American Sniper

American Sniper

Bradley Cooper plays Chris Kyle, a former rodeo rider that chose to fight for his country by joining the Navy Seals. Chris Kyle served four tours in Iraq and became to be known as The Legend for his sharp shooting sniper skills. I will not go into his confirmed kills or the bounty placed on his head by the Iraqi insurgents, but what I will talk about is his amazing story and spirit.Read More »
The Theory of Everything

The Theory of Everything

Last week, I went to see the Theory of Everything in the theater. For those of us who are hopeless romantics, we cannot help but be drawn to the film by its previews and commercials. The publicists knew how to hit that dream a little dream spot by displaying vivid images of young Jane and Stephen, played by Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne. looking fanciful into each others eyes and glaring up at the sky, hand-in-hand, mesmerized by the crystal fireworks. Though the previews foreshadowed the fight that Stephen Hawking had ahead of him and gave a tint of sadness, I could not help but be intrigued by the magic this film seemed to promise.Read More »
Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher was the movie of choice that afternoon starring Steve Carrell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum. There was only one reason I went to see this film: I wanted to see the stretch that Steve Carrell was making for his acting career. I am a huge fan of Steve Carrell, and outside The Office, I find him to be one of the funniest men in modern day comedy. I loved him in the the 40 Year Old Virgin and Crazy Stupid Love. I even loved him in the Way Way Back where he played a character that you are meant to despise from the second he opens his mouth. Then I saw previews of him in Foxcathcher where he was not recognizable at first and listened to commentary in a news segment where he was being praised for his performance. I knew before I bought the ticket that the movie was going to be about the late John Du Pont, who Steve Carell plays, and the murder of Dave Shultz, Olympic God Medalist of Wrestling.Read More »
