Well kids...here are some notable releases on disc from Netflix. Probably something for everyone in the list? I hear The Lone Ranger was not so hot. Any comments?

Kick-Ass 2 In this sequel, high school superhero Kick-Ass has to find a new crime-fighting partner after Hit Girl is suddenly taken out of action. He joins another superhero team and is soon locked in battle with a super-villain bent on vengeance.


The Family The Manzonis, an infamous mob family, are relocated to Normandy, France, by the witness protection program, where they have some difficulty fitting in. When local problems arise, they respond the only way they know how: mafia style.


The Lone Ranger In this reboot of the 1950s television series, Native American warrior Tonto rescues wounded lawman John Reid and restores him to health, thus creating an often-contentious but effective partnership as they attempt to rid the Old West of corruption.


Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters The epic adventures of Percy Jackson continue as the son of Poseidon and his friends venture into the perilous Sea of Monsters to find the Golden Fleece that has the power to save Camp Half-Blood, safe haven and training ground to the demigods.


A.C.O.D. After enduring decades of conflict between his divorced parents, Carter tries to end the hostilities on the eve of his brother's marriage. Instead, he ends up making surprising discoveries about his past that only increase the tumult.


Big Sur In the wake of his literary success, Beat writer Jack Kerouac retreats to a small cabin in California's Big Sur to try and sort out his life. When isolation leads him to take a break in San Francisco, he's soon involved with his buddy's mistress.


Blue Caprice In their lead-up to the infamous 2002 Beltway sniper attacks, John Muhammad and Lee Malvo embark on a coast-to-coast trip, forming a deadly bond along the way that distorts the definition of a father-son relationship.


Cafe de Flore Two dramatic narratives weave together in a meditation on human love. Set decades apart in Paris and in Montreal, the two stories share subtle yet profound links through their characters -- a mother and son, and a divorced couple.


Fruitvale Station This dramatic rendering of a real-life tragedy recounts the final hours of Oscar Grant, shot by San Francisco transit police on New Year's Day, 2009. In portraying the energy Oscar brought to life, the film mourns the tragic loss of a unique soul.


I'm in Love with a Church Girl When a tough-minded ex-drug dealer falls for a beautiful but highly devout Christian woman, their mutual attraction takes them both down a twisty path that tests their love -- and their faith.
