This Week on DVD and Blu-ray: Cowboys & Aliens, The Hangover: Part II, Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future: The Complete Series

A couple of the summer’s biggest disappointments hit stores this week as Cowboys & Aliens and The Hangover: Part II make their way to DVD and Blu-ray along with one of the surprise hits of the year, The Help. We’ve also got the Jim Carrey family comedy Mr. Popper’s Penguins and John Madden’s The Debt, plus the acclaimed French thriller Point Blank, Criterion’s re-release of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes on Blu, and new Extended Editions of the original The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo Trilogy. In my mind, however, the essential releases of the week are the HBO series 24/7 Penguins/Capitals: Road to the NHL Winter Classic and the ’80s live action sci-fi series Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future: The Complete Series. Time to break out your interactive toys and take on the Bio-Dread Empire! What will you be buying or renting this week? Check out the full list of releases after the jump.

    I saw Cowboys & Aliens and I wasn’t disappointed at all, if anyone wants to check it out. It’s primarily a Western, so if Westerns don’t interest you, you probably shouldn’t bother, but I actually enjoyed the combination of the Western and Science Fiction genres.
