for January 11
  • In The Name of The King

    A sword-and-sandal epic with Jason Statham
  • The Bucket List

    Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman as two men dying of cancer taking a last fling
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything

    A new Veggie tales movie.
  • 1. 3:10 to Yuma

    Russell Crowe is the bad guy here, and Christian Bale is the humble farmer-with-family who is victimized by a gang of train robbers in the old west. A remake of a 1957 western that starred Glenn Ford and Van Heflin, this classic offers the very best in the fight of good-versus-evil, and has the best movie villain in decades in the person of actor Ben Foster who plays Charlie Prince, the ultimate evil-doer. Great movie!. Rated 14A.

  • 2. Death Sentence

    A variation on the Charles Bronson movie “Death Wish” from 1975, and based on a novel by the same author, this is a lesson in urban vigilantism. Kevin Bacon is a conservative insurance company vice-president who turns to murder to protect his family. This is a gruesome, obscenely violent film that is, in some respects, a little too close to reality. Rated 18A.

  • 3. Sunshine

    If the sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey were to be remade with today’s film technology, it would look a lot like this superb film. It got into very few theatres, so most missed its original release. The story takes place on a sun-bound space ship on a mission to re-start the failing sun... the ending, like that of 2001, is somewhat ambiguous and slightly spoils what is a great visual feast and an excellent story, but I liked it all a great deal. Rated 14A.

  • Rick´s Pick: 3:10 to Yuma

    Russell Crowe is the best bad guy ever, and Christian Bale’s performance is superb. This is the near-perfect western. Tom Cruise was the original choice for the Russell Crowe part... good thing things changed!

3:10 to Yuma (1957)
Glenn Ford and Van Heflin in what is a very interesting comparison to the remake... very good in its own way.
  • One Missed Call

    A horror film that is a Japanese remake – has some good moments, but totally tanks at the end – disappointing.
  • The Orphanage

    A horror film in the vein of The Others... again, some scary moments, not bad, but wait for the DVD.
