PACIFIC RIM @ 3D BLU SALE
 
That's right, Guillermo del Toro's epic sci-fi adventure is already on DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray. Evil skyscraper-sized alien monsters called Kaiju are about to wipe out humanity once and for all, and it's up to a scrappy group of pilots to fight this menace with Jaegers, equally massive robots they control with a special neural link. This movie has a part where someone presses a button labeled "SWORD", and then one of the robots pulls out a giant sword. AWESOME.
 

 

MANIAC @ BLU SALE

Elijah Wood is a serial killer in this remake of Bill Lustig's 1980 exploitation masterpiece. This is one of the few great horror remakes in recent memory, as it retains the skeleton (and brutal violence) of the original while adding a boatload of style -- the entire film is shot from the first person POV of the murderer! Also features a fantastic electronic score, and look out for an extended homage to THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.

 

DRUG WAR @ BLU SALE

Hong Kong master director Johnnie To unleashes his latest action thriller masterpiece, either his best film in 15 years, or just his best film since his last one. DRUG WAR takes us into the labyrinthine world of triad drug dealers and undercover cops in mainland China. Absolutely nobody gets away unscathed in this one, and it features one of the greatest climactic shootouts in recent memory.

We've also got the Danish seaborne thriller A HIJACKING (@ BLU SALE) and this summer's hit buddy cop comedy THE HEAT (@ BLU SALE) starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. And one last sale title: the TCM Greats VAL LEWTON Collection (SALE). It comes with CAT PEOPLE, CURSE OF THE CAT PEOPLE, BODY SNATCHER, and I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE, all for a measly $19.95.
