DVD Picks – April 20, 2010 – Avatar, The Lovely Bones, Crazy Heart, and More

This week the big release is undoubtedly James Cameron’s Avatar, which has an unusual Thursday release date.  A word of warning that this is a feature-less bareboned release and a Special Edition is expected to be released later this year.  On to the picks.
