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

THE GUILT TRIP – Yentl goes yenta in a tired mom-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 extended intense fantasy action violence and frightening images. 169 mins.


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


HYDE PARK ON HUDSON – This warts-and-all portrait demonstrates that Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in many ways a real live wire. R for brief sexuality. 95 mins.

LES MISERABLES — Tom Hooper's extravaganza, big-screen telling of the beloved musical is relentlessly driven and simply will not let up until you've Felt Something. 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 with a Bengal tiger. PG for emotional theme and scary action. 126 mins.


LINCOLN — This is a lot more reserved than the expected Spielberg parody 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 that's 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.

PROMISED LAND – Residents of a small town must decide whether to lease their land to a gas company for drilling. R for language. 106 mins.

RISE OF THE GUARDIANS – Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy and the Sandman have a bigger calling than just providing gifts, eggs, quarters and sweet dreams. PG for thematic elements 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

TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D – This purported direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic scores points for sheer brazenness, but there isn't much to recommend it. R for grisly violence and language. 92 mins.

THE IMPOSSIBLE – The horror of the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 is made intimate. PG-13 for intense realistic disaster sequences, including disturbing injury images and brief nudity. 122 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.
