Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: January 22, 2013

Not a whole lot going on in terms of mainstream titles this week, with the exception of two that made this list, but that is okay, because it's nice to focus on indie and B-level fare sometimes. Those of you who missed out on End of Watch or didn't ever get a chance with The Paperboy, will now have the opportunity of checking those out in the comfort of home. As is usual, there will be a cult classic or two getting the hi-def treatment, but you'll have to head inside to see what made it in this week's post.
