    Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum lead the enhanced soldiers as they battle yet another evil


    Based on Stephenie Meyer’s novel, this one goes into body-snatching territory as “something” is commandeering people’s bodies and wiping out their memories.


    Anne Hathaway is outstanding and full value for her Best Supporting Actress Oscar in this movie version of the musical stage production. Russell Crowe is probably the weakest castmember in the beginning, but his portrayal of Javert, the policeman, becomes increasingly strong as the story progresses. Hugh Jackman is Jean Valjean, the music is sensational, and the scope of film is at times breathtaking. But remember … this is a musical – almost every line of dialogue is sung! Rated 14A.

  • 2. LINCOLN:

    Another Academy Award winning performance here, this time by Daniel Day Lewis in this exceptional portrayal of the American President who emancipated the slaves. That’s the focus here, mostly political wrangling in Congress as various factions lobby for their respective viewpoints. While I cannot dispute the exceptional performance by Lewis, frankly, I found the movie something of a drag because of its political focus, but I cannot argue with its critical success. Rated 14A.

  • 3. THIS IS 40:

    Pete and Debbie played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, were young and happy in the movie “Knocked Up.” This film looks at the two characters from that 2007 movie that starred Seth Rogan and Katherine Heigl, along with Rudd and Mann, and looks at the lives of Pete and Debbie five years later ... not a pretty picture. Like “Knocked Up,” and many Judd Apatow-directed movies, I found this one too mean-spirited to be particularly enjoyable, although for fans of both the genre and the performers, you’ll get all you want! Rated 18A.


    Anne Hathaway’s bleak, tortured portrayal of Fanitne was enhanced by a crash diet that had her lose more than 20 pounds in just weeks before shooting began … a diet that she says endangered her health. All for art!

JFK (1991):

22 years later, this film still resonates its authenticity despite Oliver Stone’s penchant to rewrite history. A great look inside the investigation following the Kennedy assassination. Gary Oldman and Kevin Costner star.


    Good turn by Tina Fey in this rom-com


    Kids will love the 3D animation that involves a prehistoric family


    Great thriller with Gerard Butler as a disgraced Presidential bodyguard.
