Movie Review - Moneyball

Movie Review - Moneyball
“The Natural”, “Bull Durham” and “Field Of Dreams.” All 4 star movies and now comes “Moneyball” continuing the long line of great baseball movies. “Moneyball” is about baseball, but it’s also about a sense of belief when few, if any, share that belief.

Movie Review: "Drive"

Movie Review: "Drive"
I’ll say it right up front, the movie “Drive” was a huge letdown. I was led to believe that this was a modern day version of “Bullitt” which starred Steve McQueen and his famous 1968 Mustang. The acting and the story in that flick was topped only by the great chase scenes. So now 43... Read more »

Movie Review - The Help

Movie Review - The Help
Wow…Two straight movies that I really really liked. What’s the world coming to? And the common thread in both movies was Emma Stone. First in “Crazy Stupid Love” and now in “The Help” “The Help” is the film adaptation of the acclaimed book by Kathryn Stockett and I’m told by those that read the book that... Read more »
