  • 1. 127 HOURS:

    James Franco, fresh from hosting the Oscars, is superb here as Aron Ralston, the real-life guy who chose to cut off his right arm when pinned by a fallen rock while he was climbing in the desert.  Even though we know he came out of this ordeal alive, the movie tells a gripping story of an extreme athlete who has attitude triumph over adversity. Rated 14A.

  • 2. BURLESQUE:

    The story is as old as the movies, but there are some good performances here as Cher fronts an eclectic cast as the proprietor of a Los Angeles burlesque house that has seen better days.  Unscrupulous land developers are looking to take her place to build high-rise condos, but that would send out the streets all the singers and dancers who call the place home.  Enter Ali (Christina Aguilera), a small town girl looking to make it in showbiz.  She gets a job waiting tables, but it isn’t long before she’s belting out tunes on stage.  Rated PG.   

  • 3. LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS:

    Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal start out at opposite ends of the scale, and end up spending a good part of this film naked and thrashing around in bed.  And why not … he’s one of the first Viagra salesman, she has a secret, but both are interested in a roll in the hay with no commitments afterwards.  Not my kind of movie, and I’m embarrassed for Hathaway.  She should know better.  Rated 18A.

    When the real Aron Ralston was asked how accurate the movie was, he said, “It is so factually accurate that it is almost a documentary.”

TAKERS: 

Despite some serious plot holes, this is a pretty good thriller.  Will you see the ending coming?  Probably!

  • HALL PASS 

    A sophomoric Owen Wilson vehicle in which he plays yet another man who has not grown up. 

  • DRIVE ANGRY 3D 

    Over the top, but Nicholas Cage is at his sneering, seething best as an escapee from Hell with a score to settle.
