Posted By on Thu, Apr 26, 2012 at 1:45 PM

FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT
Jason Segel just can't get out of Midwest. The How I Met Your Mother Minnesotan character moves to Michigan with his fianceé (Emily Blunt) for a two-year engagement that stretches longer than he expected. Co-written by Segel and director Nicholas Stoller, the plot entertains with Segel's hilarious comedic timing.(AS) Rated R

GOON
In a role he was born for, Sean William Scott plays a local tough guy who gets into a fight in the stands of a semi-pro hockey game and gets invited to join the team as an enforcer. The guy, basically, who gets paid to beat opposing players up. He’s not a misanthrope or a jerk. He’s nice to his girlfriend and is just glad to be on the team. At Magic Lantern (LB) Rated R

NICKY’S FAMILY
On the eve of WWII, Nicholas Winton, orchestrated the release of 669 blacklisted children out of Nazi-controlled Czechoslovakia. This documentary recounts that story, as well as tracing the effect it has had on subsequent generations. At Magic Lantern (LB) Unrated

THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS
The hapless captain of a pirate ship that is horrifically bad at attacking treasure ships (instead running down science vessels, ghost ships, a leper boat, a bunch of nudists). He still has dreams of winning the coveted Pirate of the Year award, though, a feat he will undertake with the help of Charles Darwin. (SR) Rated PG

THE RAVEN
Edgar Allen Poe becomes prime suspect in a series of murders when a mysterious killer copies Poe's fictitious horror stories. A Baltimore detective teams up with Poe to clear his name and solve the case. The stakes raise when Poe's love is targeted. John Cusack, as Poe, rocks the cape, especially in those foggy, Baltimore streets. Directed by V for Vendetta's James McTeague. (AS) Rated R

SAFE
One of the best films Jason Statham has ever made, and certainly the only one where he has seemed to be nearly human, Safe tells the story of a NYPD super cop trying to keep a young girl with a big secret from being snatched up by both Russian mobsters and the Chinese Triad. Action for miles, yeah, but with an emotional core. (MAJ) Rated R
