If you've seen the original "The Silence of the Lambs," you know how intense Anthony Hopkins can be on-screen. His psychological mind-games with Jodie Foster's Clarice Starling are forever embedded into movie history. Today's release of "Fracture" puts Hopkins on the wrong side of the law again, challenging a young district attorney (played by Ryan Gosling) to a game of mental chess.
Our Featured Critic gave Fracture three out of four stars and says "At first glance, Fracture appears to be a run-of-the-mill thriller but, sitting through it, the viewer will become aware that it's doing some interesting things."
A second movie in the "Thriller" genre is "Vacancy" in which Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson check into the worst lodgings this side of the Bates Motel. They play a young couple that become stranded at a desolate motel. Inconvenience and concern over questionable sheets turns to deadly fear when they discover hidden video cameras in their room and a stash of videos of killings that occurred in that very room, with them the stars of an upcoming installment.
The New York Times disliked it, but the Chicago Tribune calls it an "expert shocker." I can think of worse ways to spend 80 minutes, so I'd be willing to check it out.
If you liked "Shaun of the Dead," you'll most likely be pumped for today's release of "Hot Fuzz." Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are back, and this time they are two London cops who are convinced that a series of accidents in their sleepy neighborhood are not what they seem to be.
How long has it been since you've seen Meg Ryan on the big screen? If you can't remember, well, now's your chance. She's starring in the movie "In the Land of Women" which is about a guy in LA who gets dumped by his girlfriend and goes to live with his grandmother in Detroit. While he tries to sort things out, he gets involved with the Hardwicke women across the street. The movie also stars Adam Brody, Kristen Stewart, and Olympia Dukakis.
We've got lots of photos for this movie, so be sure to visit the Photo Galleries page for an full album of photos.
If you're getting excited about the upcoming release of Spider-Man 3, don't just sit there! Many theaters are publishing their showtimes for Midnight shows on Thursday, May 3rd, as well as a full array of showtimes on its opening day (May 4th).
Tickets for this movie (and quite a few others this summer) are going to be very hot, so don't even think about waiting until you get to the theater to buy your tickets! Avoid the hassle of waiting in line, and buy your tickets in advance!
You can print them out at home and completely skip the ticket line at the theater. You'll have your concessions in hand and be walking into the theater by the time that everyone else in line gets through the first set of doors at the ticket counter.

Like I said, this summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest summer seasons that theaters have seen for quite a few years, with the round of blockbuster sequels including "Spider-Man 3," "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," "Shrek the Third," and "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."
All five of these movies are on the list of Reader Favorites on our Coming Soon page, so you know that they're going to be very popular. Buying your tickets in advance just makes too much sense to ignore!
