New on DVD

“Breaking Bad: The Complete Series: All 62 uncut episodes of this amazing cable series about a high school chemistry teacher turned meth kingpin are available in this set. If the outstanding writing, cinematography and acting aren’t reason enough to own the set, the 16-disc Blu-ray set features about 55 hours of content, including the “No Half Measures: Creating the Final Season of Breaking Bad” documentary that chronicles the making of the final season from the first table read to the last day on set.

“Lone Survivor: Director and writer Peter Berg takes on the same elements of the American spirit that made his “Friday Night Lights” so powerful: loyalty, commitment, trust, brotherhood, love and devotion. And, just as he did with his examination of high school football in Texas, Berg looks at these elements through a human filter, this time using a story about war and remembrance.

“RoboCop”: A Detroit detective becomes more machine than man. This reboot uses the basic blueprint from the 1987 movie starring Peter Weller. It’s been modified and updated to create a sleeker design, but it is not as intellectually cutting-edge. Big business has become the new go-to villains now that the Russians aren’t as scary, making the film less of a cautionary tale about how machines are taking over our lives and more focused on the evils of corporate America. What the new “RoboCop” loses in its message, it makes up with first-rate fights.
