'Columbo: Mystery Movie Collection 1991-1993'
I’ll never pass up a chance to get a mention of Peter Falk in the newspaper, and the latest set of his classic gumshoe series, 'Columbo: Mystery Movie Collection 1991-1993,' is as good a reason as any. You know the routine here: You see who did it and then the rest of the episode, Columbo finds out how they did it. You’ll get six “Columbo” TV movies here, each with a criminal that only our favorite rumpled lieutenant can nab. (DVD, $26.98)

‘Life as We Know It’
Can godparents Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel stop hating each other long enough to take care of their goddaughter after both her parents die? It’s a comedy! (DVD, $28.98; Blu-ray, $35.99)

‘It’s Kind of a Funny Story’
A suicidal teen (Keir Gilchrist) commits himself to a psychiatric ward, which helps him make a big change in his life. Zach Galifianakis also stars as one of the patients and provides some big-bearded gravitas. (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.98)

‘Project Runway: The Complete Eighth Season’
There’s lots of drama on the latest season of the fashion competition show, from treachery to an overachieving underdog. And there’s some dressmaking stuff, too. (DVD, $29.99)

‘Paranormal Activity 2’
The super-scary film franchise returns with some demonically good chills. (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.99)

‘You Again’
Tons of name actors — including Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kristin Chenoweth and even Betty White — but not a ton of interest in this revenge film. (DVD, $29.99; Blu-ray, $39.99)

‘Tamara Drewe’
Gemma Atherton stars in the title role of this graphic-novel adaptation from director Stephen Frears. Fans of British comedies of manners need apply. (DVD, $28.95; Blu-ray, $38.96)

‘For Colored Girls’
Tyler Perry put together a great cast for this poorly received adaptation of a Ntozake Shange play. (DVD, $29.95; Blu-ray, $39.99)
