Major Force
Family that needs desperately to spend some quality time together with workaholic dad, escapes to the mountains for a ski vacation. Freak act of nature turns a special moment into a eye-opening revelation for mom and the kids. A dark comedy that hits home. Has one of the best endings I've seen all year. Worth the subtitles.
Victor Mature, Weep For Me
Released in 1948, this film today is considered a Film-Noir classic. Mature plays a Vitalis-wearing homicide detective, who was raised on them mean streets. His nemesis is his former street-running-buddy, actor Richard Conte, who is the poster-boy for everything despicable. Even Conte's mama can only weep and pray for his soul and she doesn't put much effort in that. Conte's on the run looking to reunite with his soul-mate, who may or may not be glad when they find each other in the end. Gritty and shot in black and white, back in the day when they knew how to do that so successfully.
GoldenEye in the Beholder
Ryan Reynolds has come a very long way since he starred in "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place" back in 1998-2001. In this film (based on a true story) he holds his own in all his scenes with Oscar winner Helen Mirren.
Mirren portrays Maria Altman, whose family's artwork was pilfered by the Nazis during WWII and blatantly hangs in an Austrian museum. She engages young lawyer, Reynolds, to help fight for justice as they take on an entire nation.
Not Your Father's Typical Western
Plodding, stylistic, and endearing, this film was shot primarily in Twizel, Canterbury, New Zealand and Wester Ross, Scotland, UK. Kodi Smit-McPhee (played Owen in "Let Me In") stars as a love-struck, Scottish young man who travels the world to reunite with his first love. German born actor, Michael Fassbender, bounty-hunter-turns-vision-quest-guide, gives a strong supporting performance. Whimsical at times, yet very believable, if you are a true romantic.
Noah Wyle didn't take long to fall into the role of survival leader, Tom Mason, after his role as Dr. John Carter on TV's "ER" ended. This Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller is an acquired taste. It has a strong message of the importance of family and loyalty. It's five seasons strong and still fighting the critics.
