The third “Fockers” movie – Robert DeNiro, Ben Stiller
Remake of the John Wayne classic with Jeff Bridges
Jack Black as the giant Gulliver.
Who is Salt? Well, this action-adventure thriller in which Angelina Jolie does all her own stuntwork is a thrill ride from start to finish, and you will be asking the title question all along the way as this CIA admin type is suddenly on the lam. Great action, superb supporting role by Liev Schreiber, and a full-value rental. Rated PG.
2. WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS:
Michael Douglas is back as Gordon Gekko, now out of jail and back on top with his high-finance cronies, but this is really Shia LaBouef’s movie, as he becomes the new generation of tycoon. Oliver Stone’s reimagining (don’t call it a sequel) of his first Wall Street movie is long on dialogue and short on action. Accurate depiction of what caused the market meltdown, and whom, but a little too clinical. Rated PG.
A group of people riding an elevator learns quickly when it stalls between floors, that the Devil is among them. But who is it, and why are diabolical things happening within the close confines of the stalled car? A variation on Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians” but … with the Devil. Co-written by M. Night Shymalin – one of the better projects to which he has been attached in some time. Rated 14A.

Originally scripted with a male lead to be played by Tom Cruise, I cannot imagine a better choice than Jolie. Salt, by the way, is an acronym for “Strategic Arms Limitation Talks.”
Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner star in what was a film vastly ahead of its time. The movie was a box office dud, but the arcade game out-grossed the film.
Visually stunning sequel to the 1982 original which was way ahead of its time
This Yogi is too smart for me … I liked the original better!
Outstanding based-on-fact boxing film
HOW DO YOU KNOW
Rom-com with Reese Witherspoon and Jack Nicholson – good cast, fair movie.
