Movie picks 

*Apocalypto (R)
Set in the Mayan kingdom of pre-Columbus America, the film tells the story of a man fleeing his fate as a human sacrifice. Director Mel Gibson has created an adventure that moviegoers will find gripping mostly because the characters on the screen matter more than the man behind the camera. Scott Renshaw

*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
