August Rush

Children's No Comments »

August Rush is the story of an eleven-year-old boy who is raised by the state of NY searching for his parents, who do not even know he exists.  It is pretty impressive for a woman to have a child and not know about it, but Keri Russell’s character does it.  I think that the movie is not only about an eleven-year-old, but probably written by one too.  Watching the movie is like listening to a little kid tell a story.  “But then they are all in New York, but like he hears music so he knows his parents are musicians and he has never played music, but then he gets to go to Julliard and he is the best student in the school, but then he has to go because of this mean guy…”  I like Robin Williams reprising his role as Peter Pan.

Jumpin’ Jack Flash

Action, Spy/Espionage, Thriller No Comments »

Hundreds of millions of bored office workers sit in front of computers forwarding emails, blogging, IMing, and playing on social network sites. These distracted corporate employees have accidentally created the Bored at Work Network (BWN) — a huge people-powered network with greater even reach than traditional networks like CNN, ABC, or the BBC.

James pointed out that Whoopi Goldberg’s character in Jumpin’ Jack Flash might be the very first member of the Bored at Work Network.  Imagine in the old days of BWN, we got to do things like help secret agents escape Russia.  Now all we do is watch stupid videos on Youtube.  My favorite part of the movie is that the hunky British agent Jack is played by Jonathan Pryce.  I love to see him get to be the winner sometimes.
