Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: September 18, 2012

Welcome back! This week you can look forward to a diverse crop of titles that are sure to appeal to many tastes. Like always, I personally pick the movies that stand out, so you don't have to do the research. Some weeks are slow for newer releases, and while this week doesn't necessarily show anything that could be classified as a powerhouse (to some), nevertheless still has some critically accepted gems.

Hit the jump for this week's releases!
