Land of the Dead(Krajina mŕtvych) - Horror by George Romero. For the fun fourth movie in his legendary Dead series (which began with 1968's Night of the Living Dead), Romero gives the zombies the ability to think - bad news for the remaining humans who have locked themselves in heavily guarded communities. Dennis Hopper, John Leguizamo, Asia Argento, and Simon Baker star in this enjoyable, but flawed installment.

Rumor Has It(Hovorí sa) - Comedy by Rob Reiner. Jennifer Aniston plays Sarah, a woman who returns home for her sister's wedding shortly after her own engagement to her boyfriend Jeff (Mark Ruffalo). Doubting her impending marriage, Sarah seeks the counsel of her grandmother (Shirley MacLaine), who tells her a secret that involves family friend Beau (Kevin Costner). As Sarah learns that Beau may have bedded both her mother and grandmother, she develops her own attraction to him.

Munich (Mníchov) - Drama by Steven Spielberg. A bit more emotionally restrained than much of his work, Spielberg's latest is all the better for it. He uses the assassination of Israeli athletes by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics to poignantly explore issues of violence, patriotism, and the current culture of Islamic fundamentalism, terrorism, and fear.


Casanova - Comedy by Lasse Holstrom. Heath Ledger stars as the famous playboy, who narrowly escapes the wrath of the church when he agrees to mend his promiscuous ways by taking a wife. He eventually sets his sites on Francesca (Sienna Miller), a beautiful and talented writer who shows no interest in him.

Walk the Line - Drama by James Mangold. Joaquin Phoenix excels as the Man in Black, Johnny Cash, in this solid - if not ultimately revelatory - biopic. But it's really Reese Witherspoon as June Carter, Cash's great love and savior, who steals the show. And, of course, the music is fantastic.

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang - Comedy by Shane Black. While fleeing police, actor-turned-criminal Harry Lockhart (Robert Downey, Jr) unexpectedly comes upon an audition for a movie about a private detective. After landing the part, Harry shadows real-life detective Gay Perry (Val Kilmer), who becomes his crime-fighting mentor and partner after the movie falls through. While adjusting to his new job, Harry comes across Harmony (Michelle Monaghan), a woman he loved many years ago.

Broken Flowers (Zlomené kvety) - Drama by Jim Jarmusch. What should have been the brilliant meeting of two great minds - Jarmusch and Bill Murray - is instead a sporadically funny, occasionally touching, but mostly disappointing and tedious story about an aging ladies' man who hits the road to find former lovers, in search of his potential long-lost son.
