Stuck in Love

Release Date: April, 2013

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Plot Outline: Over the course of a year, a writer, his ex-wife, and their son and daughter learn about the complexities of love in all of its forms.

Review: Stuck in Love is a film about relationships and family and the complications that come with these relationships. While the film had a lot of drama, it was realistic and relatable. The characters were all flawed but lovable in their own way. The characters were realistically written and complex. This is a family drama that runs deep but leaves you with hope.

I enjoyed watching Stuck in Love even though I avoided it at first because of its cheesy title. The title does not do it justice. This was a great film that I feel is being held back by a subpar title.

This is a film that is best watched with girlfriends, some wine, popcorn, and a box of tissues. Enjoy! Its adorable!

Release Date: March, 2011

Plot Outline: Two misfit best friends incapable of growing up, whose direction is tested by an abandoned child, worn beyond his years; together they invent the family they’ve always needed (IMDB.com).

Rating: 5/5

A Bag of Hammers…where do I begin? This is the best film I have seen in a long time! That is the only accurate place to start. Everything was perfection…the plot, the acting, the music…

What an incredible film. This is definitely a tear jerker but such a feel good comedy. I cried sad tears, I cried happy tears. This film broke my heart and then melded it back together. A Bag of Hammers is a roller-coaster of emotions and you will enjoy the ride!

When the film ended I just sat and let it all sink in. I could not believe what a fantastic film I had just seen. How is this film not more popular? Why hasn’t everyone seen A Bag of Hammers? Why isn’t everyone talking about this? These are the questions I asked myself for days and weeks after seeing the film. I recommended it to anyone that would listen to me rant about it.

Instead of going on and on about this film I will say this: A Bag of Hammers is a must see. It will forever be on my long list of favorite films. What a unique gem.

The Last Days

Plot Outline: A deadly form of agoraphobia mysteriously takes over the world.

Rating: 3.5/5

Heads up, this film has subtitles. It is in Spanish.

The Last Days was nothing short of fascinating. I very much enjoyed watching this film. I thought the metaphors and symbolism throughout the film were extremely clever and well utilized. While watching the film I was amazed and my mind was racing. Not only was The Last Days entertaining and emotional, but it also held a lot of meaning and successfully delivered its many messages to the audience.

Online, I have seen many people asking why this illness occurred, asking to get to the root of it and see if there is a cure but this is not like other epidemic/illness type films. Asking these questions is not the purpose of the film. It is not important to know how or why this happened. The important aspect of this film is the consequences. Hearing the messages being delivered are the purpose of this film.

Great film! Entertaining, emotional, will keep you on the edge of your seat at times, and full of meaning. It’s the whole package.
