Current movies recommended by the Tampa Bay Times:
1. 42 -The movie about Jackie Robinson breaking pro baseball's color barrier is headed for a long run as a big hit with no errors.
2. The Place Beyond the Pines -Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper set aside their sexiest man alive rivalry for an engrossing indie drama.
3. Mud - When will the academy wake up and give Matthew McConaughey an Oscar nomination? Maybe for this performance as a charismatic hobo.
4. The Company You Keep - Robert Redford directs and stars as a former 1970s anarchist chased today by the FBI and a newspaper reporter (Shia LaBeouf).
5. Iron Man 3 - A frenetic and less fun addition to the Marvel Comics franchise. Robert Downey Jr. is still the (iron) man.
