“Looper” is a Suspense/Thriller that starts a bit slow, but like a locomotive picking up steam it speeds up to give you a thrilling ride. You must pay close attention because there are so many twists and turns that you will get lost. The movie keeps you guessing and waiting to see what happens next.

“Looper” is about Time Travel that is illegal except on the Black Market. When the mob wants to get rid of someone they send them back 30 years to the past where a “Looper” takes care of the target.

At some point a “Looper” becomes a target and knowing how the system works a “Looper” tries to avoid their fate. The story unfolds from there…

Very “Mind Bending, Intriguing, Intense and Suspenseful” with a moderate amount of action. The movie does get a bit bloody at times. This is one of the best Suspense Thrillers since the movie “Inception”. The way the movie ended was a bit weird.

If you like “Intense” and can stand the “Bloodiness” then “Looper” is your movie.

End of Watch

“End of Watch” is a very gruesome and realistic view of what two LA police officers deal with on a daily basis. Patrolling the mean streets of Los Angeles is no joke and the LAPD put their lives on the line every single day to try and keep the good citizens of Los Angeles safe.
The movie is so realistic that at times I covered my face because what was being shown would make me ill.
“End of Watch” is very bloody, realistic, and gruesome and in its own way awesome because it’s not sugar- coated. It’s the real deal.
The on-screen chemistry between Gyllenhall and Pena is really good. The scenes with them in their squad car really gives you a great understanding of what police officers deal with while cruising the streets. With everything that goes on in “End of Watch” the movie is really good, but it loses steam at the end and that’s what will keep it from being a great movie.
If you can stand the bloodiness and the gruesome factor, “End of Watch” is worth seeing.

Trouble With the Curve

“Trouble With the Curve” is not Clint Eastwood’s best movie, but it’s not his worst. The movie is slow and a bit dry. If you are expecting a movie solely about Baseball, forget it!!
Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been one of Baseball’s best scouts for many years. He has aged and his eye sight has deteriorated to the point that he can hardly see a pitcher pitching. Even when his bosses question his judgment, Gus refuses to quit.
Gus’s daughter (Amy Adams) is a high powered workaholic attorney living in another city. One of Gus’s bosses contacts her and asks her to come and see about her Dad. The story unfolds from there…
Often times slow and quiet, you are not sure where the movie is headed. There is more than one story going on in the movie. Gus Lobel’s (Clint Eastwood) grumpiness will wear you down, but there is a Father/Daughter story in this movie just trying to break free.
The acting and on screen chemistry between Eastwood and Adams is great and that is what makes the movie plausible.
“Trouble With the Curve” is passable as movie entertainment

The Words

Bradley Cooper plays Rory Jensen who perpetrates a writer. While on his honeymoon in Paris, his new bride (Zoe Saldana) purchases an old leather satchel for Rory as a gift. Hidden in one of the pockets of the satchel is an old manuscript.

Rory finds this manuscript and reworks the story a bit. It is then published and becomes a best seller. The original writer (Jeremy Irons) of the manuscript recognizes his tragedic story. He finds Rory and tells him the details of his story and Rory then realizes he made a HUGH mistake in publishing the manuscript as his own work. The story unfolds from there…

“The Words” is a very boring movie. There are a lot of heavy hitters in the movie, but none of them resconate on the big screen. The movie is disjointed and contains a lot of holes.

I found “The Words” to be a complete waste of money.
