With Christmas behind us, the studios don't really have much to offer other than a pair of international men of mystery, one from a very understated George Clooney film that too few of you saw, and the other from one of our very favoritist TV shows.
PICK OF THE WEEK: "The American"
George Clooney stars in this beautiful film directed by Anton Corbijn about an assassin who must carry out one last mission before he can leave the business. These things never go smoothly, do they? Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, read our review and watch the trailer
"Archer: Season 1"
The first season of this super-spy spoof was so hilariously profane and absurd, we can't wait for the next season to start in January. Now available on DVD, watch the promo
"And Soon the Darkness"
A remarkably good looking cast--Karl Urban, Odette Yustman and Amber Heard--star in this remake of the 1970 English thriller of the same name, about two young women on vacation. When one goes missing the other turns to a fellow American for help. We're guessing that was a mistake. Now available on Blu-ray and DVD, watch the trailer
"Battlestar Galactica: Razor"
This two-hour TV movie about the encounter between Battlestars Galactica and Pegasus, which deals with the controversial ascension to XO of Kendra Shaw, was made to tide over fans who were losing their cool during the 12-month hiatus between seasons 3 and 4. Now available on Blu-ray, watch the trailer
Remember this thriller about marital infidelity gone terribly wrong starring Jennifer Aniston and Clive Owen? Yeah, nobody else does either. But hey, it's got a cameo from RZA. Now available on Blu-ray, watch the trailer

A wiry geek hoping to make his high school team reaches out to his estranged brother, Mike (John Cena), a former star wrestler, but the two must keep it a secret because their mom (Patricia Clarkson) still holds Mike responsible for his father's death after 10 years. Danny Glover co-stars. Now available on DVD, watch the trailer
