It's that time again! New blurays are released today to add to our growing collections. First up is Ready Player One based on the novel of the same name. I've heard mixed reviews on this one and I have not read the book but do look forward to checking the movie out. Best Buy will carry an exclusive steelbook for this and Target's exclusive comes with a bonus disc with more features. Vestron Video releases number 15 and 16 in their Collector's Edition line with Dagon and Beyond Re-Animator. Both released for the first time on Bluray and must buys for me, so far I own the whole series of Vestron's releases and they sure look nice together. Scream Factory releases John Carpenter's In The Mouth of Madness today. This releases comes with a new scan, features and slipcover artwork. Slasher Video brings us Streets of Vengeance, the premise of which sounds cool and may be a blind buy for me this week. Rounding out the week is Supergirl (1984) for the first time on Bluray, The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey from Arrow Video and comedy thriller The Con is On. So what will you buy, rent or skip this week? Let us know in the comments. Until next Week!

But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
