Opening This Week

DAYBREAKERS—In this week's vampire movie, Ethan Hawke plays one of the last humans in a world that, much like your neighborhood cineplex, is dominated by the undead. Rated R.

THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR. PARNASSUS— Traveling through London with his theater troupe, Dr. Parnassus (Christopher Plummer) offers audience members the chance to escape reality through a "magic mirror" that actually serves as a portal into the doctor's phantasmagorical mind. This film's real protagonist is director Terry Gilliam, the mad cinematic wizard who has described his latest shambolic fantasy trip as "autobiographical." Still, an avoidable pall hangs over Imaginarium, because of the untimely demise of its star, Heath Ledger, who died during filming. His role is completed in surprisingly effective fashion by Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell. Gilliam's visual flourishes remain as dizzying and hypnotic as ever, but they obscure the same lack of narrative underpinning that has crippled many of his lesser concoctions. While this film is a polished clunker, Ledger manages to wring out one last dynamic performance. Rated PG-13. Read our review.NM

LEAP YEAR—Amy Adams is a woman searching for love in Ireland. Rated PG.

YOUTH IN REVOLT—Michael Cera has seemingly played the character of precocious, neurotic teenager Nick Twisp since his Arrested Development days. In this film by Miguel Arteta (Chuck & Buck; The Good Girl), his 16-year-old misfit longs to sever ties with his divorced parents (Jean Smart and Steve Buscemi). When Mom's latest loutish boyfriend (Zach Galifianakis) lands in hot water, they and Nick take refuge at Restless Axles, a Christian trailer park in northern California. Enter Sheeni Saunders (Portia Doubleday), an erudite Lolita with an abiding love for all things French. She and Nick wax whip-smart and commence a PG-rated summer fling, but his coitus interruptus proves to be Trent (Jonathan Bradford Wright), Sheeni's handsome, French-speaking, piano-playing, Futurist percussive poetry-spouting boyfriend. This is heady, hilarious fare that is already the surprise film of the young year—there are occasions late in Youth in Revolt when its comic elements almost explode into brilliant, full-blown surrealism, especially a couple of shroom-tripping sequences. Rated R. Read our review.NM

Current Releases

3 IDIOTS­—Rancho (Aamir Khan) is the prankish, brilliant college friend of two buddies (Sharman Joshi and Madhavan) who vanishes after graduation. One decade later, his friends embark on a search for him. Based on a best-selling autobiographical novel by Chetan Bhagat, 3 Idiots is essentially a bromance and thus heavy on potty humor. When the film soars, it's due to the substantial skills of writer-producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and writer-director Rajkumar Hirani, aided by Aamir's formidable superstar chops. Although derivative of previous hits (3 Idiots is essentially a mash-up of Aamir's Dil Chahta Hai and the Chopra/ Hirani Munnabhai M.B.B.S.) it's already a box office smash in India; the rare blockbuster celebrating the romance and excitement of ... engineering. Not rated. —LB

2012­—When the aircraft carrier U.S.S. John F. Kennedy, floating up the rising Potomac and obliterating the White House, you don't feel a thing beyond a certain regard for the skill of the animators who spent months making this appalling scene look "real." Rated PG-13. —DF

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: THE SQUEAKQUEL­—After an accident leaves Dave (Jason Lee), the guardian and manager to our favorite singing vermin anchored to a hospital bed, Alvin, Theodore and Simon are forced to return to high school. Inevitable battles with the jocks and teen queens lead to familial strife as a school popularity poll pulls the brothers apart. To make matters worse, new competition emerges in the form of the shrill-voiced singing sisters The Chipettes (voiced by Amy Poehler, Anna Faris and Christina Applegate). Picking up somewhere close to where the original left off, this sequel any adult appeal as it panders exclusively to the kindergarten set with fart jokes and a soundtrack of auto-tuned songs. Rated PG. —KJ

