The day started
out very pleasant for John Cale (Channing Tatum) and his daughter
Emily (Joey King) because they were going to spend the day together.
John is a
Capitol policeman and he is taking his daughter on a tour of the White House, and while
he is there he will be interviewed for a job with the Secret Service. His
aspiration has been to work for the Secret Service and to protect President
When he tells
Emily about his intentions---she is so proud of her dad---but it does not
matter to her if he is a Capitol policeman or working for the Secret
Service---but it seems to matter to her dad so she hopes he gets the job.
John goes into
the interview room leaving Emily outside waiting for him. He is interviewed by
Secret Service Agent (Maggie Gylenhaal) and she asked him
the average questions any HR Clerk would ---however---the clerk would be more
professional with interviewing an applicant. John answered the question
honestly and from his heart---as this was his dream to work here.
The she said, “You
barely maintained a C average in college.” With that said---which was very
unprofessional to me---Special Agent Todd is in the room and he snickered. The
whole interview was anything but professional.
So John tells Emily,
“I think I have a shot at it---you know how it is---they have to talk amongst
themselves.” But he knew he would not get what he aspired for---protecting
President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx).
So John and Emily
continued their tour of the White House. Suddenly---their tour is interrupted by
a powerfully armed troop of terrorist led by Stenz (Jason Clarke) to take
over the White House.
John is caught in the middle of it all
with his daughter---he fears for her and the President Sawyer. He is the only one who can help---so he escapes
from the terrorist and starts to look for the President.
Then all the actions from Hell broke loose
as he fights his way out with the President. President Sawyer can fight
also---when he has to. It opens in theaters June 28, 2013 in the USA
I cannot wait for this action packed
thriller with Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx these are two of my favorite
actors. My popcorn is ready---now bring on the film.
The Lone Wolf—J.J. McQuade (Chuck Norris) is one of
my favorite Chuck Norris movies. It is filled with drama, action, adventure and
McQuade is a Texas Ranger who works alone and uses his own
uniquely practiced skills to bring criminals to justice. He can shoot straighter than most and he uses
his martial arts as second nature---he does not need to think---he just reacts.
He believes in justice and sometimes not by the rules of his badge---but he
gets the jobs done his way.
Don’t get in his way or harm his family because he will come
after anyone who does---and it will not be pleasant. He will not be forced into
a fight---nor, will be back down from one.
One of his best scenes
After handling a gang of horse thieves and bringing the
leader in---while saving a group of young Texas Rangers who were following the
orders of their leader who lead them into the hands of the gang.
McQuade almost missed his best friend Dakota’s (L.Q.
Jones) retirement speech but he makes it in time---dusty and nasty in all
his glory. He was talking to Dakota when the Captain walked up and asked him to
come to his office.
The reason the Captain wanted him there is to show him what
was written in the newspaper about McQuade being a lone wolf---always working
alone. The Captain introduce McQuade's new partner to him---Kayo (Robert
Beltran) one of the young rangers he saved this morning.
McQuade said no way kid and then he leaves without another
word. The Captain told Kayo to stay with him. So the fun begins of having a
partner while not acknowledging him.
Kayo goes to McQuade’s home which is an isolated dump---but
he likes it. His only pet is a lone wolf he befriended---probably because they
were so much alike. This is when Kayo meets the wolf that is guarding McQuade’s
house. Kayo runs inside the house as the screen door is unlocked and sees the
mess inside the house.
meets Lola Richardson (Barbara Carrera) and they become
involved. The only issue there is a local criminal
Rawley Wilkes (David Carradine) is in love with her too. Lola's late husband was
Rawley’s partner who he killed for money and her love---and of course she does not know this---yet.
This is a very good movie and I hope you will enjoy the
videos and the review.
Unless you have lived in a cave---you know who Nora Roberts
is---she is one of my very favorite writers and I love her movies from her
Today I will talk about one of her movies titled:Midnight Bayou (2009)
This one is a bit scary but it keeps your attention to the
very end---are you ready?
Declan Fitzpatrick (Jerry O’Connell) a Boston law student was
invited by his roommate in college and best friend Remy (ChrisLindsay)
to his hometown of New Orleans; during Mardis Gras of 2001.
This is exhilarating for Declan and a group of other young
college kids as they drove through the outskirts of New Orleans. Declan was
standing up in the convertible shouting and taking picture when suddenly a
woman dressed in an antiquated maid uniform of over 100 years ago---was
standing in the road of front of the fast oncoming car.
