Here is our selection of new Blu-Ray weekly releases, including our Top 3 picks for each week. Please note, we only post in this section when we think there are worthy releases for that week, focusing on foreignindie movies and works (sometimes TV shows). This means we usually skip big movies you can read about everywhere and weeks that don’t offer interesting releases.
