Black Friday shoppers will have to settle for older titles as it's slim pickings for new DVD / Blu-ray releases:
''The Expendables 2'' - An all-star cast of action stars - Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Liam Hemsworth - reassembles as a band of mercenaries who set out on what is supposed to be a simple job. But when one of them gets killed, it turns personal and potentially calamitous as they must prevent weapons-grade plutonium from getting into the wrong hands.
Stallone, who directed the first film, turns over the reins to Simon West (''Con Air,'' ''Lara Croft: Tomb Raider''), who provides a commentary track. Other extras include deleted scenes, a gag reel and the featurettes ''Gods of War: Asembling Earth's Mightiest Anti-Heroes,'' ''Big Guns, Bigger Heroes: The 1980s and the Rise of the Action Film,'' ''On the Assault: The Real-Life Weaponry of the Expendables'' and ''Guns for Hire: The Real Expendables.'' (Lionsgate Home Entertainment, $29.95 DVD, $39.99 Blu-ray)
''Tarantino XX'' - To mark the 20th anniversary of the release of his first film, ''Reservoir Dogs,'' and to prime audiences for his Christmas release ''Django Unchained,'' this set compiles the seven features Quentin Tarantino has directed - ''Reservoir Dogs,'' ''Pulp Fiction,'' ''Jackie Brown,'' ''Death Proof,'' ''Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2'' and ''Inglourious Basterds'' - and one he wrote, ''True Romance.''
Considering how verbose Tarantino is, it's surprising the only film that features a commentary track by him is ''True Romance,'' the one he didn't direct. Each film comes with extensive bonus features, many of which were included in previous editions of the films. But this box set also boasts five hours of new bonus features, including a critics' retrospective on Tarantino's career and a segment called ''20 Years of Filmmaking'' that includes interviews with critics, stars and fellow filmmakers. (Lionsgate Home Entertainment, $119.99 Blu-ray)
''Bringing Up Bobby'' - Famke Janssen (Jean Grey in the ''X-Men'' movies) wrote and directed this film about a con artist who moves to a small Oklahoma town with her son in order to start a new, law-abiding life, but her past and her son's actions complicate the plan. Milla Jovovich, Spencer List, Bill Pullman, Marcia Cross and Rory Cochrane star. (Monterey Video, $26.95 DVD)
''Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups'' - A litter of mischievous pups wreaks havoc at Santa's workshop, but they cause real problems when they discover a magic crystal and start granting wishes on their own, including the wish of an unhappy boy to make Christmas go away forever. The human cast includes Cheryl Ladd, Danny Woodburn, Pat Finn, Kaitlyn Maher, Josh Feldman, George Newbern and Obba Babatunde. (Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, $29.99 DVD, $39.99 Blu-ray/DVD combo)
''The Replacements: Color Me Obsessed'' - This documentary looks at the career of the Minneapolis indie rockers by keeping the focus on its fans, which include many bands (The Hold Steady, Goo Goo Dolls, Husker Du, The Decemberists, Titus Andronicus) and critics (Robert Christgau, Jim DeRogatis, Legs McNeil, Greg Kot). (What Were We Thinking, $19.95 DVD)
