Wreck-It Ralph Walt Disney, $29.99; Blu-ray, $39.99/$49.99 Available on VOD beginning Tuesday Modern animated features are often so dense with inside jokes that they should come with footnotes. If nothing else, the special features on this DVD and Blu-ray help explain all the subtle nods in Disney's computer-animated action-comedy, set in the world of retro video games and thus packed with gamer gags. (The biggest help here is the Chris Hardwick-hosted "Disney Intermission," which comes up whenever viewers press "pause" on their remote, and points out some of what the animators carefully hid.)

SAN FRANCISCO - California Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris told local law enforcement agencies Tuesday that they were not obligated to comply with a federal program whose stated goal is to deport illegal immigrants convicted of serious crimes. It was Harris' first public assessment of Secure Communities. Under the program launched in 2008, all arrestees' fingerprints are sent to immigration officials, who may ask police and sheriff's departments to hold suspects for up to 48 hours after their scheduled release so they can be transferred to federal custody.
