Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week:
"Much Ado About Nothing"
What's It About? Joss Whedon's ("The Avengers") modern retelling of the Shakespeare classic follows two couples with different takes on romance. Benedick (Alexis Denisof) and Beatrice (Amy Acker) are older and disdainful of their love, while the sweet young Claudio (Fran Kranz) and Hero (Jillian Morgese) are deeply absorbed by their love.
Why We're IN: Whedon's "Much Ado About Nothing" is a refreshing and charming take on the classic comedy for its unique blending of the Shakespearian dialogue with a contemporary setting and aesthetic. While it sticks to the original content and doesn't add anything wholly revolutionary, it's nonetheless an entertaining addition to the canon of Shakespeare film adaptations.

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week:
"The Exorcist" 40th Anniversary Edition
What's It About? The 1973 horror classic from William Friedkin ("The French Connection") follows the story of Regan (Linda Blair), a 12-year-old girl who becomes possessed by a demon and must be exercised by two priests.
Why We're IN: "The Exorcist" marked a significant moment in horror cinema history and it still remains one of the scariest movies ever made. The extremity of its vulgar and shocking possession scenes are so powerful and traumatizing that they'll probably never leave your mind.

New on DVD & Blu-ray
"After Earth"
What's It About? When Cypher (WIll Smith) get injured during a crash landing on a futuristic deserted Earth, his son Kitai (Jaden Smith) must go out into the mysterious land alone for help. This uninspired sci-fi adventure is nothing but a father and son playing themselves with funny accents in a forgettable story.
IN or OUT? OUT. "Alpha & Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure"
What's It About? When Kate, Humphrey, and their three wolf cubs are preparing to celebrate their first winter, the smallest cub Runt mysteriously disappears.

"Alpha & Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure" is a fun adventure young children will love.
IN or OUT? IN. "Curse of Chucky"
What's It About? Everyone's favorite red-headed murderous kids doll returns in this horror thriller which follows a paraplegic girl who suspects Chucky of killing her mother. While this sixth installment in the "Child's Play" series lacks the campiness of the franchise, "Cure of Chucky" retains the suspense thrills we love it for.

"Europa Report"
What's It About? In this sci-fi thriller starring Sharlto Copley ("Elysium") and Michael Nyqvist ("Girl With the Dragon Tattoo"), an international crew of astronauts embarks on a mission to search for life on one of Jupiter's moons.

"The Hangover Part III"
What's It About? In the third and final "Hangover" film even more chaos ensues when one of the Wolf Pack goes missing and they must track down Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong) who has escaped from prison.

"Home Run"
What's It About? In this sports drama an all-star baseball player (Scott Elrod) is forced into rehab to help his substance abuse problem. During recovery he begins to find new hope through facing his past and coaching a Little League team. This preaching story is overwhelming from the start and offers nothing new as a family drama.

"The Lifeguard"
What's It About? In "The Lifeguard," Kristen Bell is a 30 year old New York reporter who decides to quit her job and return to her childhood home where she feels happiest. Once back home, she returns to her old high school as a lifeguard and starts a dangerous relationship with a younger man. This seemingly light drama turns into unexpected dark territory, but is never compelling enough to hold your attention.

"Nothing Left to Fear"
What's It About? This horror film follows a family who has just moved to the small sleepy town of Stull, Kansas where horrific events begin happening. The children soon become tormented by terrifying visions and one of the Seven Gates of Hell opens and threatens to release evil creatures. "Nothing Left to Fear" is so un-inventive that there is literally nothing to fear in the dull, uninspired film.

"The Purge"
What's It About? James DeMonaco's "The Purge" takes place in a futuristic society where all crime is legalized in one 12-hour period each year. When a boy lets a man on the run into her home, the family is held hostage by murderous crazies. Starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey, "The Purge" disappoints by not fully taking advantage of DeMonaco's intriguing concept and instead wasting time as a cliche home-invasion thriller.

"Stuck In Love"
What's It About? This debut film from Josh Boone follows an acclaimed writer (Greg Kinnear) who continually obsesses over his ex-wife (Jennifer Connelly) who left him for another man. Meanwhile his teenage children (Lily Collins and Nat Wolff) are struggling with the complexities of romance. "Stuck In Love" explores nothing new in the dramedy romance genre, but is worthwhile for its strong performances.

"Zombie Hunter"
What's It About? Starring Martin Copping and Danny Trejo ("Machete Kills"), "Zombie Hunter" follows a group of junkies turned into flesh-eating zombies by street drugs. This ridiculous film includes an ax-wielding priest named Jesus, a psycho clown with a chainsaw, and lots of guns.

"Airplane II: The Sequel"
What's It About? In this goofball sequel the loquacious Ted Striker (Robert Hays) attempts to take over the airplane all while trying to fix his relationship with a stewardess (Julie Hagerty). However, the computer board of the aircraft malfunctions and the plane is sent straight for the sun. While this sequel offers a great performance from William Shatner, it pales in comparison to the classic original.

"Batman: The Dark Knight Returns" Deluxe Edition
What's It About? In this animated film Batman hasn't been seen for 10 years and a new gang of vicious criminals are taking over Gotham. The 55-year-old Bruce Wayne is forced to get back into the Batsuit to save his people once again. This incredibly violent animation action film is riveting from start to finish and will entertain all fans of the Caped Crusader.
