Los Alamos

“All Saints” tells the true story of a small, dying congregation in Tennessee that grew by working with a refugee community to farm the church’s land.

John Corbett stars as the newly minted Reverend Michael Spurlock, sent to serve the people of a dying parish in Smyrna, Tenn., and to close it down. His wife Aimee and son Atticus have left everything, too, to go with him.

What they find is a small but hearty band of people unhappy about having their church sold out from under them.

Cinema Cindy Reviews 'The Hitman’s Bodyguard'

on September 2, 2017 - 6:36am
By CYNTHIA BIDDLECOMB
Los Alamos
 
The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a funny, but violent movie, an unlikely “bromance” between Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. Watching this film, you will not be bored.
 
But, movie lovers beware: common, vulgar epithets are overused throughout the film; many cars are hot-wired; many automatic weapons are discharged; every bullet that hits its target produces blood; the bodies, in the end, are too many to number; Interpol gets a very bad rap in this story; maverick guys with security training are the heroes.

“Wind River” is a murder mystery with hauntingly beautiful cinematography and a melancholy spirit. Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, writer of the 2016 film “Hell or High Water” and the 2015 film “Sicario”, Wind River opened Aug. 18and is already garnering high praise from film critics. (Can you hear the “Oscar buzz”?)
