A group of teens discover secret plans of a time machine, and construct one. However, things start to get out of control.” [IMDB.com]

Release Date: February 28, 2014

Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions.  His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.

However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence.  For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should.

Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown.  The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him. [Source]

What happens when you merge the characters of X-Men: First Class (prequel) with the characters of the X-Men trilogy? You have one incredible thrill ride from the future to the past to reshape mutant history. As a fan of the X-Men animated series and the comic book mythology as a whole, I have long enjoyed the film series for taking what was once but an animated fantasy to an amazing live-action reality. Needless to say, I am excited about this installment in the X-Men film series and will be in he theater to see this.

That’s right folks, the tale of Detroit’s half man, half machine law enforcer has been revamped for a 2014 audience. This time around he’s been given a new, upgraded exterior and is equipped to put baddies in their place in the year 2028. Robocop jumps back onto the big screen on February 7th of next year boasting a full roster of talented actors. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be taking your Valentine out to see this one.

Who would’ve known that a film called TRANCE could change my life? TRANCE is a psychological thriller that stars James Mcavoy (Wanted, X-Men First Class) , Vincent Cassel (Ocean’s Thirteen, Black Swan) and Rosario Dawson (Death Proof, Sin City). In the film, Rosario Dawson plays a hypnotherapist and let me be the first to say, she can hypnotize me any day…or night of the week. lol Anyway, in the film she is kind of this strategic and powerful woman. Attribute the power to her beauty and her brains in the film. Now, the reason why this film changed my life is mostly due to her performance…clothed and unclothed. But, we’ll get to the unclothed part later. For those who don’t know, I have practically followed Rosario Dawson’s career since He Got Game. The first time I watched it I remember thinking, “WoW! She is gorgeous!”

 Regarding her role in Alexander, I was like, “Whoa! She took it there. Okay, she’s got gusto AND a beautiful body.” Seven Pounds made me wish I could trade places with Will Smith and give her MY heart. She’s just that talented of an actress. So when I saw that this film TRANCE starred Rosario Dawson, I had to get it from the Redbox yesterday. That was a huge mistake on my part! Rosario Dawson’s character in this film is so dynamic that one word can’t really describe her. She’s mysterious, intelligent, secretive, and sexy, but not in an over-the-top kind of way. Although she does sleep with two men in the film. But, there’s sensible reasoning behind it, which you discover by the end of the film. Anyway, the name of the film is truly fitting because Rosario Dawson’s character and performance definitely put me in a trance for the two hours it took to watch it in its entirety.

But, it wasn’t solely her acting that resounds in my memory. It was the sexuality of her character and the makeup of her being. Simply put, Rosario Dawson got naked numerous times and that body is utterly hypnotizing. But, on and off-screen she has Brains, Beauty and Body. Talk about a trifecta of femininity. With that said, my big mistake doesn’t come from merely watching the film. But, from seeing something in her I am yet to see in ninety-nine percent of the women I interact with. Now, don’t be too hasty in your judgment of my last statement by thinking that what I see in her performance and physique is perfection. Contrarily, I see the errors, the vulnerability, the miscalculations, and the strategically uncoordinated pieces of art that she layers on and off the screen. And it is within those nuances that I see this perfect imperfection of an actress and most importantly, a woman. So, I can clearly see why she was made to be the main character’s muse in this film and so many previous films.

This multifaceted goddess who can be whomever you want her to be, plus more. This polished thespian who can outshine even the brightest of cohorts. So, standing in the mirror on a late Wednesday night, hours after watching the film, I quietly think to myself, “I’m In Love With Rosario Dawson.” I then pause for a brief moment, retract my previous statement and realize what it truly is that has me sleepless and baffled at the notion I have just contrived. I am not in love with Rosario Dawson. I am in love with the IDEA of a Rosario Dawson. (A stunning woman who portrays the many qualities I seek in a mate.) My mind then replays that sex scene – her unclothed performance – in the film where Mcavoy’s character tells her to pause for a second as he takes in all that she has to offer. Thinking to myself, the woman who makes me want to freeze frame our greatest moments and revel in those intricate seconds of pleasure is the woman I’d like to wed someday. Betwixt all the initial confusion from the seemingly jarring flow of events and the intricate characters in the film, I found my subtle sense of clarity. The woman who can completely entrance me with her Brains, Beauty and Body is the Rosario Dawson of my life.

Just when we thought Sylvester Stallone had officially retired to The Expendables island, a trailer for the new film Escape Plan emerges from the webiverse. Starring in this futuristic prison break film is his Expendables buddy Arnold Schwarzenegger. This leads me to ask the question, “Will these old guys ever slow down?” Based on the rumor of Arnold’s appearance in the next Terminator film, I think not. But, with that said, their old age doesn’t seem to be showing as they are kicking ass through a series of challenging events and people in this bromantic beefed up version of Lockout. One must also note the silver screen appearance of rapper turned mogul Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (The last and to my recollection only silver screen film he has been in was his loosely fact-based biopic Get Rich or Die Trying). I wonder how large a role he’ll have in this film. My guess is very small and for good reason. Every film he’s been in since GRODT has gone straight to DVD. I call this the 50 Cent curse. So, will the curse effect Escape Plan? I guess we’ll have to wait until October 18th to find out.

So it seems Europa Report won’t be the only space film on the silver screen this year. But, while Europa Report will take us on a thrill ride to another moon, Gravity seems like it will keep us trapped in space…literally. While I am interested in finding out how this story will end, I am uncertain if Gravity will be like the 2010 Ryan Reynold’s film Buried and keep us tethered to a single setting for the majority of the movie. Should this happen and the main characters end up dying in the end anyway I would be very disappointed. My guess is, the studio spent a great portion of their budget on pulling Sandra Bullock and George Clooney for the film to attract an audience. I think if this film were shot with lesser known actors the storyline would not hold strong enough to fill seats at the theaters. Let’s just hope the on-screen chemistry and dialogue between the two does well enough to keep this film entertaining or audiences might just drift away from the film faster than Sandra drifted from that space shuttle. Watch the trailer below to see what I mean and be sure to post a comment below to share your opinion. Do you think this will be a box office hit or does it have the makings of a blockbuster dud?
