Underworld: Awakening - Buy from Amazon: DVD, Blu-ray, or 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack
This was the biggest hit in the franchise, but the reviews are weak. On the other hand, a 29% positive Tomatometer Score is just average for the franchise. I guess what I'm trying to say is this, if you liked the other films in the franchise, this one will also be worth checking out. The DVD has an audio commentary track, deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a music video. The Blu-ray has a Picture-in-Picture, so it is worth paying the extra $3. Meanwhile, the 3D Blu-ray costs $5 more, which is also a good deal over the Blu-ray. Also coming out this week is a Blu-ray Box Set, which is only $40 for four movies. Worth it, if you don't have any of the other movies on high definition yet.
Vegas: Season Three, Volume One - Buy from Amazon
I've reviewed some of the past seasons of this show. It's lighthearted fun, for the most part, but not very memorable. Nostalgia might help lift it to a purchase for some.
The Vow - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
A Romantic drama starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum as a couple trying to recover after a devastating car crash in which she loses all memory of him. The film's reviews were really bad, but sadly on par with a lot of these films in these genres. The extras on the DVD and the Blu-ray include the usual suspects (audio commentary track, deleted scenes, featurettes, etc.) and it is worth checking out if you are a fan of the actors and / or genre. But there are a lot better options out there.
WWE: WrestleMania XXVIII - Buy from Amazon: DVD or Blu-ray
I can't tell you how old I was when I last watched wrestling, but I can tell you these DVDs / Blu-rays tend to sell quite well in comparison to other sports releases. Although the WWE isn't a sport. (They don't even make that claim.)
