What's Hot at the Movies and on DVD

This weeks reviews of whats hot at the movies and on DVD!

Season of the Witch
    A really enjoyable, entertaining watch! The acting,settings and atmosphere were excellent! I thought the only let down in this otherwise super show was the special effects and end fight scenes. They could have made this a nine instead of an 8.5. I feel a big screen viewing may also have pushed it to a nine. All characters were played well but it was really the feeling that you were in 1350 that made this movie a highly recommended 
watch.Top movie to get lost in for a couple of hours.

The Town

This is another good show! Ben Affleck does a great job with his maiden directing effort. Excellent acting and good story. Maybe it loses a little in the final shootout scenes but otherwise  a good watch. It always kept you interested throughout, with a great connection between Afleck and Rebecca Hall who both played excellent roles. I give it  a 7.5.

True Grit
    I am not really a western lover but this was a excellently made show. I am giving it a 6.5! You will probably find western fans giving it a nine but its just not for me. All roles were played well with Jeff Bridges probably the standout in the lead role! The young lady who plays Mattie Ross, Hailee Steinfeld also does a super job. A great story helps, as many will remember it from The Dukes original back in the late 60's.
