This fall weekend at the movies is packing a punch. If you like action there are two new movies that will leave you sitting on the edge of your seat. First, rough and tough action stars Danny Trejo in the Robert Rodriguez sequel "Machete Kills." The other movie "Captain Phillips" is based on true events that occurred in 2009 when Somali pirates attempted to take over the U.S. cargo ship Maersk Alabama. The movie stars Tom Hanks as the ships captain who is not willing to give in to the pirate Muse. This sound like a good one... Enjoy the movies!
