Jersey Boys. John Lloyd Young, who starred as Frankie Valli in the original Broadway musical, cinches up his face and hits the high notes with grace in Clint Eastwood's enoyable - and surprisingly tough - music- biz biopic. Wall-to-wall Four Seasons songs, too. R

How to Train Your Dragon 2. One of the most delightful surprises of the year, this DreamWorks Animation sequel is an intelligent, sensitive, and beautifully realized morality play that will fascinate children and parents alike. Five years after he ended the war between dragons and Vikings, young hero Hiccup and his fellow dragon-riders face off against a dreaded enemy named Draco, who subjugates dragons, using fear and torture to make them do his bidding. PG

The Rover. Writer-director David Michôd's (Animal Kingdom) elegantly filmed minimalist thriller set in the not-too-distant future has Guy Pearce as an angry Australian seeking out the gang that stole the last thing on earth that mattered to him. PG-13
