As September draws to a close, the first Blu-ray slate for the new month brings us two great family classics refreshed and (some would say needlessly) converted to 3D, plus a newer 3D animated film that probably won’t be remembered six months from now, much less revisited decades hence. Oh, and because it’s October, you might see a few scary movies in here too.
Zombies and superheroes – it feels like modern audiences will never get tired of either. Last week delivered a big zombie epic to Blu-ray, and this week brings us the first of this year’s many superhero spectacles. I’ll admit that I’m as guilty as anyone of buying into these things, but… I don’t know… isn’t it time for something new?
Recent defections by former 3D content providers like ESPN and the BBC paint a dreary picture for 3D content in the home. However, to conclude that home 3D is dead ignores some important facts, and now is as good a time as any to take a much-needed deeper look into the state of 3D.
It’s time to trek through the stars once again. This week’s high-def releases bring us a curious mix of intrepid space explorers and supernatural serial killers. Read all about them in today’s Blu-ray roundup.

Which one do you think will be more obnoxiously overwrought? My money’s on the Luhrmann.
