Picture Show

The Conspirator (PG-13)

It's more like Robert Redford's on auto-pilot. The one thing a movie with a bleeding heart should not be is bloodless, and this one almost is. — Jonathan Kiefer

Carmike 10, Chapel Hills 15, Cinemark 16, Hollywood Interquest, Tinseltown

Hanna (PG-13)

Chapel Hills 15, Tinseltown

*Jane Eyre (PG-13)

Charlotte Brontë's 1847 novel has been adapted into films at least once every decade since 1914. By being greater than the sum of its parts, this Jane Eyre should stay fresh until the next one. — Jonathan Kiefer

Hollywood Interquest

Paul (R)

Like it was some sort of nerdnip, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost give us familiar one-liners to roll around in until we're too giddy to think straight. Past that, Paul doesn't offer much. — Scott Renshaw

Picture Show

Prom (PG)

Several intersecting stories unfold at one high school as the big dance approaches. — Not reviewed

Carmike 10, Chapel Hills 15, Cinemark 16, Hollywood Interquest, Tinseltown

Chapel Hills 15, Cinemark 16, Hollywood Interquest

Source Code (PG-13)

Where the whole endeavor could have been kinda sorta OK but not really all that great, it ends up being hugely distasteful, and idiotic for not even realizing it. — MaryAnn Johanson

Cinemark 16, Hollywood Interquest, Tinseltown

Kimball's Peak Three

Your Highness (R)

There is no point to this unforgivable excuse for a comedy, except, obviously, for Danny McBride to make his buddies chortle over pot jokes. Oh, and at least pretend to get himself laid. — MaryAnn Johanson
