Starring: Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Andie MacDowell and Dennis Quaid
Directed by: Craig Brewer

Writer/Director Craig Brewer (“Hustle & Flow,” “Black Snake Moan”) delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, “Footloose.” Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.

Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart.

DreamWorks Pictures’ “War Horse,” director Steven Spielberg’s epic adventure, is a tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. “War Horse” begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets—British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter—before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.

The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse—an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. “War Horse” is one of the great stories of friendship and war— a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is arriving on Broadway next year. It now comes to screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull DVD Review

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008


Indiana Jones

When the news came out that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were teaming up again for another Indiana Jones, fans from around the world exploded of excitement knowing that the ultimate action adventure hero was coming back, but at the same time there was sense of worry that the new film would not meet the standards of previous installments of the franchise. I’m just here to tell you that nineteen years after ” The Last Crusade” Indiana Jones is back in “The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. Bringing back the mystery, the action, the adventure and comedy that will show movie goers the excitement of a true action adventure film.

Going into the film, like many Indiana Jones fans there were some things that I was looking forward to see in this new chapter of franchise. What would be the feeling watching the film? Would I believe I’m watching an Indiana Jones movie? Those question were answered 20 minutes into the movie. It was very relaxing to see that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg did not try to deviate from what has made Indiana Jones an iconic action adventure hero.

In terms of special effects like it was expected they have evolved. The old stun scenes are gone and the used of CGI is more evident in this new installment, This innovative technology gave Lucas and Spielberg the ability to create more impressive scenes. Don’t get me wrong I don’t want to diminished the special effects from the previous films, but it was nice to see an Indiana Jones movie made with use of new computer technology. The signature of Lucas can be easily appreciated in some of the scenes. Like the car chase scene around the cliff of the mountain. So don’t expect to see to many regular stuns like the old days.

The approach taking by Lucas and Spielberg when it came to the character creation and casting for the “Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” was just what the fans were hoping and that we haven’t seeing since “Raiders of the Lost Ark”. Bringing back Karen Allen character was something that was missing in “The Last Crusade” and Temple of Doom”. She was part of what gave “Raiders of the Lost Ark” special flavor, But the ice on the cake was Cate Blanchett who played in my opinion the best villain of the franchise. It was amazing to see her transformed into a Russian leader. The only worry that I had with the casting was the idea of having Shia LaBeouf in the film as Indiana sidekick. I didn’t want to see another annoying “Temple of Doom” Short Round, but since the beginning is very clear that he it is not.

This 2 Disc Edition of the film is loaded with special features, with the bests of all being the “Pre-Production” and “Production Diary” featurettes. Some people will be disappointed because of the lack of commentaries.

Release Date: October 14, 2008
