Blu-ray and DVDMovies


It’s that time again! Another weekly DVD/Blu-Ray Roundup!  Here are the new releases for the week and my opinion on whether you should Skip It! Rent It! or Buy It!

This week has two really big releases which are The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Rooney Mara, who took on the lead role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, received both a Golden Globes and Oscar nomination for her outstanding performance in the film. Gary Oldman, who took on the lead role in Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy received an Oscar nomination for his brilliant performance in the film.

And as usual please don’t hesitate to share what DVDs and Blu-Rays you’ve bought recently, or plan to buy this week, in the comments.  Let everyone know what you think should be bought or skipped!
