This week in movies… The Wolverine, Blue Jasmine, Apt 1303

07.22.2013 | By |

This is my second week writing my “This week in movies…” feature. It is a preview of the films coming out this week with their adjoining trailer and synopsis. I have to say, I’m discovering some interesting finds for you during my research. There are 11 movies being released this week and 7 of them are independent films with limited releases and/or available On Demand for home viewing. From the indie circuit, I must admit, the premises all sound worth watching, such as Drug War from Asian director Johnnie To. It’s the French Connection meets The Wire. Also The Time Being, a mystery surrounding a millionaire and an artist and Frankenstein’s Army, a movie that looks too fun to ignore.  Come back this Thursday where I’ll have my reviews of what I have seen. In the meantime, I rank the films in descending order from least anticipated to my most anticipated watch. Read More

The 7 Best July Movies to watch in theaters!

07.4.2013 | By |

With nearly 30 films in the July calendar, I was thinking of making your life easier by sifting through the garbage and choosing the very best July movies for you to see this very American month. In my professional opinion, there are only 7 movies that have the substance and entertainment value for you to invest your money free of concern. I’m sure these selections will evoke sentiments of emotion, reflection and wonder.

7. Fruitvale Station (Drama, R, Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz, Octavia Spencer) July 12th 2013
Plot: The true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident, who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family, and strangers on the last day of 2008 when cops made a mortal decision that rocked the San Francisco area and made national news.

Why you need to see it: Debuting to rave reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the gritty indie Fruitvale Station is already being talked about in Oscar conversations. Talk is The Weinstein Company fought hard to acquire it. I don’t blame them – its visceral last 30 minutes is powerful cinema. The rest of the movie has some true genuine, convincing and affecting acting from the whole cast. Get ready to see and hear more about this film come award season! Read More
