I doubt that Soul Men will be very good, but I'll watch it just to see the late Bernie Mac. His untimely death teaches all of us not to do tomorrow (or months from now) what you can do today! I know the perfect girl to take to the ghoulish Repo! The Genetic Opera, but she's so darn unavailable! Were there unresolved plot points from the original Madagascar that required a Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa? Does anyone not like Paul Rudd? The great David Wain (watch this!) directed Role Models so I will definitely check it out.

Boy in the Striped Pajamas is a crushing film about two boys who become friends in Nazi Germany: one a Jewish prisoner, the other the son of the camp's commandant. Captain Abu Raed is a lyrical fantasy about the magic of lying; Circulation is a creepy, metaphysical Mexican horror film; JCVD may herald the re-birth of Jean-Claude Van Damme (no!); House is your typical grade-Z slasher flick; The World Unseen is a story about friends in apartheid-era South Africa that feels ten years late.
