What to use to make blu-ray screenshots?

I'm starting to write movie reviews and I plan on reviewing some of the Vinegar Syndrome and Scream Factory blu-rays. What is the easiest way to make screenshots? I planned on grabbing an external blu-ray drive for my laptop, but that's been a nightmare trying to read reviews and decide on one. I was hoping to not spend a ton, but there's either $50 junk, or ones that are over $100. I'd like to spend less than a hundred since I'm only really going to be skipping through movies to make screenshots, I don't plan on burning blu-rays or watching them on a laptop. So I'm looking for recommendations on a good drive, or any other ideas from anyone who frequently makes blu-ray screenshots.

There may be some video player that allows it, but generally you can't capture a Blu-ray screenshot without breaking encryption which we don't discuss here.

Does PrintScreen work?

Oh, well if something like that can't be discussed, can any reviewers here share how they get screenshots for their reviews?
