Current movies recommended by the St. Petersburg Times:
1 Toy Story 3 - Woody, Buzz and their toy box posse return in grand style. The best movie of 2010, so far.
2 The Karate Kid - A remake surpassing the 1984 original, with Jaden Smith as charismatic as his blockbusting father, Will.
3 The A-Team -Looking for action?This ballistic take on the classic TV series is more fun than Knight and Day.
4 Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work -Who knew the crudest woman in comedy could be so insecure, or admirable? Tampa Theatre only.
5 Grown Ups -Yes, it's dumb, but Adam Sandler and his pals may be just what underwhelmed moviegoers need these days.
