Movie 1: The Out-Laws
This is a comedy about a dim-witted bank manager who meets his bank robbing in-laws. There are some funny moments and it’s fun to see Ellen Barkin and Pierce Brosnan in comedic roles, but overall the movie is just OK. On Netflix.
Movie 2: Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One
This is an action packed spy thriller that does not disappoint. The cinematography is stunning. As usual Tom Cruise does most of his own stunts. There is a runaway train scene that is fantastically over the top. Sit back and enjoy the ride. Hope Part Two gets here quickly!
Movie 3: The Miracle Club
This is a charming little movie set in 1967 Ireland. Three friends win a church contest to go to Lourdes, France. It’s wonderfully old fashioned in its outlook, naiveté, clothes and sets. Won’t win any awards, but an enjoyable movie with three A-list actresses.
