The Imitation Game

It has been quite a while since I have gone to see a movie. I saw the trailer for this movie and knew that I had to see it on the big screen for myself. This week I want to share with you a film that is an absolute must see in theatre.

In THE IMITATION GAME, Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Alan Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII. Turing went on to assist with the development of computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but was prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts which the country deemed illegal.

The Imitation Game is based on the biography Alan Turing: The Enigma:

Movie Night: The Heat (2013)

Now that the weekend is here, it is time to check out another great movie.  My weekend movie suggestion is The Heat staring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy.  Last night, I had the pleasure of sharing this awesome movie with my buddy Sheldon.  I can only speak for myself, but I don’t think  we have laughed so hard at a film in a long time.

Bullock plays the character of an uptight FBI agent tasked with a case to take down a drug lord in Boston to prove to her boss that she is ready for a promotion.  Upon her arrival, she finds herself forced to work with a foul-mouthed, local police officer played by McCarthy.  These two phonetical female comedians will have you rolling between the seats laughing.

This film was directed by Paul Feig, who also directed the 2011 comedy Bridesmaids.  This movie features great laughs, big explosions, an awesome cast, and a great storyline to go with it.  Be advised that there is a lot of foul language, but I felt it was tastefully used in character and along with the story line.  That being said, this movie is certainly not one that I would bring the kids to.

I’d give this movie 10 thumbs up if I had that many, but I am limited to only 2.  Trust me though, this gets two REALLY big thumbs up.  Check out the trailer below and let me know your thoughts on the movie in the comments.  Have an awesome weekend!

Movie Night: The Call

When is the last time that you stayed in and watched a really good movie?  For me, it has been quite some time.  Trying to work, travel, blog, keep up with all the television shows that I am obsessed with, and still have time for friends leaves me with little time to just lay around and enjoy a movie.

If you haven’t seen The Call yet, I suggest you make time this weekend to rent it.  Featuring Halle Berry, this movie kept me on the edge of my seat.  Check out the trailer below and have an awesome Friday!
