  • Night At the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb:

    The longer the title, the less auspicious the movie, so goes an old saying. The “Museum” series has pretty much run its course this time as most of the old cast (Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Steve Coogan, Owen Wilson) are joined by Rebel Wilson as trouble abounds … the ability of the museum exhibits to come to life is in jeopardy, and what’s required is a trip to the British Museum in London to solve the problem. Ben Kingsley is fine as an Egyptian king, long dead, and the usual monkey business abounds … but it’s all been-there-done-that. Not to say it’s a bad movie … it’s fun and entertaining, but we’ve seen it all before. Rated PG.

  • Pioneer:

    Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games) and Jonathan LaPaglia (The Slap) star in a nail-biting thriller set in the Norwegian Sea in the 1980s when oil exploration in that region was just getting going. Understanding the potential of the enormous oil deposits under the seabed requires some very brave divers and some very brave underwater operatives … but where there is big money, there is also bug trouble. Conspiracies abound, there is danger at every turn, and there may be no way out. Rated 18A.

  • Alpha and Omega 3: The Great Wolf Games:

    Strictly for young kids, this animated film about young wolves in the Northern wilds is the third sequel to the original Alpha & Omega film – that one was for theatrical release, this one is direct-to-Video. That doesn’t make it a bad film, it’s just not for most people – just very little ones who will find the goings-on quite exciting … over the age of about 8, it’s all pretty passé , but the youngsters will like the drama and the action. Rated G.

  • The Duke (1999):  

    This is a pretty innocuous film, focusing on a British Duke who decides, in a fit of pique, to leave everything, on his death, to his dog rather than to his relatives.  What sets it apart is that it was Canadian-born James Doohan's final movie.  Doohan of course, was Scotty on the original Star Trek, a man who stormed the beaches of Normandy in WWII, and who built a career on the character that became iconic for saying, "Captain, I canna give her more power .. the dilithium crystals will blow!"  If you want a veddy, veddy British film, but don't have the budget to go to the UK, where do you film this?  Right ... Victoria, BC.  

     

    The Baytown Outlaws (2012):  

    Billie Bob Thornton has no difficulty playing a good-ole-boy redneck and it's there in spades in this drama in which he is the bad guy, Carlos, who shoots his wife three times in the stomach.  Who is going to go after him to make him pay?  He's actually her ex, there's a little girl involved, and everything comes into play - Native Americans, Federal Agents on the trail, and more guns and hardware than anyone can handle.  Australian actor Travis Fimmel (Vikings, Tarzan) is the guy who comes to the rescue ... but is he tough enough to handle Carlos?  We'll see!  Rated 18A.

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.
