Here's a trailer and reviews of the movie starring Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman. It's playing at Tucker's Movie Tavern.
There are people around who remember when Jackie Robinson entered major league baseball by joining the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. My father was one of them. As someone for whom ability trumped race, Daddy talked about Robinson's skills as a first baseball, a hitter, and most of all, his incredible speed and wily base stealing. He also mentioned the vile, violent reaction many people had to a black man desegregating white baseball. Academy Award winning screenwriter Brian Helgeland directs "42," a baseball biopic about Jackie Robinson during his first season with the Dodgers. The subtitle is "The Story of an American Legend," and it rings true, because Robinson was. He was recruited by Dodgers owner Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) and told not…

It's showing at the Movie Tavern in Tucker.
The luminous Halle Berry shows once again why she is an Oscar-worthy actress - even a poor script and a mishmash of a plot can't diminish her. The idea for "The Call" is very cool: a 911 dispatcher Jordan (Berry) gets a call from a teenager Casey (Abigail Breslin) who finds herself in a car trunk, speeding along an L.A. freeway with the psycho who kidnapped her. Jordan talks and talks to Casey, trying to calm her down and find out where she is. Which, eventually, they do. They find Casey in a dripping basement with the kidnapper... and a less-than-satisfying ending. Here's what the critics are saying: "The Call" effectively taps into primal fears only to serve up a deflating bit of intended catharsis. On the way, it stoops to "a-ha" …

The "Resident Evil" franchise is back with a fifth movie. There is plenty of action, plenty of zombies, all in 3D. Simply put, it may be the best one yet.
Milla Jovovich jumps back into her role as Alice. This time, she is trapped inside a compound making this a great rescue mission, as she tries to escape the land of zombies in "Resident Evil: Retribution." Fans of the franchise will love the resurrection of some familiar actors from other Resident Evil movies, along with some new ones. This film feels more like a video game than previous films because Alice has to go through different levels to escape. The acting, overall, is not that great. But, really, fans of the franchise aren't there for that. It's all about the action, and there is plenty of it. The Moscow scene involving a Rolls-Royce car chase and Russian zombies was perhaps my favorite. But I digress. Die-hard fans of the series …

Spider-Man is back swinging at the box office; it's somewhat of a reboot with different actors, a different look, and a whole lot more spidey-swagger.
Spider-Man is back, and we love it! Andrew Garfield takes over from Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker, a nerdy kid who gets bitten by a radioactive arachnid in "The Amazing Spider-Man." The film is somewhat of a reboot about the origins of Spider-Man. Parker gets bullied in school, meets a pretty girl, gets spidey powers. The family falls victim to street thugs; he becomes a superhero. It's pretty much the same storyline, just a bit grittier than the one 10 years ago. This one has more swagger, more angst and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, the new spidey love interest. This is not a total carbon copy of the original but it's basically the same storyline. Different actors, sure; a different director, sure. There is even a different bad guy; the CGI…
