The Twilight Saga: New Moon Constrained by the plot of the novel, this sequel keeps teen lovers Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson apart for quite a spell, robbing the project of the crazy-in-love energy that made "Twilight," the first entry in the series, such a guilty pleasure. (K.Tu., Nov. 19) (2:10) PG-13.

Where The Wild Things Are In the new version of Maurice Sendak's brief but classic children's book, more -- admired director Spike Jonze, smart co-screenwriter Dave Eggers, top-flight actors including Chris Cooper, James Gandolfini and Forest Whitaker and a budget estimated at $80 million to $100 million dollars -- has paradoxically become less: a precious, self-indulgent cinematic fable that not everyone is not going to love. (K.Tu., Oct. 16) (1:34) PG.

Zombieland The horror-comedy is not your average gore-nucopia. There are plenty of exploding heads, sure, but while there are a number of gross-outs and jolts in it, "Zombieland" is mostly about character-based laughs. Jesse Eisenberg does his wimpy shtick (imagine a young Woody Allen fumbling for a shotgun), Emma Stone is saucy, and Abigail Breslin is killer-cute as her rifle-toting little sister. But no one looks to be enjoying the ride more than Woody Harrelson as a zombie slayer with a Twinkie fetish. (Michael Ordoña, Oct. 2) (1:21) R.
