C2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, July 29, 2010 Entertainment IEVIEWS PICKS OF THE WEEK "Kick-Ass" (R) -- "Kick- Ass" is one of my favorite films of 2010 (after "Toy Story 3" and "Iron Man 2"). Based on the cult comic-book series, "Kick- Ass" is the story of a high- school nebbish named Dave (Aaron Johnson) who secretly decides to become a superhero named Kick- Ass. When someone with a phonecam videos Kick-Ass beating down a bunch of goons, Kick-Ass becomes a YouTube sensation and Dave finds himself taking on more and more danger- ous assignments. - Eventually, Kick-Ass comes to the attention of a local mobster (Mark Strong) and the teen finds himself over his head. Luckily, there are other masked vigilantes in town ready to come to his aid: Big Daddy (played to the hilt by Nicholas Cage doing his best Adam West impression) and 10-year- old Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz), a ruthless, vulgarity-spew- ing assassin. With its high-octane, ultra-violent set pieces, "Kick-Ass" definitely earns its R rating, and director Matthew Vaughn keeps the pace of the film rockin' like Dokken. If you're a fan of films like "Kill Bill" or "Robo Geisha," then you definitely need to check -out "Kick-Ass." "The Breakfast Club" (25th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-Ray] (R) -- This film about a group of high- school stereotypes bonding during a Saturday detention session made John Hughes the king of '80s teen-angst films, created the term "Brat Pack" and skyrock- Aaron Johnson as Kick-Ass eted Judd Nelson's flaring nostrils into superstardom. Special features include a 12-part documentary by the cast and other film- makers reminiscing about the making of the film and its impact on American culture, a commentary track with Judd Nelson and Anthony Michael Hall, and a documentary on The Brat Pack.
