Lots of new releases hitting shelves this week. I was in my top 3 of the year and one was in my worst 5. I won't tell them what they are and instead go out and rent some of these and decided for yourself. I've seen about 50% of these releases and it is quite a strong week for new DVD's. Although if you had to pick one I'd go for 50/50. Oop did I give it away!
