Black Snake Moan – Starring: Samuel L Jackson, Christina Ricci, Justin Timberlake Plot Outline -A God-fearing bluesman (Jackson) takes to a wild young woman (Ricci) who, as a victim of childhood sexual abuse, looks everywhere for love, never quite finding it. Well it takes a while to get what the movie is about as well as accustomed to the southern drawl and Jazzy Blues but still a good movie. Samuel and Christina does a great job with their flawed characters.
The Number 23 – Starring: Jim Carrey, Virginia Madsen, Logan Lerman, Danny Huston. Plot Outline -Walter Sparrow becomes obsessed with a novel that he believes was written about him. As his obsession increases, more and more similarities seem to arise. In the beginning of the movie I felt that Jim should have stucked to his roles as a comedian, but as the film progressed both he and Virginia should be credited for their strong performances. This movie in my opinion is not a great film but a good one to watch because of the storyline.
High School Musical – Starring: Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel,Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman. Plot Outline – Troy and Gabriella – two teens who are worlds apart – meet at a karaoke contest and discover their mutual love for music. Okay so I may be one of the remaining few who actually caught it, besides I wanted to see what all the rave was about. I must say I enjoyed immensely! The starting of the movie reminded me a lot of Grease albeit a much younger cast. A definite must watch for all you musical fans! I am now a fan of this uprising and versatile young actor Zac Efron, I remembered him from the movie Miracle Run in which he played one of two autistic brothers.
Wild Hogs – Starring: John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence,William H.Macy, Ray Liotta, Marissa Tomei. Plot Outline -A group of suburban biker wannabes looking for adventure hit the open road, but get more than they bargained for when they encounter a New Mexico gang called the Del Fuegos. I’ve already watched it at the movies, but I just had to watch it again! This movie appeals to me on so many levels…hee hee I’m seriously considering buying it!
Red Riding Hood (2004) – Starring: Lainie Kazan, Morgan Thomson,Joey Fatone,Sam Stone, Daniel Roebuck. Plot Outline – A classic tale with some modern magic! Sheesh! It’s definitely a movie for 4-6year olds. The Virtual Sets looked okay but the script?! Yikes! This is one movie which the adults would rather just hit play and do housework!
Open Season (Animated Cartoon Movie) – Voices Of: Martin Lawrence,Ashton Kutcher,Gary Sinise,Debra Messing,Billy Connolly and more . Plot Outline – Boog, a domesticated 900lb. Grizzly bear finds himself stranded in the woods 3 days before Open Season. Forced to rely on Elliot, a fast-talking mule deer, the two form an unlikely friendship and must quickly rally other forest animals if they are to form a rag-tag army against the hunters. Kids Love it! Me Too! ha ha
Pathfinder (Extended Version) – Starring: Karl Urban, Moon Bloodgood,Russell Means,Clancy Brown. Plot Outline -A Viking boy is left behind after his clan battles a Native American tribe. Raised within the tribe, he ultimately becomes their savior in a fight against the Norsemen. This movie is like a few others mixed together, 13th Warrior, Dances with Wolves and Apocalypto. It is full of gore and very little dialog, less in English. Storyline is okay, but I must say I expected a whole lot more in terms of screenplay and cinematography!
