Another Take By Zac: Film Review: The Help

Posted: August 10, 2011 at 12:10 am   /   Another Take From Zac, Local, Movie Reviews

The Help is built around a lot of strong performances, but the film doesn’t bring anything new to the table, and does only a couple things really well beyond the acting. An adaptation of the best selling novel, most of you probably know the story.  The film looks at life in Jackson, Mississippi in the […]

“The Debt” HD Trailer Starring Helen Mirren, Sam Worthington, Tom Wilkinson, and Cirian Hinds

Posted: July 21, 2010 at 12:17 am   /   Local, Movie Trailers

My first thoughts upon seeing the trailer for The Debt was how well the actors were cast for the two separate time periods.
