Criterion Collection Blu-ray thoughts 7-3-2014

I bought a few more Criterion Collection movies on Blu-ray recently. The company puts out important classic and contemporary films. I opted for some classic films.

To Be or Not To Be is a classic movie with Jack Benny and Carol Lombard. (She died in a plane crush before the film was released.) They star as a Polish husband and wife acting team who get involved in a plot to protect the Polish resistance. It is regarded as Benny’s best movie. Ernst Lubitsch directed.

The Beatles stared as fictional versions of themselves in A Hard Day’s Night. They are fun and the music is good. ┬áIt is a fun look at them and the passion they inspired. The movie takes place after their appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. ┬áRichard Lester directed.

I might pick up another two or three Criterion Collection movies this month.
