Home Video Report: Oscar Hosts’ Vehicles On DVD

127-hours-franco screams

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - There are some interesting items on this week’s home video list.

First, Christina Aguilera playing a small-town girl dreaming of success as a lounge performer, and Cher taking her under her wing, in the movie Burlesque.

Then there’s Jake Gyllenhaal and 2011 Oscar co-host Anne Hathaway in a low comedy, Love and Other Drugs.  Jill Clayburgh is also featured.

Oscar nominee (and 2011 co-host) James Franco stars in 127 Hours (above), the tale of a mountain climber trapped in an isolated canyon. Amber Tamblyn and Kate Burton are also featured.

Then there’s the popular PBS mini-series “Pioneers of Television,” highlighting TV’s early years and such formative genres as westerns, science fiction, crime, and kids’ shows, to name a few.

Blu-ray has re-released Walt Disney’s Bambi, from 1942.  You might need to play grief counselor when Bambi’s mother meets the hunter in the woods.
