This Week's Top DVD Releases

MediaZEALOT weighs in the top DVDs hitting shelves on February 19th.

It's a new age for DVD as a victor has finally been awarded in the high-definition format war. Blu-ray has emerged the winner and now is the time to buy. Read on for this week's top DVD picks.

Run, Lola, Run

Tom Tykwer's masterpiece is finally out in high-definition on Blu-ray disc and is a must own. The film's editing is great. The music is great. The concept is great. Franka Potente is great. Run, Lola, Run simply cannot be skipped on, especially in high-def. Pick this one up, you will not be disappointed.

Michael Clayton

I missed catching Michael Clayton during it's run in theatres last year but am insistent on picking it up today and will check it out. It looks extremely promising and I'm a big Tom Wilkinson fan (Eternal Sunshine, Batman Begins) so I probably won't be disappointed. With seven Oscar nominations including Best Director and Original Screenplay for Tony Gilroy this film is not to be missed.

American Gangster

Sir Ridley Scott has been a bit hit-and-miss with his last few films but American Gangster is a return to form. The film isn't near the quality of his classics but is still a great film. Denzel and Crowe give great performances and this film is not to be missed in high-def. However, I would resist buying the HD DVD due to the recent events. Pick up the regular DVD or wait until this crosses over to Blu-ray.

Today's Other Releases:

The Invasion - Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel. Starring Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, and Veronica Cartwright.

Lust, Caution - Directed by Ang Lee. Starring Tang Wei and Tony Leung.

Margot at the Wedding - Directed by Noah Baumbach. Starring Nicole Kidman, Jack Black, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Rendition - Directed by Gavin Hood. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Reese Witherspoon, and Meryl Streep.

That's all for this week. Check back next week for more DVD releases including 30 Days of Night and Beowulf.
