  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2:  

    Jennifer Lawrence is back as Katniss Everdean for the last time as this four-part series based on three books comes to an end.  A darker, more bleak, and less uplifting film than the previous ones, part of that can be attributed to the fact that the third book was made into two movies instead of just one, and that left things just a little thin.  Still an excellent story over all, and still some great performances.  Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Josh Hutcherson star, and Donald Sutherland is once again, the evil President Snow. Rated 14A.

  • Daddy’s Home:  

    Will Ferrell is the meek and cooperative step-father to a pair of kids who miss their “real” dad who was lost in the divorce with their mother (Linda Cardellini) … the real dad is played by Mark Wahlberg, a motorcycle-riding tough guy who decides, during a visit, that he’d like to have his kids back.  The usual lame jokes ensue, as this is not the best work of either Wahlberg or Ferrell, but there are a few decent laughs.  The step-dad is a radio host, and he’s not all that good at that either.  Rated 14A.

  • The Letters:  

    A unique bio-pic of the life of Mother Theresa, told through her own words and through those of her spiritual advisor, Father Celeste Van Exem (Max Von Sydo) by examining more than 50 years worth of letters exchanged by the two.  British actress Juliette Stevenson (The Enfield Haunting) is exceptional as she demystifies the life of one of the most prominent people of the 20th century.  Some of her motivation to work with the worst of the worst comes out in her written thoughts.  Filmed in London, England, and India.  Rated PG.

  • End of Watch (2012):

     A very tough law-and-order movie that follows the day-to-day work of a pair of LAPD uniform officers (Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Pena) working the mean streets of South Central LA.  They have to understand the gang culture, they have to understand that even their own families don't always agree with what they do, and they have to understand that every time they walk out on the street, it could be their very last time.  Shot documentary-style, it's gritty, well-made, but don't expect to come out of all this feeling good.  Rated 18A.

The Darjeeling Unlimited (2008):

 A Wes Anderson film (The Grand Budapest Hotel) that is just as quirky and strange as one would expect from this writer/director.  He has all his usual suspects on board including Owen Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, and Bill Murray, as three brothers cross India by train as they try to deal with the recent death of their father, and their own individual differences.  Rated 18A.
