  • 1. EPIC:

    Director Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots) knows how to get the best out of his voice actors in this animated feature that includes Colin Farrell and Josh Hutcherson of The Hunger Games. The story here has Mary Katherine (Amanda Seyfried), daughter of a scientist father who pays her far too little attention, as he works on his project, the suspected tiny world in a forest glen. In no time she finds herself shrunken down and transported there by the wicked queen, and must now fight to save herself and to save the microcosm in which she now lives. Standard story, but very appealing visually. Rated PG.

  • 2. SCARY MOVIE 5:

    After four previous spoofs, you know what you’re getting here – a raunchy scare-fest that spoofs such movies as Paranormal Activity, Black Swan, Cabin in the Woods, Evil Dead, and Insidious. Charlie Sheen is in the cast despite the fact that his character died in a previous Scary Movie, and we also get Snoop Dog and Molly Shannon in the story of a couple who bring their long-lost niece and nephew home, and find that strange things start happening in the house. It’s very “R” rated, so think twice before letting the kids see this one despite the fact that it’s played for laughs. Rated 18A.   

  • 3. AMOUR:

    A little like “The Notebook” and a little like “Away From Her,” the theme of love and aging comes into play here as a couple in their 80s (Georges and Anne), both accomplished musicians, now retired, enjoy their golden years until Anne has a stroke at the breakfast table one morning, and everything changes. A beautiful story, but also one cloaked in layers of sadness sees the couple trying to cope with what is clearly a situation that cannot end well. Filmed in France with an all-French cast. Rated 14A.


    Exceptional story, but be ready for an emotional ride that won’t have you feeling very positive when all is said and done … but there is a bright side as well

LOVE STORY (1970):

Speaking of things that don’t end well, but are well worth the journey, this somewhat dated classic still holds up as a beautiful story showcasing the very young talents of Ryan O’Neal and Ali McGraw.

    Ashton Kutcher pulls off his portrayal of Steve Jobs in good order

  • KICK-ASS 2

    Okay for a sequel, but without the surprise element of the first


    A great story of dirty business!
