Flick Picks 11/26/13: Red 2, Jobs, final season of Breaking Bad

New at the library on DVD this week

ENTERTAINMENT: Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and Brian Cox are once again forced to leave the bingo parlor and reenter the espionage game in order to find a lost nuclear bomb and save humanity in Red 2. Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones are along for the ride and John Malkovich is his usual eccentric self in this made-to-please sequel to the 2010 hit. Expect plenty of action, a little romance and many jokes about growing old. Also this week, Ashton Kuchter dons the black turtleneck in Jobs, a look at what made Steve Jobs tick as he changed the world with the Apple computer.

SERIES: The explosive ending of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman's adventures as drug dealers arrives this week as we reach the final season of Breaking Bad. Also up is season 6 of Murdoch Mysteries.

SUBTITLED: An actress comes out of rehab and tries to reconnect with her family and her audience while also dealing with her personal demons in the Danish Applause.

DOCUMENTARIES: The rock doc Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, focuses on Alex Chilton's influential and formerly obscure rock band.
