Starsky & Hutch (Dvaja detektívi) - Action comedy by Todd Phillips. A campy movie based on the campy 1970s television show about two cops who drive around in their red-and-white Ford Torino while busting-up young hoods. The titular crime-fighting partners are played by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, who have already shown their natural, easy-going chemistry in Zoolander and Meet the Parents. Reportedly, though, the movie truly belongs to Snoop Dogg, who plays their pimped-out informer, Huggy Bear. Also starring Vince Vaughn as the criminal mastermind Reese Feldman.

Taking Lives (Zlodej životov) - Thriller by DJ Caruso. Evidently, Ashley Judd was busy filming a thriller with Morgan Freeman about a serial killer, so instead the filmmakers landed Angelina Jolie. She plays a gifted FBI special agent who is brought to Montreal to help catch a serial killer who assumes the identities of his victims and thus proves particularly difficult to catch. Ethan Hawke and Kiefer Sutherland also star.

Troy (Trója) - Action/Drama by Wolfgang Petersen. Maybe it's supposed to be about love and honour, but all that really matters in this "historical" epic is scantily clad beautiful people. There are the women, Diane Kruger and Rose Byrne, and the men, Orlando Bloom and Eric Bana. And then there's Brad Pitt, who looks as if he's training for the World's Strongest Man competition. As Achilles, he may kill a lot of men, but it's how he looks when he does it that leaves the most lasting impression. The rest is just filler.

21 Grams - Drama by Alejandro Gonzalez Inárritu. The English-language debut of Mexican director Inárritu, who made the fantastic, if rather unfocused, Amores perros. Much like that film, 21 Grams concerns itself with the way that seemingly disparate people can suddenly be thrust together by a terrible tragedy. Starring Sean Penn, Naomi Watts, and Benicio Del Toro.

Wrong Turn (Pach krvi) - Horror by Rob Schmidt. Not really much here to please anyone but the most passionate of teen-horror devotees. For those, there are some amusing moments and some impressive visuals. But you've all seen the rest before.
