New on DVD: 'Brave' for the Kids, 'Savages' for the Adults

Brave Pixar's latest, its first non-sequel since 2009's Up, is the latest entry into the studio's impressive pantheon, and as far as critics were concerned it fell somewhat short of other Pixar movies -- which is almost like saying your star athlete didn't live up because he got the bronze and not a gold medal. The story spins the princess mythos a bit into a mother-daughter struggle as impetuous redhead Merida defies her mother Queen Elinor's attempts to refine her, rebels against an arranged marriage, and makes an ill-fated wish that comes true with dangerous consequences. Available on 5-disc combo pack (3D/BD/DVD/digital copy), 3-disc BD combo pack and single DVD.

Savages Oliver Stone's violent thriller about a pair of SoCal boys who just want to sell weed and hang out with their girlfriend O (Blake Lively and yes, she beds them both) but find themselves in hot water when she's kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel after a deal goes bad is a hazy, violent good time. Beleaguered blockbuster boy Taylor Kitsch stars as the ex-military who discovers their pristine form of marijuana, with Aaron Johnson (Kick -Ass) all buffed up as his hippie partner, but the real stars of this show are Salma Hayek as the cartel head in a Cleopatra wig and Benicio Del Toro as her ruthless henchman.

Nitro Circus the Movie X-Games groundbreaker Travis Pastrana has set multiple records (and taken the extreme sports world's breath away) on his motorcyle performing stunts like the One-Handed 360 and Superman Seat Grab-Indian Air Backflip (they're as dangerous as they sound). With this movie he takes action sports to the true extreme, with his band of crazies on bikes. boats and monster trucks  attempting stunts both heartstopping-- jumping from one skyscraper rooftop to another -- and plain stupid -- flipping a tricycle into a pile of mulch. It's Jackass meets hell on wheels.

Seen any of these in theaters? What did you think?
