This Week in Blu-rays

Josef Krebs surveys a new batch of high-def releases, with locales ranging from the City of Light (Midnight in Paris) to Bogotá (Colombiana) and from Mississippi (Straw Dogs) to Florida (Dolphin Tale).





This Year in Christmas Music

Brett Milano rounds up holiday CDs: Would you rather be Under the Influence of Christmas with the Grip Weeds or Under the Mistletoe with Justin Bieber? Perhaps you’d prefer to spend An Appalachian Christmas (with Mark O’Connor), A Jersey Boys Christmas, or A Very She & Him Christmas. Also caroling: Tony Bennett, Buck Owens, and many more.
