Mark your calendar, fellas… June 7th is when you’ll be able to snag a copy of the 3D blu-ray rendition of Sports Illustrated’sSwimsuit 2011: The 3D Experience. Now, we can all rationalize this as, “Honey, I want to see all of the exotic location spots that I can take you to one day…”, but don’t expect a lot of love when you come home with this one. Either way, there’s no doubt that the always popular swimsuit issue coming in 3D will make quite a splash.
Of course, they aren’t doing any converting here – the footage is all shot natively in 3D, so expect good quality for your buck here. The shoots take place in Maui, arguably one of the few places in the world that can match the beauty of these swimsuit beauties. Complete with interviews and behind the scenes footage (no dressing room footage, guys…sorry), there’s no doubt that this will make the perfect 3D addition to your man-cave.
Again, June 7th marks the release date, and the 3D Blu-ray will carry a suggested retail price of $19.95. If there’s anything worth seeing in 3D it’s beautiful women, so don’t hesitate when you see it. Let the impulse buy hit you, and think of how you’ll explain to the kids why it was a better buy than Gnomeo and Juliet 3D. Also, fully expect to spend the evening in the man-cave, as the wife may not want to see your face for a few hours…

Cirque du Soleil has taken the world by storm. Through the integration of performance arts and the classic theme of the circus, the performance group is now reaching audiences directly in their living rooms. Cirque du Soleil: Journey of a Man 3D is coming to 3D Blu-ray on June 7th, and there’s no doubt this is going to be a hot commodity. Ian McKellen narrates the haunting performance.
This particular performance tells the tale of a man from birth to adulthood, and each phase is delivered through the stage performance. The incredible light shows and acrobatics that ensue should be fun for the entire family, not to mention a great way to showcase that new 3D TV you just picked up.
The 3D Blu-ray package is listed at $19.95, and with the performances seen in venues across the globe, you know they captured an incredible one here for this disc. Interested in the show, but have never managed to see it? Well, $19.95 is a lot cheaper than a ticket to Cirque du Soleil. Take it from me, but don’t plan on making this a substitute on your next wedding anniversary…she wants the real thing, otherwise you’re gonna be in it deep…

When is a super hero not a super hero? When he doesn’t have any special abilities and his sidekick does all of the dirty work. That’s the tale featured in the popular Green Hornet remake that has hit shelves in 3D Blu-ray. Fans of Seth Rogan will love this flick, but if you’ve found yourself a little Seth-ed out, then maybe you’ll want to take a pass on this one. Because he’s always over the top, you already know what you’re going to get…a lot of screaming and a lot of ridiculous situations.
If you don’t know the tale, Britt Reid is the wealth son of a media mogul. It’s the classic “no good rich kid does right” story, as he seems to rather want to spend time nursing hangovers (or creating them) than actually do anything worthwhile. He teams up with Kato, his loyal sidekick, and they do their part to take down the big-city crimelordChudnofsky.
Now, in regards to the movie….eh, I can take it or leave it, but honestly, I find Seth Rogan hilarious. Granted, I’d like to see him be someone besides Seth Rogan in a movie, but every decent comedian has to endure that. The movie’s plot is a little ridiculous, but again, if you like Seth, you’ll be able to stomach this one. If you’ve been finding him annoying lately, you may want to save yourself the trouble and just go ahead and punch yourself in the face now…not really, but maybe…

Further, there are some surprises in the storyline as deleted scenes offer up a different story regarding the abduction of Milo’s mom. Find out more by combing through the disc, as there’s some Easter Egg action going on as well.

Even as we come down the home stretch for the month of May, there’s no doubt that the 3D Blu-ray titles are starting to get real. Remember when we had to wait around forever for our favorite movies to hit the 3D Blu-ray market? Often times, we were simply buying the standard DVD renditions and purchasing our favorites later on the higher-quality disc. However, things have definitely changed, and we’re getting a feeling that May’s release schedule was only the beginning. We recap what the month brought us, and hope that we’re seeing a permanent changing of the guard in home entertainment.
The Green Hornet hit shelves on May 4th, and was selling for $24.99 on Amazon. Hmm, seems that the prices are starting to stabilize a bit, as well. Gnomeo and Juliet, the Gnome romance that captured the hearts of audiences and critics alike, drops on the 24th. Available on Amazon for $29.99, Disney is making sure that they are getting in on some of the 3D Blu-ray action.
Drive Angry, another installment in the epic ride that we call Nicholas Cage’s career (insert a bit of sarcasm here), is yet another 3D Blu-ray that should get some love. Sure, the plot leaves quite a bit to be desired, but in the end, we’re getting some action, an irritated Nick Cage, and of course, some reasonable babe action. Available on the 31st for $24.99 on Amazon, Drive Angry may not win any Oscars, but it’s likely to be a fun ride.
3D Blu-ray discs seem to be picking up steam in terms of titles. We aren’t having to wait long, these days, for cool content to show off our 3D systems. This has long been a gripe of those that have already made the switch. Look for more to join the movement with so much content hitting shelves.
