The Avengers is Out on DVD and Blu-Ray

The Avnegers DVDIt's hard to believe it, but Marvel's "The Avengers" is out on DVD and Blu-Ray.   It seems like this movie was just in theaters.  Oh wait, it was, like, just a few weeks ago. I have a special interest in this movie.  A very good friend of mine worked on the film, and is credited for his work on the Visual Effects team.  To me, that is very, very cool.  I wish I had credit on a blockbuster movie, but that would require me to actually be talented in some aspect of movie making. Anyway, for those of you who don't know what this movie is about:
Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who's who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster.
