  • The Client List

The Client List: Season 1
A struggling single mom (Jennifer Love Hewitt) finds work in a massage parlor, only to find out happy endings are on the secret menu—soon, she’s the joint’s premier handjob whisperer. A series about female empowerment … sure, go with that. (Sony)

The Master
A WWII vet (Joaquin Phoenix) meets the leader of a religious movement (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who tries to cure him of his alcoholism and general insanity with what is certainly not Scientology so don’t sue me, OK? (The Weinstein Co.)

Freaky Deaky
Christian Slater, Billy Burke, Crispin Glover and a boatload of models star in Elmore Leonard’s tale of a disgraced cop (Burke) taking on a loony millionaire (Glover) and a bomb-making nutjob (Slater) in ’74 Los Angeles. Freaky deaky, indeed. (E1)

Girls Against Boys
After being wronged by dumb men, a woman (Danielle Panabaker) and a co-worker (Nicole LaLiberte) go on a dude-slaying spree set to a, yep, killer soundtrack. A movie about female empowerment … sure, go with that. (Anchor Bay)

Total Retribution (aka Earthkiller)
An army trapped aboard an orbiting space station battles to save Earth from malicious space zombies and gets naked more often than seems necessary for orbital combat. Not to be confused with Total Recall, Resident Evil or filmmaking. (Phase 4)
