Genesis DVD box tops this week's picks

TOP PICK

Genesis: The Movie Box

(Rhino)

This DVD set gathers four Genesis concert films from the '80s and '90s. So yeah, you're stuck with Phil Collins instead of Peter Gabriel. Still, the soon-to-be Rock Hall inductees dip into their back catalog quite a bit on Three Sides Live, The Mama Tour, Live at Wembley Stadium and The Way We Walk, busting out some old-school prog wankery. Bonus: VH1's Behind the Music.

CD

The Doors: Live in New York

(Rhino/Bright Midnight Archives)

Recorded a year after Jim Morrison allegedly showed his dick to an audience and a year before he died, this six-disc set collects the Doors' final four New York concerts from 1970. There are plenty of favorites here ("Break on Through," "The End," "Light My Fire"), as well as covers of blues classics like "Little Red Rooster" and "Crawling King Snake."

DVD

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

(Universal)

Guy Ritchie's debut movie is basically British Tarantino. But what a ride. Finally available on Blu-ray, the blazing 1998 film — about a group of guys who owe a mobster a half-million dollars — still kicks ass. Bloody, raunchy and stuffed with lightning-quick dialogue, it's a great companion piece to Pulp Fiction.

DVD

SpongeBob SquarePants: Season 6, Volume 1

(Paramount/Nickelodeon)

The absorbent, yellow and porous dude caps his 10th anniversary with a two-disc set that gathers the first 23 episodes from the sixth season. The bonus shorts are fun for fans, but you gotta see "SpongeBob vs. the Big One," where Johnny Depp plays surfing guru Jack Kahuna Laguna. Plus, there's lots of Squidward throughout.

VIDEOGAME

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

(Nintendo)

One of Nintendo's most beloved characters returns with her best portable outing in years. This DS game strays a bit from the ongoing saga, but you'll hardly notice. There's a lot going on here, especially great new puzzles that'll work your brain. The story is typically (and needlessly) convoluted, but like most Zelda adventures, prepare to get lost in her world for a while.
