9/10

Life’s about moments of impact, and how they change our lives forever. But what if one day you could no longer remember any of them? Well in this romantic drama, on a cold snowy night, Leo (Channing Tatum) and his wife Paige Breakdown(Rachel McAdams) were on their way home when they are suddenly struck by a snow plow. They both wake up dazed and confused at the hospital, but tragically, Paige cant remember her husband, or the life they built together. Leo spends the rest of the movie trying to win the love of his wife back!

I thoroughly enjoyed “The Vow“. It really puts how fragile and short life can be at times, in a romantic, yet dramatic way. This film became even more inspiring when I learned it was actually loosely based off a true story! They Vow receives a 9/10 score and is highly recommended to all ages.

What would happen if aliens came to invade earth and claim it as their own? Well as a scientist in the film “Battleship” so elegantly puts it, “If there is intelligent life out there ad they come here, it’s going to be like Columbus andBattleship Breakdown the Indians, only we’re the Indians.” Battleship is actually loosely based off the battleship board game, and is sponsored by Hasbro.

There hasn’t been a good Naval movie since “The Hunt for Red October“, so it was refreshing to watch a well done, and authentic Navy movie! The writers did a great job with character development, giving you more than enough detail to appreciate each of main characters you follow. The movie is action packed, keeping you on the edge of your seat, and with the fantastic special effects, you feel as if your a sailor in the United States Navy on board a destroyer fighting off aliens!

I decided to give this movie a 9/10 for outstanding graphics, and a plot that keeps you entertained and in suspense. Its also pretty cool and unique knowing the background of this movie came from a board game we all grew up playing!

Have you ever had to call 911? How would you feel if Halle Berry showed up to save the day?The Call breakdown

This crime thriller is based in Los Angeles, California where you will follow a 911 dispatcher named Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) go about her normal day with L.A.P.D Dispatch. Unfortunately this is no ordinary day for Jordan when she receives a horrific call that she becomes emotionally involved in and going well beyond the duties of her job.

The Call” was a reasonably good movie until the last half hour when Jordan takes the case into her own hands, out wit’s a crime scene unit, and saves the day. I originally was going to give this movie an 8, but after the ending of this movie it received a 5 for at least providing a little entertainment.

The Call is now available on DVD & Blu-ray. I do no recommend this movie for children due to violence and adult content.

Skyfall Banner

Skyfall BreakdownSkyfall is the 23rd James Bond movie filmed by Eod Productions. But by my standards ranked number one in the film series. This movie offers a healthy balance between action, drama, and the good old fashion 007 flair. It begins with a chase scene leading from foot, to car, to motorcycle, and finally a train where James Bond (Daniel Craig) and a dangerous assassin (Ola Rapace) fight over a stolen hard drive with the identity of the worlds deep cover agents loaded on it. The scene ends with Bond being shot by his partner (Naomie Harris) and falling off the train to a river below, while the assassin vanishes into the darkness of a train tunnel, hard drive still in hand.

This opening scene sets the tone for the remainder of the movie, like most 007 movies, starting with a bang. After a series of unfortunate events, and the bombing of MI6, Bond returns from the dead ready to serve queen and country. He than spends the remainder of the movie tracking down clues to who stole the hard drive and where to find them.

Through out the entire movie Bond is portrayed as old and unfit for duty; but he was anything but. Daniel Craig brought life back into the role of James Bond with his witty, yet dry sense of humor, his volatile attitude, and rigid good looks. He has breathed a breath of fresh air into the 007 series, which was refreshing after years of Pierce Brosnan’s B-Grade acting and pop diva attitude.

By far the best 007 movie filmed in decades, and arguably the best one yet. Skyfall sets up Eod Productions with a fresh start and fresh look of the 007 series with Daniel Craig as James Bond, Naomie Harris as Money Penny, and Ralph Fiennes as M. I believe Craig’s career as James Bond will rival Sean Connery‘s by popularity and longevity!

Skyfall is already on DVD & Blue-ray, defiantly on my rent/pick up list!!!
