Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
The latest in crazy adventure movies, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs offers a world where weather becomes food, where snowball fights morph into ice cream battles. In his review, Todd Gilchrist wrote: "co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have adapted Ron and Judi Barrett's kids book into a true larger-than-life tale, creating a world that scarcely resembles anything that could or would happen, and manages to be all the more exciting because of it." Buy it on Blu-ray or DVD.

The Final Destination
In this formulaic fourth installment, once again: a premonition helps save a group of people, only for them to then die one by one in grotesque ways. Except this time, it's in 3D. In his review, Eric Snider wrote: "You might just as well stay home and watch one of the other three, where at least there will be some devilish wit and ironic humor in evidence. You'll get none of that here." Skip it on Blu-ray or DVD.

Trucker
Michelle Monaghan gets to play a trucker in the story of a mother who must take care of her son when his father is hospitalized, with a healthy handful of "bitch" and "dude." In his review, Erik Davis wrote: "On paper, the whole thing might make you roll your eyes -- but the performances (specifically Monaghan and [Jimmy] Bennett) are so good that you almost forget where, how and when you've seen this story before." Rent it on DVD.

The Green Berets
It's not the sort of film you'll find alongside Vietnam classics like Apocalypse Now. As Blu-ray.com says, this John Wayne film "is a curiously quaint, terribly naive look at the Vietnam war that lacks the subtlety and relevance of its grittier '70s successors." As a Blu-ray release, "It features a problematic video transfer, an underwhelming Dolby TrueHD mono mix, and a mere ten minutes of supplemental content."

10 Things I Hate About You Special Edition
It's almost unfathomable that it's been only 10 years since Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles fell in love Taming of the Shrew-style, as Joseph Gordon-Levitt started to shrug off his TV alien ways. Much has changed, and one star is no longer with us, so where does that leave this anniversary release? Home Theater Forum recommends the disc, but for a special edition release, there's only an audio commentary 10 years later (with Larisa Oleynik being the only of the 4 stars to participate) and a half-hour making-of that includes some deleted scenes and gags (not available separately).
On Blu-ray and DVD.
