This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: January 08, 2008

Zodiac HD DVDThis week marks the release of the first batch of high-definition DVDs since on-the-fence Warner landed decidedly on the Blu side; I must admit, as an HD DVD man, the day feels a bit colder than normal. But no matter—the format war is far from over.

On a lighter note, both formats have some exciting titles to speak of, including the Blu-ray release of one of my favorite movies from 2007, Sunshine; Roman Polanski’s Oscar-winning film, The Pianist, on HD DVD; and the long-awaited special edition of David Fincher’s Zodiac, also on HD DVD. The DVD release from July contained nary a special feature, so this two-disc director’s cut ought to please those Fincher fans waiting for a decent version.

Check out the full list of high-def releases after the jump.

Review: 3:10 to Yuma (2007)

3:10 to Yuma posterWhen struggling Arizona rancher Dan Evans (Christian Bale) sets out one morning to find his lost cattle, he happens upon a stagecoach robbery and a gang of thieves led by infamous outlaw Ben Wade (Russell Crowe).  In need of money, Evans volunteers to help capture Wade in a nearby town, escort him to a railroad stop, and put him on the “3:10 to Yuma”, a train that takes prisoners to trial.  There’s only one problem: Wade’s gang is looking for their boss, and they’ll kill anyone who gets in the way.  3:10 to Yuma is based on the classic 1957 western of the same name. 

I had a chance to see the film a week early (thanks, Warren Report); here is an in-depth review of the action-packed western.
