Feature films of note this week include Away We Go (with John Krasinski of The Office), Steven Soderbergh'sThe Girlfriend Experience (with Sasha Grey), and the animated Monsters vs. Aliens.

Madonna fans can not only pick up her directorial debut, Filth and Wisdom, but also her latest collection of music videos, Celebration: The Video Collection.

In a Dream is a fascinating documentary about Philadelphia artist Isaiah Zagar and his intricate mosaic murals.

Fans of superheroes can pick up the animated Superman/Batman: Public Enemies or Ultraman: The Complete Series, which collects all 39 episodes of the 60's Japanese live-action classic. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe: The Complete Series is also released tomorrow.
