DVD reviews: ‘Game of Thrones’

Helen Sloan/HBO

GAME OF THRONES: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON  With time to spare for the arrival of season 3 of the cable series, on March 31, last year’s 10 episodes arrive on disc. Extras: multiple featurettes and audio commentaries, in-episode guide. (HBO, $59.99; Blu-ray, $79.98)

MONSTERS, INC.  Sulley and Mike would have their hands full, literally, with this five-disc “ultimate collector’s edition,” whose release is meant to whet appetites for the arrival of “Monsters University” in theaters, come June. (Disney-Pixar, $49.99; three-disc set, $39.99)

BEST IN SHOW  Hard on the heels of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show comes the Blu-ray release of this funniest of all canine comedies. Christopher Guest and his stock company have never surpassed this deadpan-delirious sendup of the show-dog circuit. (Warner Home Video, $19.98)

LES MISÉRABLES  After Victor Hugo wrote the novel, but before it became a musical, “Les Miz” was a movie — several, actually, and this 1958 French version, with Jean Gabin as Jean Valjean, may be the most celebrated. (Olive Films, $24.95; Blu-ray, $29.95)

THE THIEF OF BAGDAD In 1924, Douglas Fairbanks had one of his greatest successes — and the Silent Era had one of its greatest action epics — with this tale of “Arabian Nights” derring-do. Extras: making-of featurette, photo gallery. (Cohen Film Collection, $24.98; Blu-ray, $29.98)


THE DAWN PATROL
The 1930 original, starring Richard Barthelmess and Douglas Fairbanks Jr., was Howard Hawks’s talkies directorial debut. It creaks some, but numerous Hawksian touches await the aficionado. (Warner Archive, $18.95, already available)
