"Draft Day" (2014)- Review

Image
I wasn't very interested in this movie-but had a screening pass for it. It was definitely a football-centeted movie. Costner & Garner had on screen chemistry and they BOTH knew about football. It seemed as if I was observing how the NFL draft works as an intern or a behind-the-scenes man. Lol. It was really good and intense. I think people will love this film and it will do good at the Box Office. There were funny parts throughout the movie, but it was sarcastic humor. I loved it & more than anyone could have anticipated. Get drafted! Anyone who is an NFL fan will LOVE this film! If not....you're at risk to get drafted!

The movie is NOT scary but some of the images and somewhat reeking & gruesome scenes can make you flinch! I shut my eyes BEFORE something bloody and disgusting was about to happen. I could see by the way a certain was going that I was not going to like the final outcome & I was right. The actress who played the older sister played her role great, but her one flaw was that she was talking too fast! All the while she was videotaping her story of the mirror, I was thinking to myself that she'd make a great news anchor. Lol. She was the take charge actress. The movie was hard to follow for the simple fact that it was shown in parallel worlds so you could not tell if something was real or fake, a dream or the present, the past in the present, an illusion from the present in the past, etc. It was very psychological than scary. That made it NOT PREDICTABLE & I LOVED that about the movie! It was entertaining to watch but you have to watch it more than once to understand becsus…

"Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (2014)- Review

I really wanted to see this movie on Opening Weekend, but it could not be helped. I saw it two weeks after its debut! Chris Evans was a beast and Scarlett was a badass leather know-it-all Diva! Those two actors have compatiable on screen chemistry! Jackson was still his usual sarcastic seld as Nick Fury. Had a GREAT time being highly entertained by Captain America & the sassy Black Widow!!! I can see why this movie has been a Box Office success. This movie, to me was better than the first film. It seems like sequels always seem better than originals or is it just me who thinks this theory? Lol. I was just amazed at how the movie was centered on Steve Rogers and Natasha. I figured out who the bad guy was besides The Winter Soldier. I was not surprised that it was who it was. Like Nick said to the Cap; "trust no one & he did not know himself who he could trust." As soon as that was said, I KNEW the bad guy was _________! A valueable lesson to be learned is that you can…
