  • Captain Phillips

    photo for Two-time Oscar-winner Tom Hanks turns in one of his best performances in years in the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the U.S.-flagged MV Maersk Alabama off the African coast. Phillips and his crew were held hostage for ransom, setting up a tense headline-making standoff between the pirates and the U.S. Navy. Director Paul Greengrass -- no newcomer when it comes to political and action films ("Bloody Sunday," "The Bourne Supremacy," "United 93," "Green Zone") -- creates a spell-binding drama as he first keys in on the day-to-day machinations of freight shipping, then segues into high stakes action as the pirates decide to hijack the ship. Greengrass misses nothing here, and Hanks' performance as he fears for his life is so realistic that one just has to squirm with recognition. A pulse-pounding thriller with tour-de-force directing and editing, and outstanding performances by a cast of unknowns as the pirates. Extras: "Capturing Captain Phillips," a three-part, behind-the-scenes look at the film's production and real events surrounding the film; commentary with director Paul Greengrass. Vitals: Director: Paul Greengrass. Stars: Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdirahman, Faysal Ahmed, Mahat M. Ali, Catherine Keener, Yul Vazquez, Christopher Stadulis, Corey Johnson, Michael Chernus, Chris Mulkey, John Magaro, Max Martini, Maria Dizzia. 2013, CC, MPAA rating: PG-13, 134 min., Drama, Box office gross: $100.700 million, Sony. 3 stars

  • Blue Jasmine

    photo for Say what you will about the reclusive, aloof, perhaps kinky Woody Allen -- the man loves women. In particular, he loves the women in his films (sometimes literally), creating great roles for the likes of Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow, Mira Sorvino, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Scarlett Johansson, Rebecca Hall and Naomi Watts, to name just a few -- and now he's created a great one for Cate Blanchett. Blanchett puts in an Oscar-worthy tour-de-force performance as a spoiled, elegant Manhattan socialite whose life falls apart -- figuratively and literally -- after her doting businessman husband is arrested for securities fraud. Virtually penniless, she moves to San Francisco to live in her sister's apartment, where she struggles to pull herself back together again despite her upper-class snobbery rubbing up against her new blue-collar existence. She's precariously balanced on an emotional tightrope between her troubled past and her fresh start, dreaming of her lost glamour but all the while neglecting to take responsibility for her complicity in her past failings. A remarkable outing. Extras: "Notes From the Red Carpet," in which the cast discusses making the film and their take on the characters; "Blue Jasmine" cast press conference with Cate Blanchett, Peter Saarsgard and Andrew Dice Clay. Vitals: Director: Woody Allen. Stars: Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Michael Stuhlbarg, Peter Sarsgaard, Alden Ehrenreich, Louis C.K., Sally Hawkins, Bobby Cannavale, Tammy Blanchard, Andrew Dice Clay. 2013, CC, MPAA rating: PG-13, 98 min., Drama, Box office gross: $32.519 million, Sony. 3 stars

  • In a World ...

    photo for A delightful but lean comedy about a young voiceover artist (writer-director Lake Bell) who gets her first big break in the cutthroat world of movie-trailer voiceovers and then finds herself in competition with her father (Fred Melamed), the industry's reigning king, as well as his arrogant protege (Ken Marino), for the plumb announcer's role in an upcoming, big-budget teen-girl-oriented movie series. Nothing much happens as Bell waltzes from one comedic scene to another, and there's very little tension even as the voiceover artists jockey for position. Still, its an enjoyable taste of more to come from the talented Bell. Extras: Commentary with writer-director-actor Bell, deleted scenes, gag reel, six voiceover promo trailers for the film. Vitals: Director: Lake Bell. Stars: Lake Bell, Fred Melamed, Ken Marino, Demetri Martin, Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Nick Offerman, Alexandra Holden, Tig Notaro with special appearances by Eva Longoria, Geena Davis and Jeff Garlin. 2013, CC, MPAA rating: R, 93 min., Comedy, Box office gross: $2.906 million, Sony. 2 stars

  • Instructions Not Included

    photo for Instructions Not Included Valentin is Acapulco's resident playboy, until a former fling leaves a baby on his doorstep and takes off without a trace. Leaving Mexico for Los Angeles to find the baby's mother, Valentin ends up finding a new home for himself and his newfound daughter, Maggie. An unlikely father figure, Valentin raises Maggie for six years, while also establishing himself as one of Hollywood's top stuntmen to pay the bills, with Maggie acting as his on-set coach. As Valentin raises Maggie, she forces him to grow up too. But their unique and offbeat family is threatened when Maggie's birth mom shows up out of the blue. In Spanish with English subtitles. Extras: Commentary with Eugenio Derbez. Vitals: Director: Eugenio Derbez. Stars: Eugenio Derbez, Jessica Lindsey, Loreto Peralta, Daniel Raymont, Alessandra Rosaldo. 2013 -- Mexico, CC, MPAA rating: PG-12, 115 min., Comedy, Box office gross: $44.132 million, Lionsgate. 2 stars

  • Machete Kills

    photo for Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale Machete Cortez in this sequel. In his latest mission, Machete is recruited by the U.S. President to stop a crazed global terrorist (Mel Gibson) who has hatched a plan to spread war and anarchy across the planet. Extras: Deleted and extended scenes, "Making of Machete Kills." Vitals: Director: Robert Rodriguez. Stars: Danny Trejo, Mel Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Charlie Sheen/Carlos Estevez, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding Jr., Lady Gaga, Amber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Walt Goggins, William Sadler, Demian Bichir, Alexa Vega, Marko Zaror, Samuel Davis. 2013, CC, MPAA rating: R, 107 min., Action, Box office gross: $3.797 million, Universal. 2 stars

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963) Stanley Kramer followed his Oscar-winning "Judgment at Nuremberg" with this sobering investigation of American greed. Ah, who are we kidding? "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," about a group of strangers fighting tooth and nail over buried treasure, is the most grandly harebrained movie ever made, a pile up of slapstick and borscht-belt-y one-liners performed by a nonpareil cast, including Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Spencer Tracy, Jonathan Winters, and a boatload of other playing-to-the-rafters comedy legends. For sheer scale of silliness, Kramer's wildly uncharacteristic film is unlike any other, an exhilarating epic of tomfoolery. New, restored 4K digital film transfer of the general release version of the film, with 5.1 surround Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray. New high-definition digital transfer of a 197-minute extended version of the film, reconstructed and restored by Robert A.

La Vie de Boheme (1992) This deadpan tragicomedy about a group of impoverished, outcast artists living the bohemian life in Paris is among the most beguiling films by Finnish master Aki Kaurismaki ("Le Havre").

photo for The Postman Always Rings Twice BLU-RAY DEBUT The Postman Always Rings Twice BLU-RAY DEBUT (1981) Dir.: Bob Rafelson; Jack Nicholson, Jessica Lange, John Colicos, Michael Lerner, John P. Ryan, Anjelica Huston. Warner does justice to the steamy remake of the 1946 Tay Garnett crime drama (starring Lana Turner and John Garfield) with this lavish remastering of Rafelson's film (with his approval). Apparently, the 1997 DVD release was in the wrong aspect ratio in a pan-and-scan format and, according to Rafelson, contained "a host of other errors." Warner has made it good this time, adding commentary by Rafelson, Nicholson and screenwriter David Mamet. The film is justly notorious for its hot kitchen table sex scene between Lange and Nicholson. (Warner.
