  • 1. RUSH:

    Suddenly it’s the ‘70s!  This superb Formula 1 racing film perfectly captures the nearly-deadly rivalry on the racing circuit between Brit James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Austrian Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).  The racing footage is dramatic, the actors look and act so much like the real people it’s difficult to imagine this isn’t a documentary.  Lauda’s fiery crash is well documented, and for anyone, racing fan or not, this is a great film.  Ron Howard directed! Rated 14A.

  • 2. CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLLS 2:

    A follow-up to the 2011 movie in which weather control and food seem to get crossed up, this one has a slightly meaner spirit as all manner of creatures, some half animal – half food hybrids, and others more difficult to explain, are unleashed on the land.  An animated feature that made buckets of money in its theatrical release because it was enjoyed by both children and adults.  Features the voices of Anna Faris, Neil Patrick Harris, and James Caan.  Good fun! Rated PG.   

  • 3. LAST VEGAS:    

    What a cast – Morgan Freeman, Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Kevin Kline, and Mary Steenburgen, with a premise that makes it sort of a senior citizen’s version of The Hangover.  Billy (Douglas) is getting married to a woman half his age, and he wants all his sixty-plus pals to come to Vegas for the biggest bachelor party of all time.  No one is that interested … Archie (Freeman) has health issues, Paddy (De Niro) has lost his wife and is still struggling, and Sam (Kevin Kline) is in a dead-end marriage … they assemble in Sin City and soon it’s on!  Good fun! Rated 14A.

  • The Promotion (2008):

    Doug (Sean William Scott) works for a supermarket chain and they are opening a new store in his area.  Doug is married, starting a family, buying a house, and really needs the job.  He's told he's a shoo-in.  Enter Richard (John C. Reilly), just arrived from Canada, who needs the job just as badly, and may be better qualified.  This one plays out in a most interesting fashion!  Rated 14A.

     

    Darkness (2002):

    This horror thriller that stars Anna Paquin, has every cliche imaginable for a spooky story, but it will still make you jump.  Teenage Regina moves with her family into an isolated old house that her father gets for a bargain price ... and only then, when it's too late, does the family begin to realize that the house has a history ... and that it wants everybody's body and soul!  Rated 18A.

     

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (2011): 

    Gary Oldman and Colin Firth star in this remake of the 1979 TV mini-series that starred Alec Guinness, based on the novel by John LeCarre.  A far more realistic look at the spy business than many movie treatments, this is not necessarily a good thing.  Very wordy, loads of dialogue, and limited action simply demonstrate what the spy business is really like – it’s not all car chases and private jets.  Great performances here, and a worthwhile story if you can stick with it.  Rated 14A.

     

EASY RIDER (1969): 

The late Dennis Hopper co-wrote (along with Peter Fonda) and starred in what is surely the classic road picture as two guys hit the roads of American on their choppers.  Watch for a supporting role by music producer Phil Spector.
