    Clooney & Bullock in Space

  • RUNNER RUNNER:

    Timberlake and Affleck in trouble!

 
  • 1.THIS IS THE END:

    If you can get past the profanity and the wildly inappropriate humour, this Seth Rogan film that stars everyone he ever knew has a decidedly interesting edge. Everyone plays a version of themselves, so when a big party is set up at James Franco’s house, everyone shows up including Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, Emma Watson, Channing Tatum, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, and many others. The party is a blow-out, especially when the Apocalypse strikes! Very devilish! Rated 18A.

  • 2. THE CROODS:

    The Dreamworks animators have created a beautiful prehistoric landscape as a typical nuclear family in the Stone Age is forced, by climate change and mountain-building upheavals is forced to leave the safety of their cave and trek a great distance to safety. This is one that the kids will love and adults will appreciate, even though the Dad, Grug, voiced by Nicolas Cage, is the usual movie/sitcom father – not that bright – and the you-can’t-tell-me-what-to-do teenage daughter Eep, voiced by Emma Stone seems to have it all over her parents, are stereotypes despite their millions of years’ head start on The Simpsons. Ryan Reynolds voices Guy, the handsome teen who steals Eep’s heart. Rated PG.

  • 3. THE FROZEN GROUND:

    We already know that Nicolas Cage will do movies just for the money regardless of the script. This would appear to be one, despite a cast that includes John Cusak, Dean Norris (Hank on Breaking Bad, Big Jim on The Dome) and Vanessa Hudgens. Cusak’s character is a serial killer in the frozen North who kidnaps, terrorizes, and kills female victims. Nothing new or original occurs, here, the performances are barely adequate, with a script that needs a lot of work. Rated 18A.

  • THE CROODS:

    Probably he best news here is that Ryan Reynolds is not attached to another loser of a movie like his recent R.I.P.D. or Green Lantern. Maybe his niche right now is animated character voices.

THE SEVENTH SIGN (1988):

If you want a really Good end-of-the-world movie, this Demi Moore number from 25 years ago walks her through a number of Apocalyptic events that signify the end is near. This is Ellen De Generas’ first movie role, but she wound up on the cutting room floor.
