Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: January 8, 2013

What do Dax Shepard, Tim Burton, and Judge Dredd have in common? Nothing that I'm really aware of, besides the fact their new films are releasing on Blu-ray this week and appear to be the cream of the crop. The redundant Jennifer Lawrence thriller that no one cares about/will be forgotten within the month, House at the End of the Street, is also making its home video debut.
