Notable Nostalgic Blu-ray Releases May 5th - May 11th 2013

This edition of NNBR features: Steve McQueen and a gaggle of POWs in The Great Escape, Morgan Freeman in the The Shawshank Redemption because... he's in everything, and a few Wise Guys in GoodFellas.

1.) The Great Escape (1963) | Blu-ray Release Date: May 7th, 2013

In 1943, the Germans opened Stalag Luft North, a maximum-security prisoner-of-war camp, designed to hold even the craftiest escape artists. In doing so, however, the Nazis unwittingly assembled the finest escape team in military history who worked on what became the largest prison breakout ever attempted. Based on a true story.

2.) The Shawshank Redemption (1994) | Blu-ray Release Date: May 7th, 2013

Framed for murder, upstanding banker Andy Dufresne begins a new life at Shawshank prison, where he slowly comes to be admired by the other inmates -- including an older lifer named Red -- for his integrity and unquenchable sense of hope.

3.) GoodFellas (1990) | Blu-ray Release Date: May 7th, 2013

From Nicholas Pileggi's true-life bestseller Wiseguy, GoodFellas explores the criminal life like no other movie. Directed and co-written by Martin Scorsese, it was judged 1990's Best Picture by the New York, Los Angeles and National Society of Film Critics and named to the American Film Institute's Top-100 American Film List. Electrifying performances abound, and from a standout cast that includes Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco and Paul Sorvino. Joe Pesci walked off with the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award. It "bristles with passion, wit and style" and endures as "an American classic" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone).

What man wouldn't want to wake up with a gun in his face?
