Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: March 5, 2013

I'm feeling rather uninspired this week, as there is nothing that truly makes me want to shell out some cash on any of these titles for my collection. However, I will finally be able to sit down with Wreck-It Ralph. Voiced by John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, and Jane Lynch, this animated love letter to video games has tickled the imagination of all ages and was recently nominated for Best Animated Feature at this year's Academy Awards. Normally, the Academy's stamp of approval doesn't have the magic ability to make money disappear and insert movies into my Blu-ray player, but Wreck-It Ralph also comes with the praise from my fellow Slackers, which has always carried more weight for me. 

 Head inside to see more picks from this week's release pool.
