American Animals - Movie (from The Orchard) Review! #AmericanAnimals


Synopsis:
American Animals is the unbelievable but entirely true story of four young men who attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history. The film centers around two friends from the middle-class suburbs of Lexington, Kentucky. Spencer (Barry Keoghan), is determined to become an artist but feels he lacks the essential ingredient that unites all great artists – suffering. His closest friend, Warren (Evan Peters), has also been raised to believe that his life will be special, and that he will be unique in some way. But as they leave the suburbs for universities in the same town, the realities of adult life begin to dawn on them and with that, the realization that their lives may in fact never be important or special in any way. Determined to live lives that are out of the ordinary, they plan the brazen theft of some of the world’s most valuable books from the special collections room of Spencer's college Library. Enlisting two more friends, accounting major Eric (Jared Abrahamson) and fitness fanatic Chas (Blake Jenner), and taking their cues from heist movies, the gang meticulously plots the theft and subsequent fence of the stolen artworks. Although some of the group begin to have second thoughts, they discover that the plan has seemingly taken on a life of its own. Unfolding from multiple perspectives, and innovatively incorporating the real-life figures at the heart of the story, writer-director Bart Layton (The Imposter) takes the heist movie into bold new territory.

Written and Directed by: Bart Layton
Produced by: Derrin Schlesinger, Katherine Butler, Dimitri Doganis, Mary Jane Skalski
Starring: Evan Peters ("American Horror Story"), Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk), Blake Jenner (The Edge of Seventeen), Ann Dowd ("The Handmaid’s Tale"), Udo Kier (Downsizing)
Run time: 117 mins.



My Review:
It was neat seeing how they made sure most everything was planned down to the finest detail. Then they went to do the heist, and they had to abort. So they set it up to do the next day. It was interesting to see the feelings of the men as they re-prepare, again, to do it the next day.

When things did go down, they were super stressful. They tied the lady up, she wet her pants in the process. They then can't find the keys to open the case! Will they pull it off? Will they be caught? Or will they give up, yet again? This is a good movie! And even more great that it was based on a true story, and to find out what all four boys are doing now.



AMERICAN ANIMALS is now available to own via digital platforms and available to stream on demand August 28!

Blindspot: The Complete Third Season Review and DVD Set #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 9/5 #Blindspot

Disclosure: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of "Blindspot: The Complete Third Season" on DVD that I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own. No other compensation was exchanged or received.



I have been watching the "Blindspot" TV show since it began. It's never boring, almost always full of action and interesting twists and turns. You never can trust anyone because you never know whose a double agent and who isn't. I just can't stop watching it! I wondered exactly where Jane Doe came from in the first season. Now that I know how she came about, at the end of season two, she found her daughter. "Blindspot" is action packed! Filled with some romance once in a while, beautiful scenery and outfits! Great characters! At the end of season three, her daughter is kidnapped as they were just getting to know one another. I can't wait to see what season four has in store!

Check out the information below! Enter below for a chance to Win a copy of Blindspot: Season 3 on DVD. Then make sure to find a way with your cable company or your online streaming website, to watch seasons 1 and 2!

A new set of tattoos emerges, a bounty is put on Jane and the rest of Weller’s FBI team is kidnapped. Season three of Blindspot, the compelling NBC crime drama, starts off with a bang as more intriguing secrets are revealed. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment brings all the mystery and excitement to consumers with the release of Blindspot: The Complete Third Season, available on DVD Today, August 21, 2018. From creator Martin Gero (Bored to Death, The L.A. Complex) and Berlanti Productions (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Blindspot: The Complete Third Season features 22 intriguing episodes plus extras, including a new featurette, deleted scenes, and a gag reel. Blindspot: The Complete Third Season will retail for $39.99 SRP. The third season of Blindspot is also available to own on Digital via purchase from digital retailers.

The non-stop adrenaline rush continues in the third electrifying season of Blindspot. Following the shocking second season finale, which revealed a new set of bioluminescent tattoos that mysteriously appeared on Jane Doe’s body, season three jumps forward two years as FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton, 300: Rise of an Empire, Strike Back) finally tracks down Jane (Jaimie Alexander, Thor films, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), who has been on the run. After the two discover her new hidden tattoos, Jane is forced to return to the FBI, where Weller, Jane and the rest of the team set out to solve these new puzzles and stop the dangerous conspiracies they reveal. The tattoos however, reveal the team’s darkest secrets.

Originally premiering on NBC in 2015, Blindspot tells the story of a mysterious woman (Alexander) who is found in Times Square with her body completely covered in intricate, coded tattoos. With no memories of her past, she is clueless about her own identity. Dubbed Jane Doe, she is investigated by the FBI when they learn one of her mysterious tattoos bears the name of agent Kurt Weller. As the FBI investigates the complex treasure map of her body, an ever-widening web of conspiracy and corruption is revealed.

Recently renewed for its fourth season on NBC, Blindspot is produced by Berlanti Productions and Quinn’s House in association with Warner Bros. Television. Blindspot was created by Martin Gero (Bored to Death, The L.A.

Disney’s live-action MULAN - Opens in Theatres Everywhere on March 27, 2020! #Mulan

PRODUCTION BEGINS ON DISNEY’S LIVE-ACTION “MULAN”

Epic Tale of Legendary Chinese Warrior Comes to Life with

Cast Including Liu Yifei, Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee with

Gong Li and Jet Li Directed by Niki Caro


Production on Disney’s “Mulan,” a live-action adaptation of the studio’s 1998 animated feature, has begun. The film will shoot on locations in New Zealand and China and will open in U.S. theaters on March 27, 2020.

Liu Yifei (“The Forbidden Kingdom,” “Once Upon a Time”) was cast as Hua Mulan following a year-long global casting search. Joining her in the film are: Donnie Yen (“Star Wars: Rogue One”); Jason Scott Lee (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny”); Yoson An (“The Meg”); Utkarsh Ambudkar (“Pitch Perfect”); Ron Yuan (“Marco Polo”); Tzi Ma (“Arrival”); Rosalind Chao (“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”); Cheng Pei-Pei (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”); Nelson Lee;  Chum Ehelepola; with Gong Li (“Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Raise the Red Lantern”) and Jet Li (“Shaolin Temple,” “Lethal Weapon 4”).

“Mulan” is the epic adventure of a fearless young woman who masquerades as a man in order to fight Northern Invaders attacking China. The eldest daughter of an honored warrior, Hua Mulan is spirited, determined and quick on her feet. When the Emperor issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army, she steps in to take the place of her ailing father as Hua Jun, becoming one of China’s greatest warriors ever.

“Mulan” is directed by Niki Caro (“Whale Rider,” “McFarland USA”) from a screenplay by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver (“Jurassic World,” “In the Heart of the Sea”) and Elizabeth Martin & Lauren Hynek based on the narrative poem “The Ballad of Mulan.” The producers are Jason T. Reed (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”), Chris Bender (“A History of Violence”) and Jake Weiner (“Criminal”) with Barrie M. Osborne (“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King“), Bill Kong (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” “Monster Hunt”) and Tim Coddington (“Crazy Rich Asians”) serving as executive producers.

Disney’s animated feature, which was released in 1998, starred Ming-Na Wen, Miguel Ferrer and Eddie Murphy and was nominated for an Oscar® and two Golden Globe® Awards.

The story of the legendary warrior is one of China’s most popular folktales, and is still a part of the curriculum in Chinese schools today.
