Alan Smithee's take on what's new at the movies

1. "Hancock." Will Smith has made better movies but, thankfully, this is no "Love Guru" stinkbomb.

2. "Reprise." One of the best movies to come out of Norway in years (as if anybody could name five).

3. "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl." Its release goes wide, which means ticket prices finally drop to reasonable rates.

If you haven't seen these yet, each is a good way to celebrate a holiday weekend:

1. "Wall-E." Everything works: the screenplay, the visuals. If only more studios were as smart as Pixar.

2. "Iron Man." Still the action movie of the summer.

3. "Kung Fu Panda." Funny and fun.