Declan shouted stop and the driver stopped---he jumped out
of the car looking around for the woman but she had vanished---nowhere to be
seen. Then through the dead vines and trees Declan saw the house a beautiful old
dilapidated Southern Mansion.
Remy told him it was called Manet Hall---and had bad
juju. But amazingly it was love at first sight for Declan---then and there he
wanted to buy it. The house moaned and groaned and his friend Remy and his
girlfriend Effie(CieraPayton) said
come on lets go or you will be walking to Boston.
Eight years later after he has been a practicing attorney
for years---Declan leaves Boston and buys Manet Hall from Odetta Simone (Faye
Dunaway). The improvements are magnificent bringing the place back from
dilapidation to becoming just what he wanted it to be. It was absolutely
beautiful when the interior of the mansion was refurbished.
While he and workers were moving his boxes into his new home
he has a beautiful visitor Lena Simone (Lauren Stamile) the granddaughter to
Odetta Simone. Lena’s grandmother told her about the new owner Delcan
Fitzpatrick. He was engaged to be married and broke it off two days before the
wedding and came to New Orleans to buy Manet Hall.
Odetta had bake cornbread and wanted her granddaughter to
take it to the new owner. Lena finally gave in and went to Manet Hall. Odetta
told Lena if my knees were not giving me trouble and I was 20 years younger---I
would go myself and you would not have a chance.
She and Delcan were instantly attracted to each other---but
why they did not know. The movie takes the main characters back 100 years to
the spirits which initially lived in Manet Hall. It shows how everyone is
connected to the past and if the mystery of Abigail Manet (Bianca Malinowski)
is not solved then the spirits who haunts Manet Hall will haunt it forever.
The Manet family is the mother Josephine Manet (Ashley
LeConte Campbell), the oldest son who married Abigail is Lucian Manet (Alan Ritchson)
and his evil no good brother is Julian Manet (Alejandro Rose-Garcia).
Lucian truly loved his wife and his brother loved her in his
own wicked way. The mother was always trying to get rid of Abigail because she
was once one of their maids and she did not think she was good enough for her
I enjoyed this movie and I read the book also. The movie
made the book come to life for me and I am sure anyone who owns the DVD or buys
the movie will enjoy it for years.
I love all of Nora Roberts' movies and I have also reviewed
on this movie blog titled “Northern Light” and I have more to share with my
readers if you like this movie.
How brothers can despises each other? Nevertheless---Sam
Cleary (John Cena) and Leo Cleary (Ethan Embry) seen to. Maybe---later
we will find out why. And as far as their youngest brother Douglas (Boyd
Holbrook) ---neither one likes him, however neither one knows him. This
sounds like a dysfunctional family in a sea of dislike waves that washes upon
the family shore. They all share the same drunkard womanizing father, but they
all have different mothers.
The only shining light and saving grace in this triangle of
brotherly dislike is their sister Nina Cleary (Amy Smart). Who unfortunately
promised her father before his death she would bring all three brothers
together again. So she sends each one a letter notifying them of their father’s
death and there will be a reading of the will.
The youngest brother Douglas is getting out of prison. He
was sent there because he is a thief and is very good at his illegal
skill---however he did get caught and had to pay for his crime. He has never
met his half- sister, half-brothers or his father for that matter. His mother
left when he was a baby.
The middle son Leo Cleary is a bail bondsman who is in debt
up to his eyeballs. And Sam is a tough cop who has been suspended for his
roughness and unprofessionalism becoming a police office.
So Nina after ten years of not seeing each other now has all
the brothers together as she promised her father. She tried to explain to her
brothers that their father had changed over the years. Only Sam and Leo knew
him---and when they knew him he was a drunk all the time he was home, and Sam
was mainly the father to Nina and Leo---but he left when he was 17 years
old---he could not take anymore.
So the two children left behind Nina and Leo learned to take
care of each other. And this maybe one reason Leo hates Sam so much---we will
After the will is read each child will receive 3 million
dollars with the stipulation the brothers form a business and work together for
two years, and then they will get their money.
So this is where the fun beings as the three brothers go
after a one of Leo’s bail skippers for $250,000. Now the guy who skipped is
also a member of a gang who has kidnapped a Billionaire. So the race is on into
the back country on horseback with the help of a beautiful woman.
