Prisoners Movie Review

prisoners movie reviewWe went to see Prisoners the first weekend it was out. The Previews looked too good to wait! And, we weren’t disappointed. The movie has a great cast of actors, and they fit their part perfectly. You may think you have it all figured out as the movie progresses, but the twists and turns of this movie are like riding a raging roller coster. (no plot spoilers here)

There are not to many long movies that keep my attention and keep me entertained throughout, but this one did! With a 2 hour 30 minute run time, I thought hubby would be looking at his watch, getting ancy, and thinking about smoking. But….surprisingly enough, we were both transfixed to the very end!

Bravo to them for making a great movie with a great story line, and not depending on special effects that so many major movies depend on. There are a few graphically violent scenes in the movie. So if you are sensitive to that, you may not want to see this flick. However, if you are able to realize that this is a Movie and NOT real, then you will do fine through those parts!

Honestly…we had a hard time separating reality from the movie, as we left the theater talking about what happened to some of the characters after the movie! LoL…like “hmmm I wonder if so and so went to jail for that?” Ha Ha! Took us a few minutes to snap out of it and get back to reality. And isn’t that the whole purpose of going to the movies? Escaping from reality for a few hours?

I give this movie 5 lollipops! I hope this Prisoners Movie Review helps you decide!

Make Money Playing the Florida Lottery

Even if Your Ticket Never Wins!

florida lottery

“If I can show you a home-based business
that pays you $7,925 per month to play the Florida lottery, would you be
willing to watch a DVD (or go to a website) for 15 minutes.”? Yes? Then Click Here Now 

Even if you hate the lottery, you need to check this out!

Millions play it every day and you can make an ABSOLUTE FORTUNE by showing them a proven system that increases odds and pays them to play

  • You are playing on REAL tickets in the real, Legal, Florida Lottery
  • You Don’t Have to Know a Single Thing About the Lottery. In fact, I always hated the lottery, but playing on all those tickets is a nice side benefit to the monthly income this system puts in your pocket.
  • This works from anywhere in the world, even places with no lottery. All 50 US States, and Any Country!
  • Imagine, being able to cash in on the sale of lottery tickets (just like state agencies do), even if they are worthless losers!
  • Can be done by anyone. Zero Experience required.
  • Proven and Foolproof. You will have access to a system that’s been secretly in use for over a decade. The state agencies would rather you NOT know this exists!

You probably think that the only way to play the Florida lottery is by purchasing tickets at a retailer, like 7-Eleven.

And outside of what you are about to see, that is true.

The people, besides ticket winners, who actually make money in the lottery are the government or state agencies that sell the tickets and the beneficiaries of the proceeds from sales (like state education).  Retailers make a tiny percentage of sales, not enough to survive on if that’s all they sold.

But what if you could “squeeze your way” in between and be a “middle person” on the transactions of thousands of lottery tickets, and get paid for your services?

Better yet, what if you could also get a percentage of all winnings on tickets you are a “middle person” for?

There are plenty of systems available today to try and increase odds in the lottery. People spend money on all sorts of techniques that do very little to increase odds. Things like analyzing hot numbers or histories, wheeling systems, and more.

The number one way to increase odds in any lottery drawing is to purchase more tickets, and that’s something most of these systems will have you doing anyway.

Traditionally, lottery pools win most jackpots. The reason why is they have more buying power, so they are able to purchase more tickets. One of the largest Powerball jackpots, over $300 million dollars, was won by workers at the ConAgra Food Plant. A group of workers got together, pooled their money, bought tickets, and split the proceeds amongst the pool members.

However, lottery pools have a tremendous downside.
As the size of the pool increases, potential payouts decrease proportionally.

For example, if you were in a lottery pool with a group of 10 people (including yourself) and any of the tickets won anything, you would get ten percent. If this pool were 100 people, you would get one percent. Eventually, it would reach a point where you wouldn’t want to bother being in the pool because even though odds would be much better by playing on many more tickets, your actual proceeds would be slim.

Lotto Magic changes all of that.

