Movie Review – Criminal

Criminal-Movie.

CIA Agent Billy Pope (Ryan Reynolds) is on the run in London and running out of time. Hunted by Hagbardaka Heimbahl (Jordi Molla) a Spanish terrorist, set on the destruction of the Western World; Pope has made a deal with a proficient hacker Jan “The Dutchman” Stroop (Michael Pitt). Stroop is in hiding but has access to the U.S. Military’s arsenal making him a high profile target to Hemibahl, The CIA and a number of groups on the Black Market. Finally captured and killed by Heimbahl’s men, the location of Stroop died with Pope. The race begins anew as London Field Office Director Quaker Wells (Gary Oldman) uses every available resource to him, including transferring the memories of the deceased Pope to a living person.

Dr. Franks (Tommy Lee Jones) has discovered a way to do it, however the perfect candidate is Jericho Stewart (Kevin Costner). Jericho is an unfeeling sociopath, housed in a supermax prison for the rest of his natural life. In a more invasive procedure than ‘Inception’, Jericho is infused with Pope’s memories. Slowly Jericho becomes aware of his plight and as the memories become clearer, but how willing is he to help anyone, especially the CIA given how expendable he is?

Movie Review – Draft Day

The lives of 200 men will change in an instant when their name is called by the commissioner; entering them into the NFL. It isn’t any different in the other team sports. Hockey, basketball and baseball all go through the same dog and pony show. The actions of the team’s General Manager can potentially make or break a season.   It’s a truly thankless job. Operating mostly behind the scenes, GMs around the league go largely unnoticed; until the team performs poorly. The draft brings hope to players and fans alike. The hope that a bad team can turn things around with a good draft and free agency, keeps loyal fans coming back each season. With the divide between the best and worst teams in the NFL widening, the draft may be more important than ever.

MOVIE REVIEW – The Company Men

The Company Men

Some movies are depressing to watch. Some are inspirational. This is a movie about people losing their jobs. So guess which one this movie is.
