The right movie diet for 2010: Part IX

Director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) tries his hand at animation with Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole based on the series of children's books by Kathryn Lasky. It features the voices of Hugo Weaving, Emilie de Ravin, Helen Mirren and Geoffrey Rush in a story about a war between owls.

Director Ben Affleck returns with The Town, which is about a longtime thief trying to balance his feelings for a bank manager while dealing with the FBI agent looking to bring him down. Affleck, Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm, Jeremy Renner and Chris Cooper come together for this film.

If either of these is not your thing, try Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
