    “Going the Distance”
    Far funnier and easier to take than most films of its kind, if it's your romcom-loving significant other's turn to pick the flick, and s/he drops this one on you, count your blessings that Katherine Heigl doesn't have a movie out. Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, read our full review and watch the trailer

    “Knight & Day”
    In a summer movie season that was loaded with duds and disappointments, this Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action-romcom at least lived up to its promise, as modest as that may be. Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, read our full review and watch the trailer

    “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”
    This new version falls well short of reaching its potential, considering the ingredients at its disposal. If only Nic Cage had tried a little harder and director John Turteltaub a little less so. Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, read our full review and watch the trailer

    The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
    This film has plenty of issues as, but let's give it it's due, the "Twi-Hards" clearly loved "Eclipse," applauding the opening credits and then cheering and sighing right up to the very end. Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, read our full review and watch the trailer

    “Valhalla Rising”
    From director Nicolas Winding Refn ("Bronson") and starring Mads Mikkelsen ("Casino Royale"), it's the story of a one-eyed mute warrior in a fight for his life and freedom in the year 1000 A.D.. Now available on DVD, watch the trailer
