The Avengers Blu Ray

The Avengers was one of the best movies of the summer (though, like so many films, the golden shine wears off upon multiple viewings). Luckily, a great blu ray can do a lot to jazz up a film you saw in a movie theater two or three months ago, even if you saw it three or four times. And the Avengers totally delivers.

It’s a decent offering from Lionsgate Films, a studio that’s become known for delivering fairly high quality movies for pretty meager price tags.

Battleship is an extraordinarily and exceedingly stupid movie. If you saw it in the theater, I’m sorry. If you’re gonna see it on blu ray… well, I’m still sorry. Mostly ’cause the movie sucked. But also because the blu ray isn’t that impressive.
