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

How often have you seen the results of a horrible natural disaster on the news and said, “I can’t imagine what it would be like to experience that”. With the sheer number of disasters the world has seen lately, we are sure its been once or twice.

A true story is told surrounding the survival of a family of five who are caught in a Tsunami while on vacation.

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.




Definitely worthy of a FULL price ticket

OK everyone, get your pin and paper out because your getting ready to be told a historic story that changed the United States forever.

As President Lincoln struggles to deal with the reality of the Civil War, he pushes his political party and a few others to approve the 13th amendment so that slavery can be abolished.

Bravo! Bravo! Daniel Day-Lewis who played Abraham Lincoln, did an outstanding job portraying who some believe to be one of the greatest presidents the United States has ever had. We thought we knew a lot about this era from our studies throughout life, but either we weren’t paying attention or sometimes a visual picture is better than words.

Its a little long and there aren’t any sex scenes or car chases to keep your heart pumping, but the actors were outstanding and the storyline was intriguing and informative. You won’t be dissapointed and if you have some kids who need a study session in history this is the film to take them too.
