Japanese director Takashi Miike ("Audition") remakes this 1963 classic, and the new version is as epic as possible, including an unforgettably relentless 45-minute battle sequence.
Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer star in the story of a son whose father came out of the closet late in life.
Filled with steady laughs and stereotypes about marriage-obsessed women, this flick is smarter and funnier than "The Hangover."
This documentary about the real-life horse whisperer never proves why his story needed to be told, but the man's charm is more than enough to carry this film.
The sequel has colorful and eye-popping races with decent 3D, but lacks the heart of other Pixar films.
"Cave of Forgotten Dreams in 3D "
Werner Herzog's documentary on the world's oldest known cave paintings is a wholly unique experience that proves 3D can be instrumental to a film's success.
Hotshot test pilot Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) must protect the world with a devil-may-care attitude, his tousled hair, and lots of green. It's not good.
"The Hangover Part II"
By reusing exactly the same premise in a different locale, it's more of a remake than a sequel. Like most remakes, it's not as good as the original.
Leaving a job in this economy? That's not an option. So Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman turn to Plan B - murdering one another's bosses - in this darkly comedic romp.
Tom Hanks is affable as a ho-hum guy going back to community college, but everything else is too saccharine and one-dimensional to be enjoyable.
" Midnight in Paris "
Woody Allen's new comedy - his funniest flick in years - sends Owen Wilson's character back in time to 1920s Paris, where he meets Picasso, Hemingway and Fitzgerald.
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"
Even though it's a passable summer flick and Johnny Depp's Captain Jack is fun, the magic from the first film is gone.
"Super 8 "
J.J. Abrams' latest uses secrecy for a tense build-up, and it recreates that sense of awe you had as a kid while watching movies like "E.T."
"The Tree of Life"
Terrence Malick's latest opus is a sprawling, ambitious story that juxtaposes the events that shape a family in 1950s Texas with images of the birth of the world and dinosaurs. You'll either love it or hate it.
"Transformers: Dark of the Moon"
The battle between the Autobots and Decepticons is a spectacle best seen in full Technicolor eyeball-violating 3D.
"X-Men: First Class"
It's like regular "X-Men," only with leather seats, champagne and a curtain that divides them from the peons in the back.
