A look at some of the DVDs, CDs and books hitting stores this week:

DVDs

“Jack Reacher” (PG-13): A former military investigator (Tom Cruise) searches for a deadly sniper in this action tale based on the series of novels by Lee Child.

Elsewhere, when two sisters are found in a remote cabin five years after disappearing, their uncle (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend (Jessica Chastain) suspect they’ve been accompanied by an evil presence in the horror tale “Mama” (PG-13). And a mysterious young woman (Julianne Hough) arrives in a small North Carolina town and reluctantly finds new love with a lonely widower (Josh Duhamel) in “Safe Haven” (PG-13), a romantic thriller from author Nicholas Sparks.

Topping today’s TV transfers: “Fringe: The Complete Fifth Season,” “30 Rock: Season Seven,” “Flashpoint: The Fifth Season,” “Royal Pains: Season Four,” “Private Practice: The Complete Sixth Season,” “Rookie Blue: The Complete Third Season” and volumes one and two of “Gunsmoke: The Eighth Season.”

CDs

Lady Antebellum, “Golden”: They’re the country music equivalent of mashed potatoes.

Lady Antebellum’s tunes are so mushy, they make Air Supply seem like Cannibal Corpse by comparison.
