Fargo is the 3rd Coen Brothers film to be released on Blu-Ray to date.  Not much new in the way of special features but who can resist a little 1080P action especially with Roger Deakins behind the camera.  It is available now, check it out on Amazon.

A little over a year since the first DVD and Blu-Ray release of No Country For Old Men comes the new super duper special limited edition.  Now with more DISCS!  If you didn’t buy No Country the first time around now’s your chance.  The DVD edition comes with 3 discs one for the film, one for the special features, and one for a digital copy.  Blu-Ray has 2 discs one for film and special features and a second with a digital copy.  The digital copy allows you to easily put the film on your computer and play it there or on a portable media player.  I did this with my Dark Knight blu-ray and it worked great.  No commentary here but that isn’t terribly surprising.  The Highlights are a 40 minute segment with Brolin and Bardem at an Apple Store event and an hour long Q&A with the Coens and others hosted by Spike Jonze. 

**Update 4/9/09**  Just got my new No Country Blu-ray from Amazon today.  In the “liner notes” is a mail in rebate offer.  It allows you to submit your UPC from the original DVD or Blu-ray release and a UPC from the new Collector’s Edition and get a $10 rebate.  So, they know they’re screwing us but if you’re one of the 10% of people who actually look at the junk they stuff in DVD cases and want to waste 20 minutes filling out the form and gather the needed proof of purchase you can have a fraction of your money back.  Thanks Disney, Miramax, and Paramount Vantage.

I’ll save you sometime though.  The move looks and sounds good on Blu-Ray but it isn’t really necessary for this type of film.  The extras aren’t too exciting either.  If that wasn’t enough to dissuade you from buying it, why not buy it now!
