Napoleon Dynamite 10th Anniversary Edition
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Napoleon Dynamite comes this fuzzy, collectible, liger-fur Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack with a locker-full of special features that are more fun than big sleeves and extra tots!

Napoleon Dynamite is a new kind of hero, complete with a tight fro, sweet moon boots, and skills that can’t be topped. Napoleon spends his days drawing mythical beasts, duking it out with his brother Kip and avoiding his scheming Uncle Rico. When two new friends enter Napoleon’s life – shy Deb and mustachioed Pedro – the trio launches a campaign to elect Pedro for class president and make the student body’s wildest dreams come true. But if Pedro is to beat stuck-up Summer, Napoleon will have to unleash his secret weapon...

Garden State
Writer/director Zach Braff delivers “an Oscar-worthy performance” (CBS-TV Chicago) in this quirky, coming-of-age comedy that has been hailed as “the seminal film for today’s generation” (USA Today).

Twenty-something, emotionally-detached Andrew Largeman (Braff) returns home to New Jersey after nine, long years. Now, as he tries to re-connect with his past, a series of chance encounters with Sam (Natalie Portman) — a free-spirited girl who’s everything he isn’t — sets the stage for a fateful, mind-blowing take on what his future might hold. Co-starring Peter Sarsgaard, Ian Holm and Method Man, Garden State is “hilarious” (Rolling Stone).

Dench mesmerizes as Barbara Covett, a teacher who rules over her classroom with an iron fist, yet leads a desperate, solitary life outside it. That is, until she meets radiant new art teacher Sheba Hart (Blanchett). Although at first overjoyed with her newfound kindred spirit, when Barbara discovers that Sheba is having an affair with a teenage student, her jealously and rage spiral out of control.
