The debut of Edgar Rice Burroughs' pulp hero in the Blu-ray format allows viewers an interactive way to appreciate his recent live-action, science-fantasy adventure.
"The Avengers" continues to muscle out everything else Hollywood throws at it, easily sinking naval rival "Battleship" and other new releases.
"Battleship" has heavy-duty weaponry and an unflagging spirit of patriotism on its side, but that doesn't mean it's winning the war with critics.
Hollywood is known for snatching up best-selling books and turning them into big-screen blockbusters: "Twilight," "Harry Potter," "The Hunger Games," "The Help" and countless others.
The only reasonable way to explain "Battleship" is that it is actually a deft satire of the big-budget Hollywood action blockbuster. How else to justify its lazy conceptual gimmickry, cynical deployment of meaningless cliches, spastic narrative, visual incoherence and indifferent boredom with itself?

"I feel I grew an immense amount as an actor. On so many levels, it tested me. I wouldn't change a thing. I wouldn't take any of those choices back," Mr. Kitsch said. "I love what I'm doing. I've started to get excited again, and I think, obviously, it was hard on me that they didn't work. You have bosses, we all have bosses, you want to do well for them. But I gave everything I had."
"I know personally, and this is the main thing to me that matters most, you talk to anybody I've ever worked with, ever. They will say that I'm probably the hardest-working actor you've watched in preparation, in drive, in what I put into it," Mr. Kitsch said.
