CATEGORIES Movie NewsMoviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Detention" What's It About? Josh Hutcherson leads a teen cast (plus Dane Cook?!) in an over-the-top horror slasher that involves everything from time travel to body-swapping. See It Because: You're either going to love "Detention" or you're going to hate it. If you hate it, it's because you think the movie is an assault on the senses, rife with obnoxious jokes and references, and ridiculous concepts. If you love it, it's because you think "Detention" is a frantic roller coaster of a movie that accurately captures the pop smorgasbord we call teen culture. "Detention" is audacious enough to throw everything from '80s John Hughes to "Scream"-style horror in a blender and go for broke; it's up to you to decide if that's a good thing or not.

Moviefone's Blu-ray Pick of the Week "Total Recall" (1990) - Mind-Bending Edition What's It About? Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in this sci-fi-action classic as an ordinary Earth-bound man, living in the not-too-distant future, who realizes he once lived as a deadly secret agent. Now he must try to figure out which memories are real, and which ones are fake, while being chased all the way to Mars. See It Because: Director Paul Verhoeven is one of the most unique action directors of all time, and now you get to see his wacked-out depiction of life on Mars in glorious high definition. Also, if you're planning on checking out the Colin Farrell-led "reimagining" of the film over the weekend, this revamped edition of the 1990 version is a perfect precursor, as it comes loaded with special retrospective and behind-the-scenes features, explaining why "Recall" has remained so popular.
New on DVD and Blu-ray "184.108.40.206" What's It About? This sexy British crime thriller starring a group of young girls (including American Emma Roberts) who get caught up in a diamond heist isn't as clever as it thinks it is, and is really just an excuse to get the cast in its underwear as much as possible. See It or Skip It: Skip it.
"ATM" What's It About? Young sexy co-workers get trapped in an ATM vestibule and terrorized by a mysterious, hooded killer who will either let the freezing cold weather do them in, or finish the job himself.

"LOL" What's It About? This Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore-led romantic drama set in high school uses Facebook status updates to tell its tone-deaf story.

"We the Party" What's It About? It nobly attempts to be an "authentic" look at urban youths attending a diverse Los Angeles high-school, but it ends up feeling like a hip hop-inspired "after school special."
