Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Guy Pearce in---Lawless

During Prohibition Franklin County was known as the Moonshine Capital of the World” well their world anyway. Franklin County Virginia is found at the foothills of the Blue Ridge. It seems that making moonshine was one of the best ways these mountain people had of making a good living. Growing corn did not furnish much but making moonshine they called it “White Lightning” out of the corn made a good living for mountain families.

This story is about a star--- the celebrity of Franklin County in the year of 1931 a Virginian name Forrest Bondurant (Tom Hardy) and his brothers Howard (Jason Clarke) and Jack (Shia Labeouf). These brothers had a bootlegging business and a distillery. This was a well-run family business but since it was not legal they did not pay any taxes and this rubbed the government the wrong way.

And since millions of dollars were being made everyone wanted in on the action---gangster from major cities wanted a piece of the pie. And this is when the trouble started with the Bondurant Family; because a crooked D.A. Mason Wardell (Tim Tolin) came into town bringing his ruthless Special Deputy Charles Rakes (Guy Pearce). They demanded payoff and the Bondurant Brothers were told their lives would be miserable if they did not toe-the-line.

Well I hope the D.A. and his crooked men were ready for all Hell to break loose. It is a known fact that nobody tangles with the mountain men and their businesses---legal or not.

This is an action movie about what is right and what should be right. I say a smart person would leave these people alone to live how they pleased. It would be a more harmonious affair as the crooks and gangster found out.

Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx in---White House Down

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 James Sawyer.

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.

Chuck Norris---in The Lone Wolf McQuade

The Lone Wolf—J.J. McQuade (Chuck Norris) is one of my favorite Chuck Norris movies. It is filled with drama, action, adventure and love.

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.

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.

McQuade 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.
