Fury with Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman (October 17th 2014)

Fury epitomizes what the fighting men of World War II dealt with, fought with, and the heroes they died with during this horrifying event. This movie tells a story about war, and how the young men received combat-training to fight and kill because it became a necessary evil of do or die; while the war erupted and bellowed around them. 

To the fighting men it felt as the doors of Hell opened and each side fought as the fires and brimstone took a life of its own surrounded them. The doors of Hell stood opened for Wardaddy and his men in April 1945 as they fought for freedom for all Americans.

Fury the Sherman Tank

US Army Staff Sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt) trained and led his crew with Fury the Sherman Tank to fight against the enemy on their own ground over the enemy lines. Wardaddy’s war-harden face proved his skills rose from the action he experienced in fighting the enemy. Now his mission led him and his men into the heart and soul of Nazi Germany where the evil enemy lived. Fury protected its five member crew as they fought their way through the enemy lines.

Fury with Brad Pitt

The cold facts that Wardaddy faced with his men proved---although outnumbered they fought against a foe with weapons and ammo capable of wrapping them out in seconds. Still they stood tall and brave because of Wardaddy’s promise to keep them alive. He’s the icon of the brave Americans who fought in World War II.

A new assistant driver assigned to Wardaddy named Boyd “Bible“Swan (Shia LaBeouf) whose tender heart became a challenge to toughen and kill the enemy when needed. Wardaddy former gunner saw no target he did not eliminate and now he needed to train Bible in the middle of a war. Bible became a strong soldier who proved courage germinated in war to protect the men beside him.

These dirty, hungry, fatigued and sadden men remained on a mission nearing the end of the war, but his brave men Norman “Cobb” Ellison (Logan Lerman), US Army Cpl. Trini “Gordo” Garcia (Michael -Pena), Grady “Coon Ass” Travis (Jon Bernthal) knew Wardaddy would do what he commanded other to do. You get action and drama in this war film and see how men lived and fought while protecting our freedom.

This movie is a winner for an Oscar for the Best Film category. In my opinion, this is Brad Pitt’s best movie since Legends of the Fall. 

David Ayers wore many hats as director, writer and producer; he performed brilliantly and I want to make sure I see more of his movies. This movie had the best people working behind the scenes as their hard work and creative touch is proof in the film.

Kill the Messenger with Jeremy Renner, Michael Sheen and Mary Elizabeth Winstead---Premiere October 10th 2014

A movie based on a true story of the life of an American; Gary Webb, a Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist whose investigation of the men and the government responsible for the crack cocaine epidemic that spread through our nation. This is his account of what happened as much as a movie can depict a man’s search for the truth when he is no longer alive; to verify how closely the movie is to the truth. Kill the Messenger adapted from his book: Dark Alliance.

Kill the Messenger

Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) an investigative reporter for the San Jose Mercury News searched for the truth and found it. It begins with the CIA backing the Nicaraguan Contras; allowing their smuggled cocaine into the United States then given to certain gangs that processed and sold it as crack cocaine to the south central area streets of Los Angeles in the 1980s. Then, the Contras received the profits for their fight against reconstruction of their government in Nicaragua.

Allegations increased that the US Government along with other agencies are responsible for the epidemic of crack cocaine that explored through the black communities of our nation.

Gary told his friend Fred Weil (Michael Sheen) his story was a true story that needed telling. And, Michael replied: Some stories are just too true to tell. Michael also told him it was dangerous.

When asked by Ronnie Quail (Robert Patrick): You believe in conspiracy theories Gary? Gary said I believe in conspiracy yes, there’s no theory about it. Many were too afraid to believe his story because then people did not view their opinions openly as they do today.
How Crack Funded a CIA War: Gary Webb Interview

I will be happy when this movie premieres on October 10th, 2014 I will be in line to see it. Always remember to research both sides of any story---because truth can sometimes read like fiction.

Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo and Bill Paxton (October 31st 2014 USA)

Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) desperately needed a job; but none existed for him. He wanted to improve his career status, but it began to look hopeless. Until driving home late at night he saw police cars and reporters at an accident where someone was badly hurt.

Lou noticed an aggressive videographer Chris Day (Bill Paxton) in the middle of all the mayhem taking shots of the gruesome scene; while two policemen pulled the victim from a burning car before it exploded . He was captivated and tried to get a job with Chris Day, but Chris rudely shut the van door in his face. He clearly did not want to share his exclusive film of the accident.

Nightcrawler Premiere on October 31st 2014 in USA

This however, did not stop Lou from perusing what he knew would be a great career move. He knew the city shines brightest at night and proved rewarding too. He needed a video camera and a police radio; and hired a young guy named Rick (Riz Ahmed) as the second photographer. 

Lou and Rick join the Los Angeles Nightcrawlers, a group of photographers/videographers who make their money off the misery and deaths of others. It is a sleazy business being a crime journalist; taking photos of murders, victims, robberies, traffic accidents, fires, home invasion and any pandemonium happening.

After the first time arriving at a scene before the police, Lou recalled how a kid felt at Christmas opening the gifts he wanted. And, this gave him a career move idea. Lou and Rick arrived on the scene before the police did, and filmed it. Not caring if he disturbed the crime scene or not.

The City Shines Brightest at Night

Lou became super encouraged when Nina (Rene Russo) a television news network manager told him to call her when he had something. And, the nights in L.A. would never be the same because Lou was on the crime scenes before the police and sometimes before the criminals left the crime scene. His life of Nightcrawling became an obsession and very profitable.

Nina wanted more from Lou and she demanded something earthshattering so viewers stayed tuned to her network. Nina the opportunist pushed the Nightcrawler trailblazer to bring her a spectacular film so she surpassed all her competitors.

This movie opens in the USA October 31st and illuminates the screen with all the super action and blazing mayhem for the movie fans.

The November Man with Pierce Brosnan, Eliza Taylor & Olga Kurylenko

The November Man

Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) deserved a peaceful retirement after working for the CIA as an operative for many years. His skills were exceptional and synonymous only with his apprentice training of many pupils.

Anyone lucky enough to be his pupil always had the advantage over other spies and operatives. So with deep thought and consideration the CIA paid Peter a visit and requested his services back into the CIA Agency immediately.

One little detail the CIA neglected to tell him----which was one of his training lessons---know your nemeses when you start after the same target. Peter taught everything to his pupils to protect them in this business of spying. And, when he found out his nemesis was his former protégé David Manson (Luke Bracey) and now his rival---Peter was prepared for the challenge.

What happens when the well experienced older operative’s opponent is his younger self; who was energized, with super-fast reflexes, and knew the answer---while his rival was thinking of the question? The agility of Peter Devereaux proved still intact and well-oiled.

Now two human cannons would be firing at each other as they start their assignment, which involves top officials of the CIA and a Russian who is aspiring to be president.
Will Peter save Alice Fournier (Olga Kurylenko) from harm? Will Sarah (Eliza Taylor) be an ally for 

Peter or David? We will see all our answers when the movie premieres August 27, 2014. I cannot wait to see Pierce Brosnan in action once again----it has been too long.

S.W.A.T. with L.L. Cool J, Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Farrell & Michelle Rodriguez

The S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons And Tactics) team is sent to The Valley Trust Bank where shots were fired; they encountered a robbery gone badly with hostages inside. And, an ongoing gun battle in front of the bank with the robbers positioned by the get-away car. S.W.A.T. members are placed on top of the building to enter from the ceiling. Jim Street (Colin Farrell) and Brian Gamble (Jeremy Renner) partners entered into the bank.

Jim Street’s Navy SEAL background prepared him for any assignment the S.W.A.T. team faced; he is calm under stress and well trained in tactical maneuvers

With the outside robbers killed and only two remained inside the bank---the robbers panicked---one robber grabbed a woman and used her as a shield. Brian fired and accidentally hits the woman, then he killed the robber; while Jim killed the other one. The bank is secured for the other hostages to leave, while Jim comforts the woman who was shot by Brian until the EMT’s arrived.

