It's another really slow week for DVD / Blu-ray releases with a total of one first run release of note. There are a few other smaller releases, as well as catalog titles, etc., The biggest release of the week is also arguably the best, Unstoppable on Blu-ray. And while the release date is bizarre, Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol on Blu-ray is also worth picking up. Also of note is Despicable Me, which came out a couple months ago, but the Blu-ray Combo Pack just arrived last week.

Chaplin came out in 1992 and while it never really found an audience and only earned mixed reviews, it did earn Robert Downey, Jr. his first Oscar nomination. A few years ago, the film was released on a 15th anniversary DVD, but I wasn't able to acquire a screener. So when I was given a chance to review the Blu-ray release, I jumped at it. But how well does this movie work as a biopic, or just as entertainment? And just as importantly, how well does it stand up on Blu-ray?
