CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: WORLDS AWAY – This is a 3-D catalog of the wonders of the Vegas shows, but the spectacle is a little less spectacular on film. PG for dramatic images and mild sensuality. 88 mins.


DJANGO UNCHAINED – Another indulgent movie from Quentin Tarantino, cinema's reigning junk-genre junkie. R for graphic violence, a vicious fight, language and nudity. 165 mins.

THE GUILT TRIP – Yentl goes yenta in a worn-out mother-son yakfest. PG-13 for language, risque material. 95 mins.

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY — Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings prelude is some eye candy that truly dazzles and some that utterly distracts. PG-13 for fantasy action violence and frightening images. 169 mins.


JACK REACHER – Even if Tom Cruise isn't as physically imposing as his crime-solving/justice-dispensing ex-military policeman namesake, he can still bring the intimidation. PG-13 for violence, language and drug material. 130 mins.


LES MISERABLES — Tom Hooper's extravaganza simply will not let up until you've Felt Something — powerfully and repeatedly. PG-13 for suggestive/sexual material, violence and theme. 158 mins.


LIFE OF PI — Author Yann Martel's tale of a shipwrecked youth cast adrift on a lifeboat. PG for emotional theme and scary action. 126 mins.


LINCOLN — Not a near-parody of a Steven Spielberg film but still easier to admire than love. PG-13 for intense war violence, carnage and brief strong language. 150 mins.

MONSTERS, INC. 3D – Monsters University comes out in June and is a good excuse for converting the computer-animated Monsters, Inc. to 3-D for a prequel. G. 92 mins.


PARENTAL GUIDANCE – A mild-mannered riff on parenting, then and now. PG for some rude humor. 100 mins.

RISE OF THE GUARDIANS – Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and the Sandman have bigger callings. PG for theme and mildly scary action. 97 mins.


SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK A head-spinning wonder of a movie about love, pain, reinvention, rehabilitation and the totemic power of an NFL franchise. R for profanity, sex, drugs, violence, adult themes. 120 minutes

SKYFALL — This is easily one of the best entries ever in the 50-year, 23-film series. PG-13 for violence, sexuality, language and smoking. 143 mins.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN — PART 2 — Finally the Twilight franchise embraces its own innate absurdity. PG-13 for violence, sensuality and partial nudity. 115 mins.

THIS IS 40 – Here's your new Meet the Parents, just longer and less funny. R for sexual content, crude humor, pervasive language and drug material. 131 mins.
