New Movie Poster – Vanishing Point

vanishingpointOne of my favorite car chase movies, Vanishing Point. It’d be nice to see it on the full screen again.

Real Steel (2011)

Got around to watching Real Steel tonight. I honestly had no intention of watching this movie, had actually forgotten about it. Boy, what a surprise it was. Set in the near future (2020), where robot boxing is a top sport, a struggling promoter feels he’s found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it, you won’t be disappointed!

What Men Want For Christmas 2011, Day 26

wilsonWilson Castaway Volleyball – Know someone that loves playing volleyball or just needs someone to talk to? Then the Wilson Castaway Volleyball would make a great gift idea. Based off of Tom Hanks’ Castaway movie, this is an official Wilson Volleyball with Hank’s bloody handprint face imprinted. Disclaimer: not Tom Hanks’ real blood. This would be a great conversation piece, especially for the movie buff! Cost: $15.00.

Always (1989)

Pete Sandich and buddy Al Yackey are daredevil aerial forest-fire fighters. Pete finds True Love with Dorinda but won’t give up the job. When he takes one risk too many, Dorinda faces deep grief and cannot easily put her life back together.
Pete is a pilot who drops water on forest fires at very low heights. His intended Dorinda is also a pilot who doubles as a radio controller for the pilots who do this work. Pete always takes chances, confident that his skill will bring him through. One day it doesn’t and he is killed. He finds himself returning as an invisible ghost who’s presence is barely felt giving advice to his successor. Pete then finds that his successor is also falling in love with Dorinda.

Always, one of my all time favorites!

Cars 2

Last week, we went to see Cars 2. The first Cars movie has been one of our favorite animated movies since it’s release in 2006, so we had high expectations for the new movie, especially since we watched it in 3D. And while 3D added a whole new element to the movie, we just didn’t think it was as good as the first one. Not that it was a bad movie, it just wasn’t as good as the first. However, we’d have no problem recommending it to anybody who’s interested in seeing it. Overall, a great movie for the whole family. BTW, the nod to Paul Newman in the movie was a classy move.