Will they get their man? Or will they be captured and held?
Are these brothers working well together or not? What happens when the
Billionaire is rescued? Will it be the brothers who do it?
The first Avengers Comic Book was published in 1963---which
any avid comic book collector knows. So for 49 years our Super Heroes have
lived in the printed and illustrated pages until 2012 when Marvel Studios
produced the film. During the time from 1963 until 2012 they only came alive and active in our dreams.
This is one of the most popular films today which is viewed
by a vast audience of 49 years of being fans of the “Super Heroes.” And even as
a female I admit to loving them also. So, from grandparents to grandchildren
this is a family film. That could be the reason Walt Disney is the distributor
of the Marvel Comic.
Super Heroes are: Iron Man, Tony Stark (Robert Downy, Jr.), The Incredible
Hulk, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Thor, (Chris Hemsworth), Captain
America, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Hawkeye, Clint Barton
Renner), and Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) are
the magnificent ones we all loved to watch.
begins when Asgardian Loki (Tom Hiddleston) bumps into the Other
Denisof) boss of the celestial people Chitauri. The Other makes a deal
with Loki if he will recover the controlling energy source Tesseract---then
Other will give Loki an army of Chitauri so he can conquer Earth. This is a very dangerous energy source
and it might be too much for our Super Heroes. We will have to wait and
see---but I think they will win in the end.
Nick Fury (Samuel
L. Jackson) director of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Maria Hill (Cobi
Smulders) lieutenant Agent enter an isolated research building during a
test on the energy source Tesseract. The Tesseract suddenly galvanizes and a
portal opens which permits Loki to reach Earth. What will the Super Heroes do
now? Will Loki use his scepter to enslave anyone? Will a war begin? Can the
Heroes save New York from Loki?
I will watch
my DVD to review the ending of this great film. One of my favorites and I know
there are many fans out there who wants to know also.
Everyone---are you ready for a big dose of action with an
all-star cast from the “Cream of the Crop Actors”? Then this is the movie for
Slevin Kelevra (Josh Hartnett) is invited by a friend---Nick
Fisher (Sam Jaeger) to come for a visit. However, he finds his friend
Nick is not home at the moment. So he makes himself at home by taking a long
shower to wash his troubled week of stress away.
His terrible week included being robbed---while he walked the
streets in an easy mode--- he enjoyed the window displays when he came to the
city. Slevin was minding his own business when suddenly he was hit in the face
Now he is tired, bruised, broke and worried about his absent
friend---this was not like Nick not to be here to make him feel welcomed.
He gets out of his leisurely shower feeling refreshed as
much a worried guy can be---when someone knocked on his friend’s apartment door.
He answered it with a towel wrapped around his waist---it is Lindsey (Lucy Liu)
the neighbor who is friendly, talkative and little nosy.
Lindsey wanted to know what happened to his face. So he
explained---and he hoped she would leave---but she stayed longer---because she
liked the view---of Slevin and his towel.
After Lindsey left Nick’s apartment---Slevin had two more
visitors. Two gangsters who worked for “The Boss” Elvis (Dorian Missick) and Sloe
Williamson) told Slevin the Boss wanted to see him.
Slevin tells them---I am not who you think I am---I do not
Sloe told him---you look like the guy who lives here.
Slevin---asked them---You have never seen him---have you?
Still with a towel wrapped around his waist---Slevin ends up
stand in front of the Boss (Morgan Freeman) and tried to explain
this was a case of mistaken identity. He says to the Boss---I am not the guy
Slevin does not know at this point Nick owed both the Boss
and the Rabbi money. And if he knew while standing there in front of the
Boss--- his towel might fall off.
The Boss wanted him to kill the son of the Rabbi in revenge
for him murdering the Boss’ son. And as if this is not enough for Slevin to
worry about. Both powerful bosses--- the Boss and the Rabbi (Sir BenKingsley)
crime lords--- hired a professional hitman Mr. Goodkat (Bruce Willis); who is a heartless
And while Slevin is trying to just stay alive---from being
caught in the middle; he must feel like a very unlucky guy.
What will happen next? Will Slevin and Lindsey fall in love
in the middle of his identity crisis? Will his friend Nick finally show up?
Will Detective Brisowski (Stanley Tucci) continue to pressure
Slevin to help him get the two crime lords?
