This Week in Blu-ray, always giving you the latest details on the hottest releases in the world of high definition home entertainment. This week it’s a group of critically acclaimed films, from last year’s Best Picture winner to a bleak tale from the legendary Ken Loach. There’s also a Jack Black movie, which cannot be counted among the critically acclaimed. And there’s one of Nicole Kidman’s finest performances to date. All in high definition, all reviewed as part of this week’s Blu-ray selection. The King’s Speech A lot of strong reactions were had to The King’s Speech taking home the Best Picture award on Oscar Night. But whether you thought it was deserving of the win, or you thought the Weinsteins had pulled off a great magic trick, there’s no doubting the fact that it belonged among the nominees. It’s a lively story of one man’s struggle to become the leader his nation needs, a Royal story that feels grounded and full of characters we are comfortable around, even to the point of liking them. At the very least, the Blu-ray will be beneficial because it contains the R-rated original cut of the film, not the PG-13 abomination that recently played in theaters. It’s also well-stuffed with extras, including a deeper look at the real Lionel Logue, as well as real speech reels that were given by King George. It’s History Channel stuff, but who doesn’t love the History Channel? This is an easy pick in an otherwise dull week.
