DVD of the Week: 'Tron:Legacy.' Plus: 'Little Fockers,' 'Narnia 3' and Jim Carrey's Best Little-Seen Role in Years

Tron: Legacy Get on The Grid this week, as Disney's remake of the sci-fi cult classic about getting lost in a computer world comes to DVD, BD and 3D BD. Jeff Bridges returns as programmer Kevin Flynn, who's gone missing for decades.

Tron: Legacy

When his son Sam (Garrett Hedlund) accidentally gets sucked into his father's digital world, he finds the missing Flynn--and the evil alter ego who wants to reign over all programs at any cost. The movie may be a bit slow, but the effects are breathtaking--if you or a friend has a 3D setup, watch it (I have, and I promise you it's worth a look). Extras: featurettes on casting and the visuals (DVD/BD); those plus featurettes on Kevin Flynn, the movie's legacy and Daft Punk music video (the 2- and 4-disc BD packs); those plus the original TRON in high def and all its featurettes (5-disc BD/DVD combo pack)
 
Little Fockers When you're dealing with a movie that has Robert De Niro arguing with Ben Stiller while the latter has a giant erection and the best joke is the tired "Focker" sounds like you-know-what word, it's really time to rethink your choices. This third entry involving in-laws and now kids is the worst of the lot. Extras: Lame gag reel, alternate beginning and ending (hey, why not redo the whole thing?) and a couple of interviews (DVD/BD)

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader (Apr. 8) In this third of the series, Edmund and Lucie find themselves traveling back to Narnia with Prince Caspian for more adventures on the edge of the world. Extras: Deleted scenes, director's commentary, games, featurettes (DVD/BD) Watch this exclusive clip

I Love You Phillip Morris This strange, edgy little romantic comedy languished on shelves after distributors balked atI Love You Phillip Morris the gay love story premise based on a true story: Jim Carrey stars as Steven Russell, a con man who falls for an inmate (Ewan McGregor) during a stint in prison and goes to wild extremes both legal and illegal to ensure they can be together. In a Hollywood world where everything is remakes and reboots, this surprisingly sweet romance will make real movie fans rejoice and remember Carrey does his best with weird, semi-outrageous roles that walk the line between drama and comedy like this one. Extras: Disappointingly, nothing other than a fairly entertaining commentary (DVD/BD)
