The Book of Eli It's a dead, dead, dead, dead world, and Denzel Washington is bringin' holy back as he sets out to both protect the Bible and spread the Word on his way out west, believing it holds the secret to humanity's revival (and survival). At the same time, this true believer doesn't hesitate to put up a fight when challenged. Hot on the heels of the better (if even more depressing) The Road, Eli comes off as heavy-handed, humorless and about as much fun as sitting through mass. Watch this exclusive clip. Extras: Widescreen version, additional scenes, "Lost Tales" (DVD/BD); featurettes "Starting Over," "Eli's Journey," the soundtrack, PiP commentary with the directors and Washington (BD).
Flash Gordon "FLASH! Ahahhhh...he'll save every one of us!" The campy 1980 space fantasy with the awesome Queen score may be dated and more than silly, but on Blu-ray, I can't recommend it enough. Colors are brilliant, drops of water so clear you feel like they're falling in your living room, and costumes so shiny you could see your reflection in Flash's red jacket-- or Ornella Muti's lipgloss. Any child of the '70s needs to get this ASAP. Extras: Nothing spectacular here. A few trailers, screenwriter commentary.
