Win Win

Ratig 3 1/2

(Cineplex Odeon) Filmmaker Thomas McCarthy makes an improbably gentle tale out of this story about a small-town lawyer and highschool wrestling coach (Paul Giamatti) who gets involved in a crooked scheme that puts him into contact with a lonely teenager who's also a star wrestler. It's a warm character sketch -maybe too warm -that's easy to like. -Jay Stone. PG


The Adjustment Bureau

(Roxy) The affair between a politician and a ballerina is affected by mysterious forces keeping the lovers apart. Stars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. PG


(Caprice, Cineplex Odeon, SilverCity) A drunken playboy stands to lose a wealthy inheritance when he falls for a woman his family doesn't like. Stars Russell Brand, Helen Mirren and Jennifer Garner. PG


Rating 4

(Empire Capitol 6, Empire University 4, SilverCity) Saoirse Ronan stars as a young girl trained by her father (Eric Bana) to be an assassin, and then sent out to battle an old nemesis (Cate Blanchett). It's an art-house spy thriller that's also a fairy tale about a little girl who goes into the woods to kill a wicked witch.

Sometimes it feels overly designed, but it's electric. -Jay Stone. PG

Hobo with a Shotgun

(Empire Capitol 6) A homeless vigilante blows away crooked cops, pedophile Santas and other scumbags with his trusty pump-action shotgun. Stars Rutger Hauer, Gregory Smith and Robb Wells. 18A


(Caprice, Empire Capitol 6, SilverCity) E.B., the Easter Bunny's teenage son, heads to Hollywood determined to become a drummer in a rock 'n' roll band. In L.A., he's taken in by Fred after the out-of-work slacker hits E.B. with his car. Stars Russell Brand, James Marsden and Elizabeth Perkins. G


Rating 3

(Empire Capitol 6, SilverCity) James Wan's new horror movie is a haunted-house film run amok. Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne play a couple whose son falls into a coma and is visited by strange spectres. The creaky frights give way to a Ghostbusters tribute, but not before you get a good case of the willies. -Jay Stone. 14A

Jane Eyre

Rating 4

(Cineplex Odeon) Cary Fukunaga directs this update on the Charlotte Bronte classic with a steady hand and an unflinching eye. Steering clear of melodrama to deliver a relatively matter-of-fact story of Victorian survival, the director lets the plot do all the heavy dramatic lifting while the actors are left to keep things minimal and authentic. A refreshing change from the musty bodice rippers of the past, this Jane Eyre pays homage to Bronte's heroine and her unflagging strength in the face of adversity. -Katherine Monk. G

The King's Speech

Rating 4

(Roxy) A deeply entertaining, deeply middlebrow drama about a speech impediment. Colin Firth is wonderful as King George VI, thrust onto the English throne and paralyzed by a hopeless stammer; Geoffrey Rush is amusingly eccentric as the Australian speech therapist who helps him. -Jay Stone. PG


Rating 3 1/2

(SilverCity) An action adventure of the mind. Bradley Cooper plays a dissipated writer whose life changes when he finds a secret pill that makes him smarter. Suddenly, he's also sexier and richer -and in danger. It's a stylish thriller with a bonus performance by Robert De Niro as a shadowy businessman. -Jay Stone. PG

The Lincoln Lawyer

Rating 3

(Empire Capitol 6) Though Matthew McConaughey is usually the actor's equivalent of a Speedo swimsuit, the natural slime factor works in his favour in this legal thriller, as he plays an attorney who works from the back of a car. Cocky and arrogant, McConaughey's character thinks he's got it all under control until a smarter, richer and truly amoral villain enters the frame. The ideas are big, but director Brad Furman lacked the skills to make this more than a mediocre thriller, despite Marisa Tomei and William H. Macy's stellar turns in small roles. -Katherine Monk. 14A


Rating 3 1/2

(Roxy) Simon Pegg and Nick Frost star as two comic-book geeks who accidentally meet an alien (voiced by Seth Rogen), and help him evade the long arm of the law. A very funny script and a subversive sensibility help this Greg Mottola movie feel like more than a send-up, or a remake of Superbad with accents. The film has a quiet human charm that rekindles memories of E.T. -Katherine Monk. 14A


(Roxy) Rango is an ordinary chameleon who accidentally winds up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost in the Wild West in desperate need of a new sheriff. Stars Johnny Depp. PG

Soul Surfer

Rating 2 1/2

(SilverCity) AnnaSophia Robb stars as Bethany Hamilton, a real-life surfer who lost an arm in a shark attack, but who prevailed because of her belief in God. Church and Bible play an unusually large role for a Hollywood movie -it's family fare for the faith-based community -and while it's well made, any sense of drama is smoothed away. -Jay Stone.

Source Code

(Cineplex Odeon, SilverCity, Star) An action thriller centered on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he's part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train. Stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan. PG

(Cineplex Odeon, Empire University 4, SilverCity) When Prince Fabious's bride is kidnapped, he goes on a quest to rescue her ... accompanied by his lazy useless brother Thadeous. Stars Danny McBride, Zooey Deschanel and James Franco. 14A
