There we have folks, another week for the ol' movie collection. I'm fairly impressed with the overall selection, as there are plenty of titles to choose from. Not sure if I'm sold on anything just yet though. Guess I'll wait and see what happens to the prices in the near future.  

Check back next week fore more Blu-Ray and DVD releases.  As always, keep watching!
