Anyone hankering for an old-fashioned "angry, old man" movie could do a lot worse than "Harry Brown," a moody, at times brutal drama about what happens when a London pensioner decides he's had it with the gangs in his neighborhood. Michael Caine plays the title character, a retired soldier who terrorizes criminals after their misbehavior prevents him from saying goodbye to his dying wife. The tone of "Harry Brown" ranges from somnambulant to wildly melodramatic, but Caine holds down the center well, and his revenge against the punks is cathartic to watch. The DVD and Blu-ray come with deleted scenes and a commentary track featuring director Daniel Barber, producer Kris Thykier and Caine.

It's not quite right to call "Marmaduke" an adaptation of Brad Anderson's long-running comic strip, since about the only thing that the movie and the comic have in common is the title character: an enormous, ungainly Great Dane. Owen Wilson provides the voice of Marmaduke, who suffers a crisis of cool when his owner moves to California and he's forced to socialize with some snooty new dogs. It's generic, unimaginative kiddie fare, stamped with a brand name. The DVD and Blu-ray add deleted scenes and featurettes.
Sons of Anarchy: Season Two
20th Century Fox, $59.98; Blu-ray, $69.99
The first season of FX's "Sons of Anarchy" established the Hamlet-like rivalry between the grizzled leader of a small-town California motorcycle gang and his disgruntled son-in-law; the second season steps on the gas, throwing in white supremacists, foreign gun-runners and pornography magnates, all complicating the show's central conflicts. "Sons of Anarchy" keeps getting pulpier and more intense season to season and week to week, but it remains rooted in the common dilemma of a young man trying to forge his own identity without wasting his legacy. The DVD and Blu-ray adds a pair of featurettes and commentary on selected episodes.
Why Did I Get Married Too?
Lionsgate, $29.95; Blu-ray, $39.99
Proving there's a fine line between giving the people what they want and cashing in, Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married Too?" brings back the cast of troubled couples from "Why Did I Get Married?" for an island vacation, where they bicker and commiserate and deal with trumped-up personal crises. It's all amiable enough, but more the stuff of TV melodramas than major motion pictures. Still, Perry's fans should enjoy it — and the featurettes on the DVD and Blu-ray.
