Sex and violence – well, mostly sex – fill this week’s home entertainment slate.
A freed slave on a mission to rescue his wife metes out bloody vengeance against racists and rednecks in Tarantino’s Django Unchained (above).
A man’s devotion to his girlfriend is challenged when he hooks up with another guy in Spanish import Angels of Sex, while two Czech couples find that swinging can be complicated in 4Some.
And True Blood hottie Ryan Kwanten plays a young Aussie dude who sets out to get a gal preggers ASAP in Not Suitable For Children.

In Quentin Tarantino’s latest, Jamie Foxx plays a freed slave, Django, who teams up with Christoph Waltz’s Dr. King Shultz, a dentist turned bounty hunter. While earning plenty of rewards for capturing – and often killing – wanted men, they also join forces to rescue Django’s wife from the clutches of a despicable plantation owner, Leo DiCaprio’s villainous Calvin Candie. Gory, twisted, disturbing, and riddled with the “n”-word, Django is a satisfying follow-up to Inglorious Bastards. Extras include featurettes on the production design, horse stunts, and costumes.

A handsome hip hop dancer, Bruno, gets all hot and bothered for another hot dancer, Rai, who comes to his rescue after a mugging. Trouble is that Bruno has a girlfriend, Carla, and she’s none to pleased to find the two guys getting it on… at least until she begins to feel the same way for Rai. Explicit same-sex scenes add heat to this Spanish love triangle drama. Extras include a behind the scenes featurette and character monologues.

In this Aussie rom-com, True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten plays Jonah, a man diagnosed with testicular cancer. Told that its treatment will result in infertility, and being one of those men whose sperm can’t be frozen, Jonah rushes to find a woman to knock-up – including an ex and a lesbian co-worker – before it’s too late to have a child. Extras include cast and crew interviews and a behind the scenes featurette.

In this Czech sex comedy, a pair of suburban, middle-aged couples on a Caribbean trip decide to get swingy. However, what happens in the Caribbean doesn’t necessarily stay in the Caribbean – and their teen kids have their own frisky feelings to deal with to boot!
