Daniel Radcliffe is all grow’d up in this week’s FOXLight DVD release roundup.  For his first post-Potter film, Radcliffe is a widowed lawyer who is tasked with sorting out the affairs of a deceased eccentric in The Woman In Black. But, he soon finds out, there is a vengeful ghost in the mix…

Red Tails stars Terence Howard, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Ne-Yo and others as the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, telling the true story of their 1944 battle against enemies not just European, but also among the racially divisive Allied forces…

Tom Hardy and Chris Pine are CIA operatives and best friends, at least until Reese Witherspoon enters their world, in This Means War.  And by “war”, they mean the battle for Witherspoon’s affection…

From the animation studio that created Ponyo, Disney imports The Secret World of Arrietty, the story of little people who live a hidden life under the floorboards of a suburban home, until they’re discovered by the precocious children who live upstairs.  Featuring the voices of Amy Poehler, Will Arnett and Carol Burnett.

In the Music on DVD section…

Sade: Bring Me Home | Live 2011 contains a 2-hour live concert plus a truncated CD to bring on a smooth, relaxing road trip…

The Strange Case of Alice Cooper was filmed on their 1979 Madhouse Rock tour and shown only sporadically until now.  More rock opera than concert, it was inspired by Cooper’s real-life stint in a sanitarium, and features Vincent Price as host…

Big Fun in the Big Town is a 1986 Dutch documentary on the then-burgeoning New York hip hop scene, featuring a 17-year old LL Cool J, a skinny Biz Markie, and DMC (of Run-DMC) showing off his first Cadillac.  A fascinating trip back…way back…back into time.
