Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
"Fast & Furious 6"
What's It About? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Vin Diesel, and the late Paul Walker reunite with Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and future Wonder Woman Gal Gadot to put the pedal to the medal in the sixth iteration of this car-racing series. Can our favorite speed freaks outwit and outdrive a gang of drivers led by a British baddie named Shaw (Luke Evans)?
Why We're IN: Besides the fact that some of the DVD earnings will be donated to the late Paul Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide, this is the perfect guilty-pleasure action film to pop on with a bunch of friends. It's worth it for the runway scene alone.
Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week
"Big" (25th Anniversary Edition)
What's It About? Before Tom Hanks saved "Mr. Banks," he won our hearts as a little boy named Josh Baskin who wakes up one day in a man's body. Being an adult with a job and stuff isn't all it's cracked up to be, but how is Josh supposed to return to teendom? Elizabeth Perkins and Robert Loggia co-star in this comedy directed by Penny Marshall.
Why We're IN: That scene in FAO Schwarz is pure joy.
New on DVD & Blu-ray
What's It About? Lifelong best friends Lil (Naomi Watts) and Roz (Robin Wright) start having very grown-up feelings about each other's sons. James Frecheville ("Animal Kingdom") and Xavier Samuel ("The Loved Ones," "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse") play their respective lovers in this steamy adaptation of a novella by Doris Lessing. Save the drama for your mama, indeed.
IN or OUT: In. Don't these people ever wear anything but bathing suits?
"Battle of the Year"
What's It About? Breakdance battles! "Lost" star Josh Holloway plays the reluctant coach of a b-boy team led by Dante (Laz Alonso). That's about it.
IN or OUT: Out. Maybe you'd like to rent "Planet B-Boy" instead? It's a documentary by Benson Lee, who for some reason also directed "BOTY."
"Despicable Me 2"
What's It About? The fight against evil never stops for poor Gru (Steve Carell), but at least this time around he's got a love interest –- sort of. Kristen Wiig voices Lucy, an undercover agent who's teamed up with Gru to find the latest uber-villain. Naturally, the Minions and Margo, Edith, and Agnes are there to help (and be cute).
IN or OUT: In. If you're a parent, this will be on replay in your house 24/7.
WATCH a sneak preview of the brand-new Minion mini-movie. (VIDEO)
What's It About? Mads Mikkelsen ("Hannibal") doesn't eat anyone's face in this drama about a kindergarten teacher who's dealing with a custody battle when he's accused of a terrible crime. Is he guilty? Will he be vindicated among the other citizens of this small Danish town? What about his own child?
IN or OUT: Fans of dramas and/or foreign films will be In.
"Jayne Mansfield's Car"
What's It About? Billy Bob Thornton co-wrote, directed, and appears in this Southern Gothic family drama that doesn't actually have anything to do with the late screen siren. Robert Duvall, John Hurt, and Kevin Bacon are just a sample of this talented ensemble, but that didn't seem to make much of a difference to the unimpressed critics.
IN or OUT: Out.
"Man of Tai Chi"
What's It About? Keanu Reeves directs and stars in this martial arts extravaganza. Tiger Hu Chen, who did stunts on "The Matrix Reloaded" and "The Matrix Revolutions," as well as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," stars as the eponymous Man of Tai Chi, who trades his mundane job for kicking butt in a martial arts fight club. Whether or not he'll rise to the top of the underground isn't as important as whether or not he'll ever master the spiritual nuances of Ling Kong Tai Chi.
IN or OUT: In. Seriously.
What's It About? Rosemarie DeWitt plays a masseuse named Abby who'd suddenly really grossed out by touching other humans. On the other side of town, her brother the dentist (Josh Pais) learns he has the magic touch. Scoot McNairy appears as an adorable punky bike dude who's confused by Abby's distance, while Ellen Page plays the assistant to her dental daddy.
IN or OUT: Fans of Shelton's intimate DIY approach will be In.
New on Blu-ray
"The Golden Voyage Of Sinbad" & "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger"
What's It About? Ray Harryhausen did the super-cool effects for these two tales of Sinbad's adventures. Plenty of mystery, intrigue, and magic, and crazy creatures await -- as does the fourth Dr. Who, Tom Baker, Jane Seymour, and other familiar faces.
IN or OUT: Fans of Harryhausen's special effects should be In. These are also limited edition releases!
"Mary Poppins" (50th Anniversary Edition)
What's It About? Uh, does a spoonful of sugar ring any bells? This classic musical with Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke looks eye-poppingly cool and colorful on Blu-ray.
IN or OUT: Disney fans will be In.
