  • 1. THE GREEN HORNET:

    I didn’t like much at all about this film that really dumbs down a superhero from a bygone age.  Seth Rogan plays the Hornet with the same slacker-druggie attitude that he used in Pineapple Express and that pretty much ruined the movie for me.  Jay Chou is excellent as Kato, and Christoph Waltz is … interesting as the chief villain.  This was a box office dud, and it’s no surprise!  Rated PG.

  • 2. THE DILLEMMA:

    Vince Vaughn and Kevin James (King of Queens) team up here as a couple of long-time buddies and business partners, Ronny and Nick.  Ronny (Vaughn’s character) sees Kick’s wife in what appears to be a compromising situation with another man … the dilemma – to tell his friend or not.  Playing like an uneven TV sitcom, this has some moments, but really doesn’t have all that much substance.  Okay for what it is – a quickie comedy with little real substance.  Directed by Ron Howard.  Rated 14A.

  • 3. DINOSHARK:

    Direct-to-DVD this one is your standard monster-frozen-in-the-ice story … of course it comes to life and it terrorizes all who encounter it … part dinosaur, part shark, with a lot of teeth. Global warming is to blame as it leaves the Arctic ice and heads down the coast to Puerto Vallarta to feast on beach bunnies and other hangers-on.  B-movie actor Eric Balfour is the star. Pretty cheesy!  Rated 14A.

  • 4. THE DILLEMMA:

    I didn’t like this too much, but it’s better than The Green Hornet, and makes more sense than Dinoshark.

TAKERS: 

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

  • FAST FIVE 

    Vin Diesel and Paul Walker offer everything promised in this hot-car-hot-action flick

  • HOODWINKED TOO: HOOD VS. EVIL 

    3D helps this odd-lot animated feature, but it still seems … odd!

  • PROM 

    Typical teen romp on prom night that works well if you’re, oh, 14 – 16 and female.
