Blu-Ray/DVD Round-up 2/12: SKYFALL, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and more!

This week we have some great releases: Skyfall, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Sessions, Bully and The Man with the Iron Fists are my top picks! Skyfall’s theme song, performed by Adele, has gotten plenty of love along with the movie. The Perks of Being a Wallflower had a limited release and deserved much more love during this awards season. It was a lovely adaptation of the novel. The Sessions scored Helen Hunt an Oscar nomination, while Bully is a film that everyone needs to see. Even The Man with the Iron Fists has Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, which is enough to want to see it due to curiosity.

Here’s a clip from Skyfall:

And as usual, please don’t hesitate to share what Blu-Rays and DVDs you’ve bought recently, or plan to buy this week, in the comments section.

 

 

skyfall dvd

  • Skyfall, (starring Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Naomie Harris, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Helen McCrory, Berenice Marlohe, Ben Whishaw, and Ola Rapace). Here’s our review of the film. It’s being called the best Bond film yet, did you guys think so? Also don’t miss our review of the Blu-Ray release. It’s available on Blu-Ray and DVD at Amazon. 
  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower, (starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, Paul Rudd, Nina Dobrev, Mae Whitman, Melanie Lynskey, Dylan McDermott, Kate Walsh, and Zane Holtz). This is one of the films that was amazing and yet not nearly enough people saw it – probably because of its limited release. The cast did a tremendous job in the film. It is definitely Logan Lerman‘s best role. It’s available on Blu-Ray and DVD at Amazon.

the sessions

  • The Sessions, (starring John Hawkes, Helen Hunt, William H. Macy, Moon Bloodgood, Annika Marks, W. Earl Brown, Blake Lindsley, and Adam Arkin). Brilliant performances by John Hawkes and Helen Hunt, who received an Oscar nomination. It’s available on Blu-Ray and DVD at Amazon.
  • Bully, a movie that shows just what bullying is in today’s society and how it effects people. It’s a heavy subject and I believe everyone needs to see this film. Here’s our review and it’s available on Blu-Ray and DVD at Amazon.
  • The Man with the Iron Fists, (starring Russell Crowe, Jamie Chung, Lucy Liu, Zhu Zhu, Dave Bautista, Cung Le, Rick Yune, Chia Hui Liu, Mary Christina Brown, and Jin Auyeung). Now this honestly didn’t get great reviews, but I find it hard not to want to add to your Russell Crowe film collection. Also, The RZA directed it…that’s so awesome. Here’s our review of the film.
