'The Big Lebowski'
I'm never one to run out and upgrade a perfectly good DVD, but I'm going to make an exception for this "limited edition" book and Blu-ray edition of the beloved Coen brothers farce "The Big Lebowski," about mistaken identity, bowling and the unforgettable The Dude (Jeff Bridges). This new version is a super-stuffed collection - starting with a 28-page book filled with interviews, photographs, a timeline and trivia - and features new extras such as behind-the scenes footage, interviews, Lebowski-isms, and a play list. (Blu-ray, $29.98)

'Something Borrowed'
There's a ton of unlikable characters in this not-so-good rom-com starring Kate Hudson, John Krasinski and Ginnifer Goodwin. (DVD, $28.98; Blu-ray, $35.99)

'That's What I Am'
Perhaps the most unlikely film to come from WWE studios, this coming-of-age film about kids growing up in the 1960s - starring Ed Harris - feels a bit like "The Wonder Years," but that's not a bad thing. The only connection to the wrestling world is WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt holder Randy Orton, who has a small, subdued supporting role as one of the kids' fathers. (DVD, $19.96; Blu-ray, $29.95)

'Dexter' Fifth Season
Everyone's favorite serial killer is back, and Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is feeling quite a bit of guilt over a death that I'm not going to spoil here. (DVD, $54.99; Blu-ray, $64.99)

'Jane Eyre'
Here's another adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's novel, this one starring Mia Wasikowskia and Michael Fassbender ("X-Men: First Class"). (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray, $34.98)

'Priest'
Paul Bettany stars in this flick about vampires and the super-soldier priests who combat them. It's mindless, but worth a rental for genre fans. (DVD, $30.99; Blu-ray, $35.99)

'The Bang Bang Club'
This film, featured at the Tribeca Film Festival, follows photographers in South Africa in the 1990s, during the turbulent period when apartheid was coming to an end. (DVD, $24.98; Blu-ray, $29.98)

'The Conspirator'
Director Robert Redford looks at Mary Suratt, one of seven people charged with a conspiracy to kill President Lincoln. (DVD, $29.95; Blu-ray, $39.99)

'Muppets Take Manhattan' / 'Muppets From Space'
Can you tell that there's a new Muppets movie on the way? These two Muppet flicks aren't as good as the original "The Muppet Movie," but they're still a lot of fun. (DVD/Blu-ray combo, $19.99 each)

'Spin City: Season 5'
Charlie Sheen in his pre-"tiger bloo"d days steps in for Michael J. Fox on the fifth season of this funny 2000s political sitcom set in the New York City's mayor's office. (DVD, $29.93)

'Batman: Brave & The Bold Season Two Part One'
The kitschy animated Dark Knight is back for more kid-and-adult-friendly adventures with some awesome guest stars from the DC Universe, including Green Lantern, Aquaman, Firestorm and a bunch of others. (DVD, $19.98)

'The Colossus of New York'
I'll fess up that I've never heard of this 1958 science-fiction film about a crazed cyborg running amok in New York City, but now that I know about it, I kind of have to see it. (DVD, $24.95)
