Name: Austin Danger Powers. Sex: Yes, please!

Got a big one here today you guys and girls. Just go ahead and play the music in order to get yourself in the mood.
That's right, Blu-Rays number 3, 4, and 5 are from the Mike Myers Austin Powers Collection: Shagadelic Edition (Loaded with Extra Mojo!) As you can imagine this box set comes with all three Austin Powers movies: International Man of Mystery, The Spy Who Shagged Me, and Goldmember. The last time I saw these movies was when I was just a young lad and let me tell you, they are just as funny now as they were back then! I've only watched the first movie on Blu-ray and I already catch myself quoting it all the time. I'm excited to watch the other two today and tomorrow. 

The Blu-rays come in a cardboard sleeve case with Austin Powers on one side and Dr. Evil on the other with the British flag in the background. The movies are in thin Blu-ray cases which is kind of lame, but they need to do it in order to keep the sleeve from being too big.

The first movie was probably the least impressive Blu-ray I have seen so far, but I'm guessing that's because it is because it is the oldest movie in Blu-ray that I have seen so far being made in 1997. (I was only 5 years old!) The movie still looks way better than it did for the VHS and DVD releases. In fact what separates the first film from it's DVD and VHS releases is that for the first time, we are able to watch the movie in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio. I was worried that Mike Myer's costumes might look fake in HD but thankfully that isn't a problem. The extra mojo that the box refers to are the special features which include commentaries tracks by Myers and the director Jay Roach and each film contains deleted scenes and alternate endings which are always awesome.
  
Amazon had this set on sale for $17.00 for the last three weeks which I couldn't pass up. They have since bumped it up to $30.00 to which I would recommend that you pass on it unless you are a big fan of the movies. I am really proud of this purchase and welcome it with open arms into my infant collection of Blu-rays.


Last, but not least I wanted to thank all of my followers. Didn't expect to get 10 followers let alone 60+! I am enjoying the hell out of posting these as well as keeping up with my followers' posts. This community is full of amazing and interesting people.

  2. I love these movies; I grew up with them (its surprising how many young kids grew up with these movies yet its designed for more adult audiences) and they never loose their charm.

    ReplyDelete
  54. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

    I want a blu-ray player (or a PS3) so bad now. This is one of my favorite comedy movies and I love the cast overall. I love that it's a parody without being overly heavy upon another movie's plot to push it's own forward.

    If I ever get a Blu-ray player, this will definitely be at the top of my list.

  55. I'm envious. Definitely going to be picking this up.
