What to Watch prides itself on often offering a wide variety of material from TV seasons to On Demand exclusives to remasters of classic flicks. Not this week. All six of the New Releases that you may be drawn to in your favorite store or on your favorite service are movies, and all released in the last 18 months. But the variety within those movies is remarkable. A Best Picture winner, action flicks, a superhero, and two indie drams that waste talented casts. Pick your favorites. Here’s how we would rank ‘em.

Here is the plot synopsis for “Inception”:
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in “Inception”. It’s an original sci-fi actioner that travels around the globe and into the intimate and infinite world of dreams.
Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a skilled thief. He’s the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction. He steals valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.
Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back, but only if he can accomplish the impossible: inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists have to pull off the reverse. Their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime.
But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. It’s an enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming. This summer, your mind is the scene of the crime.
“Inception” stars three-time Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio (“Blood Diamond,” “Aviator”), Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“500 Days of Summer”), Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”), Academy Award nominee Ellen Page (“Juno”), Tom Hardy (“RocknRolla,” “Bronson”), Cillian Murphy (“Batman Begins”), Tom Berenger (“Training Day”), Dileep Rao (“Avatar”) and two-time Oscar winner Michael Caine (“Hannah and Her Sisters,” “The Cider House Rules”).
“Inception” is written and directed by Christopher Nolan. He also produced the film with Emma Thomas. Chris Brigham and Thomas Tull served as executive producers with Jordan Goldberg co-producing.
