by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Inside Man -- Spike Lee regains much of the ground he lost over his last few films. This is a terrific heist movie, with plenty of angles we haven't seen before. Clive Owen has planned the perfect bank job (or something), Denzel Washington is the cool and calm detective trying to stop things before they go too far, and Jodie Foster is the mysterious and powerful woman who can miraculously make the impossible happen ... with discretion. (ES) Rated R
Stay Alive -- Looks like Malcolm's in the middle of more than he can handle. Yes, Frankie Muniz has gone from crappy 'tween action movies to crappy teen horror flicks. (Horizontal move, if you ask us.) The premise, near as we can tell, is that if you die in this ultra-underground video game, you -- wait for it -- die in real life. Rated PG-13
Larry the Cable Buy: Health Inspector -- The year's first redneck star vehicle, the blue-collar comedy tour's Larry the Cable Guy plays way outside his usual acting range, pretending he cares about cleanliness. It'll be "git 'er done," for two hours. Less, if we're lucky. Rated PG-13
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.
