Blu-Ray/DVD Releases: February 5, 2013

If last week was too dark for your tastes than things should be looking up, as the gritty standard previously set is replaced by a more neutral tone as a whole. Without a doubt, Flight, which marks the return of live-action directing by Robert Zemeckis and stars Denzel Washington, is the cream of the crop. But, one man's trash is another's treasure, as Alex Cross and Here Comes the Boom are also making their home video debut. While both of those titles probably aren't going to be on anyone's favorite lists, they might be an average way to kill an hour or so, and sometimes that is more than okay.

Hit the jump for a rundown of the above titles and more!
