HERE COMES THE BOOM
Kevin James stars as a teacher who will literally take a punch to save his school’s music program.
James plays Scott Voss, a teacher and former collegiate wrestler, in this comedy with a heart. Scott is a 42-year-old apathetic biology teacher in a failing high school.
When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher (Henry Winkler), Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy — most of all the school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek) — but in his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.
“Here Comes the Boom” opens nationally on Friday, including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas. 105 minutes. It is rated PG for bouts of MMA sports violence, some rude humor and language.
Ben Affleck directed and stars in a thrilling and funny true story of the CIA agents who faked shooting a movie to try to rescue American hostages.
Based on true events, this film chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis — the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. But, in the midst of the chaos of the Iranian hostage crisis, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador.
Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist, played by Affleck, comes up with a risky plan. He and his team, some of whom are actual Hollywood crew, go into Iran under the pretense of shooting a new science fiction action movie titled “Argo.”
They hope to slip the hostages out as part of the film crew. Affleck also directed the film and maintains the edge-of-your-seat tension and humor throughout the story as the team tries to bluff and trick its way to safety and freedom.
“Argo” opens today nationally, including at the Luxury 5 Cinemas. 120 minutes. It is rated R for language and some violent images.

Bryan then employs his unique tactics to get his family to safety and systematically take out the kidnappers, one by one.
