‘Hatfields & McCoys’
Blu-ray ($55.99)

You may hear “family feud” and think of a TV game show, but the legendary clash of hillbilly clans depicted in this five-hour made-for-TV History Channel movie (which originally aired as a Memorial Day weekend mini-series) was all-out war. Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton star as the two patriarchs who lock horns in the late 1800s as a murder and a misunderstanding lead to bloodshed and vengeance in the hills of West Virginia and Kentucky—and a bitter conflict that would stretch on for decades and ultimately leave its mark on American history.
