New on Blu-ray: Week of May 6, 2014

X-Men Quadriogy Collection

After a brief lull the last two weeks, this week is packed with must-own hits new to Blu-ray. Prep for this summer’s blockbuster X-Men sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past  with all four X-Men flicks in one set with the X-Men Quadriogy Collection or grab the last two entries in the series,  in the X-Men: First Class and X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Superheroes not your thing? Cult classics Escape From New York and Legend, get the Blu-ray treatment, but we recommenced avoiding Legend since it’s the directors cut and the score is auditory torture. There are also sci-fi trilogies Robocop / Robocop 2 / Robocop 3 and Predator / Predator 2 / Predators, both of which come in 3-disc sets. “Get to da choppa!”

Steelbook collectors can pick up Jurassic Park and the Bourne trilogy, including The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Ultimatum, all of which include the Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy with UltraViolet.

Finally, if you’re looking for a laugh there’s the drop-dead funny Weekend at Bernie’s or the deadpan Blazing Saddles, which celebrates its 40th Anniversary. Oh, and if you were a young boy growing up in the ’80s, you’ll remember the lewd, rite of passage flicks Revenge of the Nerds and Bachelor Party, both of which are worth picking up for old times sake.
