Top five movies
By TImes staff writer
Published January 4, 2007
Current movies recommended by the Times:
1 Rocky Balboa - Sylvester Stallone brings terrific closure to the boxing saga. Almost as good as the 1976 original.
2 The History Boys - The Tony Award-winning play goes to the movies with its original cast and wit intact.
3 Apocalypto - Mel Gibson's ultraviolent historical epic establishes him as a filmmaker whose creative instincts are beyond question.
4 Children of Men - Director Alfonso Cuaron envisions an infertile future when a revolutionary (Clive Owen) protects the world's only pregnant woman.
5 Dreamgirls - A star is born (Jennifer Hudson, above) and another reborn (Eddie Murphy) in a fine adaptation of the Broadway smash.
All dates subject to change.
