Dallas Buyers Club Universal, $29.98; Blu-ray, $34.98 Available on VOD beginning Tuesday As the Oscars approach, some of this year's big contenders are starting to show up on home video, including this best picture based on the true story of self-medicating Texas AIDS patient Ron Woodroof, who started slinging drugs not approved by the Food and Drug Administration to people who were similarly suffering.

There was a hole in the sleeve of Adam Brody's threadbare T-shirt. His eyes were still puffy from sleep, even though it was nearly noon.
