'Les Miserables' and 'The Hobbit' Among March DVD Releases
March 2013 provides movie fans with several exceptional DVD and Blu-ray releases. The choices range anywhere from "Les Miserables" to "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" to "Zero Dark Thirty" and "This Is 40".
Director Tom Hooper adapted the legendary musical into this Oscar-nominated big-screen version, starring Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, a former prisoner who flees lifelong nemesis Javert (Russell Crowe) and finds redemption in 17th-century France. The movie is almost entirely sung, which doesn't always work, but it's a triumph when it does. Case in point: Anne Hathaway's performance of "I Dreamed a Dream" as Fantine, the role that won her an Oscar. A commentary track and a few behind-the-scenes featurettes are included on the DVD.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Peter Jackson stepped back behind the camera for this Lord of the Rings prequel, starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. The movie, the first of three installments, follows Bilbo on an adventure into Middle-earth with a group of dwarves and wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen, reprising his role). The movie is visually stunning - and benefits from the appearance of Gollum - but it's ultimately an overlong journey. DVD extras include a preview for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Jackson's production videos.
