The Power In A Name

The original Rocky was released in 1976, almost 40 years ago. Rocky was more than a movie for its time. The quintessential underdog story, about how with enough hard work you can achieve your dreams. We’ve grown with Rocky over that time-span with five hit or miss sequels, 4 if you do the wise thing and forget Rocky 5 ever existed (I did).  However, father time is undefeated and Rocky can’t don the gloves anymore.

5 Upcoming movies that may not be on your radar 2015

We’re half way through 2015. I took a small break from the doing reviews. Found myself focusing too much on what I was going to write, rather than just enjoying the film. The break was uplifting and now im back to share. Shout outs to my supporters who kept asking and encouraging for more content, I do it for you guys.  It seemed appropriate to highlight some of the upcoming films I’m excited about.

99 Homes

99 Homes is actually not a new film. It debuted last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. To American audiences it will serve as Andy Garfield’s return to the silver screen after the lukewarm reception of “The Amazing Spider Man 2”. 99 Homes is a psychological thriller about struggling single father who is evicted from his home due to some corrupt real estate practices of Rick Carver, portrayed by BroadWalk Empire’s Michael Shannon. In his desperation, he is soon forced to work for Carver. His initial success is soon confronted with the immoral pitfalls of forcing people through the same shady eviction process as the one he fell victim to.
