  • 1. PARKER:

    Jason Statham stars as the title character in this screen version of the character created by Donald Westlake for the best-selling series of novels. Parker is a bad guy – he’s a thief, but he has principles – he doesn’t steal from the poor and he doesn’t hurt innocent people. When the crew with which he works on a major heist turns on him and leaves him for dead, they are no longer categorized as “innocent people,” and it’s payback time as Parker, now with a new identity, comes after them. Jennifer Lopez co-stars in this terrific action-thriller. Rated 18A.

  • 2. THE LAST STAND:

    It tanked at the box office which may be a message for Arnold Schwarzenegger and his “come back” … but I found this to be a pretty good action flick for what it is – mindless stuff blowing up. As Sheriff Ray Owen, he and his rag-tag deputies are the last line of defence as a Mexican drug cartel kingpin escapes custody and heads for the border … the very border that Owen and his team find within their jurisdiction. Arnold knows he’s too old for this stuff … and that’s clear as he creaks and lurches through the movie – but still, it has a certain charm, and a lotta stuff blows up! Forrest Whitaker also stars. Rated 14A.   

  • 3. STAND UP GUYS:

    A great cast led by Al Pacino and Christopher Walken along with Alan Arkin and Juliana Margulies offers a story that stumbles and fumbles a bit, but the watchabiity of this cast makes up for a lot. A couple of over the hill gangsters want to do just one more last job, getting the old gang together – that never works out well – when one of them is marked for death. Pacino steals the show as only he can! Rated 18A.

  • PARKER:

    This is the first movie based on a Westlake novel to use the name “Parker” as the late author would not allow it unless it was to be part of a series … Statham will be back. Previous movies include Point Blank (Walker); Payback (Porter); and The Outfit (Macklin).

LOCK, STOCK, AND TWO SMOKING BARRELS (1998):

15 years old now, so it qualifies as a classic – Jason Statham’s first movie – directed by Guy Richie.

  • STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS

    Superb telling of another bold step in the new franchise with some great surprises.
