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 description for “Conan the Barbarian”:
“I live. I love. I slay. I am content.”
~ Conan the Barbarian
The most legendary barbarian ever is back this summer! Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination – in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small and in games and properties of all kinds – Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action/adventure film.
A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters and impossible odds as Conan realizes he’s the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.
Deftly adapted from the original works of Robert E. Howard and faithful to the mythology and psychology of his iconic character, “Conan the Barbarian” stars Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui and Ron Perlman. The film is directed by Marcus Nispel and written by Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer and Sean Hood.
