Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck and Gemma Arterton in--- Runner, Runner


All Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) desired in life was to be a Princeton Graduate. All college students aim for the best education from the most prestigious college. So they will have a better opportunity to become financially secure in life.

However, all college students are not from wealthy backgrounds so they need to work for their college tuition in order to attend college. Many some students have to plan ahead and work part-time for their college expenses.

But Princeton’s tuition is $60,000.00 a year--- so Richie used his talent for gambling to win his college tuition--because he was warned by Princeton---no gambling allowed on their premises---he goes off campus to gamble.

Richie is extraordinary with numbers, he can solve any equation Princeton Professors assigned him. He had reached the frantic point to win his $60,000. Richie gambled for his tuition---and he does it online.

He had won a lot of money---but suddenly he loses it all--- this is inconceivable. So another guy and Richie researched the site and they find that he was cheated.



So Richie goes to an isolated island to challenge the gambling site’s crooked owner, Ivan Brock (Ben Affleck). Ivan enticed Richie to stay and work for him. So now Richie is Ivan’s apprentice to learn and make more money in a short time than most men make in their lifetime.

Suddenly---everything goes south in their relationship turned sour and the FBI is on Richie’s back--- to help bring Ivan down. Does the FBI care they are putting Richie’s life in jeopardy.

Ivan is a mean hard man---a real killer---a man who is better left alone. Killing to him is a game something to play and enjoy. I hope Richie gets out alive.

Mark your movie calendar for September 27, 2013 this is the premiere date of Runner, Runner staring Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck and Gemma Arterton. Don’t miss Runner, Runner it will be a good movie.

Matt Damon---in Elysium 2154


On planet Earth 114 years from 2013---in the year 2154 there are still two categories of people---the haves and the have not’s.

In Elysium in 2154---lived the very wealthy in an immaculate space station---there is no crime, no poverty, no wars, no hunger and no disease. The residents of Elysium have medical machines available to give treatments to them when they are ill---then they are cured as it will eliminate any illness. There is nothing these wealthy people do without. These are the haves---so nothing has changed in this order. 

On Earth in 2013 the ones who were the haves that ruled were called “The Elite Group” the very wealthy---the billionaires.

On Earth in 2154 survivors were the “Have Not’s” who lived on a dilapidated burnt out planet with too many people. Who were constantly fighting hunger, disease, and working in factories that were dangerous and controlled by robots---manned from the secure space station. The Earth residents lived a hopeless existence who desired to enter the space station for a better life of good food and medical care.

But Earth in 2154 had Max De Costa (Matt Damon) after an industrial accident in the factory where he worked---resulted in Max acquiring a cancer virus. He was given the sad news that he had only days to live---so he needed to get in the space station to obtain medical treatment to save his life. This meant getting past Elysium’s Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster) who operated and guarded Elysium with all her power including robots.



What happened to change Max De Costa into a fighting machine? Did a friend do this to save his life or did the enemy from the space station do this to make him a robotic slave to Elysium?

Max is the Earth’s last hope to save the people who desperately need food, medical care and a better life for them and their families.

Will the Earth people win against the manufactured High Tech Supreme space station Elysium? That President Patel ( Faran Tehir) rules with the highest security system.

We will have to wait until August 9, 2013 and it will be in theaters for all to see.

Dominic Purcell and Erin Karpluk in---Assault on Wall Street


What happens when Jeremy Stancroft  ( John Heard) tells his traders on Wall Street to dump 12 Billion Dollars of certificates that hard working Americans invested in? If you were not hit by Wall Street‘s greed in real life---then you are among the lucky few.

When one invests their hard earned money with a stock broker they trust and are not notified in time to move that investment to another stock---then you lose everything.  And this has happened in real time to many Americans.

However, this movie might make you feel a little better about someone taking on the “Big Boys of Wall Street.” It has plenty of action, drama, and pay back scenes.

The movie is about a hardworking New Yorker Jim Baxford (Dominic Purcell) who invested his savings in certificates for his family. When Wall Street decides to play God and dump the certificates without notice---then people like Jim are devastated.

Jim finds out when the banks calls his wife Rosie Baxford (Erin Karpluk) and he tells her everything will be fine. Now at this point Jim thinks it will be fine.

But when he talks to everyone involved he finds out his money is gone and he will not receive a penny of his investment. So he decides to get even with the ones who cooked the pot to get their big bonuses. 

Now we all know it is not legal to start shooting people---but this is just a movie---fiction---not real.

So pop your Popcorn and drizzle it with chocolate and you will be ready to watch this review and the DVD of the movie Assault on Wall Street will be out August 13th, 2013.

Reserve your copy of ---Assault on Wall Street on DVD online and---save gas. I am because I try to be a fugal savvy shopper.

Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler---in The Ugly Truth

                                           

Abby Richter (Katherine Heigl) produced a T.V. morning news show in beautiful Sacramento, the capital city of California which is located at the union of the Sacramento River and American River.

Her show is about to be cancelled because of poor ratings. And the manager of the show Stuart (Nick Searey) has talked to Abby about it because he is very concerned if something does not improve fast---they might be pulled. He told Abby he had two daughters in college and he needed his job and now she needs to find a solution to their problem.


