An American Haunting (PG-13)
An American Haunting takes a beloved American ghost tale and turns it into Little Exorcist in the Big Woods, pounding us with the director's big-scare ambitions at every turn. Kathryn Eastburn

Benchwarmers (PG-13)

*Brick (R)
Brick explores the notion that high school is entirely about trying on roles and character types. Writer/director Rian Johnson's neatest trick is that he's taken a cautionary tale about teens who think coolness trumps all, and disguised it as a frisky, violent piece of eye- and ear-candy. He serves up the veggies on Brick's plate of medium-rare steak so unobtrusively, you hardly know they're there. Scott Renshaw

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (PG)
If the creators of Ice Age 2 devoted even half as much energy and invention to the main story as they did to the acorn-obsessed rodent Scrat, we'd be talking about a classic for the ages instead of a lot of dead air between moments of brilliance. Scott Renshaw

*United 93 (R)
I can't tell you if writer/director Paul Greengrass got it right as a history lesson. And I can't conceive of how it might be perceived by those whose loved ones are portrayed struggling and dying in an unimaginable situation. All I can say is that United 93 delivers an experience so intense and immediate that I literally felt myself sweating as events unfolded, a knot of anxiety churning in my stomach. Scott Renshaw

*V For Vendetta (R)

Picture Show

*X-Men: The Last Stand (PG-13)
Sure, director Brett Ratner is no Bryan Singer, the man who made the first two X-Men movies into intelligent, emotionally resonant films that even non-comics fans could love. Yes, Ratner's music-video attention span and inability to linger on a shot for more than a few seconds blunts the impact of some of X-Men: The Last Stand's big emotional moments. Nonetheless, he liked Singer's films as much as you did, and he hasn't tried to fix what ain't broke. Gary Susman
