Bandslam, a teen romantic comedy about a high school rock band, is good family-friendly fun. Vanessa Hudgens costars as an outsider who surprises her struggling musician pals when she opens her mouth to sing.

District 9, about aliens living in South Africa, is destined to become a sci-fi classic. I'm not usually into movies from another planet, but this flick is beyond awesome. You don't know any of the stars of this flick, but it doesn't matter—run out and see it now!
