PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The fading moments of the year 2010 bring memories of some memorable videos released in 12 crowded months.

There’s Francis Ford Coppola’s riff on the Viet Nam War in an impressive three-disc set loaded with all manner of extras and titled: “Apocalypse Now: Full Disclosure.”

There’s also the impressive: “Avatar: Extended Collector’s Edition,” which put to shame that bare-bones single-disc version released seven months prior to that aforementioned masterpiece.

Clearly the most impressive personality profile of the ‘old year’: “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work” – the unvarnished portrait of that fascinating prickly-profane comedienne.

And, closing out the old year: the release of George Clooney in “The American”, the Oliver Stone-directed: “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps”, starring Michael Douglas and Angelina Jolie as a CIA operative in the thriller: “Salt”.
