  • LAW ABIDING CITIZEN

  • THE STEPFATHER

    A horror-thriller with Dylan Walsh and Sela Ward with a new stepdad who is not what he appears to be.
  • 1. THE PROPOSAL:

    Best rom-com of the year, Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are outstanding as a hard-bitten female New York publishing executive and her mild-mannered assistant.  The hook:  turns out that she’s actually Canadian, and that she’s going to be deported and lose her big-time job … unless … she marries an American.  In her quest to make it so, we meet a great array of characters in his family headed up by Betty White as the family matriarch.  Great fun, and Vancouver native Reynolds’ break out mainstream film. Rated PG.

  • 2. LAND OF THE LOST:

    Will Farrell is just a waste of skin in this remake of a 70s Saturday morning TV series about time travel to a prehistoric past.  Can’t decide if it’s supposed to be a comedy, and action-adventure, a kiddie film, or none of the above.  Doesn’t work on any level – not even with the pretty-good-dinosaur-special effects.  Anne Friel form “Pushing Daisies is a delight, but wasted in a poor film.  Rated PG.   

  • 3. DRAG ME TO HELL:

    One of the best modern horror thrillers in a decade, Allison Lohman is convincing as an ambitious bank employee who chooses to foreclose on a mortgage for personal corporate gain rather than show compassion to the old woman begging to keep her home.  She gets cursed, and is in for a world of hurt.  Rated 14A.

  • 4. THE PROPOSAL:

    Although much of it takes place in the mountainous regions of Alaska, the entire movie was shot in the Boston area with the mountains added in digitally.

WES CRAVEN’S THEY (2002): 

As we approach Halloween, we want to know what scares us … this one, about a woman who, as a child, had a terrible traumatic experience, shows why it’s very, very wise to be afraid of the dark. One of the all-time chilling endings!!

  • COUPLES RETREAT 

    Vince Vaughn co-wrote and Peter Billingsley directed this tale of four couples who end up, mistakenly, at a resort to work on their marriages … they thought they were there for the snorkeling and the jet skis.  Good fun, lots of laughs in this rom-com.
