  • HOT TUB TIME MACHINE

    Title tells the story … spring break movie in which college dudes go back to the ’80s … didn’t we just have those?
  • HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

    Animated 3D feature from those who brought us Kung Fu Panda and Shrek, with the voices of Gerard Butler and American Ferrera – goes back to Norse time to show us how misunderstood the dragons really were.
  • 1. TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON:

    The Twilight cast is back for another installment of the vampire-romance.  This time it’s the werewolves VS. the vampires with a break-out role by a ripped and chiseled Taylor Lautner along with the ever-glistening Robert Pattinson and the completely smitten Kristin Stewart.  Bella wants to be a vampire, or she doesn’t want to live, an interesting contradiction in terms.  Better special effects than the first film, but the story gets bogged down too much … however very strong at the box office.  Rated 14A.

  • 2. THE BLIND SIDE:

    Sandra Bullock’s Oscar-winning role as Leanne Touhy, a pistol-pacing mama who takes a homeless African-American teen into her family’s care and changes his life.  Tragically, this has all been slightly tainted by recent revelations of her own family life, but the movie is positive, uplifting, and family-friendly.  Rated PG.

  • 3. EVERYBODY’S FINE:

    Well, actually they aren’t that fine, and that’s what Robert DeNiro learns when his character, a recent widower with adult children, tries to catch up with the lives of his kids, a job that his ex-wife always carried out.  I enjoyed this film despite its dark side, but many found it depressing at some level.  I didn’t think so – it was an excellent study in human behaviour  in mature families.  Drew Barrymore and Kate Beckinsale co-star. Rated 14A.

  • 4. THE BLIND SIDE:

    This superb story of Michael Oher, the real-life under-educated, homeless teen has been sanitized and simplified for the screen, but that takes nothing away for the positive message that this movie brings … along with Bullock’s superb performance.

RUDY (1993): 

A different set of challenges for Sean Astin’s character who just wants to play college football for Notre Dame … it’s just that he’s way too small.  A great true story.

  • THE BOUNTY HUNTER  

    A difficult-to-believe story of ex-spouses starring Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston – barely qualifies as a rom-com
  • DIARY OF A WIMPY KID 

    Good movie about middle school, but strictly for kids
  • REPO MEN 

    Chilling sci-fi thriller with Jude Law and human organ repos
