In the sorta-sequel to Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, two sci-fi nerds (Simon Pegg, Nick Frost) take a road trip with an alien escaped from Area 51 (Seth Rogen); bromance and stoner hijinx ensue. Stick with Hot Fuzz. (Universal) Netflix

A slightly nuts loser (Rainn Wilson) becomes DIY superhero the Crimson Bolt to fight crime, soon teaming with a completely nuts sidekick (Ellen Page). It’s like Kick-Ass, just with a higher body count and more man-rape. (IFC Films)

Your Highness
James Franco, Natalie Portman and Danny McBride star in the epic medieval tale of honor, love, chivalry and getting royally baked and slaying dragons. It’s like Led Zeppelin IV, just with fewer guitar solos and less man-rape. (Universal)

The Clinic
Two ridiculously good-looking actors who used to be gladiators (Andy Whitfield, Spartacus; Tabrett Bethell, Legend of the Seeker) play a couple whose newborn baby has been stolen. Oooh, you don’t wanna mess with these two. (Image)

Secret Diary of a Call Girl: Season 4
In the final season, Belle (Billie Piper) chooses between her glamorous and lucrative ’ho lifestyle and far-less-glamorous and lucrative True Love with Ben (Iddo Goldberg). If you didn’t catch it, I’m rooting for the former. (Paramount)
