Sorry, What to Watch took a turkey day break as last week was really light on new product worth mentioning. This week? Pretty much the same but we don’t want you to miss us too badly. Here’s five recent Blu-ray, DVD, and streaming releases that may have caught your attention on new release shelves lately, ranked in the order we’d add them to our holiday wish list.

Here is the “She’s Out of My League” plot description:
In the comedy “She’s Out of My League,” Kirk (Jay Baruchel of “Knocked Up” and “Tropic Thunder”) is an average Joe who can’t believe his luck. Though he’s stuck in a seemingly dead-end job as an airport security agent, against all odds Molly (Alice Eve) – a successful and outrageously gorgeous babe – falls for him.
Kirk is stunned. So are his friends, his family and even his ex-girlfriend. Now he has to figure out how to make the relationship work even though he’d be the first to admit she’s totally out of his league.
