The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Short Story:
The Twilight Saga continues with Eclipse, and Bella, once again, finds herself at the center of the drama. A series of mysterious killings have ravaged Seattle, while Victoria the blood-thirsty vampire continues her unrelenting quest for revenge. If that weren't enough, now Bella must choose between her love, Edward and her best friend Jacob -- all in time for high school graduation.

What They're Saying:
"Director David Slade keeps the action brisk and the time-killing attractive ... All of which should be like a freshly opened vein for fans." - NPR

"While the new Eclipse remains foremost a flick for devotees, it has sturdier pleasures and takes on its emotional ambitions with renewed dedication." - Denver Post

Good for Kids?
Twilight: Eclipse
is too gory for the little ones, but tweens and teens obviously will crave this sequel.

The Last Airbender
Short Story:
Based on the Nickelodeon animated series, The Last Airbender chronicles the adventures of four nations (Earth, Wind, Air and Fire) as they struggle to avoid destruction. When the Fire Nation launches a war against the others, a young avatar, Aang (Noah Ringer) along with his team of friends must battle to restore order to their war-torn world.

What They're Saying:
"The movie's redeeming feature might be its beauty, but you have to take off your 3-D glasses to fully appreciate it. The lenses blunt and mute the unique tones and colors that Shyamalan uses to create his lavish fantasy kingdoms." - Philadelphia Daily News

"He hasn't mastered the craft yet, but M. Night Shyamalan may be on to something with this action-movie thing." - USA Today

Good for Kids?
A kid favorite on the TV screen, the little ones will love this 3-D adaptation of The Last Airbender.

What They're Saying:
"Beyond implausible, but loads of fun thanks to the chemistry of the leads." - RichardRoeper.com

"Knight and Day shows Cruise firing on all cylinders, and moviegoers will be reminded of why they rushed out to see his movies in the first place." - Access Hollywood

Grown Ups
Short Story:
Grown Ups
tells the story of five childhood friends (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and David Spade) who reunite after the death of their high school basketball coach. With families in tow, the guys spend July 4th weekend at the lake house where they won their championship years ago. Rehashing old memories and juggling family life, they soon discover that growing old doesn’t mean growing up.

What They're Saying:
"Diverting enough to get by, Grown Ups is Adam Sandler growing up -- but not too much." -Entertainment Weekly

"Maybe the summer swelter is melting my brain, but Adam Sandler and four other showboats desperately needing a hit had me laughing at Grown Ups more than expected. Let's give credit where credit is due. It's not the heat; it's the stupidity." - St. Petersburg Times

Good for Kids?
Put the 13 and under crowd to bed before heading out to the multiplex for this one.
