The Professional: A bit violent, but it doesn’t detract from the story which is touching.  Gary Oldman Jean Reno is an assassin and he takes in a girl (young Natalie Portman – who’s already playing that quirky oddball girl-next-door even at 13) whose family was killed by a drug gang.  He ends up taking care of her and teaching her how to do what he does.  The ending has a nice “cherry on top” feel to it.

The Golden Compass: I want my 2 hours back.

Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo: I laughed so hard at some parts, my stomach hurt.  There are a few gross and crude scenes but, what’d you expect from Harold & Kumar?  If you liked the first, you’ll like this.
