IN THEATERS: OUR TOP FIVE

Current movies recommended by the Tampa Bay Times:

1. Captain Phillips - Tom Hanks stars in agripping re-creation of 2009's hijacking of a U.S. cargo ship by Somali pirates.

2. Gravity - An extraordinary sensory experience, watching an astronaut (Sandra Bullock) float helplessly in outer space. In IMAX 3-D, no less.

3. Rush - Director Ron Howard puts the pedal to the metal in a true-life Grand Prix racing drama that's thrilling from green to checkered flag.

4. Enough Said - Weirdly joyous feeling, watching the late James Gandolfini here. A truly great performance, in unexpected ways.

5. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 - Makes the list purely by default, as the lone new kid-friendly flick in theaters until November.
