Baseball: The Tenth Inning; Splice; The Secret of Kells

Baseball: The Tenth Inning(PBS, $25)Filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick “haven’t lost their touch,” said the Ventura County, Calif., Star. Sixteen years after their series Baseball aired on PBS, the pair have returned with an update. Their new, two-part documentary does “a very good job” of humanizing the era’s steroid users.

Splice(Warner, $29)This creepy genetics tale ranks “a cut above the typical horror film,” said the Lexington, Ky., Herald-Leader. Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley star as genetic engineers who’ve created an animal-human hybrid that proves to be a memorable film monster. It’s too bad the ending falters.

The Secret of Kells(New Video, $30)The artwork is “the star” in this Oscar-nominated Irish animation feature, said the San Francisco Chronicle. Inspired by Celtic mythology, it tells the story of a ninth-century monk who enlists his nephew to complete an illuminated holy book before invading Norsemen snuff out civilization.
