This Week's DVD/Blu-ray Choice, 26th July

The only two partially worthwhile releases this week just happen to be my joint choice.

My chosen two are:

-Clash of the Titans (2010)
-Remember Me

Despite being critically hated, Clash of the Titans, the remake of the 1981 original, pits Sam Worthington (originally Harry Hamlin) against an enormous amount of befuddlingly fictitious, other-wordly creatures only Greek mythology could configure. Still, despite copious amounts of cheese, the film is extravagantly entertaining if you're into your explosive effects, stunning set pieces and Sam Worthington in a toga. A blu-ray purchase is recommended, purely to see the glorious Medusa scene in high-def.

Secondly, we have Edward, i mean Robert Pattinson, star in Remember Me as a rebellious New Yorker whose run in with a cop forces him to forge an unlikely friendship with his daughter, leading, predictably, to a relationship shrouded in lies. Despite how unoriginal the plot is, the breakout performance from Pattinson proves he actually can act, and the superior ending is jaw-dropping enough to fall instantly memorable.
