Seven Psychopaths
A Hollywood screenwriter (Colin Farrell) becomes the target of a crazy underworld crime boss (Woody Harrelson) after his friends (Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken) dognap a shih tzu. Shockingly Bruce Willis-free. (CBS Films)

Femme Fatales: Season 1
Cinemax’s late-night “mystery” anthology series, which is really just soft-core porn with a smidgen of plot and a whole lotta sex and guns—up until recently, it was the best original show on the network. OK, only original show. (E1)

The Cold Light of Day
In Bruce Willis’ 78th movie of 2012, a tourist in Spain (Henry Cavill) becomes embroiled in an international spy plot involving a mysterious briefcase and Sigourney Weaver. Seriously, how many flicks does Bruce make a year? (Summit)

All Superheroes Must Die
An evil archnemesis (is there any other kind?) strips four superheroes of their powers and subjects them to a series of torturous games to Save the World. It’s that mashup of The Avengers and Saw pretty much no one asked for. (Image)

Hello, I Must Be Going
A depressed divorcee (Melanie Lynskey, Two & a Half Men) gives up on life and moves back in with her parents, then makes a miraculous recovery after sleeping with a 19-year-old neighbor (Christopher Abbott, Girls). Works every time. (Oscilloscope)

Thanks for posting these on these new releases, Bill. I’m looking for a few good films to rent. My position at DISH had me traveling a lot last year, so I am more than a little behind on my movie and TV watching. But, I’ve been getting all caught up now that I have the DISH Blockbuster @Home service; they offer over 100,000 Blu-ray or DVD TV shows, Movies and video games by mail, so I can easily rent anything that I’ve missed out on. My wife and I have been looking forward to Seven Psychopaths, so that is already in our queue, but I haven’t heard much about All Superheroes Must Die; I think we might give that a shot too.
