Sylvester Stallone wrote and directed this film, which finds John Rambo living in Thailand catching snakes and running a boat service. A group of missionaries ask him to transport them to Burma so that they can bring relief to some troubled people. He refuses at first but then relents. They run into trouble getting to their location, but Rambo takes care of them. He is told that his services are no longer needed, but when the missionaries are captured, the ex-Green Beret springs into action and saves the day. The film contains action, adventure and lots of violence.

Tom Cutler (Samuel L. Jackson) is a retired cop who runs a business in which he cleans up messy crime scenes. He is called to an upscale neighborhood to clean up after a shooting.

Cutler is being set up and it's a mystery that will play itself out.

John Cusack is terrific in a film that will touch your heart.

When he is told that his wife has been killed, Stanley takes the girls on a trip to Florida. He puts up a good front, but he knows that he must tell them soon. The trip ends at a country fair instead of Disneyland, and at the fair is where reality sets in.
