Kenneth Turan's DVD picks: Movies with music, from Bugs Bunny to Black Flag

"Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces" and "The Decline of Western Civilization" are Kenneth Turan's DVD picks this week.

Every film with music as the key element is not a musical -- not even close. New to DVD are two very different collections in which music is central and remarkable.

For animation fans, Warner Home Video is offering "Looney Tunes Musical Masterpieces," which showcases 18 memorable cartoons, including the celebrated "What's Opera, Doc?" and "Rabbit of Seville," where great music is front and center.

Featuring personal looks at bands such as "Germs," "Black Flag" and "X," these films involve you no matter what your musical taste.
