Who can perform a zero-gravity striptease, seduce an angel and still have time to save the universe? Jane Fonda stars in the 1968 far-out future fantasy Barbarella, blasting off on Blu-ray for the first time ever. The titular sexy space heroine lands on the planet Lythion in the year 40,000. Faced with robots, monsters and evil of varying stripes, she must vanquish her enemies, all while attempting -- and failing -- to keep her skin-tight spacesuit on. Along the way she receives assistance from a variety of handsome men, each of whom receives her uninhibited appreciation.

God Bless America

Loveless, jobless, possibly terminally ill, Frank has had enough of the downward spiral of America, which he sees as overrun with cruelty, stupidity and intolerance. With nothing left to lose, Frank buys a gun and decides to take out his frustration on the cruelest, stupidest, most intolerant people he can imagine -- starting with some particularly odious reality television stars. He finds an unusual accomplice in 16-year-old Roxy, a high school student who shares his sense of rage and disenfranchisement. Together, they embark on a nationwide assault on the worst of America.

2 Days in New York

Julie Delpy and Chris Rock star in a hilarious comedy of manners about a relationship pushed to its limit. Marion and Mingus live cozily with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. However, when Marion's jolly father, her oversexed sister, and her sister's outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for a visit, it initiates two unforgettable days that will test Marion and Mingus. With their unwitting racism and sexual frankness, the French triumvirate hilariously has no boundaries or filters... and no person is left unscathed in its wake.
