DVD/Blu-Ray Round-up 5/8: THE VOW, CHUCK, UNDERWORLD AWAKENING 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!

This weeks biggest releases are The Vow, Underworld Awakening, The Big C and Chuck! The Vow was a big hit when it was in theaters – starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams trying to recapture the magic from The Notebook. Underworld Awakening is part of the popular Underworld franchise, so fans of the series will want to pick that up. The shows The Big C and Chuck have huge fanbases, hitting very different demographics.

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!
