All this week’s new DVD releases hover between tiers 4 and 6, which is pretty much synonymous with that phrase we all throw around: “Meh, looks alright, but I’ll wait for the DVD”. Well, the DVDs are here so get watching! Surprisingly, given the mediocre reviews it got, Iron Man 2 is the week’s strongest new arrival.