With this on her mind Abby ---she still agreed to keep a blind date with a guy who is 5’8’ much shorter than Abby.

She is a person who likes to control all the events in her life---including guys. She actually has a list of what she is looking for in a perfect man. Abby walks home after the blind date and he probably thought it was the worse blind date in history.


As she started to bed---her cat D’Artagnan stepped on the remote control and changed the channel to “The Ugly Truth Show” and Abby got the shock of her life.
Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler) a Sacramento cable talk show “Host” a channel where listeners call in to talk with him about the ugly truths of life.

 Mike believed and stated on live T.V. is--- men are simple creatures and all they want is sex---so throw away all the books that talk about what men want. Because all they care about is how a woman looks---they just want sex.

Abby was so upset by what she heard that she called in to speak to Mike Chadway. She asked him if he believed in love and he replied that he believed in passion. Well it went downhill from there and he ended up saying she was probably a dog (which crudely put—she was ugly.)

Abby awaken to another day and found that her boss Stuart was smiling so big he could not contain himself---he told everyone he had hired Mike Chadway to do The Ugly Truth on their show.

What a great surprise for most and other knew how Abby felt about so they agreed with her. But after the first day on the show the rating sky-rocket and not only was Stuart happy but the owners wanted to
Fly in and have dinner with Mike who saved their show.

Now Abby had to work with Mike because of the rating; however,  she still had a poor attitude towards him. But it was slowly changes as he gave her advice about how to reel in the doctor who lived in her apartment unit. She finally listened to Mike and his instructions to her are working in her favor.  

Abby told Mike that Colin was the perfect man and she and Colin started dating. He took her to nice places and she pretended to be someone she was not---that Mike implanted into her head---so she could get the man of her dreams.

But was he what Abby really wanted? Was Colin falling for the person Abby was not? Would Mike realize that he was falling for Abby and become jealous of Colin? What would Mike do about it?

Two handsome men and one beautiful woman equal a triangle where one person will lose. And that is
“The Ugly Truth.”

Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer in---The Family (2013)



                                   


Fred Blake/Giovanni Manzoni (Robert De Niro) a Mafia Boss who was an important part of the mob has informed to the CIA about the entire organization. Therefore---Fred and his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) their son Warren (John D’Leo) and Daughter Belle (Dianna Agron) are relocated to Normandy, France and are using the last name of Blake in lieu of Manzoni.

Their CIA contact is Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) who tries to keep them safe with strict instructions to them---that is was necessary to live---a quiet existence. But poor Agent Stansfield ends up relocating the Manzoni Family time and time again.

Why is this happening? Because they still solved all their issues the “Family” way---and that means in violent loud commotions---nothing is done by this family in a silent mode. With all their issues and trying to fit in to a society of a normal family life style---this is a funny movie.

And of course with their uncivilized behavior---the mob is hot on their trail---so this pushes Agent Stansfield to work constantly in trying to keep them safe. The family is relocated time and time again---staying just leaps ahead of the old cronies from the mob---who are sent as hit men to assassinate the Manzoni Family.

 Agent Stansfield tries to drum it into their heads to please live quietly so the neighbors cannot gossip and spread the news where you are located. This is a sinisterly funny film and the acting is great---of course. With Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones and the beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer no one would expect---anything but the best.

I am marking my calendar for September 13th 2013 for the premiere of “The Family.” I hope you will too.

Paranoia---Liam Hemsworth, Harrison Ford and Amber Heard



Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) only wanted to make it in the Hi-Tech world so he could take care of his father Francis Cassidy (Richard Dreyfuss) has worked for 32 years as a security guard in New York City. But has nothing to show for it--- he became the average American struggling along on his little retirement.


Adam spent years refining his technical skills until he could make or copy anything technical to perfection. Now all he needed was a break and he was hoping it would be soon.

When Adam finally got his big chance he was thrilled, but the thrill soon became a chill and he found himself between two of the world most powerful and greedy tech billionaires in the dangerous business of corporate espionage.

Jack Goddard (Harrison Ford) and Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman) whom are vicious and hostile toward each other and will stop at nothing to take the other one down.
It was Adams misfortune to be associate with Nicholas Wyatt first because he blackmailed him into becoming a spy stealing Hi-Tech trade secret in the Jack Goddard Corporation.



Of course there is a girl involved in Adams life now---one he cares about---Emma Jennings (Amber Heard). He will at all cost try to keep their relationship alive and ongoing.

Adam is trying to stay on good terms with Nicholas Wyatt who is blackmailing him by using his sick father. And his present employer Jack Goddard who he is stealing secrets from but is not aware of it yet.


Suddenly when Adam thinks nothing else bad could happen to him--- FBI Agent Billups (Josh Holloway) in charge of criminal investigation approached Adam to make a deal. Agent Billups told Adam that spying for Wyatt--- he could go to jail and stealing from Goddard could get him killed.

The action begins in this drama-thriller as both Goddard and Wyatt are after Adam now since he got even with them by using his Hi-Tech skills---what he did I do not know but I am hoping for a good ending. And I will wait for the movie to open in theaters in the USA on August 16th 2013.
