(500) Days of Summer
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel star in the quirky romantic comedy that’s neither romantic nor funny—but it’s damned quirky! Steve Martin did it better 25 years ago in The Lonely Guy, and that movie sucked. (Fox)

All About Steve
A semi-insane newspaper crossword puzzle writer (Sandra Bullock) stalks a TV news cameraman (Bradley Cooper) across the country, only to wind up trapped in a deadly mineshaft. Lesson: Media people should never date. (Fox)

District 9
Aliens live as refugees in a South African shantytown; heavy special effects and heavier apartheid allegories ensue. But, if you wade through the politics and polemics, you’ll get a big shoot-‘em-up at the end, kiddies! (Sony)

Extract
The owner of a flavor-extract company (Jason Bateman) is set to cash in and sell out when a hot con artist (Mila Kunis) and a freak workplace mishap put his retirement plans in jeopardy. Mike Judge nails morons once again. (Miramax)

It Might Get Loud
Jimmy Page, The Edge and Jack White discuss their approaches to the electric guitar, recording and dealing with dickhead lead singers. Actually, not so much with the last one; The Edge is preparing his own 16-part documentary to cover it. (Sony)
