American Pie 2 "American Pie 2" rated R
The sequel to American Pie this takes place in 1999. Enjoyed the first one more; but this one did have some funny lines.
Some college kids rent a house on the lake for the summer and what fun they have. Oz (Chris Klein) is without a girlfriend, she is in Paris, and Jim (Jason Biggs) is preparing for a dream girl Nadia. Also stars Casey Affleck, Seann William Soctt and Tara Reid. Some of the situations are hilarious, but would have to rate American Pie better in the long run.

America's Sweetheart
No official link
"America's Sweetheart"- rated PG13
Wasn't very good (really slow); but had a great cast of Julie Roberts, John Cusack, Billy Crystal and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
For an awkward, self-conscious girl like Kiki, being the personal assistant to a beautiful mega-star like Gwen isn't easy. But when she dutifully accepts the task of helping Gwen and her estranged mega-star husband Eddie make it through one last public appearance masterminded by legendary press agent Lee Phillips, forever devoted Kiki finds that her job is about to get even harder. At first it seems her challenge is to keep the peace between Gwen and Eddie and their public image intact, but soon Kiki is faced with a more personal concern as her longtime friendship with Eddie begins to take a romantic turn.

"Princess Diaries" rated G
Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews starred in this comedy about a young New York girl who finds out she is a princess of a small European Country. Her grandmother comes to America to try and convince her to return as princess of her country, she is the only heir. Most of the funny situations were in the previews. Age for this movie is about 7 years to 14 years.
"Planet of the Apes" rated PG13
Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. Special effects were great; thought the first planet movie is still the best. Mark Wahlberg and Tim Roth also star in this movie with lots of action. The movie has a familiar plot; an astronaut crashes on the Planet of the Apes, is captured, and plans his escape.

Don't Say A Word

"Don't Say A Word" rated R
What a good thriller. Confusing at first; which makes you wonder how they will tie it all together.
Preeminent New York psychiatrist Dr. Nathan Conrad has a successful practice, a beautiful wife and a charming daughter. Making his way home for the Thanksgiving holiday, Conrad is summoned by a colleague to examine a young woman. Elisabeth Burrows presents a history of unexplained violence, failed treatments and misdiagnoses. In short, the kind of case Nathan used to live for before he went 'uptown.' Now he is Elisabeth's last chance before she is shipped off to a state institution. Nathan's skills and intuition begin to make headway into Elisabeth's case. Little does Nathan suspect that Elisabeth is tied to a danger that has closed in on him and his family. Nathan's daughter has been kidnapped by ruthless thieves, and to save her he must somehow unlock a 6-digit number locked away in Elisabeth's troubled mind. With his daughter's captors watching his every move, Nathan is constantly reminded: if he wants to see his daughter alive, he dare not say a single word.
This movie is along the lines of "Rear Window" and Fatal Attraction" meaning lots of action.

A cop thriller starring Denzel Washington as a REALLY evil cop, Sgt. Alonzo Harris, hardened by the years of catching criminals. This is his most evil role yet, but he does an excellent job.

Their operation is running smoothly until they have an unexpected run-in with Kate, who is drawn to the thieves as a way to escape her ordinary life. Together Joe and Terry are the most successful bank robbers in U.S. history. To Kate, they also combine to make the perfect man. Things get more complicated when the police and media assume that Kate is their hostage and organize a massive manhunt to save her from the clutches of Joe and Terry.
A cross between bonnie and clyde and butch cassidy and the sundance kid. Written by Harley Peyton and directed by Barry levinson this is a must see.

Lots of laughs with a good cast of; Cuba Gooding Jr, Whoopie Goldberg, and John Cleese. You might want to see this one.

Takes place in 1945 off the coast of England. Nicole Kidman stars in this thriller. Her two children, played by James Bentley and Alakina Mann (by the way excellent acting), live with her in a secluded house and acquire 3 servants. The children claim the house is haunted and say they have seen the ghosts. Really slow but the ending is really a surprise.
First English language by Alejandro Amenabar and produced by Tom Cruise. Not one of favorites!!

From Hell
No official site
"From Hell" rated R
The old tale of Jack the Ripper; this movie stars Johnny Depp, Heather Graham and Robbie Coltrane. Depp plays an opium addicted detective who investigates the murders of prostitutes in London, and has visions of the ones who are killed. The special effects are awesome but a little slow and hard to follow in the beginning. Are they covering up the killer because he is royalty?? This movie is based on the novel by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell and directed by the Hughes brothers.
The Glass House "The Glass House" rated pg-13
Like this move also; a thriller starring LeeLee Sobieski. The brother and sister are orphaned and the guardians are old neighbors. Of course, they live in a glass house and their name is glass....Lots of tension in the house, he owes money and she is a drug addict so basically they want the children's' money. The tension builds slowly but you don't know until the end who really killed who.

No official site
"The Last Castle" rated R
Like this movie also; a little unrealistic for prison life (a cross between Brubaker and Shaw Shank Redemption) but lots of action. This movie revolved around a prison for Service men convicted of crimes in the military. The prison overseer (James Gandolfini) is power hungry, mean, and conniving. Robert Redford becomes a friend and leader of the prison and they try to overthrow Gandolfini) lots of action and of course Robert Redford is always good. Steve Burton plays Lt. Peretz and a slow inmate who wins your heart.
Riding in Cars With Boys
No official site
"Riding in Cars With Boys" rated pg-13
A movie based on the autobiographical novel by Beverly D'Onofrio it takes you through her life from 1961 - 1986. It stars Drew Barrymore as Beverly who becomes a mother at 15 married to a high school dropout Ray (Steve Zahn). She feels her life is over, she always wanted to write for a newsspaper. Her father, a policeman, is played by James Woods and her mother is played by Lorraine Bracco, they feel she is wasting her life. She soon becomes a single mother and she and her best buddy(Brittany Murphy) who by the way does an excellent job in this movie. When Bev leaves Ray, her son becomes the main man in her life. This movie is funny, sad, and romantic. Its written by Morgan Upton Ward and directed by Penny Marshall.
K-PAX
No official site
"K-PAX" rated PG-13
A mysterious mental patient Prot (Kevin Spacey) appears at Grand Central Station and claims to be an alien from K-PAX, of course he is immediately taken to a mental institution where a Dr. Mark Powell (Jeff Bridges) becomes his doctor. Overworked and not spending a lot of time with his family Dr Powell becomes entranced by Prot. Prot has the attention of all the patients on his floor, promising to take one along when he returns to K-PAX on July 27th. Also staring Alfre Woodard as Dr. Claudia Villars, Mary McCormack as Marks' wife and Aaron Paul. This movie is a little like "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Starman" also starring Jeff Bridges. Is he really an Alien?; he is believable.... so-so movie, Spacey does an excellent job but moves a little slow.
Domestic Disturbance "Domestic Disturbance" rated Pg-13
What a good "thriller", pins and needles through most of the movie. The preview did reveal a lot of the movie but it was still good. John Travolta stars as the divorced father, Frank Morrison, who is told by his son that his ex-wives new husband has murdered someone. There is not evidence or body so the police do not believe him but frank does. The new husband, Rick, is played by Vince Vaughn, the ex-wife by Teri Polo of "Meet the Parents". Of course Rick is not who he says he is, he has a record. I liked this movie, lots of dark scenes and pop outs. Directed by Terry Zwigoff and written by Daniel Clowes.