I really like this DVD because of the action and the fact it
might not be too far from fiction imitating life. What a great time we live
in---as we do not need to leave home for entertainment. Just put in a DVD and
pop some corn---for a lovely family night, girl’s night or special someone night
to watch a great movie.
Shaughnessy (Luke Goss) is a former CIA Operative who is on a quest to find
out who pushed him out of an airplane 3000 feet over the ocean. The one who
pushed him is the truth he seeked so intently--- he has gone into a killing rage
to find out fast because his memory is unraveling.
Could he find out he was
abducted by the one of his enemies he sent to prison? Or could it even be a
friend? He did not know at this point--- leaving him grateful for surviving the
fall from the plane---but still looking for answers. His memory was slowing
escaping his grip on reality and he had to hurry to find the truth before it
slips through his mind and is gone forever. Leaving the attempted murderer who
could be his nemeses or a false friend; free to try again.
was a CIA Operative in the field he made many friends and enemies which could
be neither one that wanted him dead. But he was not dead---he lived to retaliate
and to look his want-to-be killer in the eye. Not many men had the courage to
face him---only the ones who were 80% emotionally demented.
leaving the CIA Michael became a government contractor and crossed into an
unsafe North Mexican drug trafficking gang to find the person who tried to kill
him. What will he find there--- or has he bitten off more than his government
associates are willing to help him with--- this time.
friend Dwight (Cole Hauser) might be the only one who has his back or not. He
has shaken so many bushes until the evil that hides under them is beginning to
surface. One of the worst is Santiago (Nestor Carbonell) who is very nervous
about being trailed, especially by Michael the crazed ex-CIA mad man. And we all know when a panther is cornered what will
Santiago take as a hostage? Will it be someone Michael Shaughnessy loves---will
he be the victor in the end? Or will Santiago with all his drug money wealth and his men
who will stop at nothing to satisfy their Boss.
best two law enforcement men are joined at the hip to investigate the other one---we
will catch a ride with action, drama, crime and thrills with a laugh
sprinkle among the action.
(Denzel Washington) a DEA Agent and Officer Michael Stigman “Stig” (Mark Wahlberg)
an Undercover Naval Intelligence Office are the most skilled law enforcement agents of each agency.
Bobby was assigned to investigate Stig and Stig was assigned to investigate
Bobby and we know from where we sit---this will not be a harmonious pairing. Their
jobs are to find out if the other one is honest and trust-worthy so they plan
to rob a bank and wait for the outcome of honesty or not.
So they robbed
the bank and are discussing the money amount when Bobby starts to pull his gun
but Stig beats him to it and shoots Bobby. This is when he finds out Bobby is a
DEA Agent. So Stig knows he has been set up by someone for an investigation and
he is really ticked. He drives off and leaves Bobby in the dirt shot.
reports in at the Naval Intelligence and flung Bobby’s badge at an office and
asked if they knew a DEA Agent by the name of Bobby Beans while at the DEA Agency---
Bobby is asking the same question about Stig---did you know he was Special
Forces? Bobby was told that Stig was a piece of work.
and Stig expelled with all the bull---they received from their agency---they
finally bump into each other again. Of course they showed their combative
skills and decide they were equal---and then it was time to talk about being
set up. They finally come to the conclusion they were set-up by the mob---they
very people from whom they stole the money. Feeling they were really set-up by
both the DEA and Naval Intelligence also---they had a lot to think about.
now work together? Of Course and this will be a movie to remember when they
both reached the limits of tolerance---Hell will have no fury compared to what
happen now that the two are together again? Fasten your seat belts---for a ride
of a life time.
And this is
action, packed with drama, crime, and thrills---and I would love to see
them act together again.
When two of my favorite guys are starring in a movie
together---I am one happy fan.
It is always a chilling event when a democratic government disintegrates
because that is when the evil military dictators take control. They seize what
is left of the country and their rebel army will murder the citizens and any missionaries
left in the country. As they massacre and in some cases they genocide many people
of their own race. It does not matter to them if it is women and
children---because they are being paid to do a job.
When this happened in Nigeria the US Government sent in
their best man to retrieve an American Dr. Lena Flore Kendrick (Monica Bellucci)
who is with the “Doctors Without Borders” at a Catholic mission in a remote
village deep in the jungle of Nigeria.
Navy SEAL Lieutenant A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) Special Ops
Commander and his elite squadron of tactical specialists travel through the
jungle to retrieve and take the doctor to safety. This was their command and
duty to follow orders to the letter. But they had never dealt with a stubborn
woman doctor before.
