American Reunion

No. 1 -- American Reunion

Jim, Michelle, Oz and Stifler are back! Only they're 10 years older and hopefully a whole lot smarter…? Don’t hold your breath -- we aren’t.

Christian Bale stars in this period piece set in Japan in 1937. When a westerner discovers women hiding out in a church, he poses as a priest to try to protect them in this beautifully-filmed emotional drama.

No. 4 -- Being Flynn

When a young man discovers the person he thinks is his father at a local homeless shelter, life has new meaning. This father-son drama about finding out where you come from -- even if it’s more painful than not knowing -- stars Paul Dano, Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore.

Rotten Tomatoes: 55% splat

No. 5 -- Freak Dance

If you’re a fan of the famous dance movie genre, this will be a treat for you. Set on making fun of the Step Ups and Electric Boogaloos of the past decade in dance films, Freak Dance has all the clichés and a bunch of laughs as we find out what’s so charming, but also just as cheesy about dance movies.
