"Hey Arnold! The Movie" -- As you would suspect, any title with an exclamation point is aimed at the younger set. The Nickelodeon character with the football-shaped noggin stars in his first feature-length adventure about efforts to stop a developer from knocking down stores and houses to build a mammoth "mall-plex." With voices of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Christopher Lloyd and Paul Sorvino.

"XXX" -- XXX marks the spot for a new franchise, built around Vin Diesel as an extreme-sports obsessive pressed into service by the National Security Agency. Given the choice of prison or Prague, he takes the overseas assignment that pits him against a group called Anarchy 99.

"Thomas in Love" -- The age of virtual romance, in the not-too-distant future, provides the backdrop for this story of a 30-something bachelor who has not left his apartment in more than eight years. He becomes involved with a medically endorsed government-issue prostitute.

"Wisegirls" -- Mira Sorvino, Mariah Carey and Melora Walters play waitresses at a mobbed-up restaurant on Staten Island.

"Eye See You" -- Originally titled "D-Tox" and released overseas, this action thriller stars Sylvester Stallone as an FBI agent on the warpath. Cast also includes Tom Berenger, Charles Dutton and Kris Kristofferson.

"Double Whammy" -- Tom DiCillo wrote and directed this direct-to-video release about a world-weary detective whose back goes out. He fails to stop a fatal shooting spree and finds his reputation and self-esteem gone, until a sexy chiropractor comes to the rescue. Denis Leary and Elizabeth Hurley star.

Also: "The Art of Action: Martial Arts in the Movies," a compilation hosted by Samuel L. Jackson, and "Stingray: The Complete Set," a five-DVD set with 39 digitally remastered episodes, commentary and production stills.
