ARGO — During the 1979 Iran hostage crisis, a CIA agent leads a daring mission to rescue six U.S. diplomats. R for language, violent imagery. 131 mins.

FLIGHT — In this thrilling, and even darkly funny, story, Denzel Washington is an airline pilot and serious alcoholic. Mechanical failure on a flight forces him to pull off a daring crash landing, and he's rightly hailed as a hero, but the subsequent federal investigation also reveals his rampant substance abuse. R for drug and alcohol abuse, language, sexuality/nudity and intense action. 135 mins.

HITCHCOCK – The man who made Psycho was no lightweight, though he kind of comes off that way in this portrait of Alfred Hitchcock. Starring Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock and Helen Mirren as his wife and collaborator, Alma, the film puts a featherlight yet entertaining touch on the behind-the-scenes struggle to make the mother of all slasher films. PG-13 for some violent images, sexual content and thematic material. 98 minutes.


LIFE OF PI — Author Yann Martel's tale of a shipwrecked youth cast adrift on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger is one of those lyrical, internalized novels that should have no business working on the screen. But the delicate narrative does work, thanks to Ang Lee's adaptation. PG for emotional thematic content and some scary action seqauences. 126 minutes.


LINCOLN . Daniel Day-Lewis in an act of human alchemy, delivering an absolutely extraordinary performance as the 16th president of the United States, campaigning to end the Civil War and abolish slavery. A film about America's unqiue political process, and the leader trying to bend it to his will. 120 minutes PG-13 (violence, adult themes)


PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER – A teen outsider copes with first love, mental illness and the suicide of his best friend. PG-13 for theme, drugs/alcohol, sexuality. 103 mins.


SKYFALL — This is easily one of the best entries ever in the 50-year, 23-film series, led once again by an actor who's the best Bond yet in Daniel Craig. The film's central threat of cyberterrorism couldn't be more relevant. PG-13 for intense violence, some sexuality, language and smoking. 143 mins.

WRECK-IT RALPH – Disney Animation takes a page out of Pixar's playbook for this screwball farce that finds fun in the outside-the-arcade-game life of the characters trapped inside. 98 mins. PG for rude humor and mild action/violence.
