January 10, 2006


Opening this week

"Glory Road" (PG) - This is the true story of the underdog Texas Western basketball team, with history's first all-African American starting lineup of players. The team took the country by storm, surprisingly winning the 1966 NCAA tournament title. Starring Josh Lucas, Derek Luke, Austin Nichols, Evan Jones and Emily Deschanel.

"Hoodwinked" (PG) - An updated retelling of the classic fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood." The satire begins where the story left off, as there is always more to every tale than meets the eye. Furry and feathered cops from the animal world, Chief Grizzly and Detective Bill Stork, investigate a domestic disturbance at Granny's cottage, involving a girl, a wolf and an axe. Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close, James Belushi, Anthony Anderson and Patrick Warburton star.

"Last Holiday" (PG-13) - After being diagnosed with a fatal disease, a shy sales clerk goes on a European vacation to live out the rest of her life - or so she thinks. Her behavior becomes more irreverent and outrageous each day, only to find out later she was misdiagnosed. Starring Queen Latifah, Alicia Witt, LL Cool J, Giancarlo Esposito and Gerard Depardieu.


"Tristan & Isolde" (PG-13)) - In the medieval legend of Tristan and Isolde, the young lovers become doomed against the forces of royal politics. English knight Tristan wins the hand of the daughter of the Irish king, but the love threatens the truce between the two countries. JB Blanc, Thomas Morris, Bronagh Gallagher, Todd Kramer and Dexter Fletcher star.
