Reviews of the latest movies in stores, including ''The Artist,'' ''Mirror Mirror,'' and more

The Artist (2011, PG-13)

Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo, Uggie the dog An aging star of silent film feels threatened by the dawn of talkies in this charming homage to Old Hollywood that is, in fact, a French production. In case you forgot, it won a bunch of Oscars, including Best Actor (for Dujardin) and Best Picture. (Also on iTunes) A-

Wrath of the Titans (2012, PG-13)

Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes For a movie that’s basically all warmed-over pseudo-mythology, the sword-and-sandal sequel manages to serve up a few moments of dumb fun. (Also on iTunes) B-

A Thousand Words (2012, PG-13)

Eddie Murphy, Kerry Washington Murphy is strenuously unfunny in a painfully high-concept comedy about a motormouthed literary agent hit with a curse that forces him to shut up. (Also on iTunes) D-

Mirror Mirror (2012, PG)

Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Lily Collins Roberts enjoys herself immensely as Snow White’s queenly evil stepmother, but the rest is a dull and unbewitching movie. The jokey postmodern sensibility falls flat, and director Tarsem Singh has a curiously unemotional approach. C

Coming Soon
Under the Tuscan Sun (2003, PG-13)

Diane Lane, Sandra Oh Lane is a lovely American expat in this romantic comedy making its Blu-ray debut. C+ 7/3

The Three Stooges (2012, PG)

Sean Hayes, Sofia Vergara The Farrelly brothers’ update of the classic trio of nyuk-nyuk-nyukers is a loopy, fluky good time. A- 7/17
