Also my son Aaron's new 5 original song EP with "Tastes Like Chicken"
|Week of April 20th, 2009:
After causing a tragic accident at sea, Eben Cole loses his family, friends and stature in his island fishing community. He returns to the island an outcast but determined to win back the way of life he fought so hard to protect. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Maine coast, Islander captures the grit and integrity of this hard working community and celebrates man's unerring need for redemption. Written by Renee Tsao.
I thought a fairly well done movie, filmed on Vinalhaven Maine. It seemed true to the actions and thoughts of many Mainers, if not a bit trite. Accents weren't too good...but better than many of the movies in the past...like some of those old Stephen King movies...ouch!
Purchase at Amazon.
I would give this 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Week of March 30th, 2009:
Bad Boys with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. 1995. R.
Miami narcotics cops -- wild, single Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and mild, married Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) -- are hot on the trail of master crook Fouchet (La Femme Nikita's Tcheky Karyo), who's snatched $100 million worth of heroin. To get their only witness (Tea Leoni) to talk, Smith and Lawrence must pose as each other, swapping lives as they work the case. Michael Bay directs this explosively (literally!) fast-paced actioner.
Purhase at Amazon.
I gave it 3 stars out of 5. Fun and action packed, not groundbreaking
Con Air. 1997. R.
When the government puts all its rotten criminal eggs in one airborne basket, it's asking for trouble. Before you can say, "Pass the barf bag," the crooks control the plane, led by creepy Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom (John Malkovich). Watching his every move is the just-released Nicolas Cage, who'd rather reunite with his family. The action climaxes with an incredible crash sequence in Las Vegas.
Purchase at Amazon.
I gave this 4 out of 5. Star studded, over the top, un-realistic, but very entertaining!
