This week there is a cornucopia of new home video releases arriving on store shelves—everything from animation and action to an old classic.
The Wind Rises is an animation from Director Hayao Miyazaki that draws a story of hope and creativity while glossing over the real purpose behind the arms race these characters are involved in.

A young woman is caught between life and death in the movie If I Stay.

An old man has his life disrupted when his son shows up on the doorstep with a granddaughter he never knew he had. His son asks him to care for the little girl while the young man serves a prison sentence. But it will take some neighborly intervention to help soften this grumpy grandpa in the movie And So It Goes.
