  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows:

    The story starts with the Turtles still in the shadows, with no one aware of the fact that they are the quartet that took down the supremely evil Shredder.  The quiet in the city doesn’t last long … interdimensional travel is on the docket here, and soon, the worst villain of all time, Krang, has Shredder in his employ, and Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael have to step up to stop a bigger threat to the world order than anyone has seen before.  In addition to the CGI Turtles, we have Megan Fox and Will Arnett in the cast, as well as Tyler Perry as a villain, an unusual role for him.  Steven Amell, who plays “Arrow” on television, is Casey Jones, one of the decided human good guys here.  Turtles fans will be quite happy with this!  Rated 14A.

  • Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising:

    A sequel to Seth Rogan’s R-rated “Neighbors,” this one features the Radners, Mac and Kelly, still living in the house next to the one-time frat house of the first movie, and facing a much bigger crisis.  They need to sell to move on to a bigger home as their family expands, but getting someone to buy the property after a sorority takes over next door, creates a far bigger problem than existed when the boys occupied the premises.  Dave Franco’s character, Pete, returns in this instalment, but he is no match for frat girl Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz).  Rogan co-wrote the script, and although there are few funny and gross-out moments, the movie, based on the box office, and reviews from those who were fans of the first one, just doesn’t measure up.  Rated 18A.

  • Free State of Jones:

    Matthew MacConaughey stars as the title character, the real-life Newton Knight who deserted the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and returned home to Mississippi to lead an insurrection against the corrupt Confederate government of the region.  Using a militia consisting of slaves, women, and farmers, Knight set up, for a brief time, what was a sovereign state-within-the-state.  Jones County was not the only area to go rogue in this fashion – there were several others but this one was the model for the genre.  If you are a significant Civil War fan, or if you are hooked on MacConaughey, this will work for you … otherwise,  a bit of a dull go.  Keri Russell also stars. Rated 14A.

  • 45 Years (2015):

    Charlotte Rampling received a Best Actress nomination at this year's Oscars for her portrayal of Kate Mercer, wife of Geoff (Tom Courtney) for 45 years.  As the childless couple prepares to celebrate its 45th anniversary, an event occurs that changes everything, forcing them to look at their relationship of almost a half-century, and determine its true worth.  I know what you're thinking ... someone knocks on the door and it turns out to be a long-lost child, born out of wedlock, and now having found its mother or its father.  Not even close ... you won't guess what the event is, but it will shock you in a quiet sort of way. Rated 14A.

Escape Plan (2013):

This taut thriller features Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) as the world's foremost authority on escape--proofing maximum security prisons where the worst of the worst are incarcerated.  He agrees to go into the latest version of a foolproof jail as a consultant, to find and point out the flaws that might exist.  Surprise for Ray once he is locked up - he designed this prison himself - and those responsible for this frame-up want to keep him there, and nobody else knows that he's even inside.  His only chance seems to be in getting help from Rottmeyer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who could possibly be motivated to help - for a price.  An excellent thriller!  Rated 14A.
