NOW PLAYING

"Angels and Demons" (PG-13). Tom Hanks returns for this sequel to "The Da Vinci Code," in which the papal succession plot plunges into preposterous twists. Among the many things to wonder about is how the Hanks character can be an expert on Vatican history and yet be unable to read either Italian or Latin. The frantic story does hold your attention, though, and there are effective supporting performances by Ewan McGregor, Stellan Skarsgard and Armin Mueller-Stahl. Grade: B- TownMall Cinemas (12:30, 6:30)

"Drag Me to Hell" (PG-13). Alison Lohman plays a bank loan officer who authorizes the eviction of a gypsy widow from her home, prompting a supernatural curse; and Justin Long plays the bank employee's bewildered boyfriend. Director Sam Raimi ("The Evil Dead," "Spider-Man") deftly mixes screams and laughs in this very enjoyable horror movie. Grade: B TownMall Cinemas (1:45, 4:45, 7:40, 10:10)

"The Hangover" (R). When several young men hit Las Vegas, crude comedy is sure to ensue. There's no shortage of wild activity, but moviegoers who aren't left laughing are likely to feel like they've got a hangover by the end. Grade: C TownMall Cinemas (12:15, 2:40, 5:10, 7:50, 10:15), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (1:00, 4:00, 7:05, 9:35)

"Imagine That" (PG). Not reviewed. Eddie Murphy stars in this family comedy as a financial executive who finds solace in his daughter's imaginary world. TownMall Cinemas (1:10, 4:10, 7:10, 9:45)

"Land of the Lost" (PG-13). Will Ferrell stars in this deliberately dumb adaptation of the '70s TV show about time travel bringing humans and dinosaurs together. It's entertaining, but strains to keep the story going at feature length. Grade: B- TownMall Cinemas (12:50, 3:50, 6:50, 9:30), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (1:25, 4:10, 7:10, 9:40)

"Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian" (PG). Ben Stiller is a former museum guard in this sequel, but he still cares about his beloved museum display figures. When the figures are transferred from New York's Museum of Natural History to deep storage at Washington's Smithsonian Institution, he takes action to liberate them. The special effects-laden story is slight, but the non-stop action and pop culture jokes will entertain young audiences. Grade: B TownMall Cinemas (12:40, 3:40, 6:40, 9:15), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (1:15, 4:15, 7:00, 9:15)

"Star Trek" (PG-13). The vintage franchise is rebooted in a sleekly paced, emotionally satisfying story about the earliest days of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Chris Pine as Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock are among the young actors bringing this old series to new life; only Leonard Nimoy in a supporting role as "Spock Prime" serves as a reminder of the original acting crew. Grade: B TownMall Cinemas (1:00, 4:00, 7:00, 9:50), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (3:55, 9:30)

"The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3" (R). Effective remake of the 1974 urban thriller about bad guys taking over a New York subway train and holding passengers hostage. Director Tony Scott's slick filmmaking keeps the story moving, but it's superficial and has some plot holes. Grade: B TownMall Cinemas (1:30, 4:30, 7:20, 10:00), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (1:05, 4:05, 6:45, 9:25)

"Terminator Salvation" (PG-13). Humans, machines and combinations of the two are kept busy in this time-hopping, combat-filled sci fi sequel. It's frantic and noisy in the summer movie tradition. With Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Helena Bonham Carter and Jane Alexander. Grade: C+ TownMall Cinemas (3:30, 9:40), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (1:20, 6:55)

"Up" (PG). This smile-inducing Pixar animated movie features an elderly balloon salesman (voiced by Ed Asner) whose lifelong dream of going to South America is complicated when a young scout becomes a stowaway for the trip. Although the story becomes more conventional as it goes along, the main characters remain endearing and the terse running time keeps everything in the air. Grade: B TownMall Cinemas (12:00, 2:30, 5:00, 7:30, 9:55), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (1:10, 4:20, 6:50, 9:20)
