The new Smurf movie - called Smurfs: The Lost Village has at least one thing going for it: it's not a sequel to the two live-actions atrocities that came out in the recent years.

Today is the day that The Iron Giant is finally getting a Blu-ray release and you can finally own this masterpiece in stunning HD and watch hours upon hours of wonderful bonus material. Warner Bros. has finally seen the error of their ways and the fact that they gave The Iron Giant such a splendid release, it's cause for celebration. However, as we can scratch one film from the list, this day is also a reminder that there are still many films and TV series that are awaiting a proper Blu-ray release and it's time for the studios to deliver.
As with my previous list, from two years ago, this list applies to US releases.
