The government shutdown can’t pull the plug on great home entertainment this week. We have giant monsters, robots, and Charlie Hunnam in 3D spectacle Pacific Rim, and a hysterical female cop buddy flick, The Heat. Finally, Sigourney Weaver will both break your heart and inspire you in the re-release of must-see TV movie, Prayers For Bobby.

 

The Heat

($39.99 Blu-ray, $29.98 DVD; 20th Century Fox)

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig re-teams with Melissa McCarthy for this hysterical female twist on the cop buddy movie. Retentive FBI agent Sandra Bullock teams up with street-smart, gruff Boston cop (McCarthy) to bring down a diabolical drug dealer. Presented in both unrated and theatrical versions, extras include commentaries, bloopers, alternate scenes, featurettes, and more.

 

Pacific Rim

($44.95 3D Blu-ray, $35.99 Blu-ray, $28.98 DVD; Warner Brothers)

When giant monsters known as Kaiju invade the earth, we fight them with giant robots called Jaeger. Can a Jaeger operator who lost his brother during his last battle save us? Director Guillermo Del Toro pays homage to Godzilla-style Japanese flicks with loads of 3D fun-sized action set pieces and memorable characters. Extras include extensive making-of featurettes and “focus points,” bloopers, deleted scenes, and more.

 

Prayers For Bobby

($14.98 DVD; Lionsgate)

A powerful Lifetime movie, about the real-life, profound transformation of a deeply religious mother, Mary, following her tortured gay son’s suicide, features a bravura performance from Sigourney Weaver. This DVD re-release includes a handful of extras: cast interviews, behind the scenes, a featurette about the film’s road to the GLAAD Awards, and pro-gay PSAs from Weaver and Daniel Radcliffe.
