June has been a bittersweet month for 21-year-old Jay Hernandez. He should have been celebrating the launch of his first film, Touchstone's "crazy/beautiful," which opens Friday nationwide. After all, it was only a few years ago that Hernandez was attending a community college in Walnut, broke and without a car. Now he's making million-dollar deals to star in movies.

One runner bounds around the track with the long, graceful strides of a gazelle. The other propels himself with a short, powerful stride and the tenacity of a bulldog. Ramsey Jay of Ventura High and Eleazar Hernandez of Camarillo are at opposite ends of the locomotion spectrum, but both posted impressive victories in the inaugural Channel Coast Invitational on Saturday. Jay, who finished fourth in the 400 meters in last year's State championships, won the 200 in 21.8 seconds, the 400 in 48.

The recovered-video genre of horror ("The Blair Witch Project," "Cloverfield") may still have legs, but if "Quarantine" is any indication, they're wobbling. The movie is based on the acclaimed Spanish film "[REC]" (unseen by this reviewer) and apparently hews quite closely to the original's plot except for the new film's far-less-interesting explanation of the deadly quandary.

"Crazy/beautiful" is a film that dares to ask the tough questions. Can a poor boy from the wrong side of the tracks find happiness with a spoiled rich kid gagging on her silver spoon? Can a studious guy from Boyle Heights find love with a baby stoner from Pacific Palisades? Can . . . you get the idea.

The paramedics had to be called twice during the screening of Eli Roth's latest R-rated horror film, "Hostel," at the Toronto Film Festival last September. "I told everyone this is a sick movie," Roth said. "I told them, 'I am not making a movie for everyone.' Some guy walked out halfway through, fainted and fell down the escalator. A few minutes later a woman left saying she was having a heart attack!"

"Nomad: The Warrior" is a throwback to those elaborate but stultifying international productions of several decades ago. This sweeping tale of the mythological unification of Kazakhstan has great scenery, sets and costumes, but writer-producer Rustam Ibragimbekov 's script lacks originality. The direction by Sergei Bodrov and the eminent Czech veteran Ivan Passer is similarly by the book. Not even the action sequences have much punch.

It could be eye-opening to have film students construct a script entirely around the cautionary warnings assigned by the MPAA ratings board. Eyes are opened (and then some) in Eli Roth's latest carnival of dismemberment, "Hostel," which seems to have been tailored to its designated R "for brutal scenes of torture and violence, strong sexual content, language and drug use." Class, how can we fulfill the requirements of this something-for-everyone menu? Draw from your own life, if it helps.

The Chicago-based Puerto Rican Christmas picture "Nothing Like the Holidays," if you are a sentient being on this planet, should strike you as crushingly familiar. Done before, done last week, done every year, it's the latest holiday film about a varied, dysfunctional everyday family that comes together at Christmas, lugging a 12-car pileup of anxieties, then tidying up every one, in a warm red bow, within 98 minutes.
