In which staffer Mark Krotov gives movie suggestions for those who fear to venture off the 1, 2, and 3 lines.

AMC Loews 84th Street 6

84th and Broadway

ATL
A movie about my hometown featuring Big Boi and T.I. Being from Atlanta just got a little cooler, although, unfortunately, I can’t relate to the movie’s competitive roller-skating subplot.

Stay Alive
Frankie Muniz makes his horror debut in a film that also stars “Hebrew Hammer” Adam Goldberg. The movie may be scary, but still not as scary as the thought that Frankie Muniz collects cars. And drives them.

V for Vendetta
Natalie Portman gets her head shaved? The future truly is a scary, dystopian place.

The Shaggy Dog
The producers of Scooby Doo 3 must be very upset right now.

Lincoln Plaza Cinemas

Broadway between 62nd and 63rd

The Beauty Academy of Kabul
Screw infrastructure; what Afghanistan really needs is a Western-style beauty salon!

Iron Island
Iran’s Arab minority lives on oil tanker. Hijinks ensue.

Don’t Come Knocking
The best road trip film with social commentary about American society since Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle.

The Child (L’Enfant)
A movie with no soundtrack and hand-held cameras about a young father that sells his newborn baby? I’m guessing that this probably won’t make it to the Liberty Film Festival.

Caché
Tsotsi

AMC Loews Lincoln Square 12

68th and Broadway

Basic Instinct 2
Remember how this was supposed to be trashy, campy, and full of nudity? Apparently, they got 2 of the 3 right. Peace activist Sharon Stone stars.

Ice Age: The Meltdown
If you like the sound of Ray Romano whining in computer-generated-animal form, this movie is definitely for you. Also, while the title is perfect, what will the third movie be called? Refreeze? After the Defrost?

Slither
Weird creatures crawl into people’s mouths. Sometimes, “high-concept” is a misnomer.

Inside Man
An absolutely fantastic film, with a perfect blend of Spike Lee’s righteous anger, a heist movie’s inherent coolness, and Clive Owen’s undeniable hotness.

She’s the Man
The only thing that you need to know about this movie is that it has a castmember named “Channing Tatum.” If you’re still down after that, please go forth.

Thank You for Smoking
See Katie Holmes in her last film before she starts making Scientology infomercials.
