Shutter Island (2010) -

It's not on my must see travel list - Shutter Island? Really? Do ya like your window protection over there...on that island...where...I'm guessing...it might be windy and or hurricane-ish and thus explaining shutter mania that resulted in the name of your little scary island.
"All I know is it's a mental hospital." Oh. Well, that explains a lot. Even I want some shutters if there's a go-go gadget get together "hospital." Especially if it's for the criminally insane, as opposed to the fashionably insane, which could be worse.
"We try to provide them with a measure of calm." So, let's send in a movie star to kick it up a notch! Go Leo! Find the missing insaner that seems to have "evaporated, straight through the walls." And do it, in the past! That's right, no cell phone, no Facebook or Google clues, and most of all, no CSI. You got You Eye and a gun. No wait, they took your gun. Oh well, you may lose that eye.

It does appear Michael converted to Islam in November of 2008. The singer, who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, converted to Islam in a ceremony at a friend's house in Los Angeles. He is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated.

All About Steve (Weekly Pick) (2009) -

FLiXER Review Poster Image (February 23, 2010 - 3:26pm)
Licensed To Wed writer Kim Barker gets another shot at comedy. A yarn about Sandra Bullock, a wacky 40s crossword puzzle constructor (aka the morning confounder) who falls in love with a news cameraman, Bradley Cooper. A fill in the squares type of movie. Black and white. Diagonal logic. You get the picture - 4 down. Cooper is hot off his debauched hit The Hangover, and Bullock is proving you can still be cute in your 40s even with too much make-up. Rocky Faulkner, I hope it was supposed to look that way, or since you've done a lot of special effects make-up, maybe it was all a thick...

Project by superman at FLiXER (February 27, 2011 - 8:10am)
Topher Grace and Teresa Palmer relive the last decade of decision in a surprisingly emotional "romp" that's homage to the 80s teen movie. Like SUPERBAD and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, both happening to have have starred Michael Cera, Kids In America's story arc will cover one life changing night, but a little less irreverent, a little more life. Also stars Michelle Tractenberg (goth it up baby!) and Anna Faris, Chris Pratt, Michael Ian Black and Michael Biehn. Synopsis: Topher Grace and Teresa Palmer star in It's All Gone Pete Tong screenwriter/director Michael Dowse's coming of age...

Being new at this

Makaila Evans Blog Image - FLiXER
So as you are guessing I am totally new at this. But I will learn. For all typos could know is I'm some girl who is sophisticated, but in reality I'm wild and shy. I have quite the character when it comes to drama. I am very artistic and love to draw. So enough about me this blog will have a lot about the different movies I watch and other stuff like that. I will be posting a weekly picture of something I like and I will do a description of a movie I watched. So this picture is from "Doctor Who". I had gotten addicted to this show. I watch all the modern seasons up until season 7 episode 6...

THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123 (2009) Weekly Pick + Review

The Taking of Pelham 123 (2009) Swordfish is back on the menu. Even in a fast-paced NY City, things can get faster if an actor takes a bunch of hostages to get his stalled career going...again. And Tony Scott is the Top Gun to handle this kind of movie. All grit and blur, unrealistic time-lines, governmental...er,  govern-mental "move fast and appear as if you're doing something" action-packed "hostage in peril" yarn. Go Tony. Go Tony. Go fix that third act just a bit.
