On DVD This Week: Inside Out, Doctor Who, Vacation, and More

by | November 2, 2015 | Comments

This week on home video, we’ve got the latest winner from Pixar, a not-so-well-received reboot of a comedy classic, a couple of worthy documentaries, a couple of solid indie flicks, and one extremely fascinating thriller featuring a slew of ornery wild animals, as well as a couple of extremely popular TV shows. Read on for the full list:

Inside Out (2015) 98%

Riley is an 11-year-old girl whose family has relocated from Minnesota to San Francisco, and she’s struggling with her emotions, which are personified by a group of colorful avatars that live and work in her brain. Special features abound in this Blu-ray release of Pixar’s latest winner, and they include the animated short that preceded the movie in theaters (Lava), an all-new animated short called “Riley’s First Date?,” several making-of featurettes, deleted scenes, and more.

Vacation (2015) 27%

Ed Helms is the latest actor to portray Rusty Griswold in this reboot of the beloved National Lampoon comedy, and the plot is basically the same as the original: the family hits the road for Walley World, and is met with wacky characters and bizarre humiliations along the way. Bonuses include cast and crew interviews, a making-of doc, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and a tribute to the state of Georgia.
