(Entertainment Weekly) -- Peckinpah, Pocahontas, and eight other things we recommend this week:
1. "Junebug" Amy Adams is fetchingly charming as a pregnant Southern naif mesmerized by her big-city in-laws in Phil Morrison's 2005 Sundance hit, now on DVD.
2. "The Book of Daniel" We'll miss this NBC drama -- recently canceled -- in which pill-popping priest Aidan Quinn administered to his troubled flock (with a little help from Jesus).
3. "Rawkus Records: Best of Decade 1" Fifteen fine cuts from the indie label that cultivated hip-hop artists like Mos Def and Talib Kweli.
4. "At Canaan's Edge," Taylor Branch The final installment in a landmark civil rights trilogy indelibly casts Martin Luther King Jr. as a modern-day Moses.
5. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje on "Lost" As Mr. Eko, the Brit actor walks softly, carries a big stick, and is the show's most compelling castaway.
