Hop on a bicycle and share sadness and joy, tears and humor, struggle and survival in this award-winning drama, based on the best-selling memoirs of former nurse Jennifer Worth.

You will be educated and entertained.  Don't miss this one.

Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit

"You're not just an analyst anymore. You're operational now." Jack Ryan (Pine) is a student studying in England on September 11th. That act causes him to drop out and join the military. When he is involved in an attack he thinks his career is over. During his rehab he is approached by Thomas Harper (Costner) with an offer too good to refuse. When he notices something that could bring down the entire country he is thrust headfirst into the dangerous world of the C.I.A. I was really looking forward to this movie because I liked the other four Jack Ryan movies and I am a huge Kevin Costner fan. This one did have something the others were missing though. Wall to wall action and the ability to keep you tense and wondering what will happen next. I'm not saying the others were boring because I did like them but this one really had the feel of a Bond type movie. This is also, for lack of a better term, an origin movie showing how Jack Ryan went from student to C.I.A. operative. Branagh is a great villain in this and the movie really moves quick. This is a popcorn movie but is tense and has a fully developed story that I highly recommend. Overall, in my opinion this is the best Ryan movie made so far. I give this an A-.

Son of God

Now, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament gets a larger-than life treatment in the stand-alone feature SON OF GOD. Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, the film features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects and a rich orchestral score from Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer. Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. It marks the first motion picture about Jesus' life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago.

Mr. Selfridge - Season 2



Mr. Selfridge Season 2 is the much-anticipated continuation of the British hit about the establishment of Selfridge's department store in London.  This ground-breaking series explores the lives, loves and challenges of one of London's premier stores.  Selfridge is at once lovable and irritating in his quest to build an empire.  Highly entertaining and addictive. 

 

 from Amazon.com: "Much has changed since Selfridges first opened its doors. Five years later, Europe is on the brink of war and London is enjoying one last defiant period of hedonism and decadence. Having rocked the retail world with his pioneering new store, Mr. Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) now has his sights set on joining the establishment and rebuilding his family life.

His desperate attempts to win back estranged wife Rose (Frances O Connor), are hindered by her friendship with Delphine Day, the daring and extravagant owner of a fashionable London nightclub. Tensions are also running high on the shop floor as Agnes is back from Paris, chic and successful. Not everyone is thrilled by her newfound confidence and by the sudden reappearance of her old ally Henri Leclair, who has mysteriously returned from America."
