<em>Do the Right Thing; Inkheart; The Jack Lemmon Collection</em>

Do the Right Thing(Criterion, $39.99)Do the Right Thing established Spike Lee as a “major talent,” said the Chicago Tribune. This film about strained race relations within a Brooklyn neighborhood combined tragedy and comedy with an “extraordinary” ensemble cast. It remains Lee’s “most ­celebrated” work.

Inkheart(New Line, $28.98)Brendan Fraser plays a heroic single dad with a “supernatural ability” that brings fictional characters to life when he reads aloud, said the Boston Herald. Though “intense and at times terrifying,” the film’s perfect for young fans of The Mummy and Journey to the Center of the Earth.

The Jack Lemmon Collection(Sony, $59.95)This collection showcases Jack Lemmon’s rise from television actor to “one of Hollywood’s biggest box office draws,” said The New York Times. It features five “richly evocative,” if little-known, comedies from 1954 to 1964, including Phffft and The Notorious Landlady, co-starring Kim Novak.
