for December 14
  • Alvin and the Chipmunks

    David Seville, in the person of Jason Lee, has to control his life with Alvin, Theodore, and Simon on the loose. Digital creatures with live action... the kids will love it.
  • The Perfect Holiday

    Queen Latifah heads an All–African–American cast in a touching holiday story.
  • I am Legend

    Will Smith in a remake of a remake about the last man on earth.
  • 1. The Bourne Ultimatum

    Matt Damon is Jason Bourne once again... and this time he remembers – he remembers everything, and sets out to right the wrongs perpetrated by those who stole his identity and made him into the mystery assassin who populated the previous two movies. Excellent cast, great action, and one of the best movies of the year. Rated 14A. Also available on HD DVD.

  • 2. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    A much more grown–up Harry has his first kiss, but that doesn´t stop him from participating in some boyish pranks. Hogwarts takes an unusual turn as the ministry of magical education decides to tighten things up, and Harry leads a rebellion of sorts, all of this against a backdrop of the return of the evil Lord Voldemort. Broke the single–day box office opening for any film, previously held by Spiderman. Rated PG. Also Available on BLU–RAY HD and HD DVD.

  • 3. High School Musical 2

    A huge hit on the Family Channel in the US and Canada, the DVD contains extra scenes not included in the TV movie. It´s a tween–ager´s delight. Zac Efron and Vanessa Anne Hudgens star. Rated G. Also available on Blu–Ray DVD.

  • Rick´s Pick: The Bourne Ultimatum

    The box set of all three Bourne films is out this week as well... as for the car chases in this final one, they are spectacular... but you can´t help but notice, despite all the mayhem, there isn´t an airbag deployment anywhere.

The Bourne Identity (1988)
This TV version can be found for rental if you do a little hunting. It stars Richard Chamberlain as Jason Bourne with Jaclyn Smith as the female lead. It´s an interesting take on the Robert Ludlum story, not as dramatic as the theatrical ones, but interesting from a character development viewpoint.
  • The Golden Compass

    This is a dramatic and fantastic recreation of Philip Pullman´s controversial novel that I found confusing in the early going, not having read the books, but still, a most satisfying fantasy on par with a Harry Potter film
  • Awake

    In case you missed Awake, it´s well worth seeing – having surgery under general anesthetic, but being aware, is just the beginning of Hayden Christianson´s troubles here.
