DVD Picks – January 26, 2010 – Surrogates, Whip It, This is It, and More

There are some changes with this week’s DVD column.  For starters, I’m going to stop ignoring how prominent Blu-Ray has become (i.e. no more “also on Blu-Ray” links).  It is also now going to be more list-like than in previous editions.  Hope you like it.
