Directed by: Steve Martino, Mike Thurmeier
Starring: Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Aziz Ansari, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, Peter Dinklage, Heather Morris, Seann William Scott, Patrick Stewart, Wanda Sykes, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Queen Latifah, Joy Behar

Manny, Diego, and Sid are back for another adventure, this time on the high seas as the film's surprisingly sophisticated title suggests. The pals encounter pirates and a ton of new creatures in what should be an enjoyable ride for the family. The film also boasts an epic lineup of famous voices — there is truly someone for everyone.
See it? Sure.

Easy Money (Limited)
Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
Starring: Joel Kinnaman, Matias Varela, Dragomir Mrsic

Joel Kinnaman takes the lead in this Scandanavian thriller, shot in 2010 and held until now for a limited run in the States. This is solely due to the popularity of its star, whose stock has risen significantly in the past two years thanks to his fantastic portrayal of Detective Stephen Holder on AMC's The Killing. Easy Money also marks the debut of director Daniel Espinosa who made the Denzel Washington action film Safe House earlier this year. The film finds Kinnaman playing a drug runner leading a double life while fending off the Serbian mafia.
See it? Yes.

Red Lights (Limited)
Directed by: Rodrigo Cortes
Starring: Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro, Elizabeth Olsen

Red Lights is a new take on paranormal suspense/horror as the film follows Weaver and Murphy as two professors who study "red lights," the tricks psychics use to dupe people into believing in them. However, the story turns when an intimidating and popular psychic (De Niro) makes them question their lack of faith. Strong performances make up for a weak middle act, and the film's surprise ending is a bit of a mystery but is interesting at any rate.
See it? Sure.

The Imposter (Limited)
Directed by: Bart Layton

Probably the most buzzed-about documentary of the year, The Imposter follows the compelling story of a young Frenchman who travels to San Antonio and poses as a distraught couple's missing son. Check out the trailer — it's like nothing else.
See it? Yes.

Trishna (NY/LA)
Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
Starring: Freida Pinto, Riz Ahmed

One of the film industry's most prolific directors, Winterbottom seems to pump out a new movie every other month. His latest is a loose adapatation of the classic novel, Tess of the d'Ubervilles, and stars the beautiful Freida Pinto in the title role as a young woman caught in a star-crossed romance. Early reviews have not been kind, and Winterbottom is a hit or miss kind of director. Check out something else instead.
See it? No.
