Run, do not walk, to your nearest video store and grab all three of the (currently) released-on-DVD movie adaptations of Robert B. Parker's Jesse Stone novels. They star Tom Selleck (a big plus in my book), and they are without a doubt in the top 10 movies I've watched all year. The movies were released out-of-sequence, so it may be helpful to watch them in proper order:
Jesse Stone: Night Passage
Jesse Stone: Death in Paradise
Jesse Stone: Stone Cold
There are apparently 2 more movies, one still waiting to be released on DVD (it was made for TV), and one being made for 2008 release. I can hardly wait.
I like movies set in small towns. I like stories about flawed characters, especially those that are struggling with their inner demons (I can relate). I like relatively realistic gunfights in movies. I like Tom Selleck. I like 1911's. Therefore, there's very little I don't like about these movies. As always, YMMV.
