Default Lesser Known Blu Recommendations

Please recommend relatively unknown Blu's for everyone. They don't have to be your favorite films, just some that are worth seeing. I need to fill up my Blockbuster Queue

I'll recommend Sleuth and The Air I Breathe.

EDIT: Please only recommend films that are available on BLU.

Oh my god not that remake plz

I recommend Gattaca cause. Apparently hasn't done so well on Blu-Ray so far.

Entrapment, Syriana, The Prestige, Black Rain, Before the Devil Knows Your Dead, Dog Day Afternoon, Lucky Number Slevin (the most underrated movie of the decade), Oldboy, The Proposition.

Il leave it at that the now.

Some Blus with really great PQ that are under the radar:

Seven Years in Tibet
Good Night, and Good Luck
Immortal Beloved
Broken Trail
How the West Was Won

Oh, and they're all great films as well.

I would definitely have to recommend The Signal. I loved that movie and it's got great PQ and AQ.

In addition to that, I'd also recommended Shinobi. It's got great action sequences.

I also say Flatliners. I was surprised just how good the PQ was.

It's 4.5.

You're in for a treat. It's not something you watch for HT experience but it's still incredible.

Also don't overlook "Young Frankenstein" (It's Frankensteeeen) the PQ is amazing, and of course it's a great movie too

Yeah, the mono track is kinda disappointing, but a good movie is a good movie.

Priceless is excellent, and probably lesser known in North America. My girlfriend and I both enjoyed it very much. It's charming, beautifully shot, well acted, and the PQ is really good. Note that it is a French movie with English subtitles but if that doesn't dissuade you, you'll find quite an enjoyable movie. It's one of my favourite blurays from 2008.

This is a must see. Pacino was in his prime in the 70's. This is one of his best performances. And the film is fantastic too!! One of Sidney Lumet's best!!


ATTICA!! ATTICA!!!

LOVED Baraka and The Fall, beautiful films. Sunshine is obviously one of my favs (see my AV) Haven't seen The Visitor yet though. Added to my queue.
