  • 1. THE LAST SONG:

    Miley Cyrus casts of Hannah Montana once and for all in a more grown-up story of teen angst.  Forced to spend the summer with her father (Greg Kinnear), divorced from her mom and struggling with a few of his own demons, Miley’s character sulks, acts out, … and meets HIM … played by Liam Hemsworth (her real-life boyfriend), the romance is slow to start, but soon hits its stride.  I found it surprisingly good – better than expected, with an interesting twist at the end.  Rated PG.

  • 2. FURRY VENGEANCE:

    Brendan Fraser is just silly here as Dan Sanders, a land developer in the Oregon rain forest who comes up against an entire town … and a bunch of forest animals  - all bent on stopping him before he wrecks the environment.  Led by a clever raccoon, the forest animals are formidable foes, but at the end of it all, this is strictly kid stuff, although that seems to be just where Brendan Fraser belongs.  Rated PG.   

  • 3. GUNLESS:

    I’m a great supporter of Canadian television, a great fan of Paul Gross, and always try to see the best in domestic projects because they are so difficult to finance and to execute.  Unfortunately, this tale of an American desperado in the old west who makes his way across the border to Canada, where we don’t go for all that six-gun-stuff, just doesn’t make it at any level.  The worst thing I can say about it is the truth … it LOOKS Canadian … the kiss of death.  But I encourage you to rent it and see for yourself! Rated PG.

  • 4. THE LAST SONG:

    I know it’s a little sappy, and it’s a bit of a stretch for Cyrus to play grown-up, but Greg Kinnear’s turn as the mystery dad is worth the story in itself.

HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER (1973): 

This is a western that’s not gunless … and it’s not without a hint of the supernatural either.  A natural extension of Eastwood’s earlier movie “Hang ‘Em High,” (1968) this one is a classic every time out.  Eastwood’s first time directing himself in a western.

  • EAT, PRAY, LOVE  

    Yes, it’s a chick-flick, but it’s impossible not to like Julia Roberts in her trip around the world looking for something better

  • THE EXPENDIBLES

    Mindless action … which is exactly what you want from a Stallone movie

  • SCOTT PILGRIM vs. THE WORLD

    Fans of the graphic comic will get this completely … others not so much.
