Here is a look at what’s new on DVD this week.

Many of these titles were released on April 23.

‘THE IMPOSSIBLE’ ★★★★

(2012, Lionsgate; PG-13, 1 hour and 54 minutes) The tsunami that devastated the Pacific Basin in 2004 remains one of the worst natural disasters in history. In this terrifying triumph of special effects, towering walls of water loom from the sea. Surely this was a blow from hell. In Juan Antonio Bayona’s film, they seem lost in it, engulfed by it, damned by it. One of the best films of 2012. (Roger Ebert)
