If you got to see this terrific flick at the theater, then chances are you'll want to pick it up for the collection, and if you didn't get to see it on the big screen, do yourself a favor and order it now. Not in a very long time has an actor transformed himself so convincingly into another person as Joaquin Phoenix does in this film. From the very first scenes of Walk The Line ($28), you'd swear you're watching the original Man in Black. Even the annoying Reese Witherspoon turns out an award-caliber performance. This collector's edition 2-disc set features deleted scenes, extended music videos, and two Johnny cash featurettes.
Even a flopalicious live-action movie starring Mathew Broderick couldn't tarnish this classic cartoon series. If you grew up in the 80s, you more than likely have a soft spot for the blundering Inspector Gadget, his niece Penny, Brain the dog, and of course the darkly awesome Dr. Claw. This 4-DVD box set ($27; April 25) gives you the first 22 episodes of the show, along with extras like a retrospective video with DIC executives and an original art gallery. Go Gadget Go.
One of 2005's biggest movies, King Kong ($22) is finally making his way to a home theater near you on March 28. With spectacular special effects and an all star cast including Naomi Watts, Jack Black, and Adrien Brody, the film is heartfelt and extremely exciting at the same time, and truly worthy of its classic 1933 namesake. Oh, and having Peter Jackson directing certainly didn't hurt anything either.
While it’s easy to recommend a show after watching an episode as explosive — pun intended — as this evening’s Grey’s Anatomy, we’re not saying this just because of some post-show buzz.

While this show is based in a hospital, it has a warmth, truth, and humility that most other medical dramas lack. If you haven’t been watching, now’s your chance to catch up.
