Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman
Romantic epic set in the outback following the fortunes of an Englishwoman (Kidman) and her cattle station. Jackman flexes his abs as the quintiessential outbacker. Some fantastic shots, but maybe a bit overdone on the Aussie cliches. Certainly overdone on the length at a whopping 165 minutes. Make sure you're not sitting in the front couple of rows or you won't be able to uncrick your neck for a few days.
Christine Collins leaves for work one day and returns to find her son, Walter, gone. Months later, authorities return to her a child that is not hers. She confronts the LAPD and is slandered, smeared and eventually treated as a lunatic.
Voice of John Travolta
This animated feature stars a dog, Bolt, who having lived in a TV show bubble all his life, thinks that he is a super hero. The delusional pup gets separated from the studio and must find his way from New York back to Hollywood sans superpowers but with the help of a hamster, and a cynical cat.
In this family comedy, Skeeter Bronson (Adam Sandler), who has also been shafted at work, is roped into babysitting his niece and nephew. The chemistry isn’t great until he engages the children in bedtime stories that are translated into imaginative special-effects sequences.
Samuel L. Jackson, Gabriel Macht
In this graphic novel turned movie, The Spirit returns from the dead to the rough streets to hunt down bad guys. According to most reviews, this is a story that has been done before and better. Also done better: adaptations of comics.

Jason Statham, Robert Knepper
Statham looks, talks, and acts mean and moody, he drives fast, fights hard and takes his shirt off. It's far from being movie gold, but it is fun.
You will not have to use brain. In fact, its probably better if you don't, but, as long as you don't take it seriously, you should thoroughly enjoy this throwaway piece of nonsense.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson
Teen vampire novel turned flick, this may be fine for the target audience who can relate to alternate swooning and hatred towards the object of one's desire. However the set-up quickly turns risible and Stewart seems quietly lacking in the intricities of extreme teen melodramatic emotions. While the special effects are well-below par, furhter adding to the unintentional comedy.
