Even with the cult-led power of Fight Club, it took a long time for another Chuck Palahniuk adaptation to make it to the big screen. Finally, we were served Clark Gregg's Choke, a film that certainly relished its source material, but didn't inspire the rabid love of its predecessor. Still, it's a fun look into the life of a sex addict who fake-chokes in restaurants for money. Rent it.

True stories made for successful cinema in this Clint Eastwood-helmed film about a woman (Angelina Jolie) in 1920s LA who's trying to find her abducted son. She gets a son, alright, but it's not her own, which triggers her own search for the ugly truth. As Kim Voynar said, Jolie "excels in a powerful performance." Buy it on DVD or Blu-ray.

How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
Simon Pegg has made an amazing comedic name for himself over the last handful of years, fighting zombies and enforcing the law in a small and crazy town. But in comedies not created and whipped up by Pegg himself, they fall flat. Even if he is alienating the likes of Kirsten Dunst, Danny Huston, Jeff Bridges, Gillian Anderson, and Megan Fox ... we say Skip it.
