Monsters vs. Aliens
Monsters vs. Aliens (in 3-D)
If you need a good "pick me up," this movie will do the trick. It's absolutely hilarious! The retro-style film features nerdy monsters resembling those from B-rated, sci-fi movies of the 1950s: The Creature from the Black Lagoon (The Missing Link), The Blob (B.O.B.), The Attack of the 50-Foot Woman (Ginorca), The Fly (Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.), and Mothra of "Godzilla" (Insectosaurus). Instead of attacking the innocent, they are enlisted by General W.R. Monger to save the world from the alien megalomaniac, Gallaxhar, along with his Alien Robot and army of clones. You'll want to see the 3-D version. (In theatres everywhere; Genre: Animation, Action/Adventure, Comedy; Running Time: 1 hr., 34 sec.)

AnvilAnvil! The Story of Anvil
You can't help but make comparisons of this documentary to the classic, "This is Spinal Tap." At 14, best friends Robb Reiner and Steve "Lips" Kudlow, start a heavy metal band called Anvil. They experience a brief flash of fame in Canada during the early 1980s, touring with Whitesnake and Bon Jovi. They go from spectacular beginnings to obscurity through the decades. The friends keep their pact to rock together forever. The film is funny, inspirational and poignant. (In select theatres; Genre: Arthouse/Foreign, Documentary; Running Time: 1 hr., 30 min.)

Dr. Bronner's Magic SoapboxDr. Bronner's Magic Soapbox
This is a fascinating documentary on master soapmaker Dr. Emmanuel Bronner, a self-proclaimed rabbi and Albert Einstein's nephew. After escaping the mental institution, he created a pure castile, all-vegetable soap formula that is still popular today and can be found in health food stores. The product's famous label is a "sea of words" about his philosophy "The Moral ABC" and the saying, "To Unite All Mankind Free." In the film, his son explains about the unique legacy he left behind and enduring 15 orphanages and foster homes as a child. Currently, the family business brings in millions of dollars in profits every year. (Available on DVD; Genre: Documentary; Running Time: 88 min.)

Quantum HoopsQuantum Hoops
This is a perfect film for basketball fans who can't wait for the NBA Finals. Released back in 2007 as a documentary, you'll be rooting for this awful team of academically gifted brainiacs from Cal Tech. They have one week left in their 2006 season to break a 21-year losing streak (over 240 consecutive losses). The last time their school won a single game was back in 1985. Cal Tech's team has more high school valedictorians than varsity players. And, the school boasts 31 Nobel Prize winers - the highest ratio of winners to alumni in the world. You'll have to see the nail-biting results of their last game. (Available on DVD; Genre: Documentary, Sports; Running Time: 88 min.)
