  • 'No Country for Old Men' ... Not your usual Western!

    Sanderson is the Cactus Capital of Texas. It is located in the hill country northwest of San Antonio, and the Big Bend National Park on the Rio Grande River. It is desolate, out-of-the-way, with limited amenities, but most of its inhabitants choose not to leave. Unless something disturbs their lives. It was even more so in the 1970s. Such is the case with Llewellyn and Carla Jean Moss. But that’s getting ahead of our story as told in “No Country for Old Men,” one film which is certain to win more than one Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards.

  • 'Rambo' wreaks vengeance

    It’s been 18 years since Sylvester Stallone portrayed the legendary John Rambo. We don’t know how many years have passed in the life of Rambo since the last film. However, we get the distinct impression from this latest incarnation that John has spent those years in Southeast Asia, probably as a messenger of good will or perhaps as a mercenary.

  • 'Cloverfield' I dont know about this one

    If I interpret the opening correctly, “Cloverfield” is the code name given to the examination of what happened in Manhattan on a spring day in an unmentioned year. The movie is certainly not about a bucolic roll in a verdant pasture where British authors wrote their novels. But what is it about?

  • Run, don't walk to see 'Juno'

    For those of you waiting for outstanding films to play locally, this is one. The first positive and entertaining thing you will note about “Juno” is the sharp dialog. It’s not often that teenagers are portrayed as being so witty. The same goes for the parents. This is not a story of alienation, with parents pitted against their children. Oh, there is hesitation at first when Juno MacGuff must tell her parents that she is pregnant at barely 16. But they all get over it, while kind insults are being hurled from one side to the other.

  • 'The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep' tells the story of Loch Ness monster

    This is a true a story of the creature which is believed to inhabit one of the largest bays in Scotland as we’ll probably ever get.

    Just like Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, hard evidence is hard to come by. But this makes for an enchanted fantasy of a lonely young boy who finds a very old egg. The legend of the water horse is part of the Celtic folklore, and we see the creature, not really a monster at the beginning, grow into maturity. Along the way, it helps the boy bring to the surface a sadness which he has not wanted to believe.
