A real-life hacker, sci-fi laughs and dick jokes top our new-release picks for August 16, 2011

A good chunk of people are getting ready to head back to school in a week, so with just seven days of freedom remaining, this might be your last chance to get some luxury reading in. Or you can just read books during lectures, like we did. Whatever you choose, be sure to pick up something cool so the kids in the class will know you're in the know. Alternately, we've got plenty of comics, games and movies coming out this week, if reading's not your bit. We're especially looking forward to one particular PS3 game that lets you waggle the remote like a sword-penis.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
