  • 1. THE EXPENDABLES 2:

    A lot of stuff blows up in this aimless, brainless (and I mean that in a good way) action movie that pulls together most of the pieces of the 2010 original that was directed by Sylvester Stallone, who also co-wrote the script and starred. Stallone hands the directors reins over to Simon West (Blackhawk Down) this time, but still co-wrote, and still stars. The action picks up shortly after the adventures in the first movie with the mercenary team. Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) has a new job for them, retrieving something of great value from the former Soviet Union. And … a lotta stuff blows up. It’s all great fun, with Arnold, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Jean Claude Van Damme, Liam Hemsworth, and more. Rated 18A.

  • 2. BRINGING UP BOBBY:

    Mila Jovavich leaves her :Resident Evil” movies behind long enough to play a normal single mom raising her son. Well, not quite normal … she has fled a life of crime in her native Eastern Europe and is trying to build a new life in the States when her past catches up with her. Now what does she do? Can’t become a criminal and raise Bobby too … but she may be forced into “the life” once again, which means giving up her son. Bill Pullman also stars in what is not a bad little movie. Rated PG.

  • 3. SANTA PAWS 2: THE SANTA PUPS:

    Two years ago Disney served up a direct-to-DVD quickie in which Santa loses his memory, and it falls to a young girl and her dog to save the day … and they do. Santa’s in trouble again, and this time it’s the pups to the rescued. Strictly for young kids … and this is one that will have parents just grinning and bearing it. If you’re five, pretty good … if you’re 11 … lame! Rated G.

  • THE EXPENDIBLES 2:

    The action sequence in which a rubber raft is blown up had a tragic end as one stuntman was killed and another seriously injured. Not all movie explosions are safe!

FIRST BLOOD (1982):

Stallone is tough as nails in this shot-in-the-Fraser Valley kick off to the Rambo franchise. Still a good thrill ride!

  • THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN

    Good job from all involved to wrap up this blockbuster franchise

  • THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN

    Daniel Day Lewis is amazing as Lincoln, and the story stands up well.
