Current movies recommended by the St. Petersburg Times:
1 Fast Five - Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson butt bald heads in a fast and furious popcorn flick.
2 Everything Must Go - Will Ferrell is better in a dramatic role than he's been lately in comedies.
3 Rio - An animated delight, with birds of a funny feather flocking together in Rio de Janeiro.
4 Jumping the Broom - St. Petersburg's Angela Bassett and Loretta Devine shine in a culture-clash comedy of premarital errors.
5 Thor - Bang, bang Marvel's silver hammer. Not Iron Man but not bad. Bring on The Avengers.
