  • LET ME IN

    Horror-thriller about a 12 year-old boy with talents

  • THE SOCIAL NETWORK

    The story behind Facebook.

  • 1. GET HIM TO THE GREEK:

    Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall)  stars once again as rocker Aldous Snow  in this somewhat profane exercise in superstar behaviour as a young talent agent (Jonah Hill) is given a career make-or-break assignment: get the Brit rocker from London to LA’s Greek Theatre in time for the big concert.  Brand is over the top with sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll coming off a bad break-up and a career nose-dive while Hill’s character just tries to keep up.  Rated 18A.

  • 2. IRON MAN 2:

    Robert Downey, Jr. is back as Tony Stark, even more self-confident than before, if that’s possible.  The special effects are over the top – just an amazing array of, in this case, Iron MEN, as well as a new villain (Mickey Rourke) who “electrifies” the film, literally, as a Russian who would like to “help” the world community benefit from the Iron Man technology.  Gwyneth Paltrow is back as Pepper Potts, Stark’s assistant who becomes more than that in this film.  Great action and super characters.  Literally! Rated PG.   

  • 3. FROZEN:

    “Frozen” is to skiing and snowboarding what the movie “Open Water” was to scuba diving.  Three friends, boarders to the end, are stranded on a ski lift as darkness falls, the staff leaves for the weekend, and no one knows they are up there.  The weather closes in, and they begin to freeze.  Can’t get worse?  Yes it can.  A pack of hungry wolves is lurking below the lift, just waiting for a morsel or two to drop from the sky.  A no-name cast (because not all make it to the end, I suspect). Rated 14-A.

  • 4. IRON MAN 2:

    Co-star Mickey Rourke actually spent time in a Russian prison to get the feel for his role – not as a prisoner – just as an observer.  That reality is reflected in his performance.

CAST AWAY (2000): 

Ten years is enough to make this one a classic.  Tom Hanks is stranded, alone on an island, with only a ball named Wilson to keep him sane.  If you haven’t seen this since it came out, it’s well-worth the trip back in time.

  • A WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS  

    Michael Douglas is superb in the role he created, the story a little uneven, but a good one to recommend

  • YOU AGAIN 

    Great fun as two high school rivals come together … and a great turn by Betty White and Cloris Leachman

  • THE LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS: THE OWLS OF GA’HOOLE 

    Nice animation, good 3D fantasy for kids … and adults too.
