No Strings Attached takes on the age-old question of whether best pals can survive becoming friends with benefits. In this romantic comedy, Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher and Cary Elwes learn sex may not be enough to satisfy one's romantic urges.
Blue Valentine, starring Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams and Mike Vogel, takes a step forward in life. The more serious romantic drama takes on contemporary marriage, tracing a couple through different periods of their union.
For a sexy, madcap ride with great music, check out Jonathan Demme's 1986 comedy Something Wild, starring Melanie Griffith, Jeff Daniels and Ray Liotta. Just released on DVD/Blu-ray, the hip tale follows the adventures of wild child Lulu and the yuppie she kidnaps to play her faux hubby on her road trip back home. Trouble ensues when her dangerous ex shows up.
In other retro notes, Top Gun also got a Blu-ray rerelease this week!
For a thriller, Cuba Gooding Jr., Cole Hauser and Jonathan LaPaglia star in The Hit List, a gritty tale about a man who writes up a drunken hit list with a stranger and then must save the people he's turned into victims.
For international hits, check out the French animated dramedy The Illusionist, the British horror flick Black Death, the Russian drama How I Ended This Summer or the Korean crime drama I Saw the Devil.
Other DVD/Blu-ray new releases include the animated family tale Chop Kick Panda, the racy comedy Cougars Inc (with cougars Sarah Hyland, Denise Richards and Kathryn Morris), the psychedelic yet spiritual drug drama Getting High, the "sexual yet cerebral" drama Now & Later and the comic horror flick Dahmer Vs. Gacy.
