RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Best Picture Nominee Argo and Sinister

Summary

One of last year's most talked about and (thus far) most honored films hits store shelves this week. Though it's tough to know what Argo's chances of winning the Best Picture Oscar are, at least it'll benefit from likely big rental numbers. Otherwise, we've also got Joe Wright's latest period piece with Keira Knightley, a Nickelodeon teen comedy, a fairly well-reviewed horror flick, and a ton of reissues.

I saw "Argo" on the shelves at Best Buy on Friday, and was wondering why I couldn't remember when it came out. I'll probably watch it again, but it wasn't a film that will stand the test of time. I'll definitely check out "Sinister".

I've always preferred the silent "Thief of Baghdad" to the Sabu version. The art direction is very impressive for its era. And kids who grew up on "Monsters Inc", give "Monster Squad" a chance. It's a lot of fun.

Keep in mind if you're letting your kids watch Monster Squad while it is fantastic it has a ton of colorful 80's language in it. I watched the anniversary edition and was surprised by how many things you couldn't get away with in a kids movie were in it. We've actually regressed a bit on that.

Wolfman nards!! Funny fact, I learned about what virginity meant from this movie. When the older sister couldn't be the virgin "sacrifice" or whatever I insisted on knowing what that meant and why. Ah the '80s....

Well, "Monsters Inc" is 10 years old, so I hope the kids who grew up on it are teenagers by now (at least). Now you want a kids movie from our day that would traumatize kids today, try "Shrunken Heads". Directed by Danny Elfman's brother.

Nice call on the Fairbanks version of THIEF OF BAGHDAD. You should like SINISTER: horror has never been my favorite genre, however this one actually frightened me to a certain extant. The irony is that the screenwriter said he got the inspiration after a nightmare following THE RING...which I laughed my ass off to!

I don't know if you would laugh through "Ringu" (the original) in 1998 or not, but unfortunately the iconic "well girl" has been imitated to the point of absurdity today.

I've seen RINGU and thought it was okay, never really laughed at it, as it was way better.

Five discs for Monsters, Inc.? Ok, sure.

Argo is a movie, I believe, that is destined for multiple replays on TMC and the like, so I'll give it a pass even though it was one of the year's best. On the Waterfront is my second favorite Brando film, the first being Apocalypse Now, and its release on Blu-ray is a real treat.

Disney's trying to waste our god darn money. Heck, I even got a Monsters, Inc blu ray combo pack a year ago and now its been outdated by one with 3D.

I don't think AZrgo will grab it. I perferred Lincoln instead!!!

Me too, but I think Argo might get it as a partial mea culpa from the Academy on how wrong they were excluding Affleck from the director category.

Agreed, Lincoln was a much more interesting movie but they were both good so I don't care which one wins on Sunday. :)

Argo was crap. Lincoln is the film that deserves to win at the Oscars.

Argo is my must buy of the week! I'm hearing nothing but incredible things about it. Ben Affleck has grown incredibly well as a filmmaker. I'm not a big horror fan so I doubt I'll be seeing Sinister anytime soon. Anna Karenina may be worth a rent and Fun Size most definitely will not be. I hope Argo wins at the Oscars next week!!

I missed Argo in theaters, I'm picking this movie to win at the Oscars Sunday.

I certainly have to rent Top Gun instead of 3-D. R.I.P Tony Scott!

I don't wanna buy Monsters Inc. this week, but I'm planning it soon for my birthday.

I don't know who's Victoria Justice, but she's a Miranda Cosgrove clone. Fun Size is not funny and not recommended for me.
