First up today, our very own Todd Doogan has checked in with a review of Spike Lee’s recent Americanized remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 Korean action-thriller Oldboy, which was itself adapted from a Japanese manga from the late 1990s. The Lee film is now available on Blu-ray from Sony. Turns out it’s... interesting. Check out Todd’s review - he’ll tell you all about it.

In release news today, select retail sources have reported to us that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is gearing up to release a number of Godzilla double-feature Blu-rays on 5/6 (SRP $19.99 each) as part of Godzilla’s 60th anniversary celebration this year. A quick search, reveals that Amazon.com is already taking pre-orders (see the following title links). Among them are Godzilla: Final Wars (2004)/Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (2003), Godzilla vs. Destroyah (1995)/Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000), Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991)/Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth (1992), and Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993)/Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994). We’re working to confirm this officially with the studio, so stay tuned. We’ll update here as soon as we hear back.  [Read on here…]
