by Inlander Staff Lara Croft Tomb Raider 2: The Cradle of Life -- Angelina Jolie returns in all her pouty-lipped badditude, and this time the tomb she's raiding is called the Cradle of Life. Although the Cradle of Life contains that famous little item of Greek mythology known as Pandora's Box, Lara (who obviously must have been skipping her humanities classes) invades tombs from Kenya to Hong Kong. Hmmm. Cradle of Life? Temple of Doom? Pandora's Box? Ark of the Covenant? Lara Croft? Indy Jones? Must just be a coincidence. Rated: PG-13
*** Seabiscuit -- A horse is not a horse, of course, of course. Seabiscuit was a washed-up loser when he was discovered by trainer Tom Smith (Chris Cooper) in the mid-1930s. When "Team Seabiscuit" came together - Smith, owner Charles Howard (Jeff Bridges) and jockey Red Pollard (Tobey Maguire) -- a national folk hero came into being. Gary Ross's (Pleasantville) film looks at these characters, points out their many foibles, intertwines their lives and adds a grand dose of excitement on the thundering track. (ES) Rated: PG-13
Spy Kids 3D: Game Over -- Everyone returns, including Floop (Alan Cumming) in a cameo, as one of the young agents (Carmen) gets caught in a virtual reality game, presided over by an evil Sylvester Stallone. Get out your 3-D glasses. Rated: PG

The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
