Cut Bank – Liam Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer and Billy Bob Thornton (2015)

Cut Bank Montana’s population is approximately 2,978 qualifying it for a small town where the Rockies meet the Plains. Growing-up in a small town has its good and not so good points. Dwayne McLaren (Liam Hemsworth) wants more than anything to move to a big city leaving the small town mentality flapping in the wind. He is making his living as an auto mechanic, not a fleet mechanic that pays well, but automobiles of the citizens of Cut Bank.

Dwayne is in love with his beautiful blond girlfriend Cassandra Steely (Teresa Palmer) and wants to take her with him to live in a city that never sleeps. And, that has been his dream since he graduated two years ago. However, it takes a lot of money for his dream to come true, so for now he just enjoys being with Cassandra.

Until one day his luck changed while making a video of his girlfriend in a field of flowers. Or, did he make his luck change? Anyway, while videotaping Cassandra someone walked across the field of flowers and shot the mailman in cold blood. Dwayne and Cassandra hid in the flowers, while he kept his camera running---he caught everything on video.

He showed the video of the murder to Sheriff Vogel (John Malkovich) and Big Stan Steely (Billy Bob Thornton) which showed the mail was taken. Maybe someone wanted something the mailman had on his mail truck. And, during the time of this occurrence a guy name Derby Milton (Michael Stuhlbarg) was looking for a package.

Dwayne’s luck is changing because he will get money for his video and everything is looking great. Until, Big Stan Steely tells him---he is on to him because he videotaped a moneymaking crime. And, then Joe Barrett (Oliver Pratt) tells the sheriff they need to see the body. So, where is the body?

This is going to be a good action, mystery thriller and that is how savvy small townspeople are---they see everything, hear everything and tell everything.

Focus with Will Smith, Margot Robbie and BD Wong (February 27, 2015)




Nicky Spurgeon (Will Smith) an experienced confidence-man who used his charisma to acquire the trust of his marks; then he and his team of thirty begin setting the stage to pull off a profitable scam. His choice comes from the wealthiest to swindle and as an old-timer at this game he becomes very wealthy too.

His focus interrupted briefly when he met Jess Barrett (Margot Robbie) who wanted in on his cons. Her beauty seems to hypnotize him because he becomes her mentor for a while and even falls for her charms. When his friend Owens (Gerald McRaney) warned him his greatest asset is being inconspicuous---he takes it to heart.


Although Nicky and Jess were romantically involved and he felt for her more than he should; he breaks off their romance to stay focused on his career of scamming. His team depended on him for their living, so personal feelings are too much of a liability. Jess leaves with some heartache and a lot of new skills she learned from Nicky.

36 months later Jess has her own scam business going; with her beautiful face and body what man could resist her charms to become ensnared into a compromising position. Nicky runs into his former love interest in Buenos Aires, he watched Jess a vision in red walk down the stairs straight into his heart again.
Jess’ smile froze his mind for a minute and he could not breathe---her beauty would do that to any man he whispered to no one in particular. A handsome billionaire who races’ cars is her current target. Her presents on his playing field became an issue because of the target; and the bad boys began trying to play in the same sandbox with bigger shovels.

Nicky’s ongoing plans of his present target proved dangerous because Jess took front and center in the perfect grifter’s mind. How would this end? Would Nicky and Jess walked into the sunset holding hands or would they both end up pushing up daisies. Distraction could prove deadly if Nicky’s focus becomes captured; his fast moves and thinking will be off and, then his life will be over.
