  • TRANSFORMERS; REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

    Shia LaBoeuf is back to lead the shape-shifters into action
  • MY SISTERS KEEPER

    A genetically-selected and in-vitro-conceived child created to provide transplant tissues for her cancer-ridden older sister wants her life back.
  • 1. CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC:

    This delightful romantic comedy based on the best-selling book by Sophie Kinsella showcases Isla Fisher’s talents perfectly as the college grad who goes to work as an advice columnist for a business magazine, all the while wishing that she was working for the same publisher’s fashion magazine … and while working on her serious shopping addiction.  Hugh Dancy and Joan Cusak co-star.  Rated PG.

  • 2. INKHEART:

    Brendan Fraser and Helen Mirren are the stars in this uneven fantasy in which a man learns that he has the power, when reading books, to release the characters within, and bring them to life in the real world.  He can also “read” people into books who weren’t there before, which is what happens to his wife.  A medieval setting and odd characters make this at times engaging and at other times bewildering.  Good family film though.  Rated PG.    

  • 3. PINK PANTHER 2:

    Steve Martin is no Peter Sellers when it comes to playing Clouseau, but this sequel is far more faithful to the character than was the first movie with Martin as the star.  Clouseau heads a team of international detectives tasked with getting back the Pink Panther, which has been stolen along with many world art treasures.  Disappointing turn here by John Cleese, but otherwise … better than the first one!  Rated PG.

  • 4. CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC:

    Good fun, a great date movie … but hard to imagine, while watching Isla Fisher in the lead role, that in real life she is married to Sasha Baron Cohen, aka Borat.
A SHOT IN THE DARK (1964): 
Peter Sellers’ second Pink Panther movie, along with Elke Sommer.  The only Clouseau film not to have the words “Pink Panther” in the title. Co-written by a young William Peter Blatty who would go on to write and direct “The Exorcist.”
  • THE PROPOSAL

    Absolutely delightful romantic comedy with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds as boss and employee and a forced marriage of convenience.
  • YEAR ONE

    Absolutely dreadful, offensive and completely infantile Jack Black film about cavemen on the loose … sort of.  Bad, bad movie.
