New on DVD and Blu-ray

Wings; Thurgood; Hell and Back Again

Wings(Paramount, $25)At long last, the winner of the first Best Picture Oscar is available on Blu-ray and DVD, said the Fresno, Calif., Bee. Clara Bow and Gary Cooper appear in this 1927 drama about World War I fighter pilots. “Beautifully restored,” it deserves space on the shelf of “any lover of movies.”

Thurgood (HBO Films, $20)Laurence Fishburne was “extraordinary” on stage in his one-man show about former Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, said the New York Daily News. In HBO’s recording, Fishburne’s Marshall is sometimes a bemused raconteur, and yet he delivers every line with “purpose and pride.”

Hell and Back Again(Docurama, $30) Danfung Dennis’s superb documentary about an Afghanistan war vet is “violent, jarring, and daring,” said The Philadelphia Inquirer. After watching Sgt. Nathan Harris’s “at times ugly readjustment” to U.S. civilian life, you’ll likely never think about war the same way again.
