Shame Gets a Blu Ray Release Date

One of our favorite films of the year Shame is finally coming to Blu Ray! While I know that we all rushed out to the art house theaters to see the controversial drama, it’s exciting to finally bring it home. One strange bit of info that comes along with this news is that you will only be able to purchase Shame on combo pack Blu Ray. Is the time here when the DVD is obsolete? Blu Rays are now reasonably priced and who doesn’t want to see this film in all it’s uncompressed epicness? Either way, Shame is a must add to your Blu Ray collection!
