Among DVDs released this week:

"Beowulf" —** — All the digital bells and whistles in the world can't conceal how hollow this animated adventure is at its core. PG-13 (violence, gore, nudity, vulgarity, profanity, brief sex), Paramount

"The Darjeeling Limited" —*** — It's a little warmer and more dramatic, but Wes Anderson's latest is still rather quirky and goofy. R (profanity, drugs, violence, brief sex, brief partial nudity), Fox

"Death at a Funeral" —** — A series of good jokes followed by bad jokes followed by really awful jokes. R (profanity, drugs, vulgarity, nudity, violence, slurs), Fox/MGM

"30 Days of Night" —** — This comics-based vampire yarn is a real mess. R (violence, gore, profanity, drugs, vulgarity), Sony

Among DVDs released March 4:

"Into the Wild" —**Sean Penn's adaptation of the best-selling book is touching, thoughtful, sad, funny, sweet and ultimately redemptive — all at once. R (violence, profanity, nudity, gore, brief sex, vulgarity, brief drugs), Paramount

"Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" —**This family-friendly comic fantasy has some charms. G (slapstick violence, mild vulgarity), Fox
