'Apocalypse Now' sits high on the list of great films that haven't yet hit Blu-ray. It's a classic, and it really demands a high definition version. Thanks to a recent distribution deal with Lionsgate and American Zoetrope, it's getting it.
The original 'Clash of the Titans' was very much a cult classic, and this week's movies reflect that. There isn't much in terms of new, but there are plenty of old horror flicks and comedies that certainly earn their cult status, even if "classic" may be debatable.
Advancements in technology, no matter what the application, are incredibly cool to learn about. When it's something that could be benefitting us in five or 10 years time, it's even cooler. Sony's new blue-violet laser definitely qualifies.
In an otherwise dreary release week, two films you've almost certainly never seen are the ones to watch. If you're looking for bigger releases though, you'll have to deal with the mediocre 'Chloe' and the absolutely awful 'Bounty Hunter.'
