10 reasons to get to the movies

'21 Jump Street' with Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum comes out this week.

1. '21 Jump Street'

Based on the ’80s TV series, this one stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as two less-than-slick police officers who go undercover in an attempt to bust a high school drug ring.



2. 'Jeff Who Lives at Home'


By now, you’d think we’d be sick of seeing Jason Segel play a shorts-wearing manchild who lives in his mom’s basement. And yet, we’re not at all.



3. 'John Carter'


In Disney’s adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novels, Taylor Kitsch plays a Civil War vet who can’t catch a break: He ends up on Mars, gets taken prisoner by giants and then has to save the stranded princess.

4. 'A Thousand Words'

Eddie Murphy angers a spiritual guru, inciting a curse — or a blessing, if that’s your bag, hippie — that gives him only 1,000 words to speak before he dies.



5. 'Silent House'


Supposedly based on a true story, this horror flick tells the story of a father and daughter renovating an old cottage — until the weird noise coming from the top floor becomes their priority.



6. 'Project X'


Shot in hand-held style by a cast of unknowns, this — like every great high school film — is about nerds conquering all by throwing a rager.



7. 'Dr. Seuss'


The Lorax’ Zac Efron, Danny DeVito, Taylor Swift and Ed Helms voice the central characters of the beloved children’s story.



8. 'Wanderlust'


Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in this comedy about a couple who go in search of an unconventional life on a hippie commune.

9. 'Good Deeds'

Tyler Perry writes, directs and stars in this story about a successful man, named Deeds, who is jolted out of his predictable existence by doing, you guessed it, good deeds.

10. 'Gone'

Amanda Seyfried plays a woman haunted by the abduction of her sister two years prior.
