DVD Releases 1/17/2012

Posted: January 16, 2012 in Movies

Tuesday is new release day for DVD’s across the U.S. and tomorrow is no different.

A quick rundown on how I rate movies – I take the Rotten Tomatoes review score and the IMDB.com user rating and combine the two into a 1-10 high fives rating.  Example; Contraband has a 49% on RT and a 6.9 rating on IMDB, 49% = 4.9 rating + the 6.9 rating/2 = 5.9 IHYLT high fives (rounded up to 6).

Here are this week’s new releases:
