This week is all about aliens—both good and bad.

A few of this week’s Blu-ray releases celebrate out-of-this-world characters. In fact, we could even argue that Little Shop of Horrors is one of them. Although we can certainly appreciate a good intergalatic contest, the must-have Blu-ray for the week is pretty clear. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial snags this week’s spotlight.

Steven Spielberg’s classic has come to Blu-ray, and it’s an absolute treat. Besides the beautiful story, this release offers a nice little viewing experience, with a restored image, a 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track, and a hearty collection of extras.

Besides the aliens, we have a bit of Hitchcock, a Disney classic, an ab-tastic Tom Cruise, and much more.

Did we miss one of your favorites for the week? Have something to say about one of this week’s new releases? Sound off in the comments below. Otherwise, all of these titles are out now, except where noted. Enjoy!
