No. 3 -- Immortals
Action, romance and shirtless Henry Cavill, who could ask for anything more? In this mythological action film, a war among men leads armies into action and women into peril. Who’s there to save them all? Our bronzed hero. Thank you, action film! Cavill looks mighty good.
Rotten Tomatoes: 37% splat
No. 4 -- Jack and Jill
Two Adam Sandler’s are better than one. That’s what we always say. In this funny, light-hearted twinsy comedy, Sandler v. Sandler in a movie about loving your family, even when they drive you crazy (and look like you!).

No. 5 -- The Skin I Live In
Antonio Banderas plays a successful plastic surgeon who develops a new technique to make human skin. Seems like it might help people, especially those suffering from burns or other skin related issues. When it turns out the skin also works as a shield, Banderas has to decide how far he will go to perfect and protect his valuable new invention.
