  • 1. CATFISH:

    Very limited theatre release for this critically acclaimed indie production that will leave you stunned at the twist ending.  Don’t breathe a word of it once you have seen it – don’t spoil the outcome for those who have not.  It’s truly a story of our times – real life – that begins with a simple request on MySpace, then turns into a cross-country road trip in search of the truth.  Can’t say anymore than that. Rated PG.

  • 2. MACHETE:

    Robert Rodriguez directs, Quentin Tarentino produces, and a fake trailer produced as part of the movie “Grindhouse” becomes a real movie unto itself, starring ex-convict Danny Trejo (Con Air) as a Mexican Federale who is double-crossed and left for dead, making this one mean revenge movie.  Great action, lots of comic-book violence, and Tarentino’s signature love of the spaghetti western are all in evidence here.  Rated 18A.   


    Steve Carell and Paul Rudd star in this remake of a French film called “Dinner for Idiots,” slightly different title, same idea.  Rudd is a corporate up-and-comer who gets invited to one his boss’s pet projects – a dinner invitation to which you bring a guest who is a misfit at best, slightly mental at worst.  The guests are there to be made fun of, but most don’t realize they are the butt of a thousand jokes.  Carell is the oddball escorted by Rudd … and oddball who makes dioramas using dead mice to be stand in for famous people. Rated PG.

    In the tradition of Charles Bronson’s “Death Wish, “ Clint Eastwood’s “Hang ‘Em High,” or “High Plains Drifter,” this one offers lots and lots of action … co-stars Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan are interesting … Alba has a “no nudity” clause in her contract … Lohan, you’ll see … does not.

CON AIR (1997): 

Nicholas Cage as convict Cameron Poe just wants to go home and see his little girl … but he winds up on a flight with a load of convicts who are suddenly in charge … and landing on the Las Vegas strip is one of the better special effects you’ll ever see.
