New DVDs in stores, January 21

By Spencer Blake. CREATED Jan 21, 2014

Two Oscar nominees, a favorite of Bob Richards', and more come to store shelves this week on DVD and blu-ray.

Captain Phillips - Sony - Rated PG-13
Tom Hanks is powerful and magnificent in the Oscar-nominated Captain Phillips. Hanks was robbed of a best actor nod, but his costar Barkhad Abdi scored a supporting nod. This true story is worth seeing. Bonus features include commentary and a very good making-of featurette.

Blue Jasmine - Sony - Rated PG-13
Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine has been nominated for multiple awards including acting for Cate Blanchett and Sally Hawkins. I enjoyed Andrew Dice Clay's return to movies, but overall, I wasn't a huge fan of this film. Extras include two featurettes.

In A World - Sony - Rated R
Lake Bell wrote, directs and stars in the very funny In A World which takes place in the world of voice over artists. Bonus features include commentary with Bell, deleted scenes and a gag reel. It's My Pick of the week!

Instructions Not Included - Lionsgate - Rated PG-13

Instructions Not Included is the most successful Spanish-language film ever released in the United States. It took in 44 million during its theatrical run. The disc's extras include commentary.

Machete Kills - Universal - Rated R
Not nearly as good as the first film, Machete Kills stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez and Mel Gibson. Extras include a making-of short and deleted and extended scenes.