Captain Fuller of California’s LAPD Metro Division (Larry Poindexter) demoted both Jim and Brian off the and, sent them to work in the gun cage. Brian resigns after he told his captain off and tried to hit him. Fuller tried to get Jim to turn on Brian and promised him back on the team if he did. Jim would not do it.

Brian’s hot temper caused him to confront Jim about staying because he was leaving. Jim had not agreed with Brian about shooting the woman in the bank robbery. 

They agreed to disagree, after being partners for five years--- Brian leaves after slamming Jim’s head into a mirror, and Jim goes to the gun cage with hope of a chance to return to the S.W.A.T. team in the near future.

The famous ‘Hondo’ aka Sergeant Daniel Harrelson (Samuel L. Jackson) is called in to help re-organize the S.W.A.T. team. Hondo’s experience is “Old School” and he does it with professionalism---and sometimes his way.

The Chief of Police wanted Hondo to put together a young team trained to get the job done---Hondo’s way. He needed to recruit three to fill the order of the five new trained S.W.A.T. members; he already had T.J. McCabe (Josh Charles) and Michael 'Boxer' Boxer (Brian Van Holt).

Hondo asked Jim to be his driver while he recruited. He recruited Deacon ‘DeKe’ Kay (LLCool J) and Chris Sanchez (Michelle Rodriguez). Then, he asked Jim to fill the last opening and he told Hondo that Fuller would never approve it.

Fuller did approve it and so Hondo's team is completed. Then, the action begins as a French Drug Lord Alex Montel (Olivier Martinez) came to America to kill his uncle. And, unfortunately for him was pulled over for a broken tail light and then arrested. The LAPD received information Montel was an international fugitive with warrants out for him in 12 countries.

Alex Montel is worth billions and shouts out to the crowd and news media he will give a 100 million dollars to anyone who gets him out of prison. The rest of the movie is filled with action and mayhem. The newly trained S.W.A.T. team is put to the test of keeping the fugitive in custody. Or, will he get away? Will the team members be put in jeopardy from greed for the promised 100 million?

The Italian Job---Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton and Donald Sutherland (2003)

This is a film about a great Italian heist which takes place in Venice, Italy by a team of proficient thieves led by John Bridger (Donald Sutherland) who is a specialist safecracker and Charlie Croker (Mark Wahlberg) who is John’s protégé and also a professional thief. Charlie has been with John for many years; they enjoyed a great relationship---like a father and son.
The Plan was Flawless

John’s daughter Stella Bridger (Charlie Theron) lives in Philadelphia with a career as a vault technician and has begged her father many times to stop practicing his profession; but to no avail---there is always one more job.

All six team members are assembled in Venice to complete their last job of stealing 35 million in gold bars from Italian gangsters that stole the gold bar themselves. The other members of the team are Steve (Edward Norton), the inside man, Handsome Rob (Jason Statham) their wheelman, Lyle aka Napster (Seth Green) a computer genius and Left Ear (Mos Def) their explosive expert. The Italian job as they called it would be their last job, and everyone was already dreaming about what to do with their share.

With computerized planning, proficient timing, brilliant research and a skilled team with adaptability at a minute’s notice; the job finished on schedule.

Later Rob drove the team and the gold to the Alps close to the Austrian border where they stop to celebrate with wine; and John gave a toast praising Charlie and his excellent planning of their last job together. Everyone agreed with the words spoken by John; however, Steve had a funny look on his face. One might even conclude it was jealousy.

Stella Cracks Opens the Safe

John and Charlie walked away from the team to talk in private. The rest of the team shared their plans of what they would do with their share of the money.

The team traveled on the icy bridge to the Austrian border when suddenly a jeep came facing them---then it stopped on the bridge and the jeep behind them stopped. Before anyone could think what was happening Steve pulled a gun and pointed it to Rob’s head and told him to take his hands off the wheel. Then, John told Steve they would find him---Steve shot John three times in the chest, without blinking once.

