for July 18
  • The Dark Knight

    Christian Bale is back as Batman
  • Mamma Mia

    Meryl Streep leads the cast in this film version of the hit Broadway musical
  • Space Chimps

    Animated kiddie movie about Ham III and his opportunity to go into space.
  • 1 .THE BANK JOB:

    In September 1971 a major heist at London’s Baker Street Bank caught the attention of the press in a big way. Based on fact, this is the story of those who robbed that bank – a set-up actually, designed to get something other than money or jewels. Photos actually … of a member of the British Royal Family caught in a most compromising position. This movie names names too … Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows star. Terrific, if somewhat profane, film! Rated 18A.

  • 2. SHUTTER:

    A barely passable horror-thriller about a pair of Americans, boyfriend and girlfriend, working in the modelling business in Tokyo – more relevant perhaps because of the recent news story of a murdered Saltspring Island girl in a similar situation. On their way from the airport, they appear to hit a female on a dark road … or not. That’s when the haunting begins, with odd images showing up on developed film. Okay for what it is, but not great. Rated 14A.


    A very lame Martin Lawrence vehicle with few funny bits and a lot of irritating behaviour. He’s a small-town police chief whose daughter (Raven Symone) is looking at choices for college … and he decides to “chaperone.” Not funny, not well-made. Rated PG.

  • Rick´s Pick: The Bank Job:

    The delight in this film, other than its fact-based roots, is that the bank robbers are actually the most innocent people in the entire movie, with the cops, the government, Interpol, and Scotland Yard all being subversive.

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974):
Different kind of heist movie, but a very good one starring Walter Matthau and Robert Shaw in a hostage-taking on a subway.
  • Hellboy II: The Golden Army

    Disappointing sequel, long of special effects, short on story and character.
  • Journey To The Center Of The Earth 3D

    Essentially a theme park ride starring Brendan Fraser. Okay for family enjoyment.
  • Meet Dave

    Silly Eddie Murphy vehicle – literally – he plays a dual role as a space ship and its commander.
