Will Arnett reprises his role from "The Lego Movie" to take a deep dive into the mixed-up psychology of the Caped Crusader in this hilarious superhero satire. Michael Cera is his the grisly Dark Knight's lighthearted foil as Robin, and Zach Galifianakis, Rosario Dawson and Ralph Fiennes also turn in hilarious voice performances that meld well with the silly animation.

Extras in the Blu-ray/DVD/digital copy combo include four animated shorts, deleted scenes, a slew of making-of featurettes, filmmaker commentary and promos that were produced for social media.
The 2012 reboot puts the ludicrous 1995 "Judge Dredd" film starring Sylvester Stallone to shame, telling a robust, action-packed story of the iconic comic anti-hero (Karl Urban) who acts as judge, jury and often executioner to criminals he confronts. The visuals pop in a magnificent 4K transfer. In addition to a standard Blu-ray and digital copy, there are also a slew of featurettes from the previous release.
Ex Machina 4K
This cult hit from 2015 tells a disturbing sci-fi tale of a robotic woman (Alicia Vikander), on the verge of advancing past artificial intelligence to become sentient, as she tangles mentally with a reclusive CEO (Oscar Isaac) and geeky programmer (Domhanall Gleason) who act as her cohabitants and captors. The thought-provoking film is an excellent conversation piece, with a cutting-edge blend of CGI and practical effects that pop in Ultra HD. The combo back includes the Blu-ray version and digital copies of the film, as well as a cast and crew Q&A and behind-the-scenes vignettes.
Power: Season 3
The popular Starz drama stars 50 Cent, Omari Hardwick and Naturi Naughton in a fast-paced tale of a business exec who runs an underground drug operation. The season focuses on his struggle to go straight and avoid the temptations of the underworld that have entranced him throughout his rise to the top. Extras in the Blu-ray/digital copy combo include a season two recap and a featurette that explores the show's themes.
