As a child, Meg Cabot was a Disney princess worshipper. Her favorite fairy tale was "Beauty and the Beast," she had a Snow White cake for her sixth birthday and remembers drawing Cinderella endlessly on her notepads. Today, Cabot is watching her own Cinderella story unfold. She has become a best-selling author, hitting the jackpot when she penned "The Princess Diaries," a young adult novel that was adapted for the big screen. But Cabot's writing success isn't just for kids.

"X-Men: First Class" is the fifth film (and second prequel) in the "X-Men" franchise.  At this point I would expect the series to be shedding quality in order to be more efficient in pumping out by-the numbers installments.   And yet "X-Men: First Class" is a film that is anything but "pumped out. " It is not only a worthy entry in the series, it is the worthiest. It is the best film in the entire "X-Men" universe.   Of course, it is not a film that will define the franchise.

The Joker of "Batman" fame is my favorite villain of all time. Gotham City never saw a better bad guy. He represents a side of everyone who doesn't care. He's the ultimate anarchist who wants nothing more than to make a mess of things just to see if people are willing to clean it up. There is no monetary or influential motivation. He is an unstoppable force - and that scares people. I guiltily admit that I had low expectations for the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight," because nothing compares to the comic books.

At first glance, it doesn't seem as though Marjane Satrapi of "Persepolis" and Vanya Hargreeves of "Umbrella Academy" have anything in common. Marjane is portrayed in her graphic-novel autobiography as a young girl growing up in Iran and facing changes in custom and culture; the story is set against the backdrop of the 1979 revolution and social upheaval. In "Umbrella Academy," there is Vanya, a woman who, embittered by her loveless childhood and absence of powers in a superhero family, quite literally becomes an instrument of total destruction.
