There’s a lot to love on Blu-ray this week, from the hotly anticipated Battlestar Galactica to the family friendly and wildly entertaining Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.  Read on to see all of this week’s releases:

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs  (Amazon Link)

Based on the classic children’s story, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a wonderful flick for the whole family.  It’s smartly written and is full of stars that will delight parents as much as the animation delights their children.  Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Neil Patric Harris and Bruce Campbell are among the impressive cast appearing in the film.  Of course, we’d be remiss to fail to mention just how good digital animation looks in 1080p.

Battlestar Galactica: Season 1  (Amazon Link)

It was one of the most popular shows on television over the past few years and easily the best looking Sci-fi epic on television.  Starting tomorrow, Battlestar Galactica will finally available on Blu-ray.  This four disc set includes the full first season, as well as the four hour miniseries, in full 1080p and with DTS-HD Master Audio.  Finally you can relive all the excitement of the series at an even better resolution than when you originally watched it on TV.

The Final Destination  (Amazon Link)

The latest in the Final Destination series, The Final Destination brings to the screen the same near death experiences and grisly demises that the earlier films were so famous for.  Unlike previous installations, The Final Destination utilizes 3D video.  This isn’t the same 3D Blu-ray technology we’ve been hearing about in the news though, so don’t be surprised to find blue and red lenses on the included 3D glasses.

Other titles include:

- 50 Dead Men Walking (Rose McGowan, Ben Kingsley)
- 10 Things I Hate About You (Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles)
- Chuck: The Complete Second Season
- Dogtown and Z-Boys (Sean Penn, Tony Hawk)
- The Green Berets (John Wayne)
- Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (Steve Martin, Eugene Levy, Hilary Duff)
