Piranha 3D

It's killer fish! Piranha 3D has a ridiculous premise: after an underwater tremor disturbs the ocean, prehistoric piranhas come out of hiding to bring havoc to beach visitors. The film plays into its silly sense of humor with plenty of gore and gratuitous nudity, but will it pack the same punch without the 3D format at home? If you decide to take the plunge, keep an eye out for some familiar faces, including one of our people to watch Adam Scott and Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr. DVD extras include include filmmaker commentary and behind-the-scenes featurettes.

Alpha and Omega

This family animated flick follows two wolves (voiced by Justin Long and Hayden Panettiere) as they get stolen away from their pack and must find their way home. Along the way, they strike up a friendship and potential romance, despite their conflicting social circles (she's the popular wolf; he's the underdog). Though the film didn't wow critics — particularly when compared with the rest of the 2010's animated choices — kids may still enjoy catching this one at home. DVD extras include animal trivia and a log sliding interactive game.