Dr. Kendrick would not leave without the 70 villagers that
would be left at the mercy of the rebel army. She insisted with they all went
together or she would not leave. They were then taken on a death-defying trudge
through the dense jungle of Nigeria to a safe haven at the border.
Waters and his men dodged the rebels who are tracked them
from the village. This harden veteran and his men have chosen to ignore their
command from the US government and are following their hearts in the rescue of
the innocent villagers.
Jake Carter (Mike “The Miz” Mizain) a Marine of the Special Ops has returned
to his home town in a rural area---where most of the locals are just common
folks---who live a simple life.
He is anxious
to see his two sisters Lily and Amanda for some family time and fun together.
Jake is home hoping to get lot of R&R as he just completed a tough clandestine
assignment in Central America.
What is most
important to him is spending time with Lily (Ashley Bell) and Amanda (Camille
Sullivan) his sweet precious sisters. And like all brothers he feels responsible
for the sisters he loves so much and wants to see them every time his career
choice could’ve been any exotic place in the world for his rest and relax---but
he wanted to go home to see his family. His heart still beats the loudest for his
rural living and his small country town---where neighbors have your back---and
everyone helps when needed.
sweetest and comfort of being home was like a fleeting moment---very
short-lived. Lily and her boyfriend are in the wrong place at the very horrible
wrong time. Lily saw something which ended in with Jonas Pope (Neal
McDonough) is a radical determined to release terrorist violence and mayhem
on American soil.
use every skill to get his sister back from Jonas and stop him from his evil
deed. It is difficult to believe that Jonas was once a college professor. What
happened to his mind to make him turn against America and become a terrorist?
Here is a special treat for you to watch "Miz" from the WWE.
John McClane the subversive cop who takes action past the limit of no
return is also a father. His two children are Lucy and Jack McClane and
he will do anything for them humanly possible. And they know this---however
they feel it is their duty to protect their Dad as much as possible to keep him
out of trouble which has not worked so far.
John has a prickly relationship with his son Jack but this does
not stop him from traveling to Russia because he thinks his outwardly strong-willed
son needs him.
Lucy takes her Dad to the airport and tells him to try and not
made whatever he is going to find a bigger mess than it already is.
John looks at his daughter and smiles as he departs from the
vehicle and as he walks away he says his favorite line----Yippee ki yay. So now we
know John McClane is in for a lot of action because trouble seems to follow him
where ever he goes.
Jack McClane has been arrested as he is led to a bullet proof
armor vehicle and guarded by men ready for battle. However, it appears that
Jack has a lot of his father in him as he escapes and is riding off in a van
and almost runs over John McClane.
Jack is surprised to see his dad and after he and his dad
talked the truth is much clearer. John now knows his son is a CIA operative
trying to prevent a nuclear weapons heist.
Now the two McClane have joined together to fight the enemy and
being on foreign soil does not intimidate John McClane. So when John and Jack
McClane become partners they are a source to fear---as all Hell will break out---so
if it is the Russians that are the evil nuclear weapon robbers---they had
better dig a hole and hide---because the McClanes will bury them.
This movie will be out on DVD soon and I for one cannot

Travis Dane who

Satellite. He contracted to make 1 Billion dollars by hacking in the CIA
Database and planned to destroy the Eastern Seaboard by blowing up a nuclear
reactor. He boarded the train to set up a mobile database for his evil commitment.
we know there will be plenty of action in this movie---just what I like
about Steven Seagal---he has been one of my favorite action actors for many
years. And will be for many more I hope.
This is one
of my favorite Steven Seagal Movies and I actually played the video so much
over the years it broke---so I replaced it with a DVD---because this movie is good----movie lovers.

Commander Krill was in trouble with
the Captain when he found out that Commander Krill
approved a helicopter landing on the
Missouri without clearing it with him. Krill told the Captain that it was a
surprise for his birthday. So the Captain gave in and Krill told the Captain to
stay in his cabin until they came to get him.
In the meantime Krill visits Casey’s
kitchen just as Casey put pies in the oven--- and tells him about the Birthday
surprise and Casey tells him---I am the only one who cooks for the Captain.
Krill tells him to stand down that food is being sent for the Captain’s
Surprise Birthday party-- and then spits in a pot of food Casey was cooking.
Casey did not take it with a fight. Then Krill had Casey locked up in one of the
