A look at videos available for rental in the Clovis area.

Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle – PG 13
Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, Demi Moore, Bernie Mac, Luke Wilson
In this second installment we find the Angels on a case that will prove more challenging than they first thought. The Charles Townsend Detective Agency is sent out to investigate the theft of two rings that hold the key to unlocking the witness protection profiles. With the murders of several witnesses, this case soon hits home, as one of the Angels is next on the list.
This sequel is just as enjoyable as the first. With its cameo’s, action, and whimsical fluff this movie is definitely worth a rental.
Grade: B

28 Days Later – R
Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris
A man awakens from a long coma to an empty room, in a vacant hospital, and in a city void of any people or so he thinks. He soon learns that a powerful virus has taken over and transformed its victims into zombie-like creatures filled with rage. Now, a ragtag group of survivors
must fight for survival with the worst yet to come.
While it is an interesting idea, the movie just doesn’t deliver. Often slow and predictable, this movie is not something I would wish on anyone. Skip this one.
Grade: D

It runs in the family – PG-13
Kirk Douglas, Michael Douglas, Cameron Douglas, Diana Douglas, Bernadette Peters, Rory Culkin
Sharing the screen for the first time, Kirk and Michael Douglas along with Michael’s son Cameron and Kirk’s wife Diana, this film depicts three generations of a New York family as they learn to handle their dysfunctional relationship.
It is really hard to say anything good about this film other than it was nice to see Kirk and Michael Douglas work together.
I just wish they would have of choose a better project. I was able to watch this movie for free and still feel like I wasted my money. Don’t waste you time.
Grade: D minus
