Well if Zack Snyder didn't just win the Release Date Lottery?! His dark, twisted sexual fantasy "Sucker Punch" hits theaters this weekend, opening against... "Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2?" Don't count out the kid demo just yet though, especially with Snyder's debut foray into original material getting jabbed in the kidneys by critics all over the ring. Those are your two options for new releases at the box office though, so maybe you want to check out "Limitless," "Red Riding Hood," or "Battle LA"? No again? We understand. If you're looking for quality, look no further than your home entertainment center, as Todd Haynes' miniseries take on James M. Cain's "Mildred Pierce" starring Kate Winslet hits small screens this weekend as well. Of course there are always art house and foreign limited releases by filmmakers who deserve your support much more than the misguided Snyder (oh, how we weep for the potential we saw in "Dawn of the Dead").

Review: 'Peep World' Gathers A Promising Cast And Does Nothing With Them

Word on the IFC-distributed comedy "Peep World" has been enormously quiet, even for those who scour for the latest in upcoming indies. With a cast consisting of Michael C. Hall, Sarah Silverman, Rainn Wilson, Judy Greer, Kate Mara, Ronn Rifkin, and Lesley Ann Warren flying under the radar like this without any buzz, it can't be a good thing. Barry W. Blaustein's second foray into narrative filmmaking (his first was, and let us never forget it, "The Ringer") is devoid of what makes comedy films work, including the whole "making the audience laugh" part.

Scheduling during a film festival is tough and sometimes you can just can't get in everything you want to see and such is the case for "Peep World," a film that we couldn't squeeze into our already packed itinerary at last year's TIFF. Well, we didn't have to wait too long to get a chance to see it as it's set to his theaters soon.
