The Rocketeer Blu-ray and X-Men: First Class Blu-ray News

According to Amazon, THE best comic book film (in my humble opinion) is finally slated to hit Blu-ray on December 13th. I am, of course, referring to the 1991 gem “The Rocketeer.” No specs have been released yet, but hopefully there will be some extra features. As you may recall, the DVD release had nothing more than a trailer.

On the subject of comic book films, I thought I should remind folks that “X-Men: First Class” is out on Blu-ray and DVD this Friday, September 9th. In my eyes, this is far and away the best film of 2011 thus far. If you haven’t seen it, run out and buy it Friday.

Eddie Murphy To Host 2012 Oscars

It’s official. Eddie Murphy has been hired on to host the Feb. 26, 2012 Academy Awards Ceremony. After the fiasco that was the 2011 show, this seems like a smart move. Rather than experimenting with hosts ala James Franco and Anne Hathaway, it makes sense to get a comedic legend like Eddie Murphy to host the 84th Oscars.
