  • 12 YEARS A SLAVE :

    A freeman kidnapped


    Animated kids’ tale

  • 1.R.I.P.D.:

    Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges star in a box office bomb that is pretty much a “Men In Black” rip-off.  Adapted from a comic book about the “Rest In Peace Department,” a place where dead law-enforcement officers who are on the cusp of going to heaven or hell go to work off their sinful lives in return for a better future “up there,” this movie is full of CGI effects and doesn’t have much of a script.  So … for what it is, a comic book (and not a popular one at that) brought to the screen, it’s okay.  Entertaining?  Well, it’s okay.  Not great.  Rated 14A.


    This is a prequel to Monsters Inc, the entertaining and successful Pixar film from 2001.  Once again featuring he voices of John Goodman as Sully, and Billy Crystal as Mike, it takes us back to the formative years of the monsters that we learned to love in the first movie.  This time we gain some insight into how they came to be in the scaring-people business, and how their relationships developed.  I know that it sounds like I’m talking about real people here … but ask any kid six years old and up, and they’ll fill you in as to why this is all so important.  Excellent family film, and adults will get a lot of good laughs too!  Good fun! Rated G. 


    Saorise Ronan (Atonement, Hanna) stars along with Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans, Runner Runner) as one half of a duo that descends upon a small seaside town, and soon has the locals wondering just who they are and what they are doing in this locale.  It takes awhile, as strange thing happen, to get the story out … the ladies are 200 years old, they survive on human blood, and they don’t play nicely if you get on their wrong side.  A pretty good chiller that didn’t get much play in theatres. Rated 18A.

  • R.I.P.D.:

    Is this movie really as bad as the box office suggested?  I would say “yes” but it has a local guy, Ryan Reynolds, as the star, and I feel in obligation to support him by allowing each viewer to make his or her own decision on this!  If you’re under 10, go for Monsters U.


Based on a Stephen King novel, this classic was a non-event until VHS and later DVD renters got the fever.  It’s the film that made Morgan Freeman a star, and is still one of the best prison movies ever made.


    A dark, complex story of drug dealing and the law with a good performance by Javier Bardem


    Offensive on many levels, but its target demographic will find Johnny Knoxville quite funny in these reality-based segments.
