New on DVD & Blu-ray This Week

Most noteworthy this week in the way of new DVD and blu-ray releases, at least in terms of box office success, is definitely the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall.  Skyfall, although not considered perfect, faired pretty well with the expert reviewers and James Bond fans alike.  It, along with all of the new releases this week, will be available at Amazon and elsewhere on February 12, 2013.

Other new releases include The Perks of Being a Wallflower, starring Harry Potter's Emma Watson. While I haven't seen it, I know one of my son's friends enjoyed it enough to make it move onto my 19-year old son's must-see list.

A Disney film called Wreck-It Ralph appears for downloading only this week. If you want to own it on DVD and blu-ray disc you will have to wait until March 5 at which time and in typical Disney fashion, at that time you'll have various choices from the four-disc DVD, blu-ray and digital combination pack to a more simple and affordable DVD.

Called hilarious and heartwarming, the story of Robot and Frank is of a cat burglar who is being overtaken by dementia.  His children want to see him go into a nursing home but he winds up living with a robot who helps him cope with cleaning, cooking, etc. It sounds like an interesting film and is one I would like to see. (Robot and Frank is not available on blu-ray disc.)
 
The Sessions is a biopic that deals with the story of a poet and polio survivor, sexual intercourse and disabled people. It is apparently a story of optimism told with some humour. However, because of its content matter it is of course rated R and not a movie that I would choose to see lightly. Helen Hunt, who we haven't seen for awhile, plays the sex surrogate.
 
Bully is a documentary film about the subject of bullying in schools in the United States.  It tells the story of five children and their families and their experiences with bullying. Tackling an important subject, I expect this film could be both disturbing and thought provoking.
 
Is there a new DVD or blu-ray disc in your future?
 
See you
at the movies!
