Making its debut this weekend on Showtime was last year’s “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”, starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt.
“Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” tells the story of two people involved in trying to introduce salmon to the Yemen River, at the behest of a wealthy Sheikh in the region. McGregor plays a an expert who initially decries the effort as unfeasible, but who slowly comes around to the possibility. He and Blunt have to work through the difficulties of both the project and their romantic lives.
It’s a lightweight little movie that won’t ask much of you over its runtime, but its optimism, combined with the charm of the leads, make it an enjoyable watch.
Bryan Singer and New Line Cinema take an ancient fairy tale and use it as a jumping-off point for a modern, CGI loaded action movie. Unfortunately, it suffers from a lot of the same issues that other modern, CGI loaded action movies do. Namely, it has a weak script, occasionally sketchy visuals, and plenty of “green screen acting”.
It will most likely appeal to children, but for discerning adults, “Jack” won’t have much to offer.

YES! We made it through the Winter Movie Season, where Hollywood unloads their junk on us, and now we’re headed into the Spring!
Spring is a time for mini-blockbusters, and movies that Hollywood hopes will have decent runs. Last year, “The Hunger Games” was released in March, for example, and we all saw how well that did!

“The Impossible” is based on the true story of one family’s experience during the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004.
It was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history. Over 230,000 people lost their lives.
This film will place you squarely in the center of that event.

The latest film from Director Steven Soderbergh (“Traffic”, “Erin Brokovich”, “Contagion”) and the first for MMA superstar Gina Carano hit theatres this weekend. “Haywire” is the story of a double-crossed secret agent on the run from her agency. Set up and sold out, she’s on the run and out to get revenge against those who wronged her.
Sound hackneyed? Been there, done that? Well, it is to a certain extent. With the exception of the fact that it features a female action lead, “Haywire” certainly isn’t out to blaze any new trails.
What it does do is feature first class directing, an excellent cast from top to bottom, and incredible fight sequences. This movie could wind up being the debutant party for future action heroine Gina Carano.
