Again another lazy weekend spent at home
with lots of movies and food!What would you do if you got a second shot at life? Class of 1989, Mike O'Donnell is a star on his high school basketball court with a college scout in the stands and a bright future in his grasp. But instead, he decides to throw it all away to share his life with his girlfriend Scarlett and the baby he just learned they are expecting. Almost 20 years later, Mike's glory days are decidedly behind him. His marriage to Scarlett has fallen apart, he has been passed over for a promotion at work, his teenage kids think he is a loser, and he has been reduced to crashing with his high school nerd-turned-techno-billionaire best friend Ned. But Mike is given another chance when he is miraculously transformed back to the age of 17. Unfortunately, Mike may look 17 again, but his thirty something outlook is totally uncool in the class of 2009. And in trying to recapture his best years, Mike could lose the best things that ever happened to him. I really enjoyed the movie. It was very funny and made me feel I want another shot at life again... what would you do if you had a second chance? I think I'll pay more attention in school the next time *shuddering* never liked school or what followed after that ;p
Three years after the Crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth, rumors that he is a prophet who has risen from the dead are inciting the people to rebel against their Roman rulers. In an effort to control the unrest, the Roman Emperor Tiberius sends Taurus, a loyal Roman official, to Judea to find Jesus or his missing body and disprove the story. Taurus soon finds himself hampered in his investigation by governor Pontius Pilate (who is anxious to keep the details of Jesus' last moments on Calvary from becoming public knowledge) and drawn deeply into a maze of passion and faith.History and religion are two of my favorite subjects. And a movie about the two is a real treat for me. It is an Italian production staring Daniel Loitti who graced our House of Hunk post last week, Dolph Lindbergh who had a handful of repeated lines and Monica Cruz, Penny's little sister me thinks. The filming was bad, but the whole story very interesting.
When Catherine, a successful doctor, begins to question her husband David's fidelity, she sets out to resolve her suspicions with the help of an alluring young woman, Chloe. Soon caught in a web of sexual desire, Catherine finds herself on a journey that places her family in great danger.
In short...don't butt in your husband's secret affairs or this is what will happen to you! Yeah sure come tell me something else! It is scary and a little bit stupid and predictable. Amanda Syfried was creep in good way.
