Good life
7 September 2018
We are a sum of all our experiences. In this tale a contestant winning steak is questioned not because of what he knows but because of where he comes from. It retraces his life's journey. This movie highlights those unimaginable poor slums and the complexity of class in modern society. The movie is as fresh today as when it came out. Dr Wilson Triviño

A true breakout comeback role for Burt Reynolds. It tracks the life of a once Hollywood superstar. Time stops for no one and this movie explores the complexity of life after a finicky public has passed on a star's glory days. Some poinent scenes that bring out Burt Reynolds acting skills. A touching tribute to this mega superstar. Dr Wilson Triviño

This movie is really about living a safe life or taking a chance on living your dreams. Time don't stop for anyone and that's what the two main protagonist discover. It also explores the fragile discovery that tour idols may not really be the image that you hold as the true one. Overall a sweet story of discovering a way to live your own path. Dr Wilson Trivino

Black power
6 September 2018
A movie based loosely on real life events, the unfortuate fate of the black man. What I found tiresome what the continued use of all the racial sterotypes you would expect. Slow moving in some parts. It was interesting to peek behind the veil of the KKK.

Perv Puppets
6 September 2018
Most reviews were tough on this film and I was hesitant in watching it on the big screen. But who can resist puppets? No matter how perverted they may be. It is a silly movie with and interest plot. Who is killing all the puppets in a pattern that makes no sense? I liked it and enjoyed the cheap laughs. Don't be expecting rocket science. Just be ready to laugh out loud.

What is the price of freedom worth when you are wrongly accused. This tale takes you behind the prison walls and up the corridors of power. Sometimes unsavory character have to build alliances to reach an intended consequence. Some violent scenes and close calls, this movie is intense.

Revenge can be a strong motivator. In Peppermint, a mother sees the assasination of her husband and daughter. She seeks justice only to be let down by a corrupt system. She takes on the system and in her own way tries to right a wrong. A very intense film, it is full of suspense and action. Never underestimate a scorn woman who has nothing to lose.

Rolling rock
27 August 2018
As chronicled in the book Bowling Alone of the changing trends of the white America´s tradition of bowling decline. This movie centers on the African American tie to a tradition skating. It is a component that weaves the community. Unfortunately there has been a sharp decline in the availability of skating arenas. They have closed due to economic down turn and shifting Main Street trends. The movie chronicles an overview of the skating community. I found it interesting and insightful of a world I was not aware of. I saw this as part of the 2018 Bronze Film Festival

Money money money
27 August 2018
This movie is more than a story of a bunch of rich Asians brats. It is about love and what you will do to get it and keep it. Is it worth the sacrifice simply to live happily ever after¿ Besides the Gabsty style attitude of living the good life, this movie showcases strong women. How they are the ones that keep the home front and determine the direction of the future. Interesting to me to see all these Asians both condeem but relish in the Western World of luxury. Overall a good story and one that captures the changing new Asia world.

The Dude
13 August 2018
I saw in the theater the 20 year anniversary showing of this cult classic. The dude is a still an interesting character as he deals with an array of individuals with competing interest. It is a funny and witty tale about finding your way and discovering how you fit in a complex situation. Long live the 'dude'.

Tradition
13 August 2018
Every year in a sleepy town in Japan, Taiji there is a ritual of hunting whales and dolphins. From the outside it seems cruel and unusual. But from the inside it comes from a long tradition. The movie shows both sides and showcases how a 400 year tradition struggles in a modern social conscious world. Lots of beautiful shots and a story of strong views on both sides.

Watch your back
13 August 2018
This movie is full of adventure. What seems as a mild manner man, the main character is a good doer in a world full unsavory characters. Does have some violent scenes but overall pretty suspense-filled.
