So if you read my weekly new release theatrical post, then you know Small Town Crime just came out this week in a limited fashion. So far the reviews have been excellent and it comes near me, I’ll certainly take the trip and do a review for TNM. The film has actually been able to rent for two months, so why would you care about this Blu-ray? Well besides the obvious picture enhancement that Blu-ray brings… check out those features. If this is destined to become a favorite for many, the extra scenes, making-of featurettes, and three… yes three commentaries make an amazing package! Some are going to wonder why their favorite film doesn’t get this treatment. The only place to preorder at this time seems to be Best Buy.
