'Source Code'
You're going to have a hard time finding a smarter, more provocative science-fiction film this year than "Source Code" from director Duncan Jones ("Moon"). The flick stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier who is repeatedly sent back in time into the body of a man on a train that is doomed to be bombed. He has to keep going back until he can find the bomb and the bomber. It's part action thriller, part psychological mindbender and a certified must-see. I just want to watch it again and again. (DVD, $26.99; Blu-ray, $30.49)

'Dylan Dog: Dead of Night'
Superman himself - Brandon Routh - stars in this adaptation of an Italian comic book series about a supernatural P.I. It's certainly not high art, but you'll have a fun time. (DVD, $22.98; Blu-ray, $29.99)

'Supernatural: The Anime Series'
If you can't get enough of the monster-fighting Winchester brothers, this anime series provides you with some new dark adventures. (DVD, $49.98; Blu-ray, $54.98)

'Conan the Adventurer: Season One'
With the new "Conan" film hitting theaters next month, the barbarian's previous adventures are all coming out, including this 1990s cartoon that's a whole lot better than you'd think. Sure, it's a bit childish, but you get some fun fantasy action here with an incredibly catchy chanting theme song. (DVD, $19.93)

'Jersey Shore: Season Three (Uncensored)'
Normally, I don't judge people for what they watch. But if you watch this, consider yourself judged. (DVD, $26.98)

This fascinating documentary gives you a solid, overarching view of the rough-and-tumble film genre. (DVD, $19.95)
