(R) Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg get together to try and outsmart drug lords who don’t like there money taken. Oh yea, they are both law enforcement of some kind or other. Seen it before but it is Washington and Wahlberg so I’ll have to grin and bear it. Three tubs of popcorn out of five.
(PG-13) Once again Hugh Jackman puts his claws on the line and this time it’s a challenge of his lifetime to deal with his own personal demons. In Japan he is pushed to his limits at the point of a samurai sword. Three tubs of popcorn out of five.
THE SMURFS 2
(PG) Someone needs to explain to me several things: 1) why?, 2) how does a kids cartoon come to the screen with a PG rating?, 3) why? No tubs of popcorn out of five.
(R) FINALLY, an awesome scary movie that doesn’t use ‘horror’ to scare us. Instead, based on a true family story, the director gives us creepy music and something more horrifying than what is on the screen and that is what’s in our own minds! Four tubs of popcorn out of five.
DESPICABLE ME 2
(PG) Of course this is the number one movie grossing over a zillion gazillion dollars at the box office – have you seen it yet? This is a film that is the true definition of family fun. It has laughs, minions, a storyline, family, minions, more laughs and did I say minions? Steve Carell returns as Gru – the mad scientist not-so-evil-anymore villain and Dad of three rambunctious girls who are growing up. Four tubs of popcorn out of five.
GROWN UPS 2
(PG-13) The boys are back in town up to the same old stuff, in the same old ways and doing the same old things that lead to the same old conclusion. The operative word here is ‘old’ but some people enjoy that. Three tubs of popcorn out of five.
(PG) A garden snail with big dreams finds, through a freak accident, that sometimes dreams are totally awesome. Another colorful animated family story from Dreamworks Animation. Three tubs of popcorn out of five.
(PG-13) Bruce Willis is back with Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and newcomer Anthony Hopkins and Byung-hun Lee. This time the team is tracking down a nuclear device but that doesn’t stop chaos to ensue. Three tubs of popcorn out of five.
(R) Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy are fighting crime – to bad they can’t arrest this film. I don’t know what they were going for but besides a chuckle or two here and there I felt like I was watching a nightmare of MISS CONGENIALITY. Two tubs of popcorn out of five.
(PG-13) It’s a war between the human race and sea aliens who have come up through the ocean from another dimension. Yea, I thought the same thing but if you love rock ‘em, sock ‘em robots on steroids then this is the film for you. Three tubs of popcorn out of five.
