DVD Roundup

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

An operative (Chris Pine) in the CIA's Financial Intelligence Unit (sure, it's a thing) uncovers a Russian plot to collapse the U.S. economy and flips into action-spy mode to save the day. Shouldn't this be called Shadow Accountant? (Paramount)


A U.S. Air Marshal (Liam Neeson) receives a mysterious text demanding $150 million or a passenger will be killed every 20 minutes, so he flips into action-marshal mode to save the day. Shouldn't this be called Dead Air? (Universal)

Ray Donovan: Season 1

"Fixer" to the Hollywood rich and famous Ray Donovan (Liev Schreiber) knows how to handle any problem—except his own father (Jon Voight), a career criminal just released from prison. Can this wacky family get it together? Ha! (Showtime)

The Secret Lives of Dorks

When a high-school nerd falls in stalker-lust with a head cheerleader, she sets him up with an equally-awkward nerd girl and coaches him on "romance" ("Always tell a hot girl she's smart; always tell a smart girl she's hot"). Uh, brilliant! (Gaiam)

True Detective: Season 1

Two ex-Louisiana detectives (Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson) are interrogated about a serial-killer case they "solved" in the '90s; flashbacks and intense hair/acting ensue. Yes, it is as amazing as the hype says. (HBO)
