The major theatrical releases coming to home video this week are a real disappointment. 'Sucker Punch,' the latest outing by Zack Snyder, is a disjointed exploitation film starring a quintet of scantily-clad girls living in an alternate reality; 'Beastly' is an adolescent take on 'Beauty and the Beast' that tries to modernize the parable with mixed results; and 'Season of the Witch,' a supernatural action thriller in which a motley crew of 14th century warriors transport a witch to an abbey to end the Black Plague, is so low on the expectation totem pole that it actually succeeds by not trying to be more than it is: fluff. The best bet for the week: 'Barney's Version,' a genuine piece of cinematic art that entertains your heart and stimulates higher brain functions at the same time; and the long-awaited Blu-ray edition of 'The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy: Extended Edition,' with all three films on 15 discs with more than 26 hours of special features.
