DVD Weekend Playlist

  • Maria Full Of Grace– Starring Catalina Sandino Moreno, Guilied Lopez, Wilson  Guerrero, Evagelina Morales. Plot Outline – A pregnant Colombian teenager becomes a drug mule to make some desperately needed money for her family. Initially I thought it was some kind of spiritual film, but instead it was an eye opener to see the harsh realities of life and how some of the drug lords operate.  The film is in Spanish and won awards during the Sundance Film Festival 2004, Berlin Awards and more.
  • Walking Tall The Payback– Starring Kevin Sorbo, Yvette Nipar, Gail Cronauer.  Plot Outline –  A man goes back to his hometown that is now overrun with crime and single-handedly takes justice into his own hands. It was entertaining but I can’t really say I enjoyed it all that much.  I remember Bo Svenson when he acted the part of Sheriff Buford and he did a great job.  ‘The Rock’ also made him look good, but Kevin Sorbo well he was just okay to me.  Besides there is quite a fair bit of plot holes in the movie.
  •  Walking Tall : Lone Justice– Starring Kevin Sorbo, Yvette Nipar, Elisabeth Barondes, Rodrigo Del La Rosa.  Much better storyline but the fight scenes were just not that great.
  • 28 Weeks Later – Starring Cathering McCormack, Robert Carlyle, Jeremy Renner, Rose Byrne, Emily Beecham, Imogen Poots. Plot Outline- Six months after the rage virus was inflicted on the population of Great Britain, the US Army helps to secure a small area of London for the survivors to repopulate and start again. But not everything goes to plan. I didn’t realise that this was a sequel to an earlier film 28 Days Later.  I’ll admit that the zombie attack sequences were quite thrilling but other than that, this movie was a waste of time!
