A Prophet; Kick-Ass; The Breakfast Club: 25th Anniversary

A Prophet
(Sony Classics, $28)
Director Jacques Audiard’s French crime saga belongs up there with The Godfather and Goodfellas, said the Lincoln, Neb., Journal Star. After being sent to prison, an illiterate young Muslim (Tahar Rahim) falls under the sway of a Corsican gang, and only then adopts a criminal mind-set. Extras include commentary by Audiard.

Kick-Ass
(Lionsgate, $30)
Kick-Ass could be the year’s “most polarizing” film, said the Sarasota, Fla., Herald-Tribune. At once disturbing and entertaining, it both mocks and exults in superhero-movie tropes, placing a dirty-mouthed, ultraviolent little girl in the center of the action. “Love it or loathe it, this movie smashes Hollywood conventions.”

The Breakfast Club: 25th Anniversary
(Universal, $27)
John Hughes’ coming-of-age classic is all grown up, said New York. The 25th-anniversary edition of The Breakfast Club lets you “fully appreciate the dance stylings of Emilio Estevez, the vocal talent of Judd Nelson, the hairspray of Molly Ringwald, and the blond cuteness of Anthony Michael Hall.”
