Blu-Ray releases: Anna Karenina takes Flight from Wreck-It Ralph

It's not easy to catch everything in the theater these days and oftentimes can be a pain just dealing with the general public, so when something I wanted to see is announced I get a little jazzed.  I almost saw FLIGHT on five different occasions, but it just didn't happen and I was disappointed to miss it.  ANNA KARENINA, on the other hand, was one I wanted to see, but knew I'd never catch in theaters.  And, WRECK-IT RALPH I saw twice, due to the passion of my three year old, and now will see it again probably a hundred times in the next six months. 

With that, we've got dates and specs to share.  Read on.
