Finding Bliss
An indie filmmaker (Leelee Sobieski) takes a job at a porn studio to secretly produce her own movie after hours, only to fall in love with an adult-film director. Also featuring real porn stars Stormy Daniels and Denise Richards. (Phase 4 Films)

Heroes: Season 4
The fourth and final chapter of the superhero series that pretty much lost it around Season 2—though NBC and creator Tim Kring would like to travel back in time and convince you it never did. Hey, that’s them over there—nooo! (Universal)

Kick-Ass
A teenage geek (Aaron Johnson) dons a superhero costume and begins fighting crime—after getting his own ass kicked a time or two. He soon meets Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage); dark not-so-comedy ensues. (Lionsgate)

Max Headroom: The Complete Series
Finally, after 20 years—the first “cyberpunk” TV series on DVD! In a futuristic society, a journalist (Matt Frewer) has a copy of his brain downloaded into a computer, creating daffy digital alter-ego Max Headroom. Still cool. (Shout Factory)
