Nanny McPhee

Nanny McPhee is a slightly darker and charming take on Mary Poppins. Emma Thompson plays the visually repulsive nanny who is now the eighteen nanny to be tasked with straightening out the unruly tykes. As the children soften and change so does the appearance of Nanny McPhee. Sans the Disney touchy-feely moments, this is a good family movie that parents and children will both enjoy.

Underworld: Evolution

Kate Bekinsale is back as Selene in the continuing saga of the war between the Vampires and the Lycans. This time around we learn that the two species are in fact descendents of the same siblings and the action takes off just after the events of the first film. Kate still looks great in the skin-tight leathers and kicks werewolf butt as gracefully as ever. A great follow up to a film that dared to twist the stale and over-done vampire/werewolf mythos on its ear and in to something a bit cooler that stills packs a bite. If you can't see it on the big screen, definately check it our on DVD.

Eli Roth's follow-up to 2002's Cabin Fever follows the adventures of three friends who are backpacking across Europe when they are waylayed at a local hostel that seems to be every horny teenagers wetdream come true until they each start to go missing. Jay Herneandez dishes out a revenge sequence that is the best I have ever seen placed on film. This film is not for everyone and the torture sequences are gruesome and gory. The return of splatter horror is here with this film and should be considered a preview of the type of horror films that will be hitting our theaters by the bucket load in the future.
