<em>The Mummy; 21; Spaced: The Complete Series</em>

The Mummy(Universal, $26.98)The Mummy is deservedly a classic, said The New York Times. Boris Karloff’s stiff-legged walk is unforgettable, but the air of romance makes the film. The 1933 picture features the “same sort of existential yearning and sadomasochistic overtones that have kept Anne Rice profitably in business.”

21(Sony, $28.96)Though based on a true story, 21 is pure fantasy, said the Los Angeles Times. This tale of a math whiz who learns how to cheat in high-stakes Vegas blackjack is redeemed by several thrilling set pieces. “What the movie loses in authenticity, it recovers in kinetic dazzle.”

Spaced: The Complete Series(BBC Warner, $59.98)This hilarious British sitcom has a “legion of rabid fans” who’ll be thrilled that it’s now on DVD, said The New York Sun. The show ran for just two seasons but launched the careers of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, who later made Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
