Blu-ray Releases: March 6, 2012

This week is crowded with videogames including giants like Mass Effect 3 and MLB 12: The Show, so it’s going to take something special on Blu-ray to distract us from gaming. There’s a gem on this list that may actually spin in my PS3 before the week is over.

Holy Grail!! There is a must-buy Blu-ray on this list and it will distract me from any videogame on any day (well, maybe that’s a stretch). I’m speaking of none other than Monty Python and the Holy Grail. If you appreciate comedy and haven’t seen this film, please do yourself a favor and check it out immediately. It’s easily one of the best comedies ever made.
