12 Years a Slave : Moving, Sad, and heartbreaking because its true with great cast #movies


Wow.  12 Years as Slave was so sad, disturbing, and moving.  True stories like this always get to me, but it takes really great acting and a cast to pull this off…and it had it!  The cast was amazing and full of the best !  Chiwetel Ejiofor has been so underappreciated i think his whole career, and im happy he was perfect for the leade here.  Of course im always a fan of  Michael K. Williams (from the Wire and now in Homeland), Michael Fassbender and even Brad Pitt was in it.

Go see this now, if you are an American we owe it to ourselves to see this movie and remember what kind of history we had regardless of your race.




Carrie- Great remake! Dont listen to Critics #movies


Do NOT listen to critics on this one!  Go see Carrie, it was a good remake! Frankly it had what i wanted..cool use of powers and some good revenge !  Is it oscar worthy? no of course not.  And sure maybe a little of the acting by Chloe Moritz was a little over the top but go in with low expectations and this movie will surprise you.  Its not scary (and its not supposed to be) its more about the thriller/scifi/bloody revenge kinda thing


I wasnt a huge fan of the ending  but hope they consider a sequel

Perfect time to go see this during Halloween



Captain Phillips- Amazing true story that keeps you on edge

Tom Hanks is one of the greatest actors of all time, that goes without saying.  But when you put him anywhere near water he just shines haha

Captain Phillips was such a great movie- not only because it was a true story, but because it gave you an even sided view of the story from both the pirates perspective as well as the victims.   You almost dont want to believe this is what happened but it did!

Tom Hanks is brilliant in this, but really the leader of the pirates almost outshines him in this movie! He’s a great unknown actor.

I also loved the Navy Seals in this movie, they are such badasses!  Imagine the things they’ve done that we dont ever get to know or see a movie about!  They came in and did their job here and l loved Max Martini’s character as the Seal team leader.

This is worth seeing now!



Gravity: Wow a must see, original & def an oscar contender #movies #space

Gravity was amazing.  Lives up to all the hype. Go see it now

First of all the concept and idea itself is really unique. We’ve never gotten a movie like this..all the typical space movies are the same formula, but this is disturbingly realistic.

Its also almost only Sandra Bullock the entire time and she really carries it well!  Clooney is great in it also, but the movie really keeps you at the edge of your seat the entire time.

The visuals are breathtaking and definitely a must see


Prisoners: dark, thrilling, and keeps you guessing #movies


Prisoners was really good! It had lots of good buzz and I was hoping it would live up to the expecations and it did!

The story itself is dark and realistic for anyone that has kids or young relatives etc.. and the cast was great. Love seeing a darker side of Hugh Jackman and always a fan of Terrence Howard.


What set it apart from the usual kidnapping thriller movie formula was that it kept the audience guessing about what was going on. Lots of twists and new suspects etc


Really worth seeing now!
