"Space Cowboys" with Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland and more. While the wife said it is a 'guys flick', it is a very good one indeed. Especially to those of u s who have watched the US space program through the years. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I saw "Moonrise Kingdom" a couple of weeks ago. A real hoot. A bunch of kids trying very hard to grow up, while the adults around them seem determined to act like children. I suppose some would call it a "chick flick," but I think it's disqualfied from that genre since the only romance is between two 13-year-olds. Great cast: Bruce Willis, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Harvey Keitel... But the kids steal the show.

Just watched this movie and have to say it was worth the wait.

Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs's classic "Barsoom Series," this sci-fi adventure finds Carter coming to the aid of Martian princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) and pitching in to help protect the planet.
