Caprica
The prequel to Battlestar Galactica, set 50 years earlier on the planet that’ll eventually get blow’d up, starring Eric Stoltz and Esai Morales as the leaders who set it all in motion with religion and robotics. Ain’t that always the way?

Flying Saucer Rock & Roll

Frost/Nixon
City Weekly’s Bill Frost and Jennifer Nixon debate geopolitical reform and the merits/evils of vegan cuisine over several dozen drinks for two hours … no, that’s Nixon/Frost. Frost/Nixon is about two dudes in the ’70s. Never mind. (NBCUni.com)

Laid to Rest
A girl wakes up in a coffin with no memory of who she is, and then is stalked by a deranged serial killer wearing a chrome skull mask, conveniently named Chrome Skull; body counts and gore galore ensue. A fun date movie! (LaidToRestMovie.com)

The Wrestler
A washed-up ’80s pro wrestler (Mickey Rourke) has a shot at a comeback that may kill him, as well as a shot at a hot stripper (Marisa Tomei … damn!). He chooses the comeback over the stripper but, in fairness, she’d kill him, too. (FoxHome.com)
