Blu-ray and DVD

DVD/Blu-Ray Round-up 6/26: THE ARTIST, MIRROR MIRROR, 21 JUMP STREET, MEET THE BROWNS 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 week there are some big time releases! The Artist which had an amazing awards season run last year nabbing Best Film and Best Actor awards as well as many other nominations and wins. Mirror Mirror was an unexpected surprise hit. 21 Jump Street was definitely a hilarious film with a great surprise appearance in the film by a very well known cast member of the old 21 Jump Street show.

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!

Buy It!
