  • Jurassic World:  

    Based on the best-selling YA novel by John Green, this story has a bit of a Gone-Girl-vibe as Quentin (Nat Wolff) who has had a crush on Margo (Cara Delavigne) since grad one, finally gets together with her for a great all-night adventure in the latter days of high school – it’s the perfect night.  Next day Quentin tries to connect with Margo, and she has disappeared.  Margo loved nothing more than a mystery, and now that’s exactly what she had become – a total mystery.  No one in their group has any idea what might have happened, and the search is on.  Good movie, easy to recommend.  

     

    Rated 14A.

  • The Vatican Tapes:  

    Michael Pena is priest Father Lozano, who may be the last hope for humanity when a young woman (Alison Lohman) is brought to him with what seems to be a possession.  Everyone in her life has tragedy befall them, and she brings misery and death wherever she goes.  As Father Lozano explores her case, he learns that, yes, she is possessed, but by something far, far more insidious than any standard demon.  She is possessed by something so horrible, so ancient, and so brutal, that it may soon be unleashed on all of humanity.  A good example of the genre, if you like exorcist-type movies.    

     

    Rated18A.

  • Strange Magic (2015):

     This animated feature offers a quizzical and musical look at a phantasmagoria of forest creatures playing out action inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Although it looks like a production aimed at kids, the soundtrack says otherwise, offering up some great music from each of the past four decades.  Voice actors for the various forest creatures are played by such stalwarts as The Good Wife's Allan Cumming, True Blood's Evan Rachel Wood, and Nashville's Sam Palladio.  George Lucas played a major role in selecting the music, working for five years with the director Gary Rydstrom (finding Nemo) making certain that each song was exactly right.  Rated PG.


    Rated PG.  

  •  2 Guns: (2013):

     This underrated action adventure features Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as Bobby and Stig respectively.  They meet while robbing a bank.  As the two take on the position of rivals for the spoils, we get a hint that there is maybe just a little more to each of them than we see at first blush.  Bobby is actually an undercover DEA agent working a case.  And we soon learn that Stig is an undercover Naval Intelligence office working exactly the same case, although neither Federal department has told the other.  What begins as tough competition turns into a begrudging buddy story as the two form a shaky alliance to get the bad guys.  Rough language, but great action and an excellent plot.


     

    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.
