I have your tickets to see Paul Walker’s final fully completed film at the Indianapolis advance screening.
In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city. For undercover cop Damien Collier (Paul Walker) every day is a battle against corruption. For Lino (David Belle), every day is a fight to live an honest life. Their paths never should have crossed, but when drug kingpin, Tremaine (RZA) kidnaps Lino’s girlfriend, Damien reluctantly accepts the help of the fearless ex-convict, and together they must stop a sinister plot to devastate the entire city. With stylized action featuring thrilling Parkour stunts(David Belle is the co-founder of the physical training discipline), Brick Mansions puts an entertaining twist on the action genre.

Sports movies and Kevin Costner, they go together like beer and wings. If you are going to set out to make a great movie about sports, it’s not a bad idea to have Costner as the leading man. He has succeeded in combining what he is best at as an actor with his real life love of sports. Costner has a confidence and slyness as an actor that work well in these roles and are unmistakably his own. From Bull Durham to Tin Cup and Field of Dreams he has proven that he can bring home a winner. Draft Day is less about the Cleveland Browns and more about the annual craziness that is the NFL Draft. There certainly are some glaring similarities between the films story line and the real life current situation with the Browns. The lack of success and passionate fan base are present in both and there have been a number of boneheaded moves involving the Browns organization on Draft Day. The story begins on the day of the NFL Draft, Costner plays general manager Sonny Weaver. He is coming off another losing season, has a baby on the way with his co-worker(Jennifer Garner), and he is also saddled with the grief of not only firing his father, who was the head coach and Cleveland legend, but doing so just before he passed away. Now he has one more chance to make things right and save football in Cleveland. Read the rest of this entry »

Wes Anderson has a unique style, and the latest addition to his filmography is another in a long line of odd and entertaining films. These strange tales are not for everyone and I have a tough time recommending them to the masses given his bizarre approach to making movies. I’m actually not a huge fan of his previous offerings(Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums etc.) with their odd characters and bizarre dialogue sequences, I find them boring for my tastes. But I did like The Grand Budapest Hotel, and it’s my favorite of all of his movies. Ralph Fiennes is excellent and carries the film on his back. He plays Gustave H, a legendary concierge at the lavish and famous hotel. His partner is the youthful Zero Moustafa, a lobby boy who becomes his trusted confidant. The story jumps from different periods of time to tell the tale of how the lobby boy came to own the Grand Budapest Hotel. Basically the concierge romances elderly rich women as one of his services.
