Bluray Tuesday is back. This week, our favorite day of the week is super light, which is good since Black Friday is just around the corner. Scream / Shout Factory releases Troll / Troll 2 for the first time on bluray and the first 5,000 come with a bonus film called Best Worst Movie. I'm definitely picking this one up, these are so bad that they are good. I will be re-watching them this week. Biggest main release this week is The Man From U.N.C.L.E, which I haven't heard much about and I'm sure will drop in price soon. The inevitable Hobbit extended edition box set is released today, just in time for the holidays. It's perfect for all those who like the uniform box set with all three films in their collections. The Black Friday ads are out for most major retailers like Target and Best Buy on their respective sites. You can check out all their sales on blurays early.

The journey takes Bilbo on a path through treacherous lands swarming with orcs, goblins and other dangers, not the least of which is an encounter with Gollum (Andy Serkis) and a simple gold ring that is tied to the fate of Middle Earth in ways Bilbo cannot even fathom.
The Desolation Of Smaug: Having survived the first part of their unsettling journey, Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and his companions (Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage) continue east. More dangers await them, including the skin-changer Beorn and the giant spiders of Milkwood. After escaping capture by the dangerous Wood Elves, Bilbo and the dwarves journey to Lake-town and, finally, to the Lonely Mountain, where they face the greatest danger of all: the fearsome dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch).
The Battle Of Five Armies: Having reclaimed Erebor and vast treasure from the dragon Smaug, Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) sacrifices friendship and honor in seeking the Arkenstone, despite Smaug's fiery wrath and desperate attempts by the Hobbit Bilbo (Martin Freeman) to make him see reason. Meanwhile, Sauron sends legions of Orcs in a sneak attack upon the Lonely Mountain. As the fate of Middle Earth hangs in the balance, the races of Men, Elves and Dwarves must decide whether to unite and prevail -- or all die.
