The Missing

In this brutal, action packed Western, a band of Indians kidnaps a girl to see her in Mexico, along with several other young girls.

Her mother (Cate Blanchett) has to reconcile with her own estranged father (Tommy Lee Jones) to rescue her. A very moving picture. I enjoyed this one.

Love Actually

Writer/director Richard Curtis' warm-hearted romantic comedy has 18 major characters in 11 different stories and feels both overstuffed and undernourished. But an excellent cast makes it a winner.

This is strictly for adults because of the "F" word being used in the presence of mother, father and siblings and also because it shows them making a porn film.

This would have been an excellent movie if they left out some of the garbage. I believe they were all English actors and actresses.

Master and Commander

Peter Weir's film, an epic high seas adventure with plenty of intimacy brings to life Patrick O'Brien's tales of Captain Lucky Jack Aubrey (Russell Crowe) and the crew of the HMS Surprise.

Another excellent and heart-warming movie showing love for others. Gives you much insight about the young crews and goings on in that century.

The Last Samurai

Click for more infor or to buy

As a Civil War veteran who goes to Japan to train their army in modern warfare, he has many related problems to his tour of duty, which he carries with him in the form of flashbacks. I felt Tom Cruise did an excellent job of portraying a captain. He showed much integrity and fighting abilities.

I thought the movie was excellent - no sex, no swearing, no drugs. I guess the "R" rating is for all of the senseless slaughtering of human lives. Edward Zwieb gave an excellent performance.

The scenery was beautiful. I thought this was great. (Of course, I like Tom Cruise and wish he had stayed married to Nicole Kidman!)

Something Has to Give

An enjoyable romantic comedy with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton playing themselves basically, as a cradle-robbing playboy and a disapproving divorcee playwright who fall in love despite themselves.

This also was an enjoyable movie. It has a lot of laughs - per usual with Nicholson in it.
