Savages (2012)

Being that I enjoy Oliver Stone pictures, I decided to check this one out. Lately, I have been on the hunt for good movies to watch from my favorite directors. This film did not disappoint at the end but was a bit slow in the beginning. (Note: A good friend of mine in the film industry once told me that if I enjoy a director’s style and types of movies that in general I will probably enjoy their future work. I know this may not be the case all of the time but for me it has been for most of Read more [...]

Lawless (2012)

Recently, I had the chance to see this movie. Unfortunately, I missed it when it first came out. Being that I enjoy historical films, I was really looking forward to this one based on a true story. To say the least, it did not disappoint. The focus of this film was really on the main family, the Bondurant brothers, who ran a successful moonshine business during the days of Prohibition. Their business was very local as they serviced the whole community. Like all good things, there were Read more [...]

The Avengers (2012)

Let me just say, I’ve never considered myself much of the comic book type. In fact, I don’t remember the last comic book I’ve read. Though, I will say – I do consider a good film from time to time based on a good comic. And, let me just say – this film was definitely worth it.

“Still armed. Still dangerous. Still got it.”- Red When I first saw the trailer to this movie, I knew it was a film I wanted to see.
