The Superman Motion Picture Anthology: 1978-2006
(Warner Bros., $130)
With a new addition due soon, this set revisits the “highlights and lowlights” of Superman’s recent screen history, said The Kansas City Star. Four Christopher Reeve films, 1951’s Superman and the Mole-Men, and “metric tons of extras” are included.
The Stunt Man
Fans of this “sensationally original” 1980 film finally get to replace a “not-so-hot” early DVD, said The Wall Street Journal. Steve Railsback stars as a fugitive turned stunt man on a movie set where reality and illusion collide. “The main attraction,” though, is co-star Peter O’Toole.
(20th Century Fox, $30)
For a movie loaded with “ear-scorching profanity,” booze, and drugs, this 2010 comedy has a “fundamentally decent” heart, said The Philadelphia Inquirer. Credit star Ed Helms, who’s “touching” as a small-town salesman trying to avoid temptation at an annual business convention.
