This week’s home entertainment releases include the action-packed Pacific Rim: Uprising, a Steven Soderbergh film that was shot entirely on a iPhone, and my favorite film of the year so far, a wickedly dark satire from the creator of Veep that is based on a French graphic novel about the power struggle following the death of Stalin, plus the final season of the sci-fi series Dark Matter, and a new high-def restoration of the classic Tom Baker Doctor Who episodes.

This week’s home entertainment releases include a rebooted Tomb Raider, a sensitive coming-of-age saga from Green Lantern scribe Greg Berlanti, the disc debut of the superb Netflix/Dreamworks’ revival of Voltron, as well as the third season of Syfy horror anthology series Channel Zero, and the second season of the new Berserk anime.
