New releases? Yup:

Tangled
Director: Nathan Greno, Byron Howard
Starring: Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi
Good if you want to see: Rapunzel, but with the modern humor a post-Shrek world demands from its fairy tales.

Faster
Director: George Tillman Jr.
Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Billy Bob Thornton
Good if you want to see: The Rock growl that he's going to "kill them all," and then presumably kill them all.

Burlesque
Director: Steve Antin
Starring: Christina Aguilera, Cher, Stanley Tucci
Good if you want to see: Christina Aguilera's belated answer to Mariah Carey's Glitter; an ocean of camp with no apparent shore.

The King's Speech
Director: Tom Hooper
Starring: Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush
Good if you want to see: Colin Firth do some kingly stuttering before we hand everyone involved their Oscars.

Love and Other Drugs
Director:
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway
Good if you want to see: the no-strings-attached relationship of Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal get too real, forcing her to leave on a bus--but it's fine, because he chases her down in his car. Also, she's gets naked for his fat roommate. (Source: all those fucking commercials.)
