for February 1
  • The Eye

    Jessica Alba in a supernatural thriller about what you see after a corneal transplant.
  • Over Her Dead Body

    Romantic comedy of sorts about a guy who loses his wife-to-be on their wedding day... and finds that she literally haunts his next relationship.
  • 1. The Invasion

    Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig star in a lackluster body-snatchers clone that has all the intensity of overdone spaghetti hanging limply from a fork. Invasion of the Body Snatchers was originally serialized in Colliers Magazine in the ‘50s, became movie in ’56 and again in ’78. We didn’t need another. This time it’s a virus that invades the body and takes it over during REM sleep. No more pods, and a pretty sleepy film. It had a major re-shoot after completion – didn’t help! Rated PG. Also available on Blu-Ray and HDDVD.

  • 2. Lake Placid 2

    Made for American cable, this is a sequel to the made-in-Vancouver Lake Placid with Betty White and a giant crocodile that chomps everyone in sight. This time it’s made-in-Bulgaria and Cloris Leachman is in the Betty White-style role. The crocodile is still pretty cheesy. John Schneider also stars. For fans of the genre only. Rated 14A.

  • 3. Bordertown

    Good cast that includes Jennifer Lopez, Martin Sheen, and Antonio Banderas. Lopez is an ambitious reporter assigned to a story in Juarez, Mexico, following the disappearance of dozens of women. She partners up with her former editor and uncovers the biggest story of the year. Didn’t make it into most theatres, but a pretty good, if somewhat predictable story. Rated 14A.

  • Rick´s Pick: Bordertown

    For the most part, I would watch Antonio Banderas do almost anything. He’s solid here as the newspaper editor. A worthwhile rental.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
The special effects of the day weren’t much, but the story here is far more gripping and compelling than that of the recent remake. Kevin McCarthy appears in all three films.
  • Untraceable

    Diane Lane is fine as an FBI agent who tracks internet crime. People are being murdered online – the more that log on, the faster and more brutal the death. Tastefully done if you can imagine!
  • Rambo

    Sly Stallone delivers exactly what you would expect. Fine action!
  • Meet the Spartans

    Simply terrible parody of 300.
