The latest episode is now available!
As usual I review all the new releases that debuted on Blu over the last week, as well as giving a quick 'heads up' of new titles coming out in the week ahead and giving a rundown on the best-selling Blu-rays in the Official Sales Chart for the last seven days, up to the evening of Saturday, 22nd January 2011.
This week's new reviews include American comedies Grown Ups (2010) and Soul Men (2008), family-oriented horror film The Hole (2010), romantic comedy The Switch, Cannes film festival award winner Certified Copy, and two classics from the Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu Equinox Flower (1958) and Good Morning (1959).
If you found this week's News and Chart rant interesting I've got an interesting blog post about Chart Hyping and the Increasing Power of the Supermarkets over on my personal blog.
I'd love you to rate the podcast on iTunes to help it get a sufficient number of ratings for an average to become visible on iTunes podcast search (and thanks to the three folks who've already given the podcast five star ratings. Truly humbling!)