Into the Subway

Charlie told Rob to drive and he did hitting the Jeep in front of them, then going over the railings into the freezing water. When Steve is satisfied everyone is dead---he leaves with his team of killers. John is dead and Charlie hates to leave him.

After telling John’s daughter about her father's death the team started to research and track Steve, because it is payback time. Revenge is motivated by hating and the retribution race is on for the team to find Steve.

Tube Chase

Charlie paid a visit to Stella to let her know they found Steve in Los Angeles and an informant said he sold a couple of gold bars to a dealer. He told Stella the team would be in LA after Steve, and asked if she wanted to help them. Charlie said he needed her skill on safecracking. He told her it was not about the money that John was like a father to him too.

Stella initially said no, but changed her mind and called Charlie to tell him she was in. She wanted to see Steve’s face when he was caught; and lost his precious gold.

They arrived in Los Angeles and began to work their plan against Steve. Steve would have other issues in the end bigger than the team’s punishment; because Steve killed Yevhen (Boris Lee Krutonog) the dealer that purchased the gold bars from him. Mashkov (Olek Krupa), Yechen’s cousin would revenge his death.

Transporter 3---Jason Statham, Robert Knepper & Natalya Rudakova

Frank Martin (Jason Statham) popularity and expertise put him at the top of the Transporter Pyramid; leaving him to be selective on any jobs offered him.

This action and adventure started when Frank declined a job; but referred his friend Malcom Manville (David Atrakchi) for the job. So both men were happy with the arrangement. Happy that is until an Audi A8 crashed into Frank’s living room driven by his friend Malcom. He was bleeding with his injuries and gunshot wounds. Frank called 911 to take his friend to the hospital.

After the EMT’s left with Malcom; Frank started investigating the car, which was still in his house. And, to his surprise he found a young woman named Valentina (Natalya Rudakova) who would not leave the vehicle. She explained to Frank about the bracelet around her wrist; that it explodes if she is 75 feet away from the car. And, that Malcom had one on his wrist---so Frank hurries outdoors to stop the Emergency vehicle---but was too late---it exploded. Frank is knocked out by a hired gangster and carried inside the house.

This is when Frank met Johnson (Robert Knepper) the man who hired his friend Malcom to deliver Valentina and a package to Budapest. Johnson makes Frank put on an explosive bracelet like his friend Malcom was wearing. Johnson is a sadistic man who wants to be sure both packages are delivered.

Johnson’s downfall will be not knowing Frank Martin and his vengeful ways. First, he will pay Johnson back for the death of his friend, and then he will work on him for being put in jeopardy; as well as 

How will Johnson close the box of terror he opened when forcing Frank at gunpoint to put on the bracelet, killing his friend, and placing Valentina's life in peril. Hell might be a nice place for Johnson to crawl to when Frank finishes with him.

True Detectives with Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan (TV Series)

                                                                True Detectives

This is a raw crime drama about a Louisiana serial killer; proving once again that man is the most cruel and evil animal walking on this planet. Season 1 with its eight (8) episodes immediately got my attention; because of the lives of the two Louisiana State Police Criminal Investigations Division homicide detectives---Rust Cohle and Marty Harty. And, their lives in the 17 years it took them through a Louisiana maze of bayous and smokescreens to solve this crime---when it seemed so many others were against their success of solving this ghastliest mystery. Some scenes I could not watch because of the subject matter, which is unreal to any sane person.

Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) is a husband to his gorgeous wife Maggie Hart (Michelle Monaghan) and father to two beautiful young girls who loved their daddy. He had it all---a career with a wonderful family. However, his asinine thinking that he could love two women caused him to lose his wife and children in divorce. Maggie forgave him once for being unfaithful, but when it happened again---that was the end.

Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) is a dark sad, very intelligent man who never gives up on any clue and has a method which can extract the truth from anyone especially criminals. He is a no-nonsense man with a past who indulged with alcohol to forget for a while, until again the light of day is staring him in the face.

