The sight of Jessica Alba on the cast list is usually enough to make the average viewer cringe. Her notoriously shallow roles, coupled with stunning looks, brand her as one of Hollywood's most consistently scrutinized actresses.

Directors David Moreau and Xavier Palud have conceived a balanced storyline with appropriate volumes of trepidation and laudable acting.
A giant monster materializes out of nowhere to terrorize the Manhattan population. Hasn't this movie been released before? It sounds so awfully familiar - think it was called "Godzilla."

With his friends' lives constantly on the line, the Ministry of Magic doubting his story about You-Know-Who's return and the wizarding world on the brink of war, will Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) be able to handle the pressure, along with the angst, romance and bullying in any teenager's life? "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," the fifth installment of J.K. Rowling's magical series, is sure to dazzle the eyes at the cinemas.

During the high school years, not a single student has gone by without envisioning his or her college experience. And most students get into at least one college (some better some worse, but at least they get in). Then what happens when a student doesn't get into college?
