Current movies recommended by the St. Petersburg Times:
1 District 9 - Marooned aliens become allegories for apartheid segregation in director Neill Blomkamp's dazzling debut.
2 Inglourious Basterds - Quentin Tarantino puts his imprint on the war movie genre, sometimes smudged but always fascinating.
3 The Final Destination- St. Petersburg native Bobby Campo ... in 3-D! What's not to like?
4 All About Steve - Sandra Bullock is a sexy stalker who is anything but normal. And that's refreshing.
5 Extract - Fans of Mike Judge's Office Space will go nuts for Jason Bateman as desperate factory owner whose marriage and business are teetering on chaos.