Rust had a family once---a wife and a two year old child who, was killed in an accident. The death of their baby girl destroyed their marriage. And, now his solace is his work, it gave him motivation and in his working hours a time to be sober. His methodical and intelligent techniques seem to aggravate his bosses and others he worked with each day. If only the ones in power had listened to him earlier---years and lives might have been saved.

HMO did a fabulous job in viewing this show for all the fans of Woody and Matthew’s, and we hope they will return in Season 2.

Note: My Grandmother Knight would love this show---I remember she loved reading murder mysteries, crime and the most wanted. I will never understand how my Angelic grandmother could enjoy such books---but she did.

From Paris with Love---John Travolta & Jonathan Rhys Meyers (2010)

James Reese (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is an ambitious young aide to the United States Ambassador Bennington (Richard Durden) in France. James floats in a calm sea of dullness serving him. However, James would rather be on an assignment with the job of his passion; as a low rank secret agent for the CIA.

James is hoping to get an assignment in the CIA of a higher-level so he can prove his worth to the agency. And, just when he is enjoying being with his girlfriend---he gets a call from the CIA telling him to pick up his partner Charlie Wax (John Travolta) because he is being detained by French Customers at the airport. Because Charlie does not want to turn over his cans of his favored energy drink to them.

This was James’ first test of the assignment and after Charlie Wax called the French Airport Security Agents everything in the book and then some, he stood defiant against them, Yes,  James was shocked by Charlie's loud mouth with foul words being spit out at anyone or anything that got in this big bad CIA agents’ way. James slapped a Diplomatic Mail sticker on the bag of energy drinks. This solved the issue since the drinks were now protected from Customs.

James’ CIA handler advised him to do what Charlie Wax told him because he was on a very important assignment. Which James found out later it involved terrorist that were responsible for the death of the niece of Secretary of Defense.

Charlie Wax takes James on an action adventure of his assignment and one might describe it as a high-level CIA tutorial where killing and bombing is a big part of the lesson. This will be the beginning of James’ hard lesson on the facts of life as a CIA Operative. Will James make it to the end? Will Charlie Wax and James become friends and contacts to help each other with any future assignments they will be given?

Only after seeing the entire movie will one be able to answer all the questions one might want answers to; so buckle up this will be a ride to remember.

The Equalizer---Denzel Washington, Chloe Grace Mortez & Melissa Leo (2014)

Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) becomes tired of his very demanding life so he pseudocide himself in order to live a discreet life in Boston. With his background training of a previous black ops commando he was a trained killing machine.

He retired from being a helper to the helpless who could not defend themselves. Envision how quick his reflexes react to a sudden move from an unknown enemy or a shadow suddenly in his view.

Even on a beautiful calm sunny day lightning can strike and this is what happened when he
visited the Bridge Diner one night. Robert sat quietly sat at his table reading a book. Then, a young girl who was dressed like she was in business of a “Lady of the Night” named Teri (Chloe Grace Mortez) started a conversation with him by asking what his book was about.

He told her it was about a knight in shining armor, which she made a reply. He then told her she could be anything she wanted to be---to change her world.

Later she walked out to meet someone in a car when suddenly one of his men hits her across the face and pushed her inside. And, all of this was done while Robert watched from the window of the diner.

This is not sit right with Robert and he decided he would rescue her from the pimps who took her. So, he used his skills to find her, and then he used his skills to kill the five pimps.

He later found out from his former handler (Melissa Leo) these five men were Russian gangsters aka Russian Mafia. Robert came out of retirement to save a helpless girl, and now the Russian Mafia will be hot on his trail for revenge.

Since the Russians do not know Robert McCall’s background they are in full force to find and kill him. I am afraid they will be in for a big surprise.

I am so happy to see Denzel Washington---one of my favorite actors back in an action film. So mark your calendars for September 26, 2014 for the premiere of the Equalizer.
