New Releases, week of 12/29/12: Boxing Day Edition


It’s the day after Christmas, and I’m sure many of us are getting over jetlag and mild hangovers. Some of us have returned to work and are simply playing Free Cell until it’s time to punch out. (Do people still play Free Cell? Are punch cards even a thing? Whatever happened to Jack Parr on The Tonight Show?)

Both Christmas and New Year’s have thrown off the DVD and Blu-ray new releases for a bit, which means the Mayans were right. Pickings are a little slim, but there are still a few things to consider if you’re trying to find a last-minute Boxing Day gift. The biggest release this week is probably The Room on Blu-ray, from acclaimed auteur Tommy Wiseau.

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost is out this week, and ditto a re-release of In Search of Dracula, an old documentary on vampires with Christopher Lee. For your fun-loving wrastling fan, WWE has released a compilation of their best pay-per-view matches from 2012, including Triple H vs. The Undertaker, John Cena vs. The Rock, Daniel Bryan vs. CM Punk, and me vs. Barry Horowitz.

Next week Looper comes out, so that’s cool. I’m really just filling space at this point. See what’s new on DVD and Blu-ray after the cut, and join us in celebrating Boxing Day.
