Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & DRILLBIT TAYLOR & r & & r & Three kids hire Owen Wilson as protection (a "Budget Bodyguard") from playground bullies. There's a joke in here about career suicide, but we'll restrain ourselves. However, Seth Rogen (who co-wrote this movie) has failed in restraining himself from indulging in every geeks-punch-meanies-and-get-the-babes gag he could muster. Rated PG-13





SHUTTER


From the producers of The Ring and in the spirit of any number of (increasingly horrible) remakes of (bad-to-begin-with) technology-phobic Japanese horror films, Shutter examines the murderous side of "spirit photography," whereby people take pictures of things, find little weird apparitions on the developed film, and assume it's gotta be ghosts rather than, you know, a light leak or something. Here, those "light leaks" actually are ghosts. And they kill people. Somehow. (LB) Rated PG-13





TYLER PERRY'S MEET THE BROWNS


Another fiscal quarter, another Tyler Perry dramedy about the perils and pratfalls of black suburban families. In this one, a woman takes her family to Georgia to the funeral of her father, whom she's never met, then runs into a clan of crass relations that will no doubt teach her a lesson or two about family. You know how you can tell America's becoming color-blind? Forget the current presidential race -- the number of middling suburban black family comedies is pulling even with the number of middling suburban white family comedies. Feels like progress. (LB) 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.
