Current movies recommended by the St. Petersburg Times:
1. Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - Steve Carell and Keira Knightley take a wise, witty road trip to extinction.
2. Prometheus -Director Ridley Scott's impressive return to science fiction filmmaking is more than just a prequel to Alien.
3. Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted - The pick of the franchise's litter, a three-ring circus of sharp gags, funny voices and dazzling 3-D.
4. Brave - Not Pixar's best work by a longshot but beautifully animated and girl-powered.
5. Rock of Ages - Adam Shankman's version of the 1980s jukebox musical could use a bit more Hairspray but Tom Cruise rocks.
