Late one night, Los Angeles private investigator, Ned Cruz gets a visit from a recently paroled Russian boxer with an intriguing job offer: find Lexie, his missing girlfriend-and the 30-million dollar stash of diamonds she's hiding. As Detective Cruz sets out to find her, the clues send him into the city's seediest corners, from a Hollywood action star with a dirty little secret, to an enterprising porn producer who takes a personal interest in his own work, and a kinky waitress with an unusual fetish for particle physics. Lexie proves to be as elusive as she is beautiful and Cruz becomes obsessed with finding her. With time running out, Cruz discovers the trail leads to reclusive billionaire, and his physicist, intent on recreating The Big Bang underneath the New Mexico desert. Tailed by a trio of cops also looking to find the missing diamonds, and with the body count piling up, Cruz soon realizes that what appeared to be a standard missing person's case is anything but, and could quite possibly bring about the end of the world as we know it.

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for May 24th, 2011

May 24th, 2011

While we have two first run releases coming out this week, the number one seller according to is a specialty release, and the bulk of the interesting titles are Blu-ray catalog releases. Granted, one of the first run releases nearly hit $100 million at the box office, but this is still a really bad sign in terms of overall sales. As far as the best of the best, that's a race between The Kids in the Hall: Complete Series Megaset and Platoon on Blu-ray. I'm going with the former for Pick of the Week, but make sure to check the price, as buying Death Comes to Town and the old Megaset might be cheaper. More...
