for November 2
  • American Gangster

    Denzil Washington is a real–life crime kingpin in New York.
  • Bee Movie

    Jerry Seinfeld wrote and voices this animated feature about living the hive life.
  • Martian Child

    John Cusak in a quirky story about a boy who may or may not be an extraterrestrial.
  • 1. Spider–Man 3

    Not one, not two, but three new villains in this over–the–top three–quel, along with some of the best special effects ever done for the character of The Sandman. Great action, a complex story that some said was too convoluted, and a couple of very goofy scenes where Peter Parker walks down Broadway reminiscent of Saturday Night Fever, trying to do the Travolta swagger. We could do without that whole storyline, but the rest is super! Rated 14A.

  • 2. License to Wed

    Robin Williams is wasted here as is the entire case in a so–called comedy about a minister who insists on a bizarre pre–marital course for members of his congregation. Not much makes sense, it isn´t funny, and it´s mean–spirited. Williams as Reverend Frank isn´t believable, Mandy Moore as the bride–to–be is too sweet, and John Krasinski as the groom is just a bystander. Worth a rental? Depends how desperate you might be. Rated 14A.

  • 3. In the Land of Women

    An odd, but very gentle romance with a very different twist. Adam Brody plays a low–budget Hollywood scriptwriter who gets dumped by his actress girlfriend and decides to drop out and go spend some time with his aging grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) where the young woman across the street takes a shine to him... but it´s really her mother (Meg Ryan) who captures his heart... but not the way you think. Nice movie! Rated PG.

  • Rick´s Pick: In the Land of Women

    I know it´s supposed to be Spider–Man 3, a film that had the biggest two–day opening ever in the history of movies... But this kind, offbeat little movie... moved me!

Inner Space (1987)
20 years ago Meg Ryan hadn´t had the collagen injections in her lips nor the botox in her forehead... she stars here with Dennis Quaid in a delightfully loopy fantasy about a pilot who is miniaturized and injected into a human bloodstream.
  • Dan in Real Life

    Steve Carrell is excellent as the sad widower Dan who falls for the wrong woman at the wrong time.
  • Saw IV

    More plot, mores backstory, and more confusion than in the previous three Saws... but it´s a must–see for fans of the genre.
