Today's New in Theaters- 3/12/10

Green Zone: Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon's collaboration on the last two Bourne movies led to some of the best action filmmaking of the last decade, so yes, I'm teenage-girl excited about their latest picture, a fictionalized look at deception in the early days of the Iraq War. Roger Ebert gives it four stars and calls it "one hell of a thriller."

Remember Me: The bulk of the press this week about this "poor kids in love" movie hasn't been about the quality of the film, or the first big non-Twilight turn by Robert Pattinson, but the big shocker ending. I'm not seeing the movie, so I read the items about the ending, and I gotta say, it strikes me as incredibly exploitative, but what the hell, nobody asked me. Orndorf says it's a renter.

She's Out of My League: Hey, it's a comedy about a goofy dork who dates a hot girl. CAN YOU IMAGINE SUCH A THING?

Severe Clear: There's some awfully good footage in this first-person account of the early days of the Iraq war (hey wait, that's the second time I've used that phrase in this entry. COINCIDENCE?). But it also comes on the heels of scores of Iraq documentaries, and doesn't really add much new to the conversation.
