Plot: Evil warlord King Hyperion is attempting to conquer both Heaven and Earth by freeing the Titans from their prison in Mt. Tarturus and Zeus calls upon Theseus, a poor stonemason, to lead the resistance against him.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 38%

Critic Consensus: “The melding of real sets, CG work, and Tarsem’s signature style produces fireworks, though the same can’t be said for Immortals slack, boring storytelling”

J. Edgar

Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, Armie Hammer, Josh Lucas, Judi Dench, Ed Westwick, Jeffrey Donovan

Directed by: Clint Eastwood

Plot: The rise to power of J. Edgar Hoover as he became the head of the FBI and one of the most powerful men in the country.

RT Freshness: 42%

Critic Consensus: “Leonardo DiCaprio gives a predictably powerhouse performance, but J. Edgar stumbles in all other departments with cheesy makeup, poor lighting, confusing narrative, and humdrum storytelling”

Jack and Jill

Starring: Adam Sandler, Katie Holmes, Al Pacino, Elodie Tougne, Rohan Chand, Eugenio Derbez

Directed by: Dennis Dugan

Plot: Successful ad executive Jack Sadelstein must survive the annual visit of his identical twin sister, Jill, during the holidays.

RT Freshness: 3%

Critic Consensus: “Although it features an inexplicably committed performance from Al Pacino, Jack and Jill is impossible to recommend on any level whatsoever”
