Apollo 13 (Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray)

"Houston, we have a problem." Those words were immortalized during the tense days of the Apollo 13 lunar mission crisis in 1970, events recreated in this epic historical drama from Ron Howard. Astronaut Jim Lovell Tom Hanks leads command module pilot Jack Swigert Kevin Bacon and lunar module driver Fred Haise Bill Paxton on what is slated as NASA's third lunar landing mission. All goes smoothly until the craft is halfway through its mission, when an exploding oxygen tank threatens the crew's oxygen and power supplies.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas – 15th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray)

Prepare the Roast Beast and get set to feast your eyes on director Ron Howard's spectacular live-action film of the cherished Dr. Seuss story about a holiday-hating Grinch who tries to put the kibosh on Christmas. Even if the production misses the simple charm of Dr. Seuss' classic 1957 book or Chuck Jones's beloved 1966 animated adaptation, it is a dizzying wonder of over-the-top performances and creative set design. Howard's Whoville makes Blade Runner's vision of a future Los Angeles look like Mayberry, RFD. Jim Carrey, with an invaluable assist from Oscar-winning makeup maestro Rick Baker, brings the Grinch to roaring, ranting life in a bravura performance.
