10 reasons to go to the movies

10 reasons to go to the movies this week.

1. "Contagion"

Who among us would not enjoy two hours of visualizing the worst case scenario of a global outbreak of an incurable disease? No? Well Matt Damon is in it, as are Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard. That should change your mind.

2. "Warrior"

A tale of two boxing brothers makes us think of last year's giant hit, "The Fighter," but this film starring Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy is an entirely different beast set in the mixed martial arts world.

3. "Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star"

The guy behind this summer's "Zookeeper," Adam Sandler, goes a bit more blue with this story about a clueless midwesterner who moves to L.A. in order to follow in his parents' footsteps and become an adult film star.

4. "The Debt"

Helen Mirren plays a secret agent seeking the killer of Nazi crimes she first investigated in 1965.



5. "Shark Night 3D"


Sharks will eat innocent humans by way of a demented psychopath who uses the deadly sea creatures as his instruments of torture.



6. "Apollo 18"


Revisionist history is always fun - especially when it involves aliens wandering around on the moon in the late 1960s. Comprised of "found footage," we hear this film being dubbed as "Blair Witch In Space."



7. "A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy"


Hapless partier played by Jason Sudeikis tries to get his friends to have an orgy in his father's empty Hamptons home.



8. "Columbiana"


From the writers that created last year's heart-stopping action-thriller "Taken" comes another tale of violent retribution. This time Zoe Saldana avenges the murder of her parents by a Columbian drug lord.



9. "Our Idiot Brother"


Who wouldn't want Paul Rudd for a brother, even if he was a mischief-making hippie who couch-surfs through the apartments of his three sisters with complicated lives? We'd still take him.

10. "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark"

Prepare to get spooked by the whispering voices of the rat-like homonculi, who inhabit a sealed off ash vent in a very old home. When a young family moves in to renovate it, little Sally (played by Bailee Madison) may be lured into their trap.
