We're not going to pretty it up for you, today is probably not the most exciting week in Blu-ray releases. Warner is making an early push with their holiday titles and offering a 4-pack including A Christmas Story, Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and The Polar Express. If there's any saving grace, it's that Polar Express is presented in 3D. Yeah. Each disc includes a set of four 3D glasses so you can appreciate Tom Hanks' freaky CGI zombie stare in a whole new dimension. We haven't tested it, but the feature sounds pretty great. Other releases for the week...
