DVD Releases for March 31st, 2009 - Part II

March 30th, 2009

It's a big list this week with nearly 50 DVDs here (including a few that are late reviews). This includes this year's big Oscar winner, Slumdog Millionaire, which is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray.

Limited Releases are Looking for Something Special

November 21st, 2008
