  • 1 .JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH 3D:

    Brendan Fraser is a professor with a young nephew with a taste for adventure. This very loose treatment of the Jules Verne classic was passable in theatres because of the novelty effect of the 3D … how that will play on DVD is in the eye of the beholder – but this one needs the big screen to be film worth watching … and it’s geared for a family audience, particularly kids from about 8 to 12 or 13. Rated PG.

  • 2. BEAUFORT:

    If you would like a different perspective on war in the Middle East, try this Israeli made film that looks at terror from the skies with a distinct point of view in the months before Israel pulled out of Lebanon. It’s not a tale of war, but of retreat. The movie was submitted by Israel in the Best Foreign Film category at this year’s Oscars. Rated 14A.

  • 3. HOUDINI’S DEATH-DEFYING ACTS:

    Katherine Zeta-Jones and Guy Pierce star in the British-made film that didn’t see much light in theatres here, but it’s a very serviceable drama. It’s 1926, Houdini is at the top of his game … but privately he is haunted by the fact that he was not at his mother’s side when she died. He offers a huge reward to anyone who proves they can contact the dead – specifically, Mama. Rated PG.

  • RICK’S PICK: HOUDINI’S DEATH-DEFYING ACTS:

    Perfect for Halloween as charlatans try to separate the master magician from his money. A good drama with overtones of romance … but is it real … or are these fake psychics?

Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959):
A far better film than the new one despite the lack of special effects technology. Pat Boone, James Mason, and Arlene Dahl star. Boone didn’t want to do it … but he’s happy he did as he still gets residual cheques.
  • Saw V

    Saw V actually has a story … it fills in all the blanks from previous films and leaves us wanting … yes – more!
  • High School Musical: The Movie

    A great family film that young girls especially love!
  • Pride and Glory

    A very gritty film – Colin Farrell is a bad NYPD cop who implicates his entire family. Hard to watch, but worth it – 18A rated, just so you know!
