New this week on DVD and Blu-ray:
"G.I. Joe: Retaliation" - Those looking for chaotic action, both sleek martial-arts-style battles and good ol' American let's-kick-butts-and-blow-stuff-up mayhem, probably will be happy with this sequel, which is really more of a do-over. Most of the characters are new, certainly the good guys. Let's just say Channing Tatum doesn't merit top billing - or even top five billing.
This is The Rock's movie. OK, he goes by Dwayne Johnson these days but here he does more posing and engages in more hand-to-hand combat than he did in a WWE ring. And Johnson continues to be the go-to guy to stabilize shaky action franchises. G.I. Joes played by Johnson, Adrianne Palicki and D.J. Cotrona must stop villainous Zartan (Jonathan Pryce) from starting a nuclear war as he assumes the identity of the President.
Director John M. Chu and producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura team for a commentary track. Other extras include deleted scenes and an eight-part "G.I. Joe: Declassified" featurette. (Paramount Home Entertainment, $29.99 DVD, $39.99 Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy, $54.99 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy)

Aselton is joined by Bell for a commentary track, and the disc also includes the featurettes "Behind the Scenes of Black Rock" and "A Thrilling Score: The Music of Black Rock." (Lionsgate Home Entertainment, $19.99 DVD, $24.95 Blu-ray)
