anfan la Tulipe
(Criterion, $30)
Fanfan la Tulipe “sealed Gerard Philipe’s status as the top French actor” of his generation, said USA Today. In this 1952 swashbuckler film, the beloved actor plays a man who escapes a shotgun marriage by enlisting in the army.

Wall-E
(Disney, $19.99)
“Wall-E is one of the best films of the decade,” said the Los Angeles Times. A lonely robot left to clean up a vacant Earth generates “the funniest silent comedy since the 1920s” alongside an affecting romance and a “cautionary tale about human sloth.”

A Colbert Christmas
(Comedy Central, $20)
The self-important Stephen Colbert discovers the true meaning of Christmas, said Newsday. Trapped in a cabin, the TV host sings and dances his way out with help from Willie Nelson and Elvis Costello. Some proceeds go to the nonprofit Feeding America.
