  • THE HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT

  • 1. QUANTUM OF SOLACE:

    Daniel Craig is back as James Bond for his second go-round, and for me, I thought this was a good movie … I just didn’t think it was a good James Bond movie.  The villain this time is Dominic Greene, and his treachery has an environmental twist.  A hint – since the action in this film picks up just hours after Casino Royale, the previous Bond movie ends, you may well want to rent both and watch them as a double feature to keep the action in the new movie straight.  Rated 14A.

  • 2. BOLT:

    Animated, a thoroughly engaging “road movie” with John Travolta as the voice of Bolt the Wonder Dog who is the star of his own TV series.  What Bolt doesn’t know is that he has a whole bunch of stunt men and women, and a lot of special effects that allow him to fight crime – his handlers keep him isolated so that he believes it’s all real.  When Bolt is accidentally released into the real world and has to cross the country in search of hearth and home, everything changes.  Great characters and an excellent story. Rated PG.  

  • 3. TWILIGHT:

    A teenage girl (Kristin Stewart) who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula falls for a handsome young man at school (Robert Pattinson) who at first seems repelled by her.  What’s different about him?  Well, he’s a vampire for starters.  An excellent film for those who like the genre.  The sequel is in production on the Lower Mainland right now.  Rated 14A.

  • 4. TWILIGHT:

    Another tough choice here.  Any one of these could be the pick of the week, but I’ll go with the Vampires – just the mood I’m in right now.  Watch the restaurant scene where Charlie asks Bella if she likes the boys in town … you’ll see a woman by a laptop ordering a vegetarian sandwich … that’s Stephanie Meyer who wrote the Twilight series of books in a cameo.
DRACULA (1979):
