"Swing Vote" (Blu-ray)
The story of George W. Bush's trail to the White House is chronicled by Oliver Stone, as he has in JFK, and Nixon.
From his college days at Yale in the 1960's, he was a beer guzzling fraternity boy who failed at every job his fatherÂ obtained for him, including working in aÂ sporting goods store, oil rig, investmentÂ firm, a ranch hand in Arizona, and finally the Air National Guard.
He became Governor of Texas, while the muchÂ smarter brother Jeb took the same job in Florida.
He tried hard to please his father, but never seemed to get the approval he wanted so badly.
When he became President, the 9/11 disaster sent his approval ratings through the roof, but he squandered that approval with two wars that are still with us into the next Presidential Administration.

Josh Brolin does an incredible job portraying a president who just didn't seem very interested in what he was doing, and didn't realize the effects that such a catastrophic presidency could have on the nation.
The image is very sharp, and the DTS-HD Master Audio picks up Bush's crunching away at Fritos very clearly.
These include the Director's Commentary, Dangerous Dynasty: The Bush Legacy, The Making of, Deleted Scenes, and No Stranger to Controversy.
