Every week I make a list of notable discs being released so I can figure out what I “need” to buy. ;)

* “Fargo”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116282/ – Any Coen brothers movie remastered for Blu-Ray is a must, and this is no exception. I can’t wait to see the vast expanses of ice and snow, with sharp splatters of blood.
* “Galaxy Quest”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0177789/ – This is one of the few Tim Allen vehicles that I would own, but since it’s only a DVD release then I will wait. I don’t understand why any studio is still doing only DVD releases.
* “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060196/ – There aren’t many movies my wife will let me upgrade to Blu-Ray, but any Leone movie in my collection has to be seen in Hi Def.
* “The Grudge”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0391198/ – I would normally support any project from a Joss Whedon alumnus, but this remake of a hit Japanese horror film is not just worse than the original — it is bad all on its own.
* “Taken”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0936501/ – I’m still mad at Luc Besson and Pierre Morel for releasing this in every other country before the US, but I love a good revenge flick. This is a _great_ revenge flick.
* Disney Animation Collections 1-6 “Mickey and the Beanstalk”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0168071/, “The Prince and the Pauper”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100409/, “Three Little Pigs”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024660/, “The Tortoise and the Hare”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0027126/, “The Wind in the Willows”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042044/, “The Reluctant Dragon”:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0034091/ – I bought several of Walt Disney’s animation DVDs before I realized I needed to wait until they were remastered for High Definition. Now I know better, but it is tempting to see all of these released on the same day.
