The Coen Brothers hit another home run with their perfectly handcrafted latest effort, A Serious Man, which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray today. If you’re a fan of the Coen brothers (and seriously, if you read this website and you’re not at least a fan of The Big Lebowski, you must have been living in a cave for the last decade) then this movie is a must own.
Next on the list is a 10 DVD set of Chaplin films that I’m pretty keen on getting for myself. It includes City Lights, The Kid, Modern Times, The Gold Rush, and The Great Dictator, among others, and is priced to move at $20. This is both a steal and a must see for anyone interesting in films or great comedies. In fact, I watched City Lights over again last night and it once again proved to me that it’s perhaps one of the best movies ever made. (In fact, it was #5 on Stanley Kubrick’s list of best films ever.)
I wish there were more, but aside from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Running Man on Blu-ray, there isn’t much of note to mention.
Until next week.
