New on DVD and Blu-ray
Drive; Godzilla; To Kill a Mockingbird
Drive(Sony, $27)This thriller is a “testament to the fundamental appeal of fast cars, dangerous men, and tension,” said the A.V. Club. Ryan Gosling dazzles as a getaway-car driver who moonlights as a Hollywood stuntman. In an “inspired piece of casting,” Albert Brooks plays a vicious mob boss.
Godzilla(Criterion, $30) “In a sparkling restoration, Criterion has revived the 1954 Godzilla as the daring and enduring work it always was,” said Time. This set includes Ishiro Honda’s original Japanese classic as well as an American version that added scenes featuring Raymond Burr.
To Kill a Mockingbird(Universal, $27)“If you don’t already own” this wonderful movie, “you should,” said the Akron Beacon Journal. “The clarity of the 50th-anniversary Blu-ray version is something to behold,” as is Gregory Peck in his Oscar-winning turn as moral lawyer Atticus Finch. Extras include a making-of documentary.
