A Good Job on Jobs
Without knowing all the ins and outs and nuances of Silicon Valley and its inhabitants, I felt this movie reflected a complex and difficult man rather adequately! Ashton Kutcher was credible from an outsider's standpoint; dramatic and fiery enough to show the ruthless side of a genius gone awry and contemplative during the more reflective moments. I would wonder what those who were really close to Steve Jobs thought of this performance. I feel it was noteworthy and even felt that the movie moved along with sufficient speed to note the iterations that Apple was making and their impact on the market. Looking at the entire performance as one entitled "The Leader Skills of Steve Jobs", I think there are various deep tribal influences into his leadership skills and the visions he imparted, without living to fulfill all his variables for the company he founded. I never would have expected such a CREDIBLE job of Ashton Kutcher morphing into Steve Jobs! His acting was believable, although techies would argue it was not fully accurate in portraying Steve Jobs in a myriad of ways. For the layman, it was great and enjoyable. I plan to take several teen-age children to see it so they will not take for granted that this life-changing machine we use so frequently had an agonizing beginning and painful birth!
Here Comes the Boom (2012)
High school biology teacher decided to save the music teacher's job by
Went with my friend who would never have gone to a fight movie; however, this movie had more to do with friendship, saving a teacher's job and a school's music program as well. Trained with tough MMW guys one of whom it met while teaching citizenship to immigrants. Soon because their hero because of all he was determined to save the school's program and the quality of the kids' education. LOTS of rough slam and blam...but few if any cuss words and great to see fighters who prayed and asked God's help and prayed over their food. No swearing--so that PROVES it can be done! Very entertaining and funny--people who obviously loved playing in this film. Hearwarming and affirming of doing the right thing even when hard. Also good messages about immigration and being PROUD to be Americans! Overall positive message on many levels.The only kissing was through wire fence! Go see it so they'll make more of this quality!
John Adams (2008)
A Work of Genius Regarding our Founding Fathers
This is truly a work of genius and HBO's finest presentation yet! The cooperation between the British actors, the director and his staff, and the Americans was an example of the finest collaboration possible. The actors gave credence to their roles superbly and fleshed out the reality of the enormous struggle for independence. As David McCullough said, this was the confluence of the right men at the right time coming together united with one purpose. Nothing prior to this has been so eloquently done and by such an outstanding cast, both American and English--portraying the best of American determination, fortitude, purpose and dedication! BRAVO TO ALL INVOLVED! Paul Giamotti, Laura Linney, David Morse, Tom Wilkinson, and the gentleman playing Jefferson (as well as the entire cast) are to be commended for producing their finest work.

King of Kings (1961)
Straightforward, non-editorializing, rendition of the Life of Christ
A movie that I have always loved; was impressed enough as a child to want to know more about Jesus...as Barabbas stated: "Why did He die in my place??" We can all say that! It is proof of His love for us; well detailed and presented to make it desirable to investigate the claims of Christ on our lives! Had to question the narrator pronouncing the word "apost-kles" instead of "apostles", the way it is spelled. I wonder if this movie affected its actors to examine their lives in light of the Way, the Truth, and the Life...as it did the actors in "Godspell". Once a pastor asked how many of us had seen and been affected by the movies "King of Kings", "The Robe" "Demitrius and the Gladiators", and others of that genre. Surprised, most of us answered yes...it was the first time we had seriously considered a commitment to Christ, and knowing Him personally. The music in this rendition was absolutely superb. This story would resonate with most of America today, but would NEVER be suitable for Hollywood now, given the tendency to secularism and homosexuality! Judi Talcott Rogers
