With the successful landing of the rover “Curiousity” on Mars this past week, my thoughts have turned to Space and the Space program, and that naturally led me to think of Ron Howard’s “Apollo 13”.
With an emphasis on authenticity and cast laden with Oscar winners and nominees, “Apollo 13” brings to life the nerve-wracking true tale of determination, ingenuity and courage that occurred on the 13th mission of the Apollo program.
Given the release of “Prometheus” this past week, the “Alien” franchise has been pushed back to the forefront. I’m not sure that anyone would prefer that movie to either of these, so I’m fairly certain that the debate over the best film in the Franchise still boils down to these two.
So let’s hash it out once and for all.
Click through to read the “Tale of the Tape” and then let’s hear which one you think is better, “Alien” or “Aliens”!
The latest film from Director Steven Soderbergh (“Traffic”, “Erin Brokovich”, “Contagion”) and the first for MMA superstar Gina Carano hit theatres this weekend. “Haywire” is the story of a double-crossed secret agent on the run from her agency. Set up and sold out, she’s on the run and out to get revenge against those who wronged her.
Sound hackneyed? Been there, done that? Well, it is to a certain extent. With the exception of the fact that it features a female action lead, “Haywire” certainly isn’t out to blaze any new trails.
What it does do is feature first class directing, an excellent cast from top to bottom, and incredible fight sequences. This movie could wind up being the debutant party for future action heroine Gina Carano.
