THE LIST: Latest DVDs, CDs, books, Feb. 5

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

DVDs

“Flight” (R): Hard-partying pilot Capt. Whip Whitaker (Oscar nominee Denzel Washington) is hailed as a hero for his improbable emergency landing, until suspicion arises concerning his drug and alcohol use, in this drama from director Robert Zemeckis.

Elsewhere: Tyler Perry steps into the shoes of the titular homicide detective in “Alex Cross” (PG-13), although fans of James Patterson’s series of novels may have trouble recognizing the character. When cutbacks threaten the job of his school’s music teacher (Henry Winkler), a biology teacher (Kevin James) raises money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter in the comedy “Here Comes the Boom” (PG). A divorcing couple (Rashida Jones, Andy Samberg) try to maintain their friendship in the comedy “Celeste and Jesse Forever” (R). And Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener star in “A Late Quartet” (R), a drama about a world-renowned string quartet and its 25th anniversary concert, which may be its last.

Topping today’s TV transfers: “Cougar Town: The Complete Third Season,” “Southland: The Complete Second, Third and Fourth Seasons” and “Gunsmoke: The Seventh Season, Volume Two.”
