After a decade-long hiatus, Buzz and Woody return for another heartwarming Toy Story installment. When Andy prepares to leave for college, the toys wind up in a day care center and must fight their way back home. The film maintains the same creative humor that we've come to expect from the franchise, along with a message of growing up that's sure to strike a chord with adults. DVD extras include a behind-the-scenes look at Pixar, a sneak peek at the Toy Story-themed playland at Hong Kong Disneyland, and the short film "Day & Night" which played before the film in theaters.
Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, and the team behind the hit HBO series Band of Brothers deliver another in-the-trenches look at World War 2, this time from the perspective of the soldiers battling the Japanese in the East. The epic drama boasts excellent performances (watch for a cameo from Fringe's Anna Torv), and it's easy to get swept up in the characters' romances. But be warned: the gritty, savage portrayal of battle is often hard to watch. DVD extras include profiles of the Marines dramatized in the series and historical context for each episode.
