This week's DVDs include Pixar's latest, along with comedy and drama movies

Options look good for film fans.

For movie fans who don't feel like braving the crowds at the theater, guess what? This week's new DVD releases are all good, so there's absolutely no need to leave home to see a good flick. If animated movies are your thing, you are in luck, because Pixar's latest, Brave, is new on Blu-ray on Tuesday.

Not a fan of Pixar? Well, okay, but you're missing out. If you want good drama, Oliver Stone's latest effort, Savages, is also new on DVD this week.

I've only seen one of the three new DVD releases I'm highlighting for you this week. Brave is not my favorite Pixar film of all-time, but it's not my least favorite either (Cars 2, anyone?). It's a great little movie and it's certainly entertaining enough. As with all Pixar movies, the animation is positively incredible.

Oliver Stone's epic crime thriller drama Savages, starring Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro and Taylor Kitsch, is also new this week on DVD. This film, based on the 2010 novel Savages by Don Winslow, deals with the dangers of drugs and the Mexican drug cartels. The book was fantastic, but I haven't seen the movie yet, so I can't make a recommendation. Salma Hayek got rave reviews for her role as a cartel head, so for that reason alone, I'll be watching.

Finally, last but not least, the comedy movie The Watch is finally out on DVD. Bad reviews kept me from seeing this one in the theater, but I am more than willing to give it a shot as a rental. I love Ben Stiller, and I used to really like Vince Vaughn -- until he started doing one cruddy movie after another. I fear this will be the case with The Watch, but I'm going to see it anyway.

What do you plan on seeing this week, if anything?