AVATAR—The hardest thing to stomach about Avatar is James Cameron's delusion that—with a few possible exceptions—there is nothing to laugh about in this schmaltzy, wanna-be epic about an ex-marine who falls in love with a giant blue cartoon. Self-serious and chock full of New Age hokum, Avatar is trippier in the scenes that take place on the military base, where 3-D effects give the film an eerie ground-shifting feel, than it is in its fantasyland of the planet Pandora, where giant blue humanoids prance around in faux-hippie jewelry and make feline hissing sounds when they're angry. Rated PG-13. —NG

BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL-NEW ORLEANS—Providing what was easily the most fun I had all year at the movies, Werner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans is a jagged thrill ride, a mock policier, unapologetic freakout and self-aware masterpiece of anticinema. Nicolas Cage is at his best since the similarly bonkers Face/ Off, doing a Jerry Lewis-like interpretation of Aguirre (Herzog's most famous protagonist), and he binds together what otherwise might have been a disjointed but still joyous, rigid middle finger to the cinema of quality that directors in the know have been trying to take down since the glory days of Cahiers du Cinema. Rated R. —NG

THE BLIND SIDE—Another sanctimonious tale masquerading as story of hope and inspiration. Sandra Bullock is the matriarch of a well-heeled Memphis family that becomes guardians to a homeless teenage man-child, Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), in hopes of improving his life, grades and, oh by the way, his chances at a college scholarship to play offensive left tackle at the University of Mississippi. Rated PG-13. —NM

DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MORGANS?—Yes, and you'll wish you hadn't. Paul (Hugh Grant) and Meryl (Sarah Jessica Parker) Morgan are two New Yorkers undergoing a trial separation. After a dinner in which they attempt to sort out their marital woes, they witness a murder and are forced into a witness protection program in a Wyoming town so small that it doesn't even have a Bargain Barn or an Applebee's. Rated PG-13. —BD

DISNEY'S A CHRISTMAS CAROL—Combining digital 3-D visuals with a 2.0 version of the animated, performance capture technology he employed five years ago in The Polar Express, director Robert Zemeckis conjures a phantasmagorical retelling of this venerable Victorian morality tale that also fully embraces Charles Dickens' dark themes. Rated PG. —NM

FANTASTIC MR FOX—In his latest film, Wes Anderson has found his ideal surrogate: the crafty, inventive, fussy perfectionist Mr. Fox (George Clooney), whose main goal in life, like Anderson's, is to construct and execute nifty schemes and become very well-liked in the process. Rated PG. —NG

INVICTUS—Terms often used to describe Clint Eastwood's directorial style—"traditional," "classical," "understated"—are code words that euphemize basic, uncreative and stale filmmaking. Frankly, Eastwood's success has more to do with his industry heft and ear for a good yarn. This chronicle about Nelson Mandela's early years as president of South Africa and his unlikely association with their national rugby team's march through the 1995 World Cup is no exception. Rated PG-13. —NM

IT'S COMPLICATED—In this latest effort from Nancy Meyers (Something's Gotta Give), Jane (Meryl Streep) and Jake (Alec Baldwin) pride themselves on their civilized divorce: When their son's college graduation prompts a temporary family reunion, the estranged parents, loosened by drink, fall into each other's arms. Certainly, one can sympathize with Jane's dilemma: Do you have the strength to discover another person when someone in whom you have invested a score of years, like an ex-husband, reappears? In any event, the laughs keep coming, and there is a great comic set piece as the trio rediscovers the joys of smoking weed. With Steve Martin. Rated PG-13. —LB.

