"2 Guns"
Three Popcorns

Genre: Action/Adventure, Suspence

Comment: An entertaining thriller with some well timed and written comedy too.

"Still Mine"
Four Popcorns

Genre: Drama

Cast: James Cromwell, Genevieve Bujold, Rick Roberts, Julie Stewart

Director: Michael McGowan

Rating: PG-13

Comment: Outstanding acting by Cromwell and Bujold in this touching, long-time marriage impacted by early Alzheimer's based on a true story. It will viscerally grab you and your heart.


Two Popcorns

Genre: Action/Adventure

Cast: Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharito Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna

Director: Neil Blomkamp

Rating: R

Comment: A thinly veiled sci-fi version of the "Occupy Wall Street" social dynamic. Matt Damon should just go ahead and run for office and stop making theater-goers subsidize his political POV. It's supposed to be about entertainment!

"We're The Millers"
Three Popcorns

Genre: Action/Adventure, Comedy

Cast: Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Will Poulter, Emma Roberts, Ed Helms

Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber

Rating: R

Comment: A real laugh-out-loud crack up! Lots of fun.
