Full of explosions, machine gun fire and hand to hand combat, all in support of an absolutely preposterous scenario, “Olympus Has Fallen” offers us big dumb summer movie fun in the first days of Spring.

YES! We made it through the Winter Movie Season, where Hollywood unloads their junk on us, and now we’re headed into the Spring!
Spring is a time for mini-blockbusters, and movies that Hollywood hopes will have decent runs. Last year, “The Hunger Games” was released in March, for example, and we all saw how well that did!

With a handful of funny segments mixed in throughout its lineup of gross-out vignettes, “Movie 43” isn’t half as bad as I had thought it would be.
Of course, considering that I had expected it to be a sign of the apocalypse, that’s not actually saying much.

A washed up ex-soccer pro tries to reconnect with his young son by coaching his soccer team. Along the way, he also tries to break into a new line of work (sports casting) and win back his ex-wife.
Standing in his way are an army of poorly written, badly acted, hornier than any person ever soccer moms.
What’s a poor family rom-com hero to do?

“Chasing Mavericks” is a biographical movie which centers around the true story of how 16 year old surfer Jay Moriarity attempts to brave the 25 foot plus high waves of Maverick’s at Pillar Point Harbor, in Northern California. In order to do so, he’ll need to get coaching from a neighbor who actually surfs the spot. Along the way, the two form a familial-strength bond.
“Mavericks” gets a bit out of its depth, trying to cover dramatic material from the characters’ lives, but it’s not a total wipeout. There’s plenty of incredible surfing, and a decent portrait of the undeniable drive that motivates extreme athletes.
