CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.

Here is the synopsis for “The Last Stand”:
Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in Korean director Jee-woon Kim’s hard-hitting U.S. directorial debut “The Last Stand”.
After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega) – the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere – makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.
With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing toward the U.S./Mexico border at 250 miles per hour in a specially outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement – including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) – will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever.
At first reluctant to become involved and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small-town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands. This sets the stage for a classic showdown.
