This Week on DVD & Blu-ray (01-03-12)

January 3, 2012

It’s the first batch of releases of 2012! Is there anything to get excited about? Well, maybe – that is, if you’re a germaphobe or if you live in an old house with annoying troll things whispering underneath it. In that case, go ahead and check out “Contagion” and “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” and check out reviews for those films, highlighted below. Or if you find yourself with nothing to do some night, you can make it a “Shark Night”. There’s also “The Guard” with Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle, a film I intend to catch up with, which our Sundance correspondent Catina Martinez reviewed early last year (see link to review below). I also plan on catching up with Todd Hayne’s HBO adaptation of “Mildred Pierce” (see trailer below) starring Kate Winslet, GuyPearce, Evan Rachel Wood, and Melissa Leo. 
There ya have it! I gotta get back to playing Sophie’s Choice with my Top Ten list of 2011, as well as catching up with more viewing and reviewing. Enjoy the
