This week's slate of new home video releases is led by the funny and delightfully violent superhero flick "Kick-Ass." If you don't already know the charms of Hit-Girl (pictured above), check it out. (full review)

Also out is one of the year's sharpest thrillers, the Roman Polanski-directed "The Ghost Writer." Whatever you may think of the director, it's one of the year's best. (full review)

My third pick is the Oscar-nominated French crime drama, "A Prophet (Un Prophete)." Think "Goodfellas." Good stuff. (full review)

Other highlights include the Steve Carell-Tina Fey comedy "Date Night" and, oh yeah, the final season of "Lost"!
