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!

The big releases this week are definitely Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Entourage: The Complete Eighth and Final Season. Sherlock Holmes is one of Robert Downey Jr.’s best roles, he’s a fabulous Sherlock and Entourage is one of the biggest shows that has ever hit television, it was loved by many!
