Let’s face it.  Not everyone can handle Bruno in theaters.  You cringed through Borat, and Sacha Baron Cohen’s character “Bruno” seemed even more awkward so you decided to wait for the day it would grace the shelves at Movie Gallery.  Well, comedy patrons, that day is here.

And don’t forget Star TrekRotten Tomatoes rarely gives a rating over 80, but this sci-fi thriller earned an outstanding 95%!

If you aren’t into political incorrectness and don’t identify yourself as a Trekkie, there are plenty of other films making their way to stores today.  Here are a few (and as always, synopsis courtesy of rottentomatoes.com):

Star Trek, PG-13: Those prepared to hate the reboot of STAR TREK–whether they’re die hard fans or those in the anti-sci-fi camp–may be convinced to lower their shields after seeing this fun, action-filled film.

Bruno, R:  After BORAT took over America in 2006, another Sacha Baron Cohen creation arrives on the big screen. In BRUNO, the gay Austrian model of the title brings his antics to the States.

Downhill Racer, N/R: Director Michael Ritchie makes his feature film debut with DOWNHILL RACER, an adrenaline-soaked sports drama that features another alluring performance from Robert Redford.

Evilution, N/R: When the U.S. Army attempts to turn a microscopic extraterrestrial organism into a powerful military weapon, they inadvertently unleash an apocalyptic hell on Earth.

Food Beware: The French Organic Revolution, N/R: For the first time ever, our children are growing up less healthy than their parents. As the rate of cancer and childhood obesity climbs ever upward each year, we must ask ourselves, why is this happening? What can we do to save our children…

How to Be, N/R: TWILIGHT’s Robert Pattinson trades in the pale skin and vampire teeth of Edward Cullen for the guitar and life crisis of Art in this British dramedy.

Is Anybody There?, PG-13: Growing up and growing old never played so poignantly as it does in John Crowley’s IS ANYBODY THERE? The film grapples with the sad truths of getting older and losing loved ones, all the while maintaining a sardonic wit and sincere warmth.

Limits of Control, R: In spite of the title, THE LIMITS OF CONTROL constantly reveals the controlling hand of its creator, the indie icon Jim Jarmusch.

My One and Only, PG-13: The tires of a baby-blue ’53 Cadillac Coupe de Ville convertible squeal down the New York street, and none of its occupants looks back.

My Sister’s Keeper, PG-13: THE NOTEBOOK’s Nick Cassavetes directs another tearjerking literary adaptation with this drama based on Jodi Picoult’s novel.

Shout at the Devil, N/R: An American, with the help of an upper-class Englishman who’s looking for adventure, hopes to get rich via smuggling and land speculation in Africa.
