THE DARJEELING LIMITED
(Comcast Movies: All Movies) Set aboard the eponymous Indian train, Wes Anderson’s diorama is about three brothers — Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzman — hatched seemingly from the same nose. The movie is another designer escapade from a director who seems happy to turn out pleasing, if indulgent, cartoons. Late in this one, something amazing does happen: The diorama tips over and spills over into life as it is lived in a small desert village. For a minute, the contours of life deepen this coloring book, and the tourist gets off his train. (R; runs through Oct. 25) WESLEY MORRIS

DRUMLINE
(Comcast Movies: All Movies) A Harlem bucket drummer (Nick Cannon) wins a scholarship to fictional Atlanta A&T University, where he plays in the percussion section of the marching band. He wins himself the head cheerleader, provokes tension, and pile drives adversity. The story is as old as the drum itself, but the setting is the first of its kind — and is so lovingly treated you think the people behind it proudly did marching band, too. (PG-13; runs through Oct. 25) WESLEY MORRIS

BRING IT ON
(Comcast Movies: All Movies) Kirsten Dunst stars in a comedy of Southern California high school cheerleading angst, squeaking her way through one crisis after another with improbable allure, aided mightily by a couple of much cooler big-city girls played by Gabrielle Union and Eliza Dushku. (PG-13; runs through Oct. 25)
