Crop And Save
Looking for vengeance on the streets of San Francisco.
Lt. Frank Bullitt(Steve McQueen)is assigned to protect an organized crime informant Johnny Ross(Pat Renella). Bullitt is not known for conducting his business with kid gloves; let alone going by-the-book. Ross is scheduled to testify against his mob cronies before a Senate subcommittee in San Francisco. A high profile politician Walter Chalmers(Robert Vaughn)has his own devious self-serving reasons why Ross must testify. A pair of Chicago hit men find the supposed safe location and snuff out the witness. Chalmers, with all his influence, tries to come down hard on Bullitt, who won't be hindered in his quest for vengeance.
Violence is par for the times. Plenty of suspenseful cat-and-mouse and a legendary car chase sequence. Supporting cast is full of stars; some have yet met the peak of their stardom: Jacqueline Bisset, Robert Duvall, Simon Oakland, Norman Fell, Don Gordon, Vic Tayack and Georg Stanford Brown.
Mine Games (2012)
Typical young friends " take a trip" flick.

Would you repeat that please? Gritty!
From the dark, intellectual director Christopher Nolan, MEMENTO, written by Nolan and his brother Jonathan, comes a psychological thriller. A crime driven who-did-what-to-whom. Suffering short-term memory, Leonard Shelby(Guy Pearce), is determined to find the lowlife who murdered and raped his wife. "Don't call me Lenny" will have to use Polaroid snapshots of people and places, because of his head injury. He will even cover his body with tattoos with clues in desperation to jog his memory. Shelby, an ex-insurance investigator, will have to rely on his photos and some help from an abused waitress, Natalie(Carrie-Anne Moss)and a guy named Teddy(Joe Pantoliano), who is or isn't an undercover cop. It is a tedious quest with a twist that will leave you guessing. How well can you tell a story backwards? In supporting roles: Jorja Fox, Stephen Tobolowsky, Mark Boone Junior and Harriet Sansom Harris.
We Are What We Are (2013)
A family with macabre traditions.
The Parker family seems nice enough; a little stand offish and certainly hard to get to know. What they do in their own home is their own business. Following a family tragedy, Mrs. Parker drowning during a torrential rainstorm, the two teenage sisters are forced by their domineering father to carry on in her memory. This horror/drama is dark as it is disturbing. Frank Parker(Bill Sage)takes advantage of lost or listless people by leading them to their maker; he hacks, slices and chops them and puts them in home storage. Its the daughter's, Iris(Ambyr Childers)and Rose(Julia Garner), chore to fix soup out what their dad brings home. Pieces of teeth and bones floating in flood waters bring the authorities to discovering the Parker's secret of cannibalistic traditions. A very moody movie that comes to a very gory climax.
Rated R for the bloody images, disturbing and implied violence with some sexuality and nudity. The cast also features: Kelly McGillis, Michael Parks, Wyatt Russell, Nick Damici and Jack Gore.
Draft Day (2014)
A much anticipated day...NFL Draft Day!
A busy, breezy sports drama. A much anticipated, life-changing, career making day for a few hundred young men that have dreams of playing in the NFL. General Managers and coaches can even either be retained or given their walking papers. Sonny Weaver(Kevin Costner)is the GM of the Cleveland Browns and has the chance to save football in his city by trading for a concensus number one pick. The clock is ticking and two other situations occupy his train of thought...the owner of the team is looking for a good excuse to fire him; and his personal assistant(Jennifer Garner)is pregnant and his decision might just cost him their relationship. And by the way, there is a highly-touted quarterback with an iffy future to deal with. Trading three future number one picks and a current number seven pick for the much sought after #1 pick will just be the first of Weaver's wheeling and dealing. At the end of this pressure cooker day, will he still have his job; will he have the players he really wants on the field; and will his personal life still be intact? DRAFT DAY also features: Denis Leary, Frank Langella, Chadwick Boseman, Sam Elliott, Dave Donaldson, Chi McBride, Anthony Rizzo, Dion Sanders, Patrick St. Esprit, Josh Pence, Ellen Burstyn and Chris Berman.

Dawn on the Great Divide (1942)
Wagon wheels roll west.
This 63 minute Monogram Pictures western is based on a story by James Curwood, Wheels Of Fate. Buck Jones made six movies in 1942 and DAWN on the GREAT DIVIDE is the last before his death. Buck Roberts(Jones)finds himself leading a slow moving wagon train that not only is full of folks looking for a new start; but there is also railroad supplies that are not a well kept secret. Jim Corkle(Harry Woods)and his band of "no gooders", dressed as Indians, are poised to rob the wagon train of the supplies needed by the railroad, but are out of luck when Buck separates the wagons in two directions before the raid.
Tragedy, heartbreak and gunfights...all the things you go to the Saturday matinée to see. Not one of Jones' better efforts, but staid and solid as a rock as always. Major filming location was the Walker Ranch in Newhall, California and as most wagon train movies...some awesome scenery. The apt supporting cast features: Mona Barrie, Robert Frazer, Raymond Hatton, Rex Bell, Warren Jackson and Maude Eburne.
