Blu-ray releases on May 27th, 2008

Paramount has us all messed up again this week thanks to the fact that all its releases got pushed back to June 3rd. We tried our best to be accurate last week, but still managed to list two Paramount titles that we were unable to find at Amazon or at our local Best Buy. Not a big deal as all of the titles we were expecting last week, and the 32 previously released titles, should all be available by next week -- so we can finally get rid of the asterisks. On a slow week like this, it is easy to be the best release, but that doesn't mean we aren't excited to check out the latest in the Rambo franchise as well as enjoying part two and part three in HD for the first time. Interestingly, while the new Rambo movie includes a 7.1 PCM sound track, the older three all feature 5.1 DTS-HD MA. We find this very odd and really wonder why Lionsgate wouldn't go with DTS-HD MA on all of 'em. If you're not into anything this week, don't worry as next week has something for everyone with 18 new releases, 4 Paramount titles delayed from earlier this year, and we finally expect to see the 32 previously available Paramount titles on the shelf.

Blu-ray 553*
