The Road; Stage Coach; True Blood: The Complete Second Season

The Road
(Sony, $28)
Despite its poor run at the box office, The Road “may have been my favorite movie of 2009,” said The Kansas City Star. This chilling adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s post-apocalyptic novel takes “terrifying subject matter” and turns it into a “quietly heartbreaking” film about a father and son’s struggle to survive.

Stage Coach
(Criterion, $39.95)
More than 70 years later, Stage Coach is “still rolling,” said The Washington Post. Directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne, the 1939 “horse-and-buggy adventure” transcends the Western genre with its “incredibly impressive” action scenes, pitting stagecoach passengers against the Apache chief Geronimo.

True Blood: The Complete Second Season
(HBO, $60)
Get your fill of HBO’s “Southern-fried vampire melodrama” before the third season debuts this month, said The Hartford Courant. The second season ramps up the sex, violence, and “campiness,” transforming the show from a “guilty pleasure to a genuine one.”
