1. Mad Hot Ballroom - New York City public school students learn ballroom dancing in a documentary to make the hardest hearts melt and the clumsiest feet want to move.
2. Batman Begins - More cerebral than slam-bang, but Christopher Nolan's take on the comic book legend should satisfy fans. Christian Bale cuts an impressive figure in the batsuit.
3. Ladies in Lavender - Those grand Dames, Maggie Smith and Judi Dench, play Cornish spinsters vying for the attention of a shipwrecked young man.
4. Mr. & Mrs. Smith - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie co-star as husband and wife, each unaware that the other is a hired assassin. Until they have to kill each other.
5. Saving Face - Pleasant comedy about a fledgling lesbian and her mother, who's pregnant and secretive about the biological father, in their traditional Chinese-American neighborhood.
