Movie Review: ‘Winter’s Tale’ Starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe
Feb 2014 16

154732While Valentine’s Day may mean chocolate, stuffed animals and little trinkets for most couples – others may choose to see one of the many “love story” movies that the studios put out every year. Now we can say, for the most part, that a lot of these movies are pretty run-of-the-mill generic. I wasn’t too thrilled about some of the options available this year, but Winter’s Tale did peak my interest, mainly due to its impressive cast—Russell Crowe, Colin Farrell and a few others I will choose to omit for the sake of the surprise and plot of the movie.

Winter’s Tale does a respectable job at trying to pull you into its romanticized, magical version of New York City. This isn’t like the New York you and I know. No. This is one that’s populated by magic that people are used to. It’s really the only explanation I have for the way people seem NOT to react to flying horses and demon faces. The movie follows an orphan, Peter Lake, played by the always likeable Colin Farrell. Lake’s had a rough life; he never knew his loving parents, he had to steal to survive and he hated hurting people to do so. That last character trait has put him into a risky situation with his former employer and all around evil thug, Pearly Soames, portrayed by the charismatic Russell Crowe.

Eric Church’s “The Outsiders” Album Review
Feb 2014 13

Very seldom is there an album that comes out that truly gets me excited.

Eric Church The Outsiders Album CoverI guess Pearl Jam’s recent album could count as one that I was stoked about, but that is about it. Enter Eric Church, country music’s modern day outlaw. He’s a man among boys in today’s world of country music. While Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean are selling out arena’s singing about beer drinking, riding trains and break-ups, Church is selling out his own concert’s with songs about whiskey drinking, fighting, and smoking weed. Church’s last album,”Chief,” was a chart-topping success, selling millions, and making the 36-year old a country music star. After touring in support of the album for two-plus years, Church is back with “The Outsiders.”

“The Outsiders” brings a little bit of everything to the table. If you’re a rock fan who first discovered Church opening for Metallica, you will love the lead track, which is the title of the album. While the song feels like it was forced into the new album, it’s a rousing country/rock piece that will surely be a crowd-pleaser at live shows.

Movie Review: ‘RoboCop’ Starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, and Samuel Jackson
Feb 2014 12

robocop posterIn 1987, RoboCop blew moviegoers away (no pun intended) with its blend of over the top violence, revolutionary special effects, and biting social commentary (it was the 80′s after all), all wrapped into a perfect storm of an 80′s action movie.

To me, the original source material was so unique and timeless that it never needed a remake.  Sure the 1987 version looks dated and maybe the technology is now irrelevant, but it’s the guts of the movie that made it so perfect.  So the question I was asking myself as I settled in to see a 2014 version of RoboCop was, “What can they say that hasn’t been said already?” I would soon realize the 2014 version could have just as much to say about the state of our country as the 1987 version.

In this version, director Jose Pahila makes some adjustments from the original so that it fits into what could be a conceivable American future. The film is set in 2028 and one of the biggest issues in the United States is the use of robotic drones for Military applications – as well as on the streets of America.  With many Americans fearing that robots have no emotions or moral code, robotics manufacturer OmniCorp and its CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) are forced to explore a new idea: putting a man inside a machine.
