The Israeli-Arab conflict is stripped to its most intensely personal level in "The Attack," a haunting and heartbreaking meditation on violence, choice, love and duty that is one of the most remarkable films of the year.
There's a fizzy silliness to "Despicable Me 2" that will make it a huge word-of-mouth hit among key demographics. That would be 2- to 6-year-olds, and parents who enjoy seeing their kids curled into balls of uncontrollable laughter.
Rodriguez isn't the only musical figure from '70s Detroit to labor in anonymity in the U.S. and then get discovered nearly 40 years later. A trio called Death - a group that defied cultural convention by being an African-American punk band before that musical term even existed - is also now enjoying a renaissance that Mark Christopher Covino and Jeff Howlett's eye-opening documentary "A Band Called Death" engagingly chronicles.
Superman steps over the line and installs himself as king of the world in "Injustice: Gods Among Us," the new fighting game from the people behind the legendary "Mortal Kombat."

Following is a partial schedule of coming movies on DVD. Release dates are subject to change:
The legend of the band Big Star was born back in May 1973, when a promoter flew legions of young rock critics into Memphis for a "convention" that was essentially a stunt to get them to hear Big Star perform.
Kevin Hart throws jokes like he's working a speed bag.
In the universe of "Gunpoint," firearms are banned. It's a creative choice that's downright bold for any piece of pop culture in 2013, but especially the trigger-happy world of gaming. But "Gunpoint" shows that compelling action sequences can consist of little more than plotting, creeping and puzzle-solving.
The studio executives must think money normally spent on DVDs will go to fireworks this holiday week. Pickings are slim.
Pierce Brosnan's daughter has died from ovarian cancer, his publicist confirms.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Sam Rockwell's reliably scruffy, irreverent swagger is much in evidence in his latest film - "The Way, Way Back." It's a serio-comic coming of age tale which has Rockwell playing Owen, the slacker manager of a water slide park who teaches our young hero, Duncan (Liam James), about girls, love and self-worth.
It may be difficult to separate Johnny Depp from his "Pirates" character Jack Sparrow, but the actor recalls a time before the boozy buccaneer became a household name.
The following game is among those scheduled for release this week, according to Gamestop.com:
LOS ANGELES - If you looked up into the sky over L.A.'s 101 Freeway last weekend, you might have noticed a massive, yellow, cylindrical aircraft hovering above the traffic. The floating orb was a blimp painted in the image of a minion - the gibberish-speaking henchmen from Universal Pictures' "Despicable Me 2."
In the timeline of the standard stand-up comic's career, Kevin Hart has surged past "young, angry and hungry," seems to be avoiding Dave Chappelle / Andy Kaufman burnout and is settling just shy of fat, happy and car-collecting smug (Seinfeld, Leno, Chris Tucker).
"Despicable Me" had two big things going for it - heart and humor.
There's a limit, it turns out, to how much Johnny Depp and a bucket of makeup can accomplish.
The U.N. women's agency is teaming up with actress Geena Davis to support the first global study of how women and girls are portrayed in family films, saying the images have a strong impact on how females see themselves.
"The Heat" is hot, but it was "Monsters University" who came out on top at the weekend box office.
I can't remember when, if ever, Pedro Almodovar has had as much flamboyant fun as he does in the high-flying comedy "I'm So Excited!"
In the future, all movies will be "Die Hard."
"Monsters University" scared up the No. 1 spot at the box office for the second weekend in a row, while No. 2 "The Heat" scorched the competition among new films.
Actor Jim Kelly, who played a glib American martial artist in "Enter the Dragon" with Bruce Lee, has died. He was 67.
