CATEGORIES Movie NewsDVD or Blu-ray? Redbox or Netflix? Streaming? Whatever your poison, we've got the highlights and lowlights on the week's new releases -- plus exclusive previews from "Footloose" and "Immortals."
Moviefone's Pick of the Week
"The Skin I Live In"
What's It About? After his wife is horribly burned in a car accident, a plastic surgeon (played by Antonio Banderas) dedicates his life to developing a miraculous new kind of skin -- that he tests on a helpless woman, held captive in his mansion.
See It Because: The movie's director Pedro Almodovar is the only selling point you need. His totally unique style and prolific career can be daunting. If you're not familiar with his previous work ("Volver," "All About My Mother" among others), there's really no other way to prepare for his approach than to just dive in with one of his movies.

New on DVD & Blu-ray
"Footloose" Despite protests from children of the '80s who grimaced at the thought of another classic being cynically remade by modern Hollywood, this new version is more faithful to the spirit of the original than people realize. See It or Skip It: See it.
Also available on Redbox DVD & Blu-ray | Amazon Instant Video
"Immortals" It's just another over-the-top "300" cash-in, but in the hands of director Tarsem ("The Fall") it turns into something sublimely ridiculous; it's certainly better than the new "Clash of the Titans." See It or Skip It: Turn your brain off and see it.
Also available on Amazon Instant Video
"Jack and Jill" Look we all know humor is a subjective thing and I don't enjoy sounding like a smug, condescending film snob... but if you're one of the people that spent your hard-earned dollars on this, thinking it "might be good," then your opinion is wrong and you should feel bad. See It or Skip It: Skip it. Also available on Redbox DVD & Blu-ray | Amazon Instant Video
"Like Crazy" This college-set version of "Blue Valentine" concerns two hopelessly-in-love young students who get separated by visa issues. If you're into heart-on-the-sleeve angsty romance then this should be right up your alley; if you're not, then you're just going to hate these people. See It or Skip It: Eh. Also available on Redbox DVD & Blu-ray | Amazon Instant Video
"Senna" This documentary on Formula One racing legend Ayrton Senna does a fascinating and thorough job chronicling his daredevil life and death. See It or Skip It: See it. Also available on Amazon Instant Video
"Columbus Circle" Actors you recognize slum it in a schlocky thriller about a reclusive heiress who never leaves her penthouse apartment and then witnesses... a murder(!) See It or Skip It: Skip it.
"My Future Boyfriend" A time traveler from the future arrives in the present day to understand this strange artifact called "love" from a romance novelist; sparks fly. Yep, it's an ABC Family original movie. See It or Skip It: Did you watch it on ABC Family? Also available on Redbox
"The Tooth Fairy 2" I'd rather watch "Jack and Jill" See It or Skip It: Skip it. Also available on Amazon Instant Video
"Wyatt Earp's Revenge" I don't know what's worse: that Val Kilmer is even in this or that he's not reprising his awesome role of Doc Holliday. See It or Skip It: Skip it. Also available on Redbox | Amazon Instant Video
