Starring: Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Paul Bettany, Timothy Dalton

Directed by: Florian Henckel Von Donnersmack

Plot: An American tourist meets a beautiful woman on a train but soon finds himself confused with an international criminal and learns that his meeting wasn’t by chance.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 20%

Critic Consensus: “The scenery and the stars are undeniably beautiful, but they can’t make up for The Tourist’s slow, muddled plot, or the lack of chemistry between Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.”

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Starring: Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Will Poulter, Liam Neeson

Directed by: Michael Apted

Plot: Lucy and Edmund Pevensie, with their cousin Eustace, return to Narnia to join Prince Caspian and the crew of the Dawn Treader on a journey to the edge of the world.

RT Freshness: 51%

Critic Consensus: “Its leisurely, businesslike pace won’t win the franchise many new fans, but Voyage of the Dawn Treader restores some of the Narnia franchise’s lost luster with strong performances and impressive special effects.”

The Fighter

Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo

Directed by: David O. Russell

Plot: The story of the early years of the boxing career of “Irish” Mickey Ward.

RT Freshness: 84%

Critic Consensus: “Led by a trio of captivating performances from Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams, The Fighter is a solidly entertaining, albeit predictable, entry in the boxing drama genre.”
