Prime Time Ticket Movie Here Folks

Charlize Theron begins the movie as a pregnant woman, Marlo, who is struggling with the challenges of being a mother and wife. As her family grows so does her vivid imagination.

The audience will watch this movie with many moments of familiarity as they emotionally join Marlo on her personal journey to juggle 2 kids, a husband, and a newborn. Along her journey, she slowly takes the time to meet and get to know Tully, a nanny referred by her brother, who becomes her life saver.  As the story ends, we discover that her family isn’t the only thing she is juggling to deal with.

This movie begins as a drama that cleverly turns into a mystery long before we know that’s what has happened.

Keep your money in your bag

If someone were to ask you to pick up a bag and deliver it without looking in it, would you be able to do it? We know! It goes against everything you’re taught! Well this is just the task that Jack played by John Cusak was asked to accomplish by his crime boss Dragna (Robert De Niro). What Jack didn’t know, was that attempting to deliver this mystery bag while waiting at a motel was going to be more trouble than it was worth.

Everything about this film from the way it was filmed, to the characters throughout was just weird and eerie. Obviously this was writer/director David Grovic intent, because it had all the right ingredients to be just that. Nothing about this film was really original, for mystery motel movies have been done in the past and lets not talk about the number of films based around mystery packages. The plot seemed to repeat itself over and over again, while some parts of the movie just seemed to be thrown in.

It wasn’t that great of a film, but if your bored looking for something to do on a rainy Saturday, grab this DVD. This just might keep you occupied. Just don’t expect too much!



Pick up a prime time ticket or two. This one is worth it.

We aren’t going to waste your time with a review, but we will say that if you want to know what its like to be caught in a Tsunami, go see this film. You will leave no-longer wondering whats that experience is like.



Prime Time Ticket Movie Here Folks

If you have listened to Jamie Foxx’s satellite radio show or read interviews given by either Jamie Foxx or Quentin Tarantino, you know that they both think highly of this complicated film. We wondered if it would be worth all the hype.

Django played by Jamie Foxx is a slave who was sold to a bounty hunter to assist in finding some wanted slave handlers. In exchange for Django’s assistance, the bounty hunter (Christopher Waltz), gave Django his freedom and offered to help him find his wife (Kerry Washington) who also was also sold as a slave.

We’ll once you get past the language and difficult scenes depicting enslaved black people, you will begin to notice why this film and its actors have received the accolades that they have. In true Quentin Tarantino fashion, he films this movie in a unique way, drawing your eye to scenes that other directors just wouldn’t do. We mentioned getting past the language used in the film, so if your familiar with Tarantino’s films (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill), you already know the kids probably should stay home. Jamie Foxx does an excellent job selling the fact that he is a slave and the other actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio who plays Calvin Candie almost steals the show with his performance as a slave owner.

This film is definitely worth a prime time ticket and worth all the trouble of finding a baby sitter.
