The Ghosts of Action Films Past lead the week’s DVD releases in the FOXLight.  Sylvester Stallone’s crew of mercenaries is hired by Bruce Willis for a seemingly simple task in The Expendables 2.  When said task goes awry, killing one of their own, payback is plotted and happily dished out.  Co-starring Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris and Arnold Schwarzenegger

A whole new litter of talking pups stow away on Mrs. Claus’s sled bringing mischief and good wishes to the town of Pineville in Disney’s Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups.  Pretty soon, though, they and Mrs. Claus must save Christmas around the world.  With the human stars Cheryl Ladd, Josh Feldman and Richard Kind

The story of Minneapolis cult-rockers The Replacements gets told through memories and anecdotes from fans in the musical, writing and acting realms like Goo Goo Dolls, The Decemberists, Robert Christgau, Tom Arnold and George Wendt, in Color Me Obsessed: A Film About The Replacements.
