New on DVD: 'A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas,' 'Breaking Dawn Pt. 1'

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas John Cho and Kal Penn return to offend just about everyone with their gleeful, druggy brand of un-PC humor in what might be the best in the series. Here, the guys have grown up and apart, until a certain mistaken delivery reunites them for a night of debauchery involving Christmas trees, virgins, Neil Patrick Harris, a toddler high on coke and ecstasy, and race jokes aplenty. On the small screen the 3D obviously doesn't translate, but you'll get what they were going for with the effects; somehow in all the raunch and offensiveness lives a surprisingly endearing movie that's less about H&K getting stoned and more about the ramped-up lunacy going on around them. Extras: "Extra dope" edition includes extended scenes and a 2D extended cut (BD combo pack)  

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 1 (available Saturday, Feb. 11) I know this much: my recommendation of or warning against this disc won't make a lick of difference--by now you're either a fan of the juggernaut series, or you're currently furiously making plans to ensure you're out of the house when the significant other brings it home. If anything, this second-to-last installment in which Bella and Edward marry and Bella gives birth is as mopey-angsty-moony as the first three movies, and thus lives up to pretty much everyone's expectations no matter which side of the fence you're on. Watch through the end credits for a sneak peek at what the Volturis are up to in Part 2. Extras: Bella and Edward's "wedding video," commentary with director Bill Condon, in-depth 6-part making-of documentary, "jump" to your favorite scenes (DVD/BD)

Anonymous Roland Emmerich's weird, stuffed-to-the-gills period potboiler revolves around the speculation that someone else was behind Shakespeare's massive body of work--namely an earl who doesn't want to be blamed for casting aspersions at royalty in his plays and poems.

Fireflies in the Garden Star-studded dysfunctional family melodrama stars Ryan Reynolds, Willem Dafoe, Julia Roberts and Emilly Watson who reunite for a celebration turned tragedy. Who's in?!

Now, what about you...will you be there when doors open to get a copy of Twilight in your paws, or are you more of a Harold & Kumar fan?
