Kevin has now watched The Tree of Life more than five times and can't wait for more and he's recommending you purchase the recently released Blu-ray, click on through to find out why...
I hadn't seen any of Kaneto Shindo's films before pushing play on Criterion's Blu-ray release of Kuroneko, the director's 1968 supernatural horror about two spirits in the bamboo forest that have been feasting on the throats of unsuspecting samurai.

Kevin sits down and endures Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on Blu-ray and comes away unscathed, but does he recommend you buy it for yourself?
