Shutter Island Blu-ray DiscFor this week’s Blu-ray Monday we’re giving away a copy of critically acclaimed Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island.

The film tells the story of U.S. marshal Teddy Daniels, assigned to investigate a missing patient from Shutter Island, a high security prison for the criminally insane. As you would expect, not everything is as it seems…

    I think my ideal director/actor pairing would be Martin Scorcese and Chris Pine. It would be an interesting combo anyway.

    Gotta stick with the great combo of John Carpenter and Kurt Russell. The Thing, Escape From New York, Big Trouble In Little China. I rest my case 🙂

  12. 13 Melanie de la Garde July 30, 2010 at 12:24 pm

    Matt Damon and Tom hanks as director the ultimate talented duo. Doesn’t hurt that they are good looking too. Twitter I’d. Mel19811

    Michael Haneke and Arnold Schwarznegger. It’s an Austrian thing.

  14. 15 Cheryl W. July 30, 2010 at 3:14 am

    I would love to see Tim Burton directing Jim Carrey. Something dark, yet whimsical.

  15. 16 Natasha Nicolson July 29, 2010 at 11:47 pm

    Daniel Day-Lewis & David Lynch.
    That would be quite the mind-bendingly intense combination.

  23. 24 Caroline Gale July 28, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    Baz Luhrman and Leo diCaprio – Romeo and Juliet was sublime and I think their Alexander would have been brilliant if it could have got off the ground.

  24. 25 Sandy July 28, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    Rob Zombie and Reese Witherspoon..the sublime and rediculous. I would love to see if he could make cuter than cute Reese scare me.

  25. 26 MN July 28, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    David Fincher & Morgan Freeman

    Se7en is without a doubt one of the best movies ever, I would love for these two to collaborate again on a future film. Fincher’s already got a great pairing with Brad Pitt though – Fight Club anyone?! Twitter account=MP26Pro

    Hmmm Tough question.
    I guess I would say Christian Bale & Michael Bay

  32. 33 Geri July 28, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    Kathryn Bigelow directing Angleina Jolie. I have always under-rated Jolie because of the celeb thing, but she’s actually very good and a female director might bring out more.

  33. 34 Mindee Larsen July 28, 2010 at 12:35 am

    Johnny Depp & Steven Spielberg 🙂

  34. 35 Diane July 27, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    Spielberg, Bruckheimer, Burton and Favreau

  45. 46 Paul Byron July 26, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    I’d like Michael Bay to try something in the classic literature range. Pride and Prejudice with Cate Blanchett but with big guns and explosions?

  46. 47 Rebecca Jahnke July 26, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    Spielberg and John Travolta! Then again anyone with John Travolta would be awesome!!@hairgirl1966

  47. 48 Tracy P July 26, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    The Thing (1982)
    Big Trouble In Little China (1986)

  51. 53 chris swan July 26, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    I like Steven Spielberg and Robert DiNero I love both of them so they would be good together.

  52. 54 Raul - @Vengeful_ July 26, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    My dream team would consist of either Martin Scorcese or George Lucas as director, Steven Spielberg as producer, Tom Hanks as leading role and Leonardo DiCaprio as supporting. With the industries best how can you go wrong?

    Some alternates as leading roles could be Harrison Ford or Kevin Costner.

  53. 55 Di Childs July 26, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    Quentin Tarantino directing my favourite actors, Drew Barrymore, Leonardo diCaprio, Christian Bale and Christina Ricci. Now there’s an interesting mix!

  54. 56 Raul - @Vengeful_ July 26, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    My ideal team would be, Lucas as director, Spielberg (as producer), and as an actor either Harrison Ford or Tom Hanks. They ruled the 80’s and 90’s.

    If we were talking people more current I’d pick Leonardo Dicaprio, paired with any director as he’s one of the most versatile actors of today

  55. 57 Vanessa July 26, 2010 at 1:04 pm

    David Fincher and Jodie Foster – one of my favourite directors and my favourite actress. They’ve already done Panic Room together, I’d love to see them work together again.

    Of those already working together, I think Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale are an excellent team.

  56. 58 Daniel Scales July 26, 2010 at 12:55 pm


    J.J.Abrams & Wayne Knight, just because it’s the strangest combination I could think off. Could you say no to that face:
