One of the best films of the year is finally available on DigitalHD and Home Video.

Zero Dark Thirty Blu-ray review!

Zero Dark Thirty Blu-ray Review

One of the biggest and most controversial movies of the year is Zero Dark Thirty from Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker).  The movie’s production caused quite a stir from the conservative media (what doesn’t get their panties in a bunch?) when it was revealed that the CIA was providing Bigelow’s team unprecedented access to information regarding the killing of American enemy number one Osama Bin Laden.
