DVD of the Week: ‘How to Train Your Dragon.’ Plus: ‘Jonah Hex’

How to Train Your Dragon Although Dreamworks is usually considered the also-ran next to Pixar when it comes to animation, the studio knocked it out of the park with this charming 3-D adventure, which combines a poignantly sweet story about tolerance and acceptance with wonderful animated characters. Jay Baruchel is the voice of Hiccup, a young Viking who accidentally wounds a small, toothless yet ornery dragon he was intending to slay—and then, Black Stallion-style, they become best of friends and heal the wounds of war that have killed many of each of their kind. Extras: Filmmakers’ commentary, “Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon,” several making-of featurettes, deleted scenes and “DWA Jukebox” (DVD/BD); “Animators’ Corner” and trivia track (BD)

Jonah Hex This strange horror-Western-comic adaptation suffered a critical and box office drubbing, but I cautiously recommend it on DVD/BD—at a lean 80 minutes, why not give it a chance? Josh Brolin stars as the titular cowboy who teams up with a prostitute (Megan Fox) to keep his arch-nemesis from blowing up Washington, D.C. on July 4. Extras: Deleted scenes (DVD/BD); "The Inside Story of Jonah Hex" and "The Weird Western Tales of Jonah Hex" (BD)
 Holy Rollers Breakout star Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) plays a Hasidic Jew drawn into a world of drugs, sex and rave clubs in this movie based on a true story about an Orthodox Brooklyn community involved in a major drug-trafficking operation. Extras: Director and cast commentary with Eisenberg and Justin Bartha, five deleted scenes and interviews with Eisenberg and Bartha (DVD)
Ladies & Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones The band’s “Exile on Main Street” U.S. tour, filmed over four nights in Texas in 1972, has Mick Jagger and the boys playing classics like “Tumbling Dice,” “Midnight Rambler,” “Street Fighting Man” and more; bonus features include rehearsal footage and two Jagger interviews.
