DVD Picks – July 6, 2010 – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, A Single Man, Brooklyn’s Finest and More

This is probably one of the few times that I have made a foreign-language film my top pick of the week, but I have to say that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is well worth the recommendation.  This releases comes just in time for the release of The Girl Who Plays with Fire, which comes out on Friday.  On to the picks.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

My Thoughts: A very good film that’s on par with North American thrillers.

A Single Man [Blu-ray]
A Single Man
Blu-Ray – $27.99 (CAN), $23.99 (US)

Brooklyn's Finest [Blu-ray]
