Boyd At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray


David Ayer's WWII action/drama boasts an all-star cast that includes Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, and Logan Lerman as members of a tank crew headed right into Nazi territory. Definitely for fans of gruesome war movies, so if that doesn't whet your whistle, keep on rolling.

"The Book of Life"

Guillermo del Toro produced this animated family film inspired by Mexican folkore. Although it got mixed reviews from critics, the animation alone makes it worth a look. And, hey, don't you need a break from "Frozen"?

"Downton Abbey: Season 5"

If you haven't caught up to all the "Upstairs Downstairs"-style drama in this PBS series, well, now's your chance. If you're just a diehard collector, the three-disc Blu-ray comes with 40 minutes of supplemental material.

TV Worth Watching

"Jane the Virgin" (CW, Monday at 9 p.m. EST)

How many times do we have to tell you to tune in to this award-winning dramedy? Gina Rodriguez rocks as the titular Jane Villanueva, a pregnant young woman who's also, yes, a virgin.

"Parenthood" (NBC, Thursday at 10 p.m. EST)

It will be really hard to say goodbye to the Bravermans after six years of laughing and crying (and crying some more), but all good things must come to an end. Grab a box of Kleenex and get ready.

New on Netflix


Jon Favreau wrote, directed, and stars in this foodie fantasia about a chef who decides to go rogue and start his own food truck. "Chef" has a robust cast that includes John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Sofía Vergara, Amy Sedaris, and Oliver Platt, among others.

"The Interview"

Yep, this bad boy popped up on Netflix late last week. If you haven't already paid to see it on all the other platforms it was already available on, now's your chance to see what all the fuss was about.

"Stonehearst Asylum"

Genre fans might dig this spooky period piece based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, although it got mixed reviews (at best). Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, David Thewlis, Ben Kingsley, and a whole host of fancy actors co-star, with Brad Anderson ("Session 9") in the director's chair.

New Video on Demand, Rental Streaming, and Digital Only

"Army of Darkness" (Amazon Prime)

The third installation in Sam Raimi's horror trilogy is endlessly quotable and very, very silly. Gimme some sugar, baby!

"Middle of Nowhere" (iTunes)

Before she made history with "Selma," Ava DuVernay snagged lots of Sundance attention for this indie about a woman who drops out of medical school when her husband is sentenced to a long stretch of time in jail. Emayatzy Corinealdi stars as Ruby, alongside Omari Hardwick as her husband Derek, and "Selma" leading man David Oyelowo as Brian, a bus driver who has Ruby rethinking everything she thought she knew.

"Nightcrawler" (iTunes)

Jake Gyllenhaal is creepy and greasy as a guy who will do anything to succeed in the gruesome world of freelance TV work -- the kind that requires getting up close and personal with fresh crime scenes. Rene Russo, Riz Ahmed, and Bill Paxton co-star in this thriller from Dan Gilroy. Gilroy also snagged an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for this L.A. noir.
