RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Black Rock
There really isn't a lot to talk about this week, as far as home releases are concerned. There is the big, explodey blockbuster franchise sequel, of course, and an indie thriller, plus a few very small films and a handful of reissues, but not a whole lot to get excited about (unless you're a Guillermo del Toro fan). Click through for the full list.

Digital Multiplex: G.I. Joes and Dragon Tattoos
The biggest movie we have on tap this week in streaming video is a big action sequel to a relatively poorly received film. After that, Netflix has got some worthy new choices added to their lineup, including the first installment of a major Swedish crime thriller franchise, another big action sequel, and a few compelling documentaries, to name a few. Read on to find out what's available to watch right now.

Box Office Guru: G.I. Joe Rocks Easter Weekend
Testosterone ruled the Easter frame as the 3D action sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation opened at number one, but Tyler Perry's latest offering Temptation also scored a strong debut of its own in third place. The animated holdover The Croods held up well in its second weekend pulling in families over the school holiday helping the box office beat Easter business from the past two years.

Total Recall: Movies Based on Toys and Games
Ready or not, a Real American Hero is invading the box office this weekend, and to help herald G.I. Joe: Retaliation's arrival in theaters, we decided to dedicate this week's list to other toys and/or games that made the jump from store shelves to the big screen. It would be wise not to expect any Best Picture winners in here, obviously, but you might be surprised by the amount of good old-fashioned nostalgic fun that can come from reliving memories of movies from an often rather cynically motivated genre. (Word to the wise: This is also one of the most 1980s-centric lists we've done in quite some time.) Get ready to beg your parents for more action figures and stuffed animals -- it's time for Total Recall!
