As always, check your local listings for times, because I haven't even listed any.

X-Men: First Class
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Starring: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence
Good if you want to see: an X-Men film that finally involves Kevin Bacon and the Kennedy administration.

Submarine (limited)
Director: Richard Ayoade
Starring: Craig Roberts, Yasmine Paige
Good if you want to see: clever, well-composed, precocious coming-of-age that can substitute for your weekend dose of Rushmore or Harold & Maude.

Beginners (limited)
Director: Mike Mills
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, Melanie Laurent
Good if you want to see: Ewan McGregor learn that ol' dad is both gay and dying of cancer, meaning his father had long been living the lie of being straight and not dying of cancer.

Beautiful Boy (limited)
Director: Shawn Ku
Starring: Michael Sheen, Maria Bello, Kyle Gallner
Good if you want to see: a married couple on the verge of separation forced back together because of their son's participation in school shooting. I suppose video games will be blamed for keeping unhappy couples together now, too?

Mr. Nice (limited)
Director:
Starring: Rhys Ifans, Crispin Glover,
Good if you want to see: The Lizard being a Welsh drug smuggler.

Love, Wedding, Marriage
Director: Dermot Mulroney
Starring: Mandy Moore, Kellan Lutz, Jessica Fzohr
Good if you want to see: Dermot Mulroney use all his skills in the business to somehow craft a romantic-comedy even worse than any he's been in.
