‘2012’ movie delivered excitement,anticipation & suspense. Columbia Pictures unleashed its world destruction movie on us all,this weekend. I just got back from seeing it,and I must say that I personally was not disappointed with it.

Some critics didn’t like it,but I thought it was a freakin blast to watch. The special effects,the plot,and the buildup ,all served their purpose well.

The movie focused on Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) who’s a limo driver and a father to two kids that are living with his ex-wife and her surgeon boyfriend. And apparently,he had also written a book.

They all eventually came together as one united family when Jackson finds out the world is about to end, from a eccentric loony named Charlie Frost (Woody Harrelson). Read more »

“The Box” movie delivered major,unique,weirdness,and it was kinda good. Yes, the new Warner Bros. Pictures movie really outdid itself in the weirdness department. However,it was very unique and kept me intrigued,the entire time. It stars: Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, and Frank Langella .

“The Box” focused around characters, Norma Lewis (Cameron Diaz) and Arthur Lewis (James Marsden) who get offered a mysterious box from a weird old guy named Arlington Steward.

Oh,yeah,and half his face was burned off,to give him some extra weirdness. I could barely pay attention too what he was saying as I gazed at the outline of his teeth and jaw from his burnt off face. But,anyways, I digress.

Okay,so he offers them the strange box,and tells them, if they push the button, someone somewhere in the world, that they don’t know will die. However,they will receive a payment of a million dollars. Read more »
