  • 1. Night at the Museum

    Ben Stiller is a screw-up single dad who can’t hold a job and who can’t get anything right.  When he signs on as a night watchman at the Museum of Natural History, things seem to be getting better – until he finds that after dark, all the exhibits come to life.  Great special effects, many of them done locally, and a family-friendly story that will keep audiences of all ages fully engaged. Rated PG.

  • 2. Deja Vu

    Denzel Washington is a tough New Orleans cop who gets involved with time travel in order to stop a major terrorist act.  Val Kilmer co-stars in a script directed by Tony Scott which spins the complex yarn in dramatic fashion.  You have to like the genre to really appreciate this film, but it works on most levels and is a bona fide action-thriller. Rated 14A.

  • 3. The Queen

    How could Helen Mirren not get an Oscar for her outstanding performance as Queen Elizabeth II in the days following the death of Princess Diana?  Her husband comes off here as a cold, snooty Royal with no understanding of the common people, and Prince Charles is actually shown as a more sympathetic character than one might expect.  Outstanding film! Rated PG.

  • Rick's Pick: The Queen

    It could have just as easily be Night at the Museum … but The Queen is an important film as much for what it does say, as what it does not.  The actual Queen reportedly has refused to see the film because it reminds her of events occurring during the worst week of her life.

Anne of the Thousand Days (1969)
Canada’s Genvieve Bujold is superb as a different kind of Royal, Anne Boleyn, ill-fated wife of Henry VIII.  Richard Burton is the king … watch for a quick scene in which a masked girl interrupts Queen Katherine’s prayers … it’s an uncredited Elizabeth Taylor.
  • Fracture

    Sir Anthony Hopkins is superb as an aeronautical engineer who shoots his wife.  But can they convict him?
  • Vacancy

    A great horror-thriller not for the squeamish with Luke Wilson and Kate Bekinsale.

  • In the Land of Women

    A young screenwriter tries to mend his broken heart after a bad break-up by going to visit his grandmother.  A touching tale of relationships and family.
