If you've been reading this weekly post regularly and thinking, "man when is a new kick-ass movie or all of my favorite MGM classics going to be on Blu-ray?" then this is your week. Kick-ass isn't exactly the type of movie that would draw us to the theater, but any title that hits Blu-ray with an IMDB score of 8.2 warrants our time and attention. But that isn't the only thing this week as MGM has six classics and Universal has the 80's famous The Breakfast Club as well as the 4th season of Heroes -- which we wouldn't watch again if you paid us. There is obviously more to talk about that we're missing but one last one we'll mention is Sony's The Prophet, which we've never heard of, but we always enjoy a good crime drama, especially with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 97%, wow.
