Kick-Ass After a tremendous amount of buzz and good reviews to boot, maybe it was the beatings a little girl took that turned audiences off at the box office. Never you mind that. This terrific movie about a group of do-it-yourself superheroes isn’t just a funny send-up of the genre, it’s a genuinely good movie about friendship, heart and doing the right thing—and yeah, there’s plenty of ass-kicking to go around too. There’s nothing not to like. Extras: Featurettes on the comic book origins, writer-director Matthew Vaughn’s commentary and art gallery (DVD/BD); that plus the making-of, “bonus view mode”multimedia presentation (BD)
DVD of the Week: ‘Kick-Ass.’ Plus: ‘Breakfast Club’ 25th Anniversary
