New on DVD & Blu-ray: 'Skyfall,' 'Gossip Girl: Season 6,' more
Daniel Craig just keeps getting better and better as James Bond, doesn't he? In his third turn as the British spy, 007 has to take on a creepy and dastardly villain played by Javier Bardem while MI6 faces all sorts of problems, including secret agents having their covers blown and the fall from grace of M (Dame Judi Dench). While the gadgets are getting more toned down in Bond films lately, the action isn't, and one thing's for sure: "Skyfall" is a top-notch action flick. (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $39.99)
