HERE'S TO THE WEEKEND #25

NETFLIX & CHILL #51


Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers. When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the poverty striken situation Olympic caliber athletes like he and his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz's bid for Gold and the chance to "coach" a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave). Trapped in du Pont's majestic but suffocating world, Mark comes to see his benefactor as an ... Written by Sony Pictures Classics

FOXCATCHER is directed by Bennett Miller, written by E. Max Frye & Dan Futterman, and produced by Anthony Bregman, Megan Ellison, Jon Kilik & Bennett Miller.   As this was a movie that I had lived through the true story playing out in the news and media, yet not familiar with the entire story when I found out they were making the film there was some interest in seeing it. Playing the lead role was a completely transformed Steve Carell, which was another draw to this film. Upon watching the film, I felt it had a slow and methodical pace that spoke to the way things unfolded in real life. Having known the final out come of this story made it difficult to fully enjoy the film in that I ended up watching and waiting for the climatic ending to happen rather than being lost in the events that lead to it. So for FOXCATHER I give it 3 stars.

As tragedy strikes him in his prime, famed boxer, Billy Hope, begins to fall into a great depression. Once the decision regarding the custody of his daughter is under question, Billy decides to get his life back on track by getting back into the ring. (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

SOUTHPAW is directed by Antoine Fuqua, written by Kurt Sutter, and produced by Todd Black. I was definitely looking forward to this film hearing it was directed by Antoine Fuqua. The previews told just enough the cast seemed right, but some how and in some way this movie didn’t deliver in the way I thought it would. I mean maybe I’m still stuck on the ROCKY films, but SOUTHPAW was too much of a reflection of that for me to view it as a story that was wholly original. I had a friend mention that SOUTHPAW wasn’t as emotional sentimental as the ROCKY films, but I disagree in that in the same way the main character was fighting for his life the boxer in this film was fighting for his. I guess in the end I’m ready for a story of a fighter to tell a different story and for it to stray away from the main character playing underdog metaphor, which is what I thought this was going to be. So for SOUTHPAW I give it 3 stars.

NETFLIX & CHILL #48


Brit, Candy, Cotty, and Faith have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun. A serendipitous encounter with rapper "Alien" promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget. Written by Muse Productions (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

SPRING BREAKERS is written and directed by Harmony Korine, produced by Charles – Marie Anthonioz, Jordan Gerther, Chris Hanely and David Zander. This film caught a lot of buzz early on because of its mainly female cast and who they were. These young actresses trying to shed their little girl image as Mickey Mouse club and High School Musical fame ventured into this film to be merely clad in nothing more than a bikini. The hype seemed real, as I had seen previous films from Harmony Korine that moved me like KIDS, which he wrote, and GUMMO. My anticipation to see this film was high, but as I began to watch these young actresses try to step out of their previous well known roles I lost interest it just didn’t seem genuine or at least it was hard to suspended my disbelief. There were indeed moments of the film that haunt my memory in a good way and I credit that the Harmony Korine’s eclectic directing style, but otherwise the film to me is a miss. So for SPRING BREAKERS I give it 3 stars.

Set in 2031, the entire world is frozen except for those aboard the Snowpiercer. For 17 years, the world's survivors are on a train hurtling around the globe creating their own economy and class system. Led by Curtis, a group of lower-class citizens living in squalor at the back of the train are determined to get to the front of the train and spread the wealth around. Each section of the train holds new surprises for the group who have to battle their way through. A revolution is underway. Written by Anne Campbell (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

SNOWPIERCER is directed by Bong Joon Ho, written by Kelly Masterson, and produced by Miky Lee and Steven Nam. To be honest I had seen this film twice, in my first viewing the action of the story enthralled me as well as its offbeat humor in a story where a character fights his way to uncover truth I thought was great. In my second viewing I focused more on trying to uncover what was the meaning of the film in this bleak look of the future. There was definite talk about classicism and how each class has its place, which reflected the reality we live in today. This was indeed a cerebral film yet at the same time it held my interest throughout even when I was just looking to be entertained. So for SNOWPIERCER I give it 4 stars.

In a small town south of San Francisco, Sheriff Paul Del Moral (Pepe Serna) is driving home through the fog when he accidentally strikes a pedestrian, a lone Japanese man. However, before an investigation can take place the man disappears from the hospital without a trace. At the same time, Japanese mystery author Aki Akahori (Ayako Fujitani) takes a trip to San Francisco in order to escape the press tour for her latest book--a potboiler in her world famous "Inspector Takabe" series. Feeling lonely and vulnerable, she begins a romantic affair with a mysterious Japanese traveler from Reno (Kazuki Kitamura). Her new lover is charismatic and charming but abruptly disappears from the hotel, leaving behind his suitcase and a trail of questions... Written by Production (Courtesy of Internet Movie Database)

MAN FROM RENO is directed by Dave Boyle, written by Dave Boyle, Joel Clark, and Michael Lerman, produced by Ko Mori. I felt was an interestingly crafted noir type thriller. I liked that it was set somewhere other than New York and had a diverse cast.  The story for me kept me intrigued so I liked that as well as the pacing making the viewer has to pay attention to the clues. I also believe each actor portrayed their character very well and no one seemed miss cast or underwhelming in their performance. So for MAN FROM RENO I give it 4 stars.
