Zombies are back in vogue, and Zombieland is the crème de la crème of comedic zombie horror flicks. If you’ve ever been a fan of zombie movies you’re not going to want to keep this one out of your collection for too long. The DVD and Blu-rays come with some neat extra features, too. You’ll get commentary from the director, Ruben Fleischer, as well as from Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg. You’ll also get a couple cool featurettes – In Search of Zombieland and Zombieland is Your Land – deleted scenes, and more. I mean, come on. This one’s a no-brainer.

Hilary Swank plays the most famous woman to ever fly a plane, Amelia Earhart, in Amelia. Richard Gere co-stars, so this is a good one if you need to find something for your special lady friend’s birthday. There aren’t many special features, but you’ll be able to check out some deleted scenes, the featurette The Power of Amelia Earhart, Making Amelia, and on the Blu-ray edition, The Plane Behind the Legend. If you’re looking for a chick flick that isn’t really a chick flick, this is your best bet.
