"A Star is Born: Deluxe Edition"

Judy Garland gave the performance of her career in this terrific remake of the Janet Gaynor and Frederic March film. Director George Cukor got the most out of Garland in her dramatic scenes, but she really shines with her various musical numbers. Besides the film that has been remastered, there are four hours of bonus features. They include: four alternative filming of musical numbers, trailers of all three versions, newsreels, Hollywood premiere telecasts, radio interviews, after-party premiere footage, 60 minutes of recording sessions, featurettes, dramatic scenes and much more.

"Stones in Exile"

Fans of the Rolling Stones know that "Exile On Main Street," is one of their best albums. This is the story behind the making of the album in France, where the Stones had gone to live because of tax advantages. There are great home movies that were taken of the group, along with a wide range of interviews. Many people have never

seen a recording session, but this was a rarity, being shot and recorded in a villa. Some of the interviews, besides the band include: Jack White, Sheryl Crow, Liz Phair, Will I Am,

Caleb Followill, Benicio Del Toro, Don Was and more. The Stones music is great.

"Explorer: 25 Years"

National Geographic's Explorer is television's longest-running

cable documentary series, which premiered on Nickelodeon in 1985. It then moved to TBS, CNBC and MSNBC before settling in on the National Geographic Channel. Lisa Ling hosts this program that includes the first look at the undersea wreckage of the Titanic, footage from war zones, encounters with wildlife, glimpses inside North Korea and Guantanamo, a look at various gangs, border battles, drugs, our technological achievements and many other fascinating subjects.

"Tom & Jerry: Deluxe Anniversary Collection"

Many people grew up watching Tom and Jerry cartoons, and they were consistently inventive with various scenarios and schemes. The two-disc collection includes 20 of the best cartoons on disc one with disc two featuring Tom and Jerry cartoons that followed the very popular MGM shorts. A couple of examples are: Jerry dancing with Gene Kelly from "Anchors Aweigh" and Tom and Jerry swimming with Esther Williams from "Dangerous When Wet."
