Theaters are offering moviegoers plenty of choices in a variety of genres from historical dramas to sci-fi and comedy.

Movie theaters are seeing an increase in attendance this month as popular films are being released. This week has been no exception. Fans have the opportunity to watch a 'Zombieland' sequel, a new take on Batman's biggest villain and Hollywood's latest take on police and African American relations. This list may cause some controversy, after deciding against including "Joker." I kept "Joker" off this list, because while it had a great story and acting, the film was not a true Joker film, it was more of an origin story for the popular villain. A sequel could make it better and we were unable to see Joker actually become Gotham's biggest villain. I would have preferred to see Joker take a deadlier tone.

'Black and Blue'

'Black and Blue' stars Naomie Harris who plays a rookie police officer who witnesses dirty cops and is forced to go on the run and survive the night in hopes of exposing the dirty cops. The film took a gritty and serious take on the issue of African-American relations with the police. Thanks to its incredible acting, writing and cinematography, "Black and Blue" is one of the best film in theaters right now.
