Happy Labor Day, folks! For those of you recovering from your BBQs and margaritas, here’s what we’ve got on tap for home video this week: First off, we have a heist movie full of magic, a sentimental coming-of-age film from Studio Ghibli, and a cheesy SyFy Channel original. Then we’ve got a chilling crime story, an acclaimed documentary, a Rob Zombie flick, and a curious direct-to-DVD release starring Dwayne Johnson. Read on for the full list:
