  • Posted September 5th, 2007 at 08:53 EDT by

Now is the time of year where the leaves are turning yellow, people are returning to school and the number of outdoor activities begin to dwindle. So we've decided to providing a list of the top movie titles appearing on Blu-ray this fall for you to kick back and enjoy.

We have selected one film per genre and explained why it were chosen.

So let us begin with our Action pick for the fall...

::Live Free or Die Hard::
Studio: 20th Century Fox
Rated: PG-13
Release: Nov 20, 2007

Movie Summary:

Internet Terrorists hack the U.S. infrastructure, shutting down the entire nation while stealing billions of dollars. Bruce Willis returns in his roll as John McClane, a NYPD cop who gets caught up being at the wrong place at the wrong time. He must not only save his kidnapped daughter but save the U.S. from being held ransom.

Why we chose this film

If you are a fan of the Die Hard series, Live Free or Die Hard (also known as Die Hard 4.0) will not let you down. This movie is packed with plenty of explosions and gun fights to satisfy any hardcore action junky. Also with Justin Long appearing in the film, there is plenty of comical relief and funny dialogue between his character and Bruce Willis's.

The Blu-ray version of this film will be rated PG-13, and Fox has confirmed that no unrated/uncut edition will be released.. All special edition DVD features will be included, plus D-Box motion sensor capabilities, several high-definition trailers and the exclusive high definition BD-Java multi-level strategy game Black Hat Intercept.

Moving on we have our Family film pick...

Studio: Disney / Buena Vista
Rated: G
Release: Nov 06, 2007

Movie Summary:

A Pixar/Disney collaboration, Ratatouille is a cute "tail" about a rat who dreams of being the greatest chef in Paris. He teams up with a struggling kitchen boy and by working together they take a failing restaurant and return it to its old glory.

Why we chose this film?

You can never go wrong with a Pixar film; especially in high definition! Ratatouille is another great movie with plenty of laughs and a great moral to the story. Being one of the highest grossing films of the summer, this is a must have for your collection.

The Blu-ray version of this flick will have exclusive features including:

· Gusteau's Gourmet Game
· Cine-Explore
· Exclusive short 'Your Friend the Rat'
· Deleted scenes
· Never-before-seen documentary with Brad Bird

Now for our Comedy pick...

Studio: Sony Pictures
Rated: R
Release: Nov 06, 2007

Movie Summary:

A Monty Python parody of Biblical times where a man named Brian is born in Judea 33 A.D amongst false messiahs and Roman rule. The entire Monty Python cast appears in the film poking fun at everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate, crazy prophets, Roman centurions, and even crucifixion.

Why we chose this film?

It's Monty Python, 'nuff said. Ok but really, if you love British humor and don't mind anti-semitic jokes then this movie will have you laughing and quoting lines forever.

The Blu-ray version will include such features as:
· The Story of Brian - A 60-minute documentary
· The Readthrough - Illustrated 110-minute audio recording of the Pythons reading an early version of the film's screenplay
