The Queen (BLU-RAY)

Helen Mirren’s performance is haunting and truly was well-deserving of her Oscar.  Unfortunately, the rest of the movie has all the charm of a made-for-TV movie presented on BBC.  But, as I always say, I am not here to review the movie, just the presentation itself as those of you that are lookin...
