mode makes it totally worth it.

Bought already.

The Losers Check out our Review

An explosive tale of double cross and revenge, The Losers centers upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. The team–Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar–find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they’re joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda. Working together, they must remain deep undercover while tracking the heavily-guarded Max, a ruthless man bent on embroiling the world in a new high-tech global war.

I had a lot of fun with this movie, and its a good action flick with lots of comedy and splodey parts. Definately worth it! Bought already.

The Runaways

Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning star in this music-fueled story of the ground-breaking, all girl, teenage rock band of the 1970s: The Runaways. The film follows two friends, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley, played by Michael Shannon, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits. With its tough-chick image and raw talent, the band quickly earns a name for itself—and so do its two leads: Joan is the band’s pure rock ‘n’ roll heart, while Cherie, with her Bowie-Bardot looks, is the sex kitten.

I heard a lot of good things about this but never got to see it. I will likely be picking this up soon just to see if Kristen Stewart can smile, and struggle with not-8-years-old Dakota Fanning in a corset.

So what are you picking up this week?