Kick Ass 2 Review

kick ass 2Movie Info

His heroic antics having inspired a citywide wave of masked vigilantes, Kick-Ass (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) joins their ranks to help clean up the streets, only to face a formidable challenge when the vengeful Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) transforms himself into the world’s first super villain in this sequel written and directed by Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down). Dave/Kick-Ass and Mindy/Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) are about to graduate high school and become a crime-fighting duo when their noble plans are foiled by Mindy’s strict parents. Now, as Mindy hangs up her Hit Girl uniform and navigates the treacherous high-school social scene, Kick-Ass begins patrolling the streets with Justice Forever, a fearless group of urban watchdogs fronted by former mob thug Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey). They’ve got the criminal element on the run when Chris D’Amico lays his Red Mist persona to rest, and reemerges as The Mother F**ker, a powerful criminal mastermind with a loyal legion of henchmen. The Mother F**ker is determined to avenge the death of his late father, who previously perished at the hands of Kick-Ass and Hit Girl. Now, as The Mother F**ker and his minions begin targeting the members of Justice Forever, Hit Girl realizes that the only way to save Kick-Ass and his new friends is to emerge from her forced retirement, and fight back with everything she’s got.

So the review: Via http://www.policymic.com/articles/60995/kick-ass-2-review-can-hit-girl-save-the-movie-from-itself

Picture a foul-mouthed, sword-wielding, grizzled anti-hero — you’re probably not envisioning a teenage girl. When Kick-Ass introduced us to Mindy Macready aka “Hit-Girl” (Chloë Grace Moretz) in 2010, it was quite a shock, though she filled the role of a big-talking, intimidating hero with ease. Critics of the film were uncomfortable with a thirteen-year-old girl throwing the C-word around while committing acts of mass murder (though I suspect many detractors might have felt differently had Hit-Girl been Hit Boy). Still, Hit-Girl became a cultural phenomenon: a strong and complex female character in a traditionally male genre.

It’s exciting, then, to see

Kick-Ass 2

(released earlier this month) focus squarely on Mindy as she overcomes the brutal murder of her father while struggling with her calling as a crime fighter alongside her obligation to her new family. The film excels here for numerous reasons, but most importantly it doesn’t completely “masculinize” Mindy. She faces the same problems as many other teenage girls — fitting in, mean girls, her first kiss — while still managing to waste a bad guy or 12. What’s interest is that it’s the everyday problems she contends with that makes her realize that she’s meant to be a hero. It’s a refreshing portrayal and one that allows her to be both strong and vulnerable.

Unfortunately, where Mindy succeeds, those around her fail. Writer/director Jeff Wadlow gives us a plethora of female characters to invest in, yet most are nothing more than stereotypes, seemingly less about genuine characterization than advancing the plot.

Much of Kick Ass 2 is taken up by the so-called “mean girls” of Mindy’s high school. Led by Brooke (Claudia Lee), they are a cliché portrayal of teenage girls — shallow, mean, and ready to turn on you in a second if you deign to be better at cheerleading than them. It’s obvious that their two-dimensional purpose is to provide a foil for the deeper, more mature Mindy.

This underdeveloped portrayal of women extends to those in the film meant to represent strength: “superheroes” like Night Bitch. She fights alongside her male counterparts and looks good doing it. However, her role in crime fighting is simply a way of introducing her to Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) world. Much like Mindy’s cohorts, Night Bitch only really exists to motivate Kick-Ass and their dynamic is particularly disturbing. Not only is Night Bitch the requisite love interest, she also becomes the damsel in distress. Without revealing any major spoilers, the primary villain — Christopher Mintz-Plasse’s the Motherfucker — attempts to exact revenge on Kick-Ass is by beating and raping Night Bitch. While the rape trope itself is problematic, the way in which the film attempts to bring “humor” to the attack is painful to watch (a “get it up” joke is involved).

Perhaps the filmmakers would argue that bringing levity to rape is consistent with the film’s tone of gratuitous violence juxtaposed against crude humour. However, where the violence of the film may be equal-opportunity, life isn’t — and this moment felt unnecessary at best. If Night Bitch and the rape had been omitted from the film, the plot wouldn’t have suffered in any way.

This doesn’t detract from Hit-Girl, who may not be the titular hero but is clearly the protagonist; and the reason Kick-Ass 2 is an interesting film.

It’s too bad the characters around her are so lacking. It seems the best we can hope for is one developed female character per film, and Hit-Girl hits the quota.

So can Hit-Girl save Kick Ass 2 from itself? Not entirely, but it’s fun to watch her try.
