The Projector: Movies opening Friday, Dec. 18 

Avatar—James Cameron (Aliens, Titanic) is back as both director and writer of this graphically gorgeous, 3D sci-fi flick. Paraplegic war vet Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) is sent to the planet Pandora to make contact with the planet's natives, the Na'vi, through an avatar. Hopefully his avatar can also help stem the rising conflict between the humans and the Na'vi. Critics are calling this one "jaw-dropping," "mind-blowing" and "the most dazzling film of the decade," ... and they aren't just talking about the $400 million price tag. (PG-13) Edwards 9, 22

Did You Hear About The Morgans?—Paul (Hugh Grant) and Meryl Morgan's (Sarah Jessica Parker) marriage is on the rocks and divorce is looming. But in a classic big-city-folks-head-to-a-small-town-to-learn-the-important-things-in-life twist, the two witness a murder and are forced to enter the witness protection program in rural Wyoming. Will the simple life bring them back together? (PG-13) Flicks

Me And Orson Welles—Richard Linklater's latest film follows teenager Richard Samuels (Zac Efron) as he's thrust into the role of Lucius in Orson Welles' (Christian McKay) production of Julius Caesar. Set in 1937 New York, the film chronicles Samuels' experience at the newly opened Mercury Theatre and his budding love for production assistant Sonja Jones (Claire Danes). (R) Flicks

Precious: Based On The Novel "Push" By Sapphire—(Presented by Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey) Newcomer Gabby Sidibe stars as Precious Jones, an overweight, illiterate teen who suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her mother and is pregnant—for the second time—by her father. When she enrolls in an alternative school, Ms. Rain (Paula Patton) shows her that though "life is hard, life is short and life is painful, life is rich. And life is precious." Also stars Mo'Nique and Mariah Carey. (R) Flicks
