bagmanTHE BAG MAN – WOULD YOU PASS THE TEST

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!

THE HOBBIT

THE HOBBIT – FULL OF ADVENTURES

Get your gold and shell it out for a prime time ticket

Due to the sheer title of the movie we expected a few adventures out of this film, but boy did we underestimate our prediction.

Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) is recruited by a Wizard and some driven Drawves to go on an unexpected journey, as they try to reclaim their mountain which was stolen by a dragon named Smaug.

This film, almost 3 hours of it, is filled with adventure after adventure and with every one of them, you get drawn in more and more just to see what is going to happen next.  Though the movie is long, each adventure has its own unique twist and character, so it will seem like a movie within a movie.

If you have Kids or are a fan of the Lord of the Rings series, your definitely going to enjoy this movie. Grab your closest dwarf and head to the theater and purchase your prime time tickets today.

SKYFALL

SKYFALL – BACK TO THE BASICS

Come on its James Bond. Pick Up The Full Price Ticket

We expected greatness and that’s exactly what we got.

James Bond is tested as he shows his allegiance to M who is under attack from a prior agent who is out to kill her.

In our eyes this Bond experience was different than prior versions and we liked it. Why might you ask? Well as we stated above, its as if writers Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Ian Fleming and John Logan decided to get back to the basics. There weren’t any fancy gadgets specially made for bond. The sexy bad girl wasn’t the focus of the film and they even brought back an oldy but goody. You will see what we are talking about when you check out the film.

Although all of this was stripped from the movie, this bond film was as good or better than previous versions. What’s not missing is his smooth style. He is still Bond, James Bond!

What are you waiting for. Get to the theater!
