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 synopsis for “Safe”:
A second-rate cage fighter on the mixed martial arts circuit, Luke Wright lives a numbing life of routine beatings and chump change – until the day he blows a rigged fight. Wanting to make an example of him, the Russian Mafia murders his family and banishes him from his life forever. This leaves Luke to wander the streets of New York destitute. He’s haunted by guilt, tormented by the knowledge that he will always be watched and anyone he develops a relationship with will also be killed.
But when he witnesses a frightened 12-year-old Chinese girl, Mei, being pursued by the same gangsters who killed his wife, Luke impulsively jumps to action – and straight into the heart of a deadly, high-stakes war. Mei, he discovers, is no ordinary girl. She’s an orphaned math prodigy forced to work for the Triads as a “counter”.
He discovers she holds in her memory a priceless numerical code that the Triads, the Russian mob and a corrupt faction of the NYPD will kill for. Realizing he’s the only person Mei can trust, Luke tears a swath through the city’s brutal underworld to save an innocent girl’s life and perhaps even redeem his own.
