THE CALL Halle Berry stars as a 911 operator trying to save kidnapped teen Abigail Breslin (“Little Miss Sunshine”), who’s stuck in a psycho’s trunk with a dying cellphone. Grueling, effective suspense, and the scenes in the call center are novel, but the movie gets increasingly stupid as it caves into thriller clichés. Extras: making-of featurette; audio commentary, with Berry, Breslin, and filmmakers. (Sony, $30.99; Blu-ray, $40.99)
HELP! The Beatles’ second feature film comes to Blu-ray. It’s both zanier and far more plot-driven than its splendid predecessor, “A Hard Day’s Night.” That’s a great comedy. This one’s merely (merely?) a very good one. Besides the title number, songs include “Ticket to Ride,” “The Night Before,” and “Another Girl.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
