Here are Geek Soul Brother’s top picks for DVDs that came out this week. I selected items that nerds and geeks would enjoy, including some interesting and classic stuff. All links and images bring you to Amazon. I think the best deal is the CHRISTOPHER NOLAN DIRECTORS COLLECTION, – 7 BLU-RAY DISC SET. At least it’s a deal if you don’t own The Batman films and Inception on Blu-Ray already. But it would make a great nerd gift for somebody.

Deliverance [Blu-ray] (1972)
In the unfamiliar Appalachian backwoods, a weekend of male bonding for four inexperienced campers turns into a gut-wrenching fight for survival against the merciless forces of nature and the brutality of man. Their only escape is a terrifying canoe ride down the raging rapids of the Chattooga River.
Perseus (Sam Worthington) just wants to settle down and do a little fishing with his son. Unfortunately, Zeus (Liam Neeson) arrives to tell his son that the end of everything is right around the corner if Perseus doesn’t help him defeat an even bigger threat, Perseus’s grandfather Chronos, whom Hades (Ralph Fiennes), god of the dead, has conspired to release from an underworld prison.
DVD VERSION Wrath of the Titans
The Artist is a love letter and homage to classic black-and-white silent films. The film is enormously likable and is anchored by a charming performance from Jean Dujardin, as silent movie star George Valentin. In late-1920s Hollywood, as Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion, he makes an intense connection with Peppy Miller, a young dancer set for a big break.
