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").

French auteur Francois Ozon’s “Potiche” begins with a scene that seems straight out of a Disney movie; that is, if Sleeping Beauty were wearing a ‘70s-era tracksuit and she happened upon bunnies shagging like, well, bunnies. Catherine Deneuve’s Suzanne Pujol steadfastly treks through the woods, keeping her figure trim for her businessman husband as she composes poetry for the feathered and furry friends who surround her. But as Suzanne walks through an idyllic oasis and returns to her mansion, it becomes clear that her life is no fairy tale.
