Once you see Ernest and Celestine (opening today), you will understand why this French-Belgium animated beauty was nominated for Best Animated Feature at this year's Academy Awards. You may also wonder why it didn't win. A simple, clever, classic tale of friendship and tolerance, it just feels invigorating to experience a family-friendly work of animation not churned out by Disney or one of the other big Hollywood studios.

Johnny Depp stars as Will Caster, a leading artificial intelligence researcher in the heady, new science fiction thriller, Transcendence (opening today). It's a film with a quite interesting premise that feels badly undercooked. The first half of the film is slow and clunky but its major flaw is that it betrays the golden rule of science fiction: You must set rules within your world and all of what happens must make sense within those rules. Transcendence does not play by the rules, and in this case, that's a very bad thing.
