Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: December 11, 2012

It's that time of the week again, so you better have some money ready to feed that collecting need (I've seen movie withdrawals and they aren't pretty). Also, don't forget that  movies make great gifts and since it's getting closer to the official gift exchange holiday, be sure to keep an eye out for any titles that might benefit a friend or family member, or even the good-looking intelligent slacker who wrote this post.. Seth McFarland's Ted is arguably the biggest draw this week, but there are a few more new releases that aren't too shabby. If those don't strike your fancy, maybe a couple of cult classics getting the hi-def treatment?
