"United 93"

****

(out of four)

By telling this thoroughly researched story with sobering respect and a realistic view of all involved, director Paul Greengrass has made a cinematic masterpiece. Rated R.

"Scary Movie 4"

**

The gags come at lightning-quick speed, lampooning every recent movie from "The Grudge" and "Saw" to "Fahrenheit 9/11" and "Brokeback Mountain." It's not the quantity of jokes that's the problem - it's the quality. Rated PG-13.

"Slither"

* 1/2

The film offers a few gems in the way of gross-out humor, but gags involving roaming tentacles and giant slugs trying to crawl into hosts' mouths just don't maintain the ability to shock in this day and age. Rated R.

"Lady Vengeance"

****

Park Chan-wook wraps up his challenging revenge trilogy with "Lady Vengeance," which follows "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance" and "Oldboy." It earns its place as one of the most gut-wrenching, unflinchingly hopeless movies I've seen. Rated R.

Movies are reviewed by News-Sentinel movie reviewer Jason Wallis every Saturday.
