'Paul Williams: Still Alive' is out on DVD today./


Written By by Whitney Matheson, USA TODAY

Lately I’ve been spending my free time watching House of Cards on Netflix, but here are a few other offerings if that’s not your thing:

- Paul Williams: Still Alive. Last week I mentioned this doc, which catches up with the award-winning songwriter and entertainer. (He wrote Rainbow Connection, among other classics.) Even if you don’t know his name, you’ll probably recognize his face from dozens (hundreds?) of TV appearances on Carson’s The Tonight Show and other programs.

- Celeste and Jesse Forever. Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones play a married couple that go through a tough breakup. Despite the dire premise, the cast creates several funny moments.

- House of Cards Trilogy: The Original U.K. Series Remastered. Catch up with the inspiration for Netflix’s buzzed-about show.

- Peter Pan. Disney re-releases the classic.

- Flight. Watch Denzel Washington deliver his (millionth) Oscar-nominated performance.

- Side by Side. Keanu Reeves talks to Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, James Cameron, David Fincher, George Lucas, David Lynch and other big names about the age of digital moviemaking.

Also out: Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, Alex Cross, Cougar Town: The Complete Third Season, Deadfall, Here Comes the Boom, A Late Quartet, Little White Lies

Blu-ray highlight: Cabaret is out in the format today!
