9. They Shall Not Grow Old

While it’s been 100 years since World War I ended, it’s an event in history that means everything to the world. Auteur Peter Jackson brings the war to life once more, telling some of the forgotten stories and experiences.

The story is told through the original footage and photography from the BBC and the Imperial War Museum. Jackson has used modern technology to tell a story for today’s world through the eyes of the people who were there.

They Shall Not Grow Old is available on DVD and Blu-ray on May 7, but is already available on Digital.

8. The Upside

There’s always a risk of doing a comedy that focuses on disability but The Upside has managed to find balance. A rich paraplegic man from the Upper East Side needs a caretaker to offer him a decent life. However, he’s at the point of giving up. His assistant, Yvonne, decides to help him by finding a new caretaker.

That caretaker is Dell, a divorced man just released from a prison sentence. The only reason he took the job was to make his parole officer happy, but he ends up finding that the job was everything he needed. Both men find a new lease on life and a friendship that never would have been if it wasn’t for Yvonne.

The Upside is on DVD and Blu-ray on May 21.
