Clash of the Titans, if you dare, comes out on Blu-ray this week.

The dog days of summer Blu-ray releases are definitely here. Maybe this is partly due to the relative lack of good movies coming out of the major studios too.

Case in point: Clash of the Titans. Not sure we really needed an update, but since everything from the 80s seems to be coming back these days, Hollywood did. They also decided, of course, that it would make for good 3D in the theater. Only it got widely panned for less-than-stellar 3D post-production conversion.

Well now we get to focus on the 2D, as the Blu-ray disc comes out this week, and not in 3D version quite yet. There’s certainly enough star power, with the likes of Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes adding to the cast, and there’s plenty of mythological action to go around. The DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack and CinemaScope format could provide some home theater punch if you’re looking to kill a couple of hours on a weekend night.

For more traditional 80s action, Rambo: The Complete Collector’s Set arrives on Blu-ray for all the high-def Stallone your theater can handle, plus Lock Up comes out this week too, in case you forgot about that Sly effort.

Also this week, you may want to try Fanboys, about a group of Star Wars-lovin’ buddies and their cross-country adventure to catch a peek at the yet-to-be-released Phantom Menace. A must for Star Wars fans.
