by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & BABYLON A.D. & r & & r & A dude named Toorop (Vin Diesel) is tasked with taking a very special girl to safety, out of the clutches of a cult that wants to use something in her genetic makeup to end the world. Think Children of Men meets The Fifth Element but with Vin Diesel, so probably worse than either of those. (LB) Rated PG-13





BOTTLE SHOCK


An apparently true-ish story about the rise of California wine country, centering on a snobby British wine shop owner (Alan Rickman) who intends to hold a blind competition between established French wineries and the less respected California wineries, then heads to America to find the right bottle. (LB) Rated PG-13





COLLEGE


Three high school friends (nerds, obviously) take a trip to visit a college, end up staying in a stereotypically bro-ish frat. Booze and sex and other stereotypically college things ensue. (LB) Rated R





DISASTER MOVIE


This doesn't really need an explanation, does it? A less-than-mediocre satire of other less-than-mediocre films, vaguely centering on the disaster genre. (LB) Rated PG-13





TRAITOR


Two FBI agents (Guy Pearce, Neal McDonough) think something's kinda fishy about a mysterious fellow (Don Cheadle) who keeps appearing in hot spots around the world just as an "event" (usually an explosion) takes place. The question is whether the guy, an ex-soldier, is a hero or a (see title) -- or maybe even something else. A study of contemporary terrorism hitting American soil. (ES) Rated PG-13
