This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.
ENTER THE VOID
Enter the Void is unlike anything I have ever seen or experienced. It’s a one-of-a-kind work of stunning ambition and passion—a psychedelic trip through one man’s drug-fueled perception of his life, his death, his afterlife, and his rebirth. This is not a film to be taken lightly. From its dizzying, techno-charged opening credits onward, it assaults the senses, immersing you (whether you like it or not) into a soulless abyss of life-altering despair, vacuous sex, vibrant neon cityscapes, and obsessive existential desires. For many, it will be a confounding, interminable bore, so indulgent in its own sensual kineticism that it fails to conjure up a satisfying, coherent narrative. Such a reaction is understandable, but with the current antiquated need for the same strict storytelling structure in every film, Gaspar Noé’s soaring, perspective-bending journey through an ethereal Tokyo dreamscape marks exactly the sort of unrestrained madness that today’s jaded moviegoers should be celebrating. It isn’t just the greatest visual achievement since 2001: A Space Odyssey—it’s one of the greatest achievements in cinema, period.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Deleted scenes, VFX, Vortex, DMT, Posters, and Teasers/Trailers/US Trailer/Unused Trailers.

Imagine Christopher Nolan released Batman films this quickly. 2010 will see not one, not two, but all three Swedish film adaptations of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy hit the big screen as a trailer has just been released for the third and film of the series, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest starring Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace. It comes on the same weekend that David Fincher, currently prepping the American remake of the first film of the trilogy The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, not only has the number one movie at the box office with The Social Network but also features the woman he cast as lead character Lisbeth Salandar, Rooney Mara. The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest will start rolling out on October 29. Hit the jump to see the trailer and more. Read More »
