Inkheart : Every story ever written is just waiting to become real.

This sleeper family hit was much overlooked by the industry when it came out three years ago. It could be the heavy European overtones, or the fact that it was a subject matter that was hard for mainstream Hollywood to grasp at, but Inkheart is a movie that really should not be missed. So, let me tell you a bit about Mortimer Folchart (Brendan Fraser) and his family.

Mortimer or “Mo” for short, is what is known as a “silvertongue”. He has a magical ability to bring life to fictional characters and things from books as he reads them. One night, as he was reading the book “Inkheart” to his daughter and wife, his talent came to life, and suddenly his world was turned upside down as two villainous characters known as “Capricorn” (Andy Serkis) and “Basta” (Jamie Foreman) came from the book. The downside of having the abilities of a silvertongue is that if someone comes out a book, someone from this world is drawn back into the book. That night, Mo lost his wife, Resa Folchart (Sienna Guillory) to this magic, and has been searching for this rare book, Inkheart, ever since. Not only did he release Capricorn that night, but another character, Dustfinger (Paul Bettany), an entertainer with the ability to manipulate fire, and a little mischievous ferret with horns, Gwin, as well.

Red (2010) Still Armed. Still Dangerous. Still Got It

This high action film stars the talents of Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Helen Mirren. These actors and actresses are fantastic in the roles that they have in this film and they portray them so well that you can not help but to fall in love with each and every one of them. They carry the film in ways that you don’t think possible by helping you believe that they are indeed who they seem to be, ex-CIA operatives and an innocent telephone operator.

When the film first start you are thinking that this was not the film that you saw all the previews for, but it is there to show you just how dull and boring the life of Frank Moses is. Every month he makes sure something happens to his check so that he can call the one other person in the world that he likes to listen to. Sarah Ross is totally bored with her job and dreams of traveling and it would see that the only high part of her job is when she gets to talk to Frank to get another check issued. Both are bored and just want to get to do something instead of the nothing they fell that they are doing.
