This week’s latest Blu-ray reviews, a look at new releases from December 31, including: Looper and Premium Rush. Plus, reviews for titles available on January 8: Dredd, Frankenweenie, and Smash: Season One.

Bullets fly in the drama, The Bang Bang Club, which arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this week and tells the story of a group of photographers in Apartheid South Africa. Other new releases include the terrible action film Priest, starring Paul Bettany; and Demolition Man on Blu-ray.
