STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own
organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to
Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal
score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt
to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring
those responsible to justice.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and
death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart,
and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left:
plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission,
with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney). But on a seemingly
routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving
Stone and Kowalski completely aloneótethered to nothing but each other
and spiraling out into the blackness.
The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to EarthÖand
any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats
away at what little oxygen is left.
But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying
expanse of space.
THE GREAT AND POWERFUL
kind of how I felt myself when we arrived at Oz and maybe thatís why I
was blinded. There are some not so favorable opinions floating around
about this film and I just donít agree. Sure this film is far from
perfect in script, story, and maybe even performance but letís put
this in perspective. First of all, itís an extremely tough act to
follow, or in this case precede. Secondly, the film seems to be made in
such a way to attract an adult audience and at the same time be simple
enough for kids to enjoy. I do believe the film to be kid friendly as
well as adult friendly in an attempt to harvest a new crop of Oz fans.
When I was a kid I had nightmares starring the Wicked Witch but I still
loved the movie. I think this movie can bring more generations to the
wonderful world of the Wizard; after all it has been quite a while since
weíve gotten a glimpse. This is a well made prequel with an
interesting and cute story that will charm you. Undoubtedly the best
aspect of this film is the visual feast we are treated to. (See it in
3D). It is more than mesmerizing, it is hypnotizing..

HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE
Ah, hope for the people, could it be
the dawn of a revolution!? But at what cost, and everyone looking to a
very confused young warrior as their source of inspiration? Could this
be really happening? Can this actually work? The epic continues, the
plot thickens, and Katniss is facing even more pain and suffering along
with just about everyone around her in one way or another. After being a
co-winner of the 74th Hunger Games, she comes home to find herself with
a case of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), and a people who have
found hope and courage through her rebellious and non-conformist ways.
Unsure how to best handle this, being pulled on one side by her people
and on the other side by President Snow bombarding her with threats, she
is thrust right back into the 75th Hunger Games, Special Edition.
Haymitch best sums it up with two pieces of advice for Katniss

DESPICABLE ME 2
Universal Pictures and Illumination
Entertainmentís worldwide blockbuster Despicable Me entertained
audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and
becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history. In
summer 2013, get ready for more Minion madness in Despicable Me 2. Chris
Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy
adventure featuring the return of (former?) super-villain Gru (Steve
Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions...and a
host of new and outrageously funny characters.
The time is the roaring 20s. The place
is none other than New York, Long Island specifically. The who is pretty
obvious. The what could be considered an obsession perhaps. The how is
all about the Benjamins baby . . . money. The why is the same reason for
so much in life, love. Many of us read this story in High School, but to
be honest, I hardly remember a full sentence. What I do remember is that
it is a good story written by a good author. After seeing this film, it
just confirmed the fact. Now the movie is listed as an adaptation of the
novel so it might not be exactly like it, although I would have to say
that it does it justice. What a literary work it is. It is a love story
and a tragedy. It is larger than life and grandiose, and yet takes you
to the core of human passion and desire.
