Jennifer Lawrence's 10 Best Movies
In the last five years, Jennifer Lawrence has gone from sitcom star to Oscar-winning thespian and integral component of two top-grossing film franchises -- not to mention the sort of celebrity whose goofy, down-to-earth persona makes her irresistible to meme makers and late-night talk show booking agents. She has a lot to celebrate, in other words, and with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 arriving in theaters this weekend, we decided now would be a perfect time to pay tribute to some of the brighter critical highlights from a filmography that?s only getting started. Watch your step, because it's time to Total Recall Jennifer Lawrence style!

RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: The Beaver, TrollHunter, and Win Win
This week on Home Video, we've got an interesting mix of smaller films -- some good, some not as good -- and thankfully, none of them are outright stinkers. That said, none of them was very widely released, so it's a good week to catch up on those films you may have wanted to see, but weren't able to. First off, there's the latest from Jodie Foster, starring a trouble Mel Gibson, and a well-received indie comedy-horror-mockumentary from Norway. Then, we have a Paul Giamatti dramedy, Morgan Spurlock's documentary on product placement, a heist comedy with Keanu Reeves, and Jason Statham's latest actioner. Lastly, we've got the cult favorite Swingers on Blu-ray and a couple of films from a highly acclaimed Korean director. Click through to read about this week's releases!

Critics Consensus: Thor is Certified Fresh
This week at the movies, we've got a mighty Norse god (Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman), a love triangle (Something Borrowed, starring Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin), and wedding bell blues (Jumping the Broom, starring Angela Bassett and Loretta Devine). What do the critics have to say? Blockbuster time! Now that summer's here, all we need is a good superhero movie to kick things off in grand style. And critics say we've got one with Thor, a robust, thrilling adventure with smarts and sly laughs. Chris Hemsworth stars as the God of Thunder, who's been exiled from Asgard after heedlessly starting a war.
