Buy The 2011 Best Picture Oscar Movies on Blu-ray and DVD


Almost every single one of the 2011 Best Picture Oscar Nominees are available or will be very shortly on blu-ray and DVD. The release date for True Grit has not been released yet but you can bet that the release of this movie remake is not far away. Most of the rest of the movies are available, with a couple of exceptions arriving in March and The King's Speech arriving finally in April.

Here's the list, of the movies nominated for Best Picture 2011 which are ALREADY available on blu-ray and DVD:

127 Hours
Inception
The Kids Are All Right
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
Winter's Bone

And those movies are all on sale and ready for pre-order from Amazon:

The King's Speech (Release date April 19, 2011)
Black Swan (Release date March 29, 2011)
The Fighter (Release date March 15, 2011)

I like the fact that Amazon often has the movies deeply discounted and that they offer FREE shipping on orders worth $25 or more.

Mia Wasikowska is the new Jane Eyre (2011)

Mia Wasikowska is the next Jane Eyre and will appear in the upcoming 2011 version of the movie. In this short video, she speaks briefly about a number of issues related to the movie including what she thinks of Jane Eyre, the costumes for the movie, working with Michael Fassbender (who plays Edward Rochester) and, of course, working with Judi Dench (who plays Mrs. Fairfax.) I will admit that I have great respect for Judi Dench's work and cannot wait to see her in this movie. 

Mia Waskiowska, by the way, was Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland last year and before that, she may be best known for her work on The Kids Are All Right, although she has been involved in numerous other projects. For a full filmography of Mia Wasikowska, visit IMDB.




Anyone else looking forward to the 2011 version of Jane Eyre?

Masterpiece Theatre's Jane Eyre Movie Review

With the arrival soon at the movie theatre of the new version of Jane Eyre, I went looking for other movie versions of Charlotte Bronte's story and as a result, I watched and thoroughly enjoyed Masterpiece Theatre's Jane Eyre.

What did I like? Well almost everything. The casting was superb as was the cinematography. The story was dark and brooding, which was exactly as it should be.

Was there anything I did not like? Well, if I were to be really picky. I think that there is a bit at the end that is odd but that comes after the conclusion of the story and just makes you wonder why they added that bit on at the end.

For Jane Eyre fans who are into blu-ray, I am sorry to report that at least until the 2011 Jane Eyre is released on blu-ray, there are no options to watch this period drama in that format but please do not let that stop you from checking out Masterpiece Theatre's Jane Eyre.

New Jane Eyre Movie 2011


I love period movies and I was excited when I saw the trailer for the new Jane Eyre movie. This version of the 1847 book by Charlotte Bronte stars Mia Wasikowska, who appeared last year in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland movie. Rumours say that this film will stay fairly close to the storyline.


I was excited enough to find myself wondering what other versions of Jane Eyre had been made and right now I am smack in the middle of and enthralled with Masterpiece Theatre's Jane Eyre. Plus, I see there are a number of others versions to be had...

See you

Walt Disney's Bambi Comes Out Of The Vault in 2011


Walt Disney's Bambi is coming out of the vault this spring. Anyone who loves Bambi will be excited to see the movie for the first time on high definition blu-ray disc.

Bambi was Walt Disney's first animated movie that tried to feature animals that looked real. It took Disney and his studio five years to put this movie together and Disney went to great lengths to achieve the look AND the feel of Bambi.




Bambi sure looks good to me, although parents ought to be aware that Bambi is not appropriate for all children. I think it is really easy to jump to that conclusion, especially in the case of a movie which features such sweet characters as Bambi and Thumper.  If you are a parent of young children, I recommend proceeding with caution. Bambi is definitely not for children under the age of 5 and is even disturbing for children as old as the age of 10. 

What do you think? Is Bambi okay for young children?  If you have an experience to share with other parents about the age appropriateness of Bambi, please feel free to leave a comment here on this page or to join the debate and see what other parents have to say here.

If you want to learn more about the Bambi movie and the blu-ray disc, please visit my page about the Bambi blu-ray movie release.

A Johnny Depp Magazine For Valentine's Day? Why Not?

Johnny Depp for Valentine's Day? Sure why not, after all I received him from Santa Claus in my Christmas stocking.

If you are planning on spending $5 or more on a greeting card why not consider greeting her with a wonderful Johnny Depp picture...on the cover of a magazine!

I cannot imagine a better Valentine's Day card than an issue of a magazine 'starring' Johnny Depp. Not only would I have one of the best Johnny Depp pictures available to add to my collection, but I would also have some great reading material. (I don't actually have a collection unless you count my movies but I am off to a great start with the January 2011 edition of Vanity Fair that Santa gave me.)

How about you? If you are looking for a unique Valentine's Day gift, consider the gift of Depp...

You might also consider a romantic movie starring Mr. Depp. The movie Chocolat is one of my favorite romantic movies, available on blu-ray, and just happens to star one of my favorite actors... If you have not seen Chocolat, do so. The book by Joanne Harris is pretty darn good, too.

See you
at the movies!

Meet The Seven Dwarfs: Snow White's Seven Dwarfs

For some, Snow White's Seven Dwarfs need no introduction. SLEEPY, SNEEZY, DOPEY, DOC, HAPPY, BASHFUL, and GRUMPY have been a part of our lives since Walt Disney created the movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

If you'd like to know a little bit more about these friendly and helpful guys, you might enjoy a visit to my page Meet The Seven Dwarfs: Snow White's Friends In The Forest where you will learn a bit more about them and about their history.

Like to know a trick to remember their names? You'll find that on my page, too. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this little video of Snow White's Seven Dwarfs singing Heigh-Ho.

Romantic Hallmark Movies For Valentine's Day and All Year Long

Wondering about the romantic Hallmark movies that are being released in 2011 just in time for Valentine's Day?  The Hallmark channel is running a countdown of movies leading up to February 14th and three of them are brand new movies.

Romantic Movies By Hallmark 2011 discusses these three exciting new movies ~~ A Valentine's Date, Smooch and Accidentally in Love ~~ and yes, in my humble opinion, they do look good.

If you do not have the privilege of receiving the Hallmark Channel, you will also find on that page a helpful list of Hallmark romantic movies that are available on DVD.

While The Lost Valentine was not released as part of Hallmark's countdown Valentine's Day, it definitely was a romantic movie and it was extremely well received on January 30th when it premiered. It is doubtful that this movie will be rerun anytime soon, but you can already buy a copy from Amazon by clicking right here.

Here's hoping that these resources help you find a few chick flicks to add to your collection and that your significant other agrees to watch along with you. Do you think he will?
