    Dakota Fanning and Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson in a family drama in the deep south

    He’s older, he’s wiser, but he’s still the one to call when there’s trouble. Harrison Ford is back as Indy along with an outstanding villain in the person of Cate Blanchett, and a young sidekick, Mutt Williams played by Shia LaBoeuf. What are the Crystal Skulls? What secrets do they hold? And why are the Russians so interested. Set at the height of the Cold War in the 50s, this stuff just never gets old. Rated PG.

  • 2. WAR INC. :

    A film that didn’t find its way into many theatres, it’s still a good suspense/action thriller with John Cusak, Ben Kingsley, and Dan Ackroyd. Set in the near future when wars are run by private corporations, in this case, by a company headed by a former president, Cusak plays a hired gun, a hitman brought in to set things right … until, of course, he meets Her – played by Marisa Tomei. Rated 14A.

  • 3. MONGOL:

    An Oscar-nominated foreign film from Kazakhstan that recounts the early life of Genghis Khan is spectacular on two levels – one is the story itself, but the other is the setting … it was filmed in the very area in which the great conqueror grew up – some places so remote that the film crews had to build their own roads into the area. Cast of thousands, all real people, real horses, not special effects. Rated 14A.


    Harrison Ford was 64 when he made this movie, spent three hours a day in the gym for six months in preparation, and did all of his own stunts.

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981):
Placing this movie side-by-side with the latest one is an interesting exercise … they look like they were made at the same time. Watch the encounter between Indy and the cobra … that’s a real snake, and it spits real venom – it’s not computer-generated … a pain of glass separates Indy from the snake, but you can’t tell that on film.
