An animated movie best suited for younger audiences tops the DVD releases for the week of Nov. 2.

"Paw Patrol: The Movie": The rescue dogs of the Nickelodeon children's cartoon venture to Adventure City in their first feature film, hoping to thwart the plans of the nefarious mayor.

"Slightly stepped up from common TV animation for kids, the look of 'Paw Patrol' is below the standard detail, texture, artistic use of color and daring design of today's theatrical 3D computer visuals," writes Los Angeles Times critic Michael Ordoña in his review. However, he notes, "the show is presumably popular, so there's probably a 3- to 6-year-old audience for this out there. Accompanying adults, though, are in for a ruff time."


"Pig": Nicolas Cage stars as a former chef turned reclusive truffle hunter who must return to his former life in the city when his beloved foraging pig is stolen.

"Nine Days": A man interviews five unborn souls to determine which should be given a chance at life on Earth.


"Come True": Sci-fi horror film about a teen runaway who agrees to participate in a sleep study that quickly descends into a nightmare.

"The Crown: Season 4": Olivia Colman returns as Queen Elizabeth II as Netflix drama about the life and reign of the longtime British monarch continues, with Gillian Anderson, Emma Corrin and Stephen Boxer joining the show for Season 4.

"Kung Fu: The Complete First Season": This CW reboot of the 1970s show stars Olivia Liang as a young Chinese American woman who uses her martial arts training to protect her San Francisco community from crime and corruption.

"Mom: Season 8": The final season of the CBS sitcom finds Allison Janney's character adjusting to life without her daughter in the house.
