Toy Story 3
Short Story:
Tom Hanks
and Tim Allen reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear in the Disney Pixar sequel Toy Story 3. This time around, Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and the rest of the toys are more alive than ever: the light-hearted flick is in 3-D!

What They're Saying:
"By the time its poetic ending arrives, encapsulating the transformative, continuing power of play, we recognize that none of us move from one stage of life, or beyond, without help from our friends." - New York Daily News

"That even grown-up viewers feel invested in the toys' ultimate destination is indicative of the affection held for this franchise; that a third movie in a sequence can still offer charm and delight is the cherry on the sundae." - Seattle Times

Good for Kids?
Toy Story 3
will keep the kiddos occupied and the parents happy.

Jonah Hex
Short Story:
Based on the gun-slinging DC Comics character Jonah Hex, cowriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor take you on a bloody adventure through the Wild West as Hex attempts to capture his archrival, Turnball (John Malkovich), a villian determined to unleash hell on Earth.

What They're Saying:
"It's based on some DC Comics characters, which may explain the way the plot jumps around. We hear a lot about graphic novels, but this is more of a graphic anthology of strange occult ideas." - Chicago Sun-Times

"Here's how you know Josh Brolin has become a movie star: Jonah Hex may not be much with him, but without him? Perish the thought." - Chicago Tribune

Good for Kids?
Jonah Hex is one bloody fight -- keep children away from this one.

In case you missed...

The Karate Kid
Short Story:

After a career move requires his mother (Taraji P. Henson) to relocate to China, Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) struggles to adjust to the culture differences. But in this remake of the 1984 hit, our young hero finds a friend in the maintenance man -- and kung fu master! -- Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who helps Dre win the respect of his new classmates.

What They're Saying:
"The Karate Kid
is fun, and believable, on the most important level: It convinces us that Jaden Smith has what it takes to fight his way to the top." - Enterainment Weekly

"The original was one of its year's best movies. The new one lacks the perfect freshness of that one; there aren't many surprises, as it follows the 1984 version almost point by point. But here is a lovely and well-made film that stands on its own feet." - Chicago Sun-Times

Good for Kids?
No surprise, kids will love this tale of triumph and adore the kung fu action.

The A-Team
Short Story:
Based on the '80s TV series that made Mr. T a star, this action-flick follows a group of former special forces soldiers (Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson) who go rogue after they're framed for a crime they did not commit.

What They're Saying:
"The pyrotechnics should please the guys in the audience looking for mindless summer fun. And for the women... Cooper has his shirt off early and often. And he's clearly been to the gym." - Associated Press

"No, the plan doesn’t completely 'come together.' But this A-Team is close enough for government work." - Orlando Sentinel

Good for Kids?
The A-Team is great for the action fans who love a good laugh; not so appropriate for the under-13 crowd.

Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work
Short Story:

This documentary gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the eventful life of the hard-working, boundary-pushing comedienne.

What They're Saying:
"This is a thoroughly exhilarating, thoroughly depressing portrait of the agony and ecstasy of celebrity." - New York Magazine

"She's a teller of hilarious gutbucket truths as surely as Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor ever were. Yet while they were consumed by their demons, Rivers is just the opposite. Letting her demons run wild is what saves her, every day." - Entertainment Weekly

Good for Kids?
As usual, Joan Rivers doesn't censor herself; not a good option for children.
