Barnyard (PG)

Picture Show

*Bobby (R)
When presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy was shot at the Ambassador Hotel on June 5, 1968, Emilio Estevez was 6 years old. Nearly 40 years later, he has directed Bobby, the story of Kennedy's death, and one of the year's best pictures. Estevez uses the stories of those in and around the Ambassador Hotel at the time of Kennedy's death to dramatize the story. Jeff Sneider

Tinseltown

*Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (R)
Sacha Baron Cohen takes reality comedy to new heights as the character he plays, Borat, interacts with real people. The movie's subtitle describes Borat's assignment to visit the United States to bring back information to help modernize his country. Scott Renshaw

Tinseltown

*Casino Royale (PG-13)
In lots of little ways the film stays true to the 40-year-old formula, but this adventure is more invigorating than any Bond film in years and Bond (Daniel Craig) is more than just a tuxedo holding a martini. The filmmakers deliver something that fits into the series' history, but isn't trapped by it. Scott Renshaw

Kimball's Twin Peak

The Fountain (PG-13)
The movie is a thoughtful, ultimately human tale about the centuries-spanning search for the Fountain of Youth and humanity's struggle with the infinite, but it occupies an awkward middle ground. The director has an epic vision for the movie, but is not able to achieve the sense of scale he seems to have intended. Scott Renshaw

*Turistas (R)
A bus full of tourists careens off a road in Brazil and rather than waiting for help, a few who decide to explore on their own meet with dire consequences. Despite shallow characterizations, this horror flick has it all: sex, action, gore and even a sense of humor. Jeff Sneider
