by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & MIRRORS & r & & r & Alexandre Aja has already made the worst thriller ever (P2, about an angry/horny night watchman dressed like Santa who terrorizes a female lawyer he's infatuated with). Now with a bigger name cast (well, Keifer Sutherland anyhow), he goes for the repeat, crafting a horror film about the demons that live in mirrors that looks to have every supernatural clich & eacute; we can think of. (LB) Rated R


While some cynics think story was an afterthought to George Lucas in the Star Wars prequels, Lucas came out and admitted it about The Clone Wars. Preparing for a TV series on the topic, Entertainment Weekly reported Lucas saying he hadn't intended to make a feature film at all. "This is so beautiful," EW wrote, quoting Lucas, "why don't we just go and use the crew and make a feature?" That's never good. (LB) Rated PG


High-octane action, smartly written satire and wild comedy come together in a story of contemporary actors making a movie about a daring rescue during the Vietnam War; suddenly, they get caught up in dangerous events. Highlights include an edgy, Oscar-worthy performance by Robert Downey Jr. (in blackface) as a "Method" actor, and a riotous extended cameo by a well-known Scientologist as a repulsive producer. Directed by (and co-starring) Ben Stiller. (ES) Rated R


Two gal pals (Scarlet Johansson and Rebecca Hall) go to Spain for the summer, where both of them get romantically (or is it just sexually?) involved with a handsome, carefree fellow (Javier Bardem) who has never quite come to terms with his beautiful and troublemaking ex-wife (Penelope Cruz). Woody Allen wrote and directed this breezy comedy, and it's his best film since Sweet and Lowdown. (ES) Rated PG-13


A coming of age story set against the backdrop of mid-'90s stoner-slash-hip-hop culture, The Wackness is about a kid who deals drugs from an ice cream cart, has all sorts of neuroses and needs a shrink (Ben Kingsley) as badly as he needs a girl (Olivia Thirlby). A hell of a throwback soundtrack and a couple of choice cameos (Method Man, Mary-Kate Olsen) have us stoked. (LB) Rated R
