My recent high-frame-rate 3D Hobbit experience reminded me of this eye-popping documentary series. Rediscover the wonders of our home with Planet Earth: The Complete BBC Series on Blu-ray. $19.99 (regularly $99.98).

For Lovers of the ’80s and Time Travel

OK, ok. Technically, Part III was released in 1990, but close enough. The Back to the Future trilogy is everything everyone loves about the ’80s: Enthusiasm for special effects, a certain puffy-vest good-naturedness and Michael J. Fox. Make your favorite Milliennial suffering from early-onset-nostalgia very, very happy with this 25th Edition Blu-Ray set. $30.49 (regularly $59.98)

For Fans of Westerns Served Spaghetti Style

Get the strong, silent and seraped type on your list The Clint Eastwood Star Collection.  Study up on Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars (1964), For a Few Dollars More (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), plus American Ted Post’s 1968 Hang ‘Em High before going to see Quentin Tarantino’s tribute to the genre, Django Unchained, this Christmas. $9.99 (regularly $24.98)

For Rom-Com Smarty Pants

You can’t go wrong with this quartet of Katherine Hepburn-led romantic comedies that prove that the genre and high IQs aren’t mutually exclusive.

A steal at $8.99 (regularly $27.92)
