Best Picture Oscar Noms Lead Blu-ray Releases
By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (March 18, 2013) - This is a big week for new Blu-ray releases with two Best Picture Oscar nominees and a box office smash leading the way.

The Best Picture Oscar nominees? Zero Dark Thirty, the story of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, and Les Miserables, based on the hit Broadway musical. Zero Dark Thirty will be released tomorrow, March 19, and is now available for $22.99 at Amazon. Click:
Zero Dark Thirty for more information.

Les Miserables will be released on Friday, March 22, and is now available for pre-order at Amazon for $19.99. Click
Les Miserables for more information.

The list of new Blu-ray releases includes some other top attractions, too, including the box office smash, The Hobbit, available on both 2D and 3D; Rust and Bone; Katy Perry: Part of Me; This Is 40 (released Friday); and Love For Levon.

But don't forget to take a look at the classic 1973 Terrence Malick film, Badlands, which starred Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek. Based loosely on the Charles Starkweather murder spree across the Midwest in the 1950s, Malick expertly combines beautiful cinematography with a lean but powerful storyline to weave a spell over the viewer. Badelands was the auteur's first film and it's arguably his best thanks to the understated performances form Sheen and Spacek. (Did they really look this young?!)

To order Badlands, the Criterion Collection edition, for $26.86 on Blu-ray, click:
