Boardwalk Empire: Season 3
At the start of 1923, Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) is already making new enemies—including a nutjob gangster (Bobby Cannavale)—and collecting new showgirl mistresses. In all, it’s not bad to be Nucky. (HBO)

Hunted: Season 1
Melissa George stars as Sam Hunter, a left-for-dead spy out for revenge against her double-crossing agency—between brooding interludes, lush European scenery shots and the occasional Cinemax-obligatory sex scene, that is. (HBO)

Rapture-Palooza
When everyone else is raptured to heaven, Lindsey (Anna Kendrick) and her boyfriend (John Francis Daley) are left behind in Seattle—then Satan (Craig Robinson) moves into the ’hood and romances her. Plausible, sure, but … Seattle? (Lionsgate)

Skull Forest
A girls’ camping weekend takes a terrifying turn, oh, maybe due to the fact that they’re in a place called Skull Forest, not Pleasant Pines or No Beheaded Models Park. Filmed in an actual forest over a weekend for $200, apparently. (MVD)

Welcome to the Machine
Kim Wilde, Fatboy Slim, Cypress Hill, Bloodhound Gang and more explain the 12 Commandments of the Music Business, including the ugly truth about success, recording contracts, music awards and what the hell ever became of Kim Wilde. (MVD)
