New Blu-ray Releases for the Week of January 8th

January 8, 2017 // 0 Comments

A much better week than the abysmal last week. There's several easy things to recommend here. Our pick of the week is Deepwater Horizon, but His Girl Friday is a classic Cary Grant comedy that should be in your collection, and I'll also give a recommendation for The Accountant. You also can't go wrong with XXX: 15th Anniversary Edition or the second season of Mr. Robot. [...]

With that said, you'd be well served to stay away from this week's big release, "Fifty Shades of Grey Unrated Edition." [...]
