Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: November 13, 2012

It's that time of the week again. While this week's crop isn't necessarily anything to be too excited about, there is still an interesting assortment that should lend some escapism on a stressful day. Oliver Stone's Savages and Pixar's Brave are the most notable. As always, there will be some older picks getting the high-def treatment, so be sure to read on for my complete list.
