Movies & TV Shows New on DVD and Blu-ray

This week there look to be about 100 new DVD & Blu-ray releases coming out on Tuesday, January 10th, 2012.  If you remember, we had a few good titles last week when Justified, and Contagion came to disk.

This week amongst the new DVD & Blu-ray titles are fan-favorite shows like Boardwalk Empire, Primeval, and movies like Killer Elite and Moneyball.  There also seem to be a huge set of new Blu-ray releases of older titles, as the consumer is enticed even farther into the realm of BD players and discs.

Check out what’s new this week:

Boardwalk Empire

Boardwalk Empire Season one on Blu-ray

Starring Steve Buscemi, Michael Pitt and William Hill.

Micro Review:  I love this HBO series and if you’re a cost conscious consumer who doesn’t fess up the extra money for cable pay-channels, but rather, you wait for a series to come to market, then this is what you’ve been waiting for.  Buscemi is classic in this role.  Not classic Buscemi, but classic gangster!

The Green Mile

Green Mile on Blu-ray

This Stephen King short story, brought to life with the help of The Walking Dead‘s Frank Darabont, is an incredibly riveting tale of one special man who is mistakenly put on death row for a crime he did not commit.  But what’s unique about this story isn’t the accidental arrest but rather, what this one single man represents to the small group of people he endears himself too.

Michael Clarke Duncan landed on my radar with this movie role, and of course Tom Hanks just adds a depth of entertainment to most projects he’s in.

If you need the Blu-ray version of this movie, by all means, this is a keep indeed!
