When deciding which movie to go see in theaters, some weekends it’s best to just pull a name out of a hat. According to members of our Criticwire Network, you have plenty of solid options this week. The upcoming quintet of new releases hitting theaters in the days to come all have averages of a B- or higher. But, although one of the five has garnered an unbelievable amount of attention for its advance notices -- that would be a scrawny little movie called "The Dark Knight Rises" -- it’s another film about a troubled billionaire that has earned our overall top spot: With a B+ average, the Sundance documentary “The Queen of Versailles” is our Criticwire Pick of the week.
