Montana Sky---Ashley Williams, Charlotte Ross & John Corbett

Jack Mercy was one of the wealthiest ranchers in Montana. And his funeral is waiting for his other two daughters to arrive so the preacher can begin. His daughter Willa Mercy (Ashley Williams) is the only daughter who has lived with her father and worked on the ranch. And, today is the first time all three half-sisters are meeting. His attorney, the sheriff, neighbors and employees of the ranch are standing in the graveyard; when the first daughter arrived.

Her name is Lilly Mercy (Laura Mennell) and she acts timid; as she’s escorted to the family graveyard by Adam Wolfchild ( Nathaniel Arcand) who is Willa’s half-brother. He and Willa had the same mother, but different fathers. Lilly and Adam become close as the story unfolds. Lilly divorced her abusive husband after six months of marriage. However, he reappears and starts trouble for Lilly and Adam.

Tess Mercy (Charlotte Ross) the second sister is a writer, she arrived from California dragging her fast paced life with her. And will return to Hollywood where she has her agent, her life and friends as soon as the funeral is over. She is a city girl and wants nothing to do with nowhere Montana.

Bess (Diane Ladd) is the housekeeper who keeps all the sisters and everyone else on the straight path of good manners and to treat everyone with kindness.

Nate Torrence (Aaron Pearl) who is the Sheriff of Monroe County is a hunk, who falls for Tess. Watching their relationship develop is fascinating and funny. 

After the funeral the attorney read the will---and it stated that each of Jack Mercy’s daughters will  inherit 1/3 of the 24 Million Plus Dollar ranch, however, all three daughters are to live a full year on the ranch to legally inherit their part or it will all be donated to the Nature Conservatory---and they will only receive a $100.00 each.
To makes matter worse the attorney tells Willa that Ben McKintock (John Corbett) and he---will be overseers for the one year. Willa is upset over this news, but Ben is happy because he has feeling for Willa. Will Willa will return those feeling? Their relationship is as rocky as the mountains that surrounds Mercy Ranch.

Nora Roberts wrote the book ‘Montana Sky’ and now we are fortunate to see a movie based on her book.

Enjoy and I hope you get your own copy of this very good movie. I still have mine that I watch; the story is great and the scenery is beautiful, in this western, romance, thriller and happy ending movie.

Unknown---Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger and January Jones

Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) a biochemist with his wife Elizabeth Harris (January Jones) traveled to Berlin for a conference to hear about the discovery in research by Professor Leo Bressler (Sebastian Koch). Prince Shada (Mido Hamada) from Arabia funded the research so he would be there as an honored guest.

When they arrive at the hotel Dr. Harris discovers he left his brief case at the airport, so he hops into another taxi and is on his way to retrieve it. While his wife checks on their reservations.

Suddenly, Dr. Harris’ taxi is in an accident and the taxi goes over the bridge into the icy water below. The taxi driver Gina (Diane Kruger) pulls the unconscious Martin Harris out of the car and swam with him to the shore.  Then the Taxi driver Gina hurried away before the police arrived. She had something to hide, evidently.

Martin Harris remained in a coma four days and woke up in the hospital on the fourth day. He could not remember what happened and without identification could not even prove he was Dr. Martin Harris.

He’s understandably confused, but remembers being married and dread fills his mind that his wife cannot find him. His memory loss caused him and his doctor much concern.

In a burst of energy he leaves the hospital without the doctor’s consent. He is off to find his wife and when he locates her, she denies knowing him. Confused but adamant that he is her husband and does not understand what is happening.

Then a man steps up with identification and says he is Dr. Martin Harris. (He’s not the only one confused now, and lost in a maze of denials and chaotic web of deceit, I am with him.)

Finally, the hotel puts him in a cab to take him back to the hospital, but he gets out and goes back to the hotel in time to see his wife having dinner with the other man who claims he is Dr. Martin Harris. They are very lovable to each other, which is more baffling.

He noticed a black van was following him, and ignores it as he stays on track to prove who he is. He goes to Professor Bressler and finds the imposture already there. When the fake Dr. Martin Harris shows his I.D. to prove he’s the real one, there is a photo of his wife sitting on the lap of the impersonator. 

Then he fainted and wakes up in the hospital again with the same man who followed him once before. Who is now trying to kill him, but a nurse comes in the room and confronts him about being with her patient. Then the assassin breaks her neck, and goes into another room to hide another body. Martin manages to get her scissors and cut his restrains and gets away.

He Didn't Forget Everything or Maybe He Did Not Remember it Correctly

Why are these assassins after him? He cannot imagine anything since he has gaps in him memory still.

This movie is an action, mystery and thriller all rolled into a ball of entertainment that last for 113 minutes of the edge of your seat watching. If you missed this movie buy a DVD and entertain your friends with a movie night. They will thank you for it.

The A-Team--Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper & Sharlto Copley


Somewhere in Mexico Col. Hannibal Smith (Liam Neeson) is handcuffed to a chair by Mexican corrupted police officers who are taking turns hitting him.

They soon get tired of beating him, they take his money and leave, but they send in the Bulldogs to have a free meal of Hannibal. Hannibal unlocks the cuffs with the pin from his gun just in time to save himself from the dogs.

Then somewhere else in Mexico B.A. Baracus (Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson) is back to collect his girl---that is what he calls his black van that he loves---from a garage owner who is keeping it.

Suddenly, a fight breaks out and B.A. Baracus, who has huge arms with muscles rippling down to his fingertips, makes a short and fast exit with his van after knocking everyone out who fought with him.

He has tattoos on each hand. The left hand has the word ‘Play’ tattooed on it and the right one has the word ‘Fool’; he starts his fights with the play fist and ends up with the fool fist.

Still in Mexico is Lt. ‘Faceman ‘Face’ Peck ( Bradley Cooper) who is now being invaded by more crooked and mean Mexicans who are holding his girlfriend and has him trapped in five tries. They are beating him all the while Face is laughing and asking them---is that your best shot?

Face is trapped in the tires.

In the meantime Hannibal is trying to get to him by running across the desert to save Face, when he sees a van moving fast in the direction of his friend. Hannibal stops the van and hijacks it by shooting B.A. Baracus in the right arm. Hannibal tells him---I am not a thief but if I do not reach my friend in time he dies. Hannibal and B.A. discovered they were both special selected soldiers---Rangers---and proudly wear the same tattoo.

They arrive in time to save Face from being burned alive and the four of them the three men and Face’s girlfriend ride off in B.A.’s girl---the black van. They meet up with the fourth special selected soldier in the hospital who will sew-up the bullet wound on B.A.’s arm. His name is Captain H.M. Murdock (Sharlto Copley) he will be the fourth member of the A-Team.

Then the mission begins with the four American soldiers---The A-Team---who are in Iraq waiting to be sent on a mission by Hannibal’s good friend General Morrison. They are sent to retrieve plates for printing 100 dollar bills, and, the thieves had already printed a billion dollars. And, this is where the action commences, with adventure fireworks, dealings, double dealings, double crossing, court martialed, prison and prison breaks.

Fasten your seatbelt all you action fans because this is a great action movie---I loved it from the beginning to the end. I would love to see this A-Team do an A-Team II.
