Blu-ray and DVD

DVD/Blu-Ray Round-up 5/15: ALBERT NOBBS, CHRONICLE, THE GREY and more!

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!

There are three big releases this week: Albert Nobbs (which received awards recognition, including a nomination for Glenn Close), Chronicle (which was a sleeper critical hit earlier this year), and The Grey (another reason to love Liam Neeson).

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!
