The last week of April is a great week for catalog titles.  The 'Elizabeth' films finally make it to Blu-ray, as do 'Tombstone,' 'Armageddon,' and the David Lynch version of 'Dune.'  Read on to find out all of this week's Blu-ray releases.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Heath Ledger's death midway through shooting made completing 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' a complicated venture, and the project was nearly scrapped.  Terry Gilliam cast not one, but three different actors to portray the character during different transitional phases.  The result is a film that holds together beautifully, despite a rocky production.

It's Complicated

'It's Complicated' is a bit of a diamond in the rough.  It's not an amazing film by any means, but a romantic comedy that's good is hard to come by.  Meryl Streep stars alongside Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin in the movie.  The all-star cast gives it there all and ends up with a rom-com that goes beyond the traditionally low expectations for the genre.


It's great to see 'Traffic' finally making its way to Blu-ray.  The film was released on HD-DVD back in 2006, and four years later Soderburgh's drug war picture is back.  It stars Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Salma Hayek and the incomparable Benicio del Toro, who took home an Oscar for his performance.

Other Releases This week include:

Dark Nature
District 13: Ultimatum
Dune [1984]
Elizabeth: The Golden Age
Five Minutes of Heaven
The Jackal
Out of Africa
Ride with the Devil
