'Argo'
The big talk about this terrific film is how star-director Ben Affleck was snubbed by the Oscars. But that discussion is pointless. Affleck's lack of a Best Director nomination hardly detracts from this wonderfully crafted thriller, based on a true story, about hostages trapped in Iran and the man (Affleck) who devises a clever plan to get them out. (DVD, $28.98; Blu-ray/DVD combo, $35.99)
