9/13/2011 – ‘Thor,’ ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Citizen Kane’
Pick of the Week
Chris Hemsworth stars as the mighty God of Thunder, Marvel Comics' latest superhero to leap from the four-color page to the big screen in an epic fantasy adventure. Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior, is banished from the realm of Asgard and cast down to Earth as punishment for recklessly reigniting an ancient war. Forced to live among humans, he is befriended by a young woman, Jane Foster. But after a dangerous villain from his world unleashes the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth, the hammer-wielding Thor will learn what it takes to be a true hero in order to save mankind.

Star Wars: The Complete Saga
What more can be said about Star Wars? George Lucas' epic space fantasy changed cinema and popular culture forever. And now you can revisit entire Saga in high definition. Star Wars makes its Blu-ray debut with a comprehensive nine-disc collection, packed with an unprecedented 40+ hours of special features, including never-before-seen content sourced from the Lucasfilm archives. The set marks the first time ever that the full six-movie saga is available as one complete collection. But if you're a fan who likes to debate the merits of the original movies versus the prequels, Episodes I-III and IV-VI will also be available as distinct trilogy collections.
