New this week on Blu-ray and DVD:
"Pacific Rim" - There is a lot of silly, hokey dialogue stringing the action scenes together in this story of giant robots built to battle sea creatures that rise from the ocean. But those action scenes are pretty spectacular, and viewers who can tap into their inner 10-year-old and enjoy the mayhem should have a lot of fun with it.
The cast features Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Ron Perlman and Clifton Collins Jr., but the real star is the special effects work.
Extras include a commentary track by director Guillermo del Toro, deleted scenes, a blooper reel and the featurettes "Drift Space," "The Digital Artistry of Pacific Rim," "The Shatterdome" and "Focus Points." Blu-ray buyers get an additional featurette, "The Director's Notebook." (Warner Home Video, $28.98 DVD, $35.99 Blu-ray/DVD combo, $44.95 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD combo)
"The Heat" - Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock star in this female variation on the buddy cop formula with McCarthy as a brash Boston cop and Bullock as a straight-laced FBI agent who team up to catch a drug lord.
The Blu-ray includes both the theatrical version of the movie and an unrated cut. Other extras include deleted, alternate and extended scenes; the featurettes "Mullins Family Fun," "How The Heat Was Made," "Let's Get Physical," "Acting Master Class" and "Supporting Cast Cavalcade"; and commentary tracks featuring McCarthy, director Paul Feig and performers from Mystery Science Theater 3000. (20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, $29.98 DVD, $39.99 Blu-ray)
"Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain" - This concert film was shot during two sold-out standup comedy performances at Madison Square Garden and earned more than $30 million theatrically.
Extras include the featurettes "No, No, No, Let US Explain" and "Backstage Pass" and three music videos. (Lionsgate Home Entertainment, $21.98 DVD, $29.99 Blu-ray)
"Maniac" - Like the 1980 slasher movie that inspired it, this remake is shot from the point-of-view of its serial killer protagonist, played by Elijah Wood. Nora Arnezeder plays the object of his desire.
