Every Tuesday we run down new movie and television releases that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home. New on shelves this week are 10 Cloverfield Lane, 45 Years, Eddie the Eagle, Star Trek: The Original Series, and more.

10 Cloverfield Lane Blu-ray Box Cover Art10 Cloverfield Lane (Dan Trachtenberg) Rated PG-13 [1h 44min] – After getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack. Starring John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher Jr.

Cloverfield is one of the best creature features of our time – you can say all you want about the first-person perspective, it’s totally engaging, thrilling, and has all the right beats to maintain the gripping tension it builds. Released only months after its initial announcement, many wondered how 10 Cloverfield Lane would relate to its predecessor. Would it be a sequel? A spin-off? Something completely different? Jumping right in, I had no expectations as to what 10 Cloverfield Lane could be. What I got was a fantastic, character piece and survivalist thriller. The performances from the Goodman, Winstead, and Gallagher Jr. are captivating and the mystery of the story is engaging. Despite it not truly being anything like Cloverfield, I welcome this unique kind of Twilight Zone-esque episodic cinema. As a fan of Dan Trachtenberg’s work as an entertainment journalist, as well as his Portal short film, the commentary track with both Dan and J.J. is so fascinating to listen to. And the behind the scenes footage is really mesmerizing to see how they were able to create the feeling of isolation and paranoia.

Special features include:

  • Commentary by director Dan Trachtenberg and producer J.J. Abrams (Blu-ray Only)
  • Over 30 minutes of Behind-The-Scenes Footage (Blu-ray Only)

45 Years DVD Box Cover Art45 Years (Andrew Haigh) Rated R [1h 35min] – A married couple preparing to celebrate their wedding anniversary receives shattering news that promises to forever change the course of their lives. Starring Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtenay, and Geraldine James

There are certain, wonderfully made films that are so riveting and yet so emotionally driven that it’s hard watch more than once – or at least provide enough time between viewings. 45 Years is one of those films. It’s not that it’s hard to watch, but the plot is so depressing and poignant that it is not a movie that will make you feel happy at the end. It is fully rich in gripping character moments and a beautiful performance from Charlotte Rampling. Sadly there are no special features for this film.

Special features include:

Eddie the Eagle Blu-ray Box Cover ArtEddie the Eagle (Dexter Fletcher) Rated PG-13 [1hr 46min] – The story of Eddie Edwards, the notoriously tenacious British underdog ski jumper who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics. Starring Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, and Tom Costello

Knowing nothing about Michael “Eddie” Edwards, I had little expectations as to what kind of person he was. However, based on the trailers the story was told right in front of me. But I kept an open mind and was delighted by the little underdog tale. For starters, Taron Egerton is an absolute marvel as Eddie; if you saw him Kingsman: The Secret Service you wouldn’t even recognize him here. Egerton completely transforms as Eddie and brings the character to life, portraying the “heroic failure” as the real life Eddie was labeled. Hugh Jackman does his Hugh Jackman thing with the finesse and gravitas we know and love. Eddie the Eagle isn’t a particularly surprising movie. The story is pretty cut and dry, but the themes and light-hearted nature is touching and really helps you believe in a bigger reason to go to the Olympics other than for glory and medals. The special features are pretty thorough in sharing the true story of Eddie and how the filmmakers came to telling his story. It’s pretty interesting to note that this is the same Olympic winter games that the Jamaican bobsled team attended that the movie Cool Runnings was based on.

Special features include:

  • Let The Games Begin: Soaring with Eddie the Eagle Documentary
    • All or Nothing: The Hero’s Heart
    • An Unlikely Friendship: Eddie & Peary
    • Attitude is Altitude: Filming the Ski Jumps
  • Still Gallery

Shark Week Jawsome Encounters DVD Box Cover Art

Shark Week: Jawsome Encounters Rated TV-14 [47 min] – For the past 28 years, Discovery Channel has captured the world’s attention with Shark Week, an annual televised event that explores the ocean’s most magnificent creatures. Featuring 13 fintastic episodes from the 2014 season, dive deep into the mystery of “zombie sharks” in New Zealand, get up close and personal with Tiger Sharks lurking below the surface in idyllic Hawaii, and explore Great Whites off the coast of Australia.

As someone who grew up obsessed with sharks, my fascination for the epic beasties has waned over the years. While others mark Shark Week on their calendars, it barely registers to me as a thing. So I decided to delve back into the world of sharks. As Vin Diesel puts it, “one last ride.” I found this collection of Shark Week episodes to be pretty enthralling. Sure, you know they’ll find their shark or capture the footage they need to fulfill a compelling voyage, but these Discovery editors sure know how to work their magic to keep your attention. While my interest in sharks has lessened, it’s not hard to be hooked by this collection of Shark Week‘s best bites.

Special features include:

  • No special features included
