''THE EXPENDABLES 2: (R) This action film has literally everyone's favorite butt-kicking star on the cast. Whether you're partial to the quiet, strong-type like Chuck Norris or the high-kicking Jet Li, or maybe you're into more traditional bad-asses like Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Statham or Willis, this movie has them all. The plot is simple enough, the band of seasoned mercenaries lose a partner to a mission, but when they go to seek revenge for their fallen brother, they discover there's more to this mission than revenge. With the possibility of one of the largest nuclear weapons ever created being in play, the Expendables must bust out the biggest guns, explosions, muscles, and machismo to save the day. Classic.
''THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN: (PG) When parents Cindy and Jim Green have exhausted all outlets of trying to become pregnant, it seems they will never have a child of their own. When the frustrated parents have a moment of inspiration, they grab a pen and paper and write down all the wonderful traits and characteristics their hypothetical child would have. After a good laugh, they bury the box in their garden and forget about it for a little while. Then one stormy night, a muddy boy shows up in their home, seemingly as if he grew straight out of the garden. As they fall in love with their new son Timothy, he starts to rub off his own magic charm on the rest of their small town, as everyone discovers just how special Timothy is.
''PARANORMAN: (PG) Norman is a strange kid. His parents don't seem to understand him, the kids at school pick on him, and most of his friends are dead, that's right; dead. Norman can see and talk to ghosts, which is great until one day Norman is warned that the ghost of evil witch is planning to raise the dead. Norman must get the town of people who think he's weird and crazy to believe that they are in danger and stop the witch before the town is taken over by zombies.
''SPARKLE: (PG-13) Sparkle's voice is enough to turn heads and she has the face to match. When one day she is discovered by a member of her church who hears her singing, he is able to convince Sparkle and her sisters to sing together in a local club. As their popularity starts to rise, Sparkle and her sisters have to avoid similar pitfalls their mother (played by Whitney Huston) fell into as she was once trying to become a star. With big music industry voices like Cee Lo Green, Whitney Huston, and Jordin Sparks, this Motown homage film has the sound to back it up.
DULY NOTED:

EASY MONEY: (R) Lower-class business student JW starts slipping into the wealthy-elite scene, he quickly falls in love with a beautiful heiress to a vast fortune. To maintain his mask of wealth, JW is lured into a life of crime. As JW becomes more and more tangled up in the mafia and organized crime, he quickly learns the glamor of the rich life comes at the highest price. Plaza Theatre, 931 Monroe Drive ''
KILLER JOE: (NC-17) When Chris' drug stash is found and taken by his mother, he has to come up with $6,000 or he's a dead man. Desperate and scared, Chris turns to Killer Joe (Mathew McConaughey), a dirty cop that will carry out assassinations for pay. The only catch is, Joe only accepts advance payments, and although the insurance policy for Chris' mom is $50,000 dollars, he can't get a dime of it until he pays Joe to kill his mom. Instead of payment, Killer Joe offers to take Chris' young sister, Dottie, as a payment retainer, and things start to get really creepy. McConaughey is frightening in this high-stakes drama.
