One Day
Short Story:
On July 15, 1988, polar opposites Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess) and Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) meet and begin a friendship that lasts a lifetime. Em is a working-class girl looking to improve the world and Dex is a wealthy charmer living the bachelor lifestyle. The film checks in with the pair every July 15 for 20 years, showing how their friendship grows and evolves into the love of a lifetime.

What They're Saying:
"It's a frustrating film, never light enough on its feet to be cute, never heartfelt enough to achieve 'You had me at Hello.'" -- Orlando Sentinel

"In a season of movies dumb and dumber, One Day has style, freshness and witty bantering dialogue." -- Chicago Sun-Times

Good For Kids?
Rated PG-13 for sexual content and partial nudity, this is a flick for mature teenagers and adults. Hire a babysitter if you are in the mood for a romantic drama featuring two hot young actors.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World
Short Story:
Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) seems to have the perfect life: a new baby, two step kids (Rowan Chanchard and Mason Cook) and a famous TV reporter husband (Joel McHale). But Marissa is a retired secret agent -- and, when the evil TimeKeeper (Jeremy Piven) threatens to take over the world, she has to leap back into action. With a new Spy Kid division open, Marissa's stepchildren Rebecca and Cecil get help from some familar spies Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara) as they try to save the planet. As an added bonus, it's in 4-D -- which means it uses "Aromascope" so you can smell what's going on in the movie.

What They're Saying:
This movie has yet to be reviewed.

Good for Kids?
The fourth installment in the Spy Kids franchise is perfect for kids looking for adventure with their favorite family of spies. Common Sense Media says: "Kids who were fans of the first films may have aged out of the target audience by now, but even tweens and kids who aren't familiar with the earlier movies will want to check out a flick that stars kids as action heroes."

Conan the Barbarian
Short Story:
Jason Momoa of Game of Thrones fame steps into the role of the sword-weilding barbarian that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a star, though filmmakers promise a new take on the saga. When his father is murdered and his village destroyed, Conan sets out on a quest for vengeance -- and ends up defending the great nations of Hyboria from witches and monsters who mean to conquer them.

What They're Saying:
"Here's a movie that's simultaneously lavishly violent and numbing, visually ornate and undistinguished, epic and shallow, relentlessly noisy and tone-deaf, workmanlike and unfilling." -- Entertainment Weekly

"Both truer to the vision of its character's creator, Robert E. Howard, and more satisfyingly pulpy than the 1982 movie incarnation." -- Village Voice

Good For Kids?
Common Sense Media reminds parents that this is a take on the Conan story inspired by the 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie. Rated R for strong, bloody violence and some nudity, this one isn't kid-friendly in the slightest. Click to read the full Common Sense review!

Fright Night
Short Story:
Charlie Brewster (Anton Yelchin) has it all: He's popular and dating one of the hottest girls in school, but trouble arrives when a mysterious man named Jerry (Colin Farrell) moves in next door. Everyone seems to think Jerry is a great guy, including Charlie's mom (Toni Collette) -- but, as the trailer reveals, Jerry is actually a bloodthirsty vampire who's been killing kids in the area.

What They're Saying:
"This decent remake of the '80s vampire favorite should satiate horror fans." -- Hollywood Reporter

"At least this new version stays true to its origins by having a bit of cheeky fun, and the way it contemporizes the story is really rather clever." -- Associated Press

Good for Kids?
Rated R for bloody horror violence, it's best to hire a babysitter if you plan to see this reimagining of the 1985 cult favorite. Perfect for scary-movie fans, the film has recieved stellar reviews from the critics and should not be missed!

In case you missed:

The Help
Short Story:
Skeeter (Emma Stone) is a journalist living in Jackson, Miss., in the midst of the  1960s civil rights movement. Hoping to challenge societal rules and break down the color barrier, Skeeter enlists maids Aibileen (Viola Davis) and Minny (Octavia Spencer) to write a novel from the perspective of "the help." Keeping the maids' identities secret to protect their safety, the novel forces the citizens of Jackson to come face-to-face with their racial issues. 

What They're Saying:
"(The Help) is, in some ways, crude and obvious, but it opens up a broad new swath of experience on the screen, and parts of it are so moving and well acted that any objections to what's second-rate seem to matter less as the movie goes on." -- New Yorker

"The Help brings a chick-flick sensibility to a serious subject, which is more daring than it might sound. It's also incredibly refreshing." -- Newsday

Good for Kids?
Rated PG-13, parents should be aware that this movie deals with some mature issues. Common Sense Media says the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's best-selling novel "isn't likely to appeal to young kids but is a historically relevant drama that mature tweens and teens can see with their parents." Recommended for children ages 12 and above, the film deals with some heavy issues such as segregation, physical abuse and miscarriages. Click to read the full Common Sense review!

Glee: The 3D Concert Movie
Short Story:
Fox's hit show Glee heads to the big screen for an eye-popping 3-D concert experience showcasing live performances of the show's most popular songs, as well as behind-the-scenes coverage and fan interviews.

What They're Saying:
"The title promises a concert movie, in 3-D, based on the show Glee, and the film delivers precisely that, in a way that I believe is sure to overjoy fans of the show." -- MSN Movies

"Haters, head for the door. But Gleeks? Get your Glee on." -- Orlando Sentinel

Good for Kids?
This movie is perfect for Gleeks of any age! There is no need for parents to worry: According to Common Sense Media the PG-rated movie "is much tamer than the TV show" and leaves out "heavy/edgy material." With fan interviews, the movie stands by Glee's positive message to celebrate diversity and accept what makes everyone different. Click to read the full Common Sense review!

30 Minutes or Less
Short Story:
In this action-comedy, Nick (Jesse Eisenburg) is a pizza delivery boy with a rather boring life. But things get interesting when he is kidnapped by two idiot criminals (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson), strapped with a bomb and forced to rob a bank before the bomb goes "boom!" With time ticking away, he enlists the help of his best friend Chet (Aziz Ansari) -- and learns a few things about living life to the fullest. 

What They're Saying:
"None of this crackles with the kind of breezy, madcap hilarity that it should; it's actually rather tortured and convoluted." -- Associated Press

"Moral of the story: If you occupy the demographic that this film is aimed at, Hollywood doesn't have a very high opinion of you." -- Chicago Sun-Times

Good for Kids?
This one has an R rating -- thanks to some nudity, sexual content and violence -- so leave the kiddies at home!

Watch the preview!

Final Destination 5
Short Story:
In the fifth installment of the Final Destination franchise, a man saves a group of coworkers when a suspension bridge collapses. But the groups soon finds out that no one can escape Death (yes, with a capital "D"). In a race against time, the group must frantically figure out a way to cheat death as he tries to find creative ways to kill them.

What They're Saying:
"To borrow from TV terminology, the series hasn't jumped the shark yet, but the strain of inventing bizarre deaths is beginning to show." -- Hollywood Reporter

"It almost kills me to say that Steven Quale's Final Destination 5 brings sanity to a single-minded, broken record of a franchise that has, until now at least, seemed predisposed against thoughtfulness." -- Slant Magazine

Good for Kids?
With a R rating, Common Sense Media tells parents to "expect another round of horrific gore, violence and death." So it's probably wise to leave the kids at home; only adults and teenagers with an interest in horror films should see this one. Click here to read the full Common Sense review!
