Blu-ray and DVD


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 weeks big releases are True Blood: The Complete Fourth SeasonWe Need to Talk About Kevin, and Coriolanus. True Blood is one of HBO’s most watched and buzzed about shows. We Need to Talk About Kevin garnered award nominations for Tilda Swinton and had a strong showing in the box office despite being in such limited release. In Coriolanus, Ralph Fienness shines and this was sorely underseen while in theaters.

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!
