for August 10
  • Daddy Day Camp

    Cuba Gooding, Jr. in a follow-up to the Eddy Murphy movie Daddy Daycare
  • Stardust

    A fantasy in which a young boy pursues a fallen star
  • Skinwalkers

    A tale of warring werewolf factions.
  • Rush Hour 3

    Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker loose in Paris
  • 1. Disturbia

    Shia LaBeouf stars in a film clearly inspired by James Stewart’s turn in Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window in 1954.  Here LaBeouf is Kale, a teen who, after the death of his father, is sullen and troubled, and ends up having to serve a prison term at home with an electronic monitoring bracelet on his ankle … he spends his days looking out the window with his binoculars … and thinks he may have seen a murder.  Good tension, and surprisingly well-done! Rated 14A.

  • 2. Are We Done Yet?

    New writer, new director, same cast, and same mean-spirited comedy – Ice Cube and Nia Long are back in the follow-up to Are We There Yet? In which the single mom of two incorrigible kids eventually hooks up with a new dad for them.  Now they have a new house that needs some renos … but it isn’t as simple as you might think!  Rated PG
  • 3. I Think I Love My Wife

    Chris Rock is totally responsible for this dreadful, profane, and downright ugly so-called romantic comedy.  There’s no romance, and precious little comedy in this Rock-written and directed mess.  He plays an ad executive with a perfect home and family life who wonders if he’s missing the boat in terms of excitement, sex, and romance.  Didn’t work for me.  Rated 14A.
  • Rick's Pick: Disturbia

    David Morse who plays the strange neighbour, wouldn’t talk with any of the teens during filming … a method actor, he remained in character throughout the shoot.

Rear Window (1954 or 1998)
Take your pick … it’s either James Stewart as the man in a wheelchair who witnesses what he believes is a murder as he looks out his window, or your can try Christopher Reeve in the same role.
  • The Bourne Ultimatum

    Matt Damon is superb in this cliff-hanging thriller which is the best of the three Bourne films.  Raw action with no CGI – it’s all the real thing.  Great film!
  • Hot Rod

    Andy Samberg leads a barely adequate case in a stunt movie that really goes nowhere.  Interesting if you live in Cloverdale where it was filmed.
  • Underdog

    Strictly kid stuff, but the talking dog with super powers is amusing!
