  • THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN, PART 1

    Beginning of the end of the Twilight franchise … just one more movie after this  which could be subtitled, “I Married a Vampire.”. 
 
  • 1. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, PART II:

    A very satisfying end to the most successful (financially) movie franchise ever.  Harry squares off against Voldemort in a life or death battle … and the outcome is surprising.  Many other surprises too as the true motivation for many of the long-time characters is revealed.  There is some romance, some nostalgia, some great magical action scenes and a conclusion that is both satisfying and unpredictable.  Daniel Radcliffe is outstanding in his last spin at Potter, as are Hermione and Ron Weasley. Rated 14A.

  • 2. LARRY CROWN:

    A great cast here – Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts – and an interesting premise – Larry (Hanks) has been one of the best employees at a big-box building supplies store that the company has ever seen, winning employee of the month more times than anyone else.  This time his recognition isn’t of a positive nature – he is singled out for layoff in a tough economy because he has no post-secondary education, and is therefore not as promotable as others.  Divorced, and now jobless, he decides to upgrade his education by taking classes at the local community college, where he meets HER – Mercedes (Roberts) the teacher.  Since there is no attraction between them initially, and since this is a rom-com, you know where they will both end up.  Written by Nia Vardalos (My Big Fact Greek Wedding). Rated PG.

  • 3. DREAMWORKS DRAGONS; GIFT OF NIGHT FURY:

    It’s A direct-to-DVD follow-up to the highly successful “How to Train your Dragon,” again featuring the voice of Montreal’s Jay Baruchel.  Hiccup and his dragon go on a voyage of discovery finding an island populated entirely by dragons, but not the kind with which they are familiar.  The original movie was in 3D and added some zip … this one is a little slower, but kids will love it. Rated G.
