Jack Reacher
A former military investigator (Tom Cruise) attempts to exonerate a man accused of a mass shooting, only to be framed by nefarious forces and, even worse, paired with a co-star (Rosamund Pike) who can’t act to save her life. (Paramount)

30 Rock: Season 7
The final season of the show no one can believe lasted this long (including Tina Fey and NBC): Jack plots to take over and/or destroy Kabletown, Liz adjusts to domestic bliss and everyone preps for cancellation. Yeah, it’s meta. (Universal)

A woman (Tuva Novotny) wakes up in a French river with no memory, a loaded gun, a big stash of cash, a scar across her chest and a mysterious man stalking her. In Denmark, the original title was Just Another Sunday: The Tara Reid Story. (Gaiam)

A couple (Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) take in two nieces who went missing years ago after their parents were murdered—but did the girls bring the malevolent ghost of their mother with them? Happen to notice the title? (Universal)

The Oranges
After breaking up with her latest boyfriend, Nina (Leighton Meester) returns home to her parents on Thanksgiving and, naturally, starts an affair with mom and dad’s married best friend (Hugh Laurie). Dr. House has still got it! (ATO Pictures)

To be honest, I don't mind my action flicks having some flaws (or even some bad acting)--as long as they provide the action. So since I missed Jack Reacher in the theater, I'm getting excited to see it now that it's out on video. Although I'm just hoping for some good, mindless, fun I'm not quite confident enough to buy it without seeing it first, so I put it in my Blockbuster @Home queue and I expect it to be in my mailbox shortly. As an employee of DISH I like to try out all the different services we come out with, and I love this one. Before I signed up for Blockbuster @Home from DISH, I'd end up buying a lot of DVDs and Blu-rays that would get watched once and then set on a shelf to collect dust. Now I get to rent all the movies and video games I want while paying a flat-monthly charge. It's saved me a considerable amount of money over the past year.
