DATEWORTHY? MOSTLY. This teen sci-fi romance features sweet lead performances in an original concept - what would happen if a teenage human boy living on a NASA project on Mars met an earthbound girl and fell in love? - but a few plot holes require gravity-defying suspensio...

SPLIT: The latest mind-bending, twisty thriller from M. Night Shyamalan of "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs" fame delivers the goods on intelligent scares done in mostly tasteful fashion, but be aware this is his darkest story ever until its memorable conclus...
SILENCE: This overlong story of Catholic missionaries risking martyrdom in 1600s Japan tries to pretend that it's a powerful look at faith under duress, but in fact is dangerous because it makes viewers sympathize with denial of faith long after the threat to the priests...
