“Planes, Trains & Automobiles”
Blu-ray ($19.99)

Director John Hughes’ evergreen ’80s classic about two comically mismatched traveling companions—a business exec (Steve Martin) and traveling salesman (John Candy)—trying to make their way home for Thanksgiving celebrates its 25th anniversary with this bonus-added Blu-ray edition. Extras include a retrospective about the late director’s career, with interviews from many of the actors who worked with him; a making-of documentary about the movie; and a tribute to John Candy, who died in 1994. The Hughes retrospective, for all you movie buffs, is titled “Life Moves Pretty Fast.” If you catch the reference, to another one of his classic movies from the era, count yourself a true-blue ’80s movie fan.
