  • The Incredible Hulk

    Edward Norton is oddly cast as The Hulk in a special-effects-driven action film
  • The Happening

    M. Night Shymalin (The Sixth Sense) offers up a horror thriller in which … something is happening!

    Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman are outstanding as two older men who meet in hospital where each is undergoing treatment for cancer. Nicholson’s character is wealthy and famous while Freeman’s has spent the last 45 years working under the hood of a car. They discover the concept of the Bucket List, a list of things a person wants to do before they die, and agree to use their last days pursuing the listed items. The older you are, the more you’ll appreciate this movie. Rated PG.

  • 2. JUMPER:

    Hayden Christianson (Star Wars) is a young man who discovers the ability to transport himself instantly to any place on earth … like the inside of a bank vault to help himself to a handful of cash, for instance. Samuel L. Jackson is a sort of futuristic vigilante committed to stopping such behaviour, and the chase is on. A good, solid, sci-fi premise with excellent special effects. Rated PG.


    Eric Bana is more convincing as The Incredible Hulk than he is as Henry VIII, but beyond that, this story of Royal intrigue and skulduggery as Anne Boleyn’s younger sister (Scarlett Johansson) tries to win the King’s affections for the good of the Boleyn family. Best performance in the film is that of Anna Torrent as Lady Boleyn, a convincing portrayal. Perfect for those who like an excellent period piece. Rated 14A.

  • Rick´s Pick: The Bucket List:

    Some of the hospital scenes were inspired by Jack Nicholson’s own hospital stay just prior to the start of filming. Watch for a pair of mirrored glasses – Nicholson brought them from the hospital – they’re real, although in The Bucket List they look like a comic device.

Robert Shaw is an excellent Henry VIII in this Oscar winner for the late Paul Scofield as Sir Thomas More, the man with the courage to stand up to the King. One of the great things about good period pieces is that they stand the test of time.
  • You Don't Mess with the Zohan

    Adam Sandler is an Israeli commando now living undercover as a hairdresser in NYC. Crude in some respects, but it has as a surprisingly relevant story with a good outlook on Israeli – Arab relations
  • Kung Fu Panda

    Outstanding animated feature from Dreamworks in which Po the Panda (voice of Jack Black) struggles to fulfill his destiny in ancient China.
