  • 'Jumper'...cheaper than buying gasoline

    This is really a mess of a movie. Is there a good guy? We meet people who kill others, but do we know why? What about backgrounds? I love films which make us think, and leave unanswered questions. But what if we don’t know what questions are being asked? Somebody forgot to write “Jumpers.” Instead, we are supposed to be impressed by the special effects. Rule Number One for making a movie: Let the effects support the story, not the other way around.

  • Movie Memos

    Some memos will be marked [Unpreviewed]. This means that I have not seen the film. Any information about the film content is taken from press releases, Web sites and other sources. The “Family Rating” is mainly taken from the Web site filmratings.com.

  • Best films of 2007, box office rankings

    There are 12 films which I will list as being excellent enough to be remembered from the multitude of films which played locally in 2007. Be aware that some of those honored with Oscars for 2006 did not reach local screens until last calendar year. The films were a mixed lot. There were two sci-fi films: “The Children of Men” and “I Am Legend.” Five fit into the broad category of history insofar as there was some historical peg to hang them on.

  • '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?
