‘The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’ and other new DVDs

It may be a sign of the times that The Post's movie critics have started reviewing films that either skip theatrical release, or have very limited screenings, before moving on to digital formats. Viewers are streaming or download the latest in cinematic entertainment from the comfort of, well, anywhere, as the connotations about movies that go "straight to DVD" are falling away. For the first installment, we highlighted three recent on-demand releases: "Trash Dance," "Syrup" and "The Happy Poet."

Here are the rest of the new releases this week:
