Sometimes the label of "Sundance favorite" can be a detraction - sometimes it means an obscure, hard-to-grasp indie film with a target audience of film students and snobs. "Like Crazy," which won the Grand Jury Prize Dramatic and a Special Jury Prize for star Felicity Jones, is a touching story about a U.S. college student (Anton Yelchin) who falls in love with a British student (Jones). The Brit decides to ignore her expired visa and stick around to be with her love. She eventually does return to England, but she's unable to come back to the States because of her earlier illegal stay. What follows is an affecting story about a couple in the midst of relationship turmoil. (DVD, $29.99; Blu-ray, $39.99)

So ... they remade the 1984 banned-dancing Kevin Bacon favorite. No, I'm not sure why. (DVD, $29.99; Blu-ray, $44.99)

Greek epic

'Immortals'
Director Tarsem Singh - known for making visually spectacular movies such as "The Cell" - takes his turn at epic Greek mythology with the story of Theseus (the future Superman, Henry Cavill) taking on the crazed King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke). (DVD, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.99; Blu-ray 3-D/Blu-ray combo, $49.99)

Stop me, please

'Jack and Jill'
I have not seen this Adam Sandler film in which he plays both a brother and a sister, and I'd like to keep it that way. But let's face it: One rainy day it'll be playing on TBS 24/7 and I'll break down and watch it. That's how I've come to see "Big Daddy" 15 times. I need an intervention. (DVD, $30.99; Blu-ray, $35.99; DVD/Blu-ray combo, $40.99)
