‘The Veronica Mars Movie,’ ‘Son of Batman’ — DVD and Blu-ray highlights

This week’s roundup of DVD/Blue-ray highlights.

‘The Veronica Mars Movie’

I’m a longtime preacher of the awesomeness of “Veronica Mars,” and this movie is another fine installment of the series. Crowdfunded by fans on Kickstarter, the film brings back Kristen Bell and the rest of the original crew, with Veronica trying to clear her old boyfriend who is accused of murder. Here’s hoping that fans of other cult favorite series will get an opportunity to put their money where their mouths are and crowdfund more films. A “Chuck” movie, anyone?

Based on a 2006 Batman story by writer Grant Morrison and artist Andy Kubert, this film follows the Dark Knight and his new sidekick, the former assassin Damian … his preteen son. (DVD, $19.98; DVD Special Edition or Blu-ray/DVD combo, $24.98)’Honeymooners:

Three classic series from the golden age of television debut on Blu-ray with these collections.
