TRON: Legacy

In theaters December 17th!!

Garrett Hedlund is not a well known actor, but I personally loved him in FOUR BROTHERS! He is one of the main characters in TRON: Legacy, playing Sam Flynn, who is haunted by the disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), a man who was once known as the worlds leading video-game developer. While investigating the disappearance, Sam finds himself pulled into a world filled with gladiatorial programs. I'm kinda excited to see this one. I never saw the first one back in the 80's, but this looks good.

THE WALKING DEAD ON AMC!

The LIVING wearing the DEAD!!

I love watching zombie movies so when I heard about a series I had to watch it and let me tell you I haven't been disappointed. I like how The Walking Dead brings new elements to the table that have never been done before in any zombie film I've seen. For instance I like how the cast like to NOT use guns, the reason being that the noise draws out the Dead! Also I haven't ever seen the concept where the "Living" wear body parts of "The Dead" to walk around undetected!

Native Americans on Film

Celebrate National Native American Heritage Month by enjoying one of the many great films about the Native American experience. For far too long Native Americans were portrayed as the "bad guys" of Western films, I am thankful that Hollywood has adopted a more sympathetic attitude toward these heroic peoples.

Sherman Alexie is a prolific author who has written many stories and novels based on some of his own experiences and has had a few made into films, including  The Business of Fancydancing and Smoke Signals.

Black Dynamite

O'Leary: "Okay. We heard about your brother's death. The last thing we need is you running through the streets creating a river of blood."
Black Dynamite: "Tell me who did it and I'll just leave a puddle."
 

If you haven't seen this movie, Black Dynamite, you should. I was a bit hasty about watching it but did so only because, Micheal Jai White is the lead role in this film! I'll admit it's a bit on the not so funny side when it starts, but please give it time. It will grow on you. It has its mixture of comedy as well as some humorous action! Just keep in mind it's just a movie, don't take it so seriously and enjoy! Please leave a comment or two and let me know what you think.
