Blu-ray Releases: January 17, 2012

Criterion is known for the meticulous care they take in providing the highest possible quality audio and video which of course is a perfect marriage with the Blu-ray technology in my opinion. As an avid collector of all things Criterion during the DVD era (wow, that sounds weird), I’ve been anxiously awaiting some of their releases on Blu-ray.

That being said, I’m extremely pleased with the list of new Blu-ray releases for the week of January 17, 2012.
