Moviefone’s New Release Pick of the Week
What’s It About? Ridley Scott returns to the world of “Alien” with an epic prequel about mankind’s first contact with a mysterious alien race who may or may not be our makers, and may or may not have sinister purposes.

Not since “Inception” has a summer blockbuster come along with such audacious head-scratching concepts. And despite being filled with plot holes, it was still fun to argue about the film’s big questions. Also, the always brilliant Michael Fassbender was terrific as David, an android servant with T.E. Lawrence-sized dreams of exploration.

New on DVD and Blu-ray
“The Barrens”
What’s It About? Darren Lynn Bousman of the “Saw” franchise directs his newest horror movie about a family that is terrorized in the New Jersey Pine Barrens by the Jersey Devil of folklore. The end result is predictable horror schlock.
See It or Skip It: Skip it.

“A Cat in Paris”
What’s It About? The surprise Academy Award nominee for Best Animated Feature, concerning a secretive cat who leads a double-life with a charming jewel thief and a little girl who recently lost her father is charming, jazzy and noirish. Sample some international animation that isn’t of the Dreamworks variety.

“The Cottage”
What’s It About? There was already a movie called “The Cottage” back in 2008, but that one didn’t have David Arquette.

“The Courier”
What’s It About? Jefferey Dean Morgan and Mickey Rourke star as blah blah blah in a generically-titled action movie.

“The Raven”
What’s It About? Edgar Allen Poe is on the hunt for a serial killer that silences his victims in the fashion of the author’s macabre stories. Even with John Cusack, this is a straight-up “RDJ as Sherlock Holmes” copycat.
See It or Skip It: Skip it.
