1. ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS:
All the usual suspects are back including Manny the Mammoth (voice of Ray Romano), Ellie the Mammoth (Queen Latifa) and of course, Scrat, and a new female friend, Scratte. This time the herd delves into a hidden underground world where dinosaurs still prevail, and Sid the Sloth become a surrogate parent to a brood of little T-Rex babies. Good fun for kids and adults! Rated G.
The premise seems fairly standard for the horror/drama genre, but there’s an interesting twist along the way that changes all of that. A childless couple adopt an artistic 11 year-old from a strange, out-of-the-way orphanage … and soon, strange things start happening, people begin dying, and the adoptive mom suspects her not-so-innocent child … but daddy doesn’t see it that way. A better-than-average thriller with Vera Famiga and Peter Sarsgaard as the parents. Rated 18A.
3. WHATEVER WORKS:
This is your standard Woody Allen film about a dysfunctional, neurotic middle-aged New Yorker who somehow ends up with the beautiful younger woman … only Woody, now in his 70s, is beyond playing such characters, so Larry David fills in acting just like Woody. Evan Rachel Wood co-stars. Rated PG.
4. ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS:
Simon Pegg is the voice of Buck, a new character who is based on The Crocodile Hunter – great fun!!
THE OMEN (1976):
Halloween … and this is a great chiller to put on the old DVD player – Gregory Peck is a US ambassador who learns that his young son is literally the Anti-Christ.
Hard to believe, but there’s an excellent story this time that helps us understand all previous Saw movies.
Excellent biopic of the famous aviatrix
CIRQUE DU FREAK: THE VAMPIRE’S ASSISTANT
Not much comedy and not enough horror in this horror-comedy
Well-done version of this 50s comic book character – Japanese comic books, that is.
