By Jay Bobbin © Zap2it RANGO: All sorts of Old West conventions and cliches get sent up in this often clever animated parody that reteams Johnny Depp with Gore Verbinski, his director on the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Rango is a literal chameleon who ends up in a town in need of a savior, boosting him into the role of unlikely hero. The voice cast also includes Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Abigail Breslin, Ned Beatty, Harry Dean Stanton and Timothy Olyphant. (Rated PG)
ARTHUR: Russell Brand replaces Dudley Moore in this remake of the 1981 comedy ... but really, who could ever replace Moore? That’s much of the problem here, as Brand tries to assume the title role of a boozy heir even more reluctant to go through with an arranged marriage when he meets the woman of his dreams. Helen Mirren is more credible in succeeding John Gielgud as Arthur’s guardian. Jennifer Garner plays Arthur’s would-be bride, with Nick Nolte as her rich and stubborn father. (Rated PG-13)
THE LINCOLN LAWYER: Early on, Matthew McConaughey established himself with impressive roles such as the lawyer in A Time to Kill. He gets back to that profession, and that energy, in this smartly paced drama about a case that restores a sense of purpose to the attorney in question. His representing a rich playboy seems an easy matter at first, but it turns into much more. Based on Michael Connelly’s novel, the film also features Marisa Tomei, William H. Macy, Josh Lucas and John Leguizamo. (Rated R)
INSIDIOUS: Sinister spirits invade the new home of a couple — played by Patrick Wilson (who becomes a television star this fall in CBS’ A Gifted Man and Rose Byrne (Damages) — but the source of the scares is surprising in this thriller, which made an impressive box-office showing on a small budget.

Two veterans of the Saw franchise, director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell — who’s a co-star here as well — worked on the film that also features Barbara Hershey (Black Swan). (Rated PG-13)