NINE­—Even if the pedigree for this film is as muddled as a Federico Fellini storyline, one thing is crystal clear: this adaptation of the Tony award-winning musical inspired by Fellini's is a bombastic mess. Daniel Day-Lewis plays esteemed Italian filmmaker Guido Contini, who is suffering from a bout of writer's block on the eve of shooting his would-be comeback while at the same time being forced to confront his chaotic personal life by reconciling a bevy of formative women in his life. Director Rob Marshall's wasteful use of seven A-list actresses and performers is emblematic of 2009's woeful roster of female film roles. Rated PG-13. —NM

PRECIOUS: BASED ON THE NOVEL PUSH BY SAPPHIRE—Set in Harlem circa 1987, an illiterate, obese teenage mother, Chaireece "Precious" Jones (Gabourey Sidibe), endures poverty, repeated rape and impregnation by her absentee father and constant physical and emotional abuse from her welfare mom, Mary (Mo'Nique, a powerhouse performance of a cartoonishly vile character). Precious' struggle for survival is inspiring and shines a light onto the horrific lives many silently suffer. However, producer-director Lee Daniels indulges—even perpetuates—the very racial stereotypes and preconceptions this film should transcend. Rated R. —NM

THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG—Tiana (voiced by Anika Noni Rose) yearns to open a New Orleans restaurant, but her plans are derailed when she's turned into a frog after being persuaded to kiss Prince Naveen (Bruno Campos). The backdrops are gorgeous with meticulous details depicting Jazz Age N'awlins and the surrounding swamps. Notable song-and-dance set pieces include a waltz surrounded by lit-up lily pads and an Art Deco-inspired interlude. An endearing new heroine and a new twist on the classic princess tale make for a fun and heartfelt trip down South. Rated G. —SE

THE ROAD—The crux of Cormac McCarthy's ultra-bleak 2006 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel—and, in turn, director John Hillcoat's faithful screenplay—is not explaining a cataclysmic inferno that razes nearly all the world's plant and animal life. Instead, the story focuses on the survival of a Man (Viggo Mortensen, tremendous) and his Boy (Kodi Smit-McPhee), an odyssey that embodies the dual meaning of the film's title. Where Hillcoat falters is that by delving so deeply into the dark recesses of man's nature, he buries that sense of hope under a mountain of cynicism. Despair is the toll you must pay to travel The Road. Rated R —NM

SHERLOCK HOLMES—Guy Ritchie's kinetic update might not be "your father's Sherlock Holmes," but it's actually a lot closer to your great-great grandfather's. While Ritchie's frenzied filmmaking style is strictly mod, his Holmes—portrayed ably and energetically by Robert Downey Jr.—is informed by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's intellectually complex, personally flawed literary incarnation. Indeed, at this point it is difficult to decide whether Downey's own travails inform his performances or merely steer his choice of roles. You can almost smell the muck in Ritchie's rendering of 19th-century London, although his editing and pacing are choppy in the best of times. And, when Holmes begins deciphering ancient spells and maps to predict where the villain will strike next, the script takes an turn toward a Victorian-era version of The Da Vinci Code. Rated PG-13. —NM

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOONOne Tree Hill with fangs. Rated PG-13. —NM

UP IN THE AIR—With just three feature films now under his belt, Jason Reitman has ensconced himself as a talented, unique filmmaker and torchbearer for the seriocomic lineage. He follows Juno and Thank You For Smoking with another smart, ingratiating comedy. George Clooney stars as Ryan Bingham, a smooth-talking veteran "career transition counselor," a euphemism for being a hired gun paid to handle employee layoffs by corporate bosses too cowardly to do it themselves. Clooney's retro leading-man charisma is perfect for this material, while the talented Anna Kendrick, playing his intense sidekick, would feel right at home in a screwball comedy. Vera Farmiga, as Ryan's love interest and fellow traveler of the friendly skies, radiates the sophistication of classic noir divas. Rated R. —NM

THE YOUNG VICTORIA­— A period piece about the turbulent early years of Queen Victoria's reign must have seemed like a plum role for Emily Blunt, the brunette beauty who has flashed talent and cross-genre versatility in such films as My Summer of Love and The Devil Wears Prada. Unfortunately, Blunt's vitality dissipates in The Young Victoria, a derivative, somnolent biopic directed by Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée (C.R.A.Z.Y.). Rated PG. —NM
