New DVD releases include ‘Lakeview Terrace'

‘Lakeview Terrace'

Move in next door to a cop and all should be well, right? Not if the cop is a crazy guy played by Samuel L. Jackson. The bad-neighbor thriller stars Jackson as a Los Angeles policeman who doesn't care for the interracial relationship of the new people next door (Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington) and takes it on himself to harass them back to where they came from. The DVD and Blu-ray come with deleted scenes, commentary from Washington and director Neil LaBute, and three behind-the-scenes featurettes. DVD, $28.96; Blu-ray, $39.95.

‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona'

Woody Allen made one of his periodic returns to commercial status and scored some of his highest marks with critics in years on this romance set in Spain. Allen collaborates for the third time with Scarlett Johansson, who stars as an adventurous American on vacation in Spain with a staid pal (Rebecca Hall), the two of them caught up in a love quadrangle with a lusty painter (Javier Bardem) and his volatile ex-wife (Penelope Cruz). Fans will have to do without DVD extras, as Allen prefers to let his movies speak for themselves. DVD, $28.95; Blu-ray, $34.99.


Christian crowds made a hit out of this inspirational drama starring Kirk Cameron as a firefighter who realizes that his biggest rescue mission is not battling blazes but salvaging his shaky marriage. Among the DVD extras are deleted scenes, a reel of bloopers and behind-the-scenes pranks, and a handful of making-of featurettes. Director Alex Kendrick and producer Stephen Kendrick, who co-wrote the screenplay, also collaborate for audio commentary. $28.95.

Corruption, distrust and betrayal threaten to shatter a family of New York cops in this crime drama starring Edward Norton, Colin Farrell and Jon Voight. Norton plays a detective reluctantly enlisted by his dad to investigate the shooting deaths of four fellow officers, a case that forces him to put his brother and brother-in-law under scrutiny. The movie comes in a bare-bones single-disc DVD or in a two-disc DVD set and a Blu-ray release with a feature-length making-of documentary and a digital copy of the flick for portable video players.
