RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: The Beaver, TrollHunter, and Win Win

This week on Home Video, we've got an interesting mix of smaller films -- some good, some not as good -- and thankfully, none of them are outright stinkers.

Lastly, we've got the cult favorite Swingers on Blu-ray and a couple of films from a highly acclaimed Korean director. Click through to read about this week's releases!More…
