“KILLERS,” starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. Amiable enough action-comedy pairs Kutcher and Heigl as a recently married couple whose infringing domestic doldrums are whisked away in an instant once Kutcher reveals himself to be a spy on the run from what would appear to be a battalion of hitmen. Sort of a lighter version of “True Lies,” “Killers” fails to break any new ground, but provides some good undemanding entertainment all the same, and benefits from an eclectic supporting cast that includes Tom Selleck, Catherine O’Hara and Alex Borstein. Rated PG-13. Running time: 1:33.

Suggested retail price: DVD $29.95; Blu-ray $39.99. 

“SOLITARY MAN,” starring Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon, Danny Devito and Jenna Fischer. Great fun with Douglas playing Ben Kalman, yet another flawed but fascinating character. Ben had a thriving career, a beautiful family and a luxury apartment in the heart of Manhattan, but the same irresistible charm that got him to the top is also the cause of his downfall. He desperately attempts to regain his status the only way he knows how: through a woman. When his wandering eye turns to the wrong woman, he looks to his family and longtime friend (DeVito) to get him back on his feet. Rated R. Running time: 1:30.

“CHUCK: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON,” starring Zachary Levi and Adam Baldwin. More nerdy espionage as everybody’s favorite electronics store employee turned secret agent has more data downloaded into his brain, becoming privy not only to more government secrets but receiving the added benefit of deadly fighting skills. Special features include “declassified” scenes and a gag reel. Running time: 13:37.

Suggested retail price: DVD $59.98; Blu-ray $69.97. 

“THE OFFICE: SEASON SIX,” starring Steve Carell and Rainn Wilson. Jim and Pam finally tie the knot, Michael has to contend with Kathy Bates as his new superior, Daryl moves out of the warehouse, and Andy tries desperately to put the moves on Erin in yet another awkwardly hilarious season of this acclaimed workplace mockumentary. Special features include hours of deleted scenes. Running time: 9:32.

Suggested retail price: DVD $59.98; Blu-ray $69.98. 

“SUPERNATURAL: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON,” starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. Popular and well-conceived fantasy series finds the ever-resilient Winchester brothers embarking on a particularly high-stakes mission: locate the devil and kill him. Special features include “apocalypse survival guides.” Running time: 15:24.

Suggested retail price: DVD $59.98; Blu-ray $69.97. 


“FORBIDDEN PLANET,” starring Leslie Nielsen and Anne Francis. The granddaddy of all sci-fi movies, this pioneering 1956 space opera almost singlehandedly jump-started the rocket-ship-and-UFO craze of the ’50s with then-revolutionary special effects that still retain a great deal of charm, and a compelling plot that invokes Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” Rated G. Running time: 1:38.

Suggested retail price: Blu-ray $24.98. 

“TOMMY,” starring Roger Daltery and Ann-Margret. The gloriously unsubtle Ken Russell (“The Lair of the White Worm”) proved the ideal visionary to direct this still-controversial and ever-strange rock opera, set to the timeless music of The Who and detailing the exploits of a young man struck blind, deaf and dumb after witnessing the murder of his father and eventually becoming a modern god with a talent for pinball. Highly influential, visually stunning and off-the-wall throughout, the fun of “Tommy” lies not only in singing along with the excellent soundtrack, but in spotting appearances from the likes of Jack Nicholson, Oliver Reed and Elton John, among others. Well ahead of its time, and as such may play even better today. Rated PG. Running time: 1:51.

Suggested retail price: Blu-ray $30.99. 


“BLOOD INTO WINE,” starring Maynard James Keenan and Eric Glomski. Fans of the band Tool and its frontman, the enigmatic Keenan, may be taken aback to learn of his latest endeavor: the decidedly calmer pastime of winemaking. Taking the same no-holds-barred approach that he employs in the studio, Keenan is by turns a force of nature and a guarded hermit, and his off-kilter intensity makes him the ideal subject for a documentary, whether he’s matching wits with Tim and Eric of “Awesome Show” fame in a staged interview, or attempting to convince skeptics that Arizona is primed to become the next Napa Valley. A fun fusion of two rarely-linked subjects, “Blood” is a worthy addition to the recent and oft-worthwhile glut of oddball documentaries. Running time: 1:39.

Suggested retail price: DVD $19.95; Blu-ray $29.95. 

“MACGRUBER,” starring Will Forte and Ryan Phillippe. Vastly underrated “Saturday Night Live” sketch-turned-movie showcases Forte’s go-for-broke comedic talent as the titular hero, a tragically distractible soldier of fortune out to stop the diabolical Dieter von Cunth (Val Kilmer) from setting off a nuclear warhead and blowing up Washington, D.C. Aiding Macgruber in his quest are fellow “SNL” vet Kristen Wiig and Phillippe as his straight-laced partner. Unpredictable and outrageous, “Macgruber” is the best big-screen offering to come out of the “SNL” franchise since “Wayne’s World.” Rated R. Running time: 1:30.
