Our Brand Is Crisis Passes

1442356731

A Bolivian presidential candidate failing badly in the polls enlists the firepower of an elite American management team, led by the deeply damaged but still brilliant strategist “Calamity” Jane Bodine (Bullock). In self-imposed retirement following a scandal that earned her nickname and rocked her to her core, Jane is coaxed back into the game for the chance to beat her professional nemesis, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), now coaching the opposition.

Warner Brothers Pictures and Movie Scene Queen will host a special screening of Our Brand is Crisis beginning at 7:30 PM on Monday, Oct. 26 at AMC Waterfront.22.  Please comment below with your favorite Sandra Bullock moment.  Although I thoroughly enjoyed The Blind Side (2009), the funnier side of Sandra Bullock is always more enjoyable– Miss Congeniality (2000) and Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous (2005).

Much Love,

Evolving from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time, Minions live to serve, but find themselves working for a continual series of unsuccessful masters, from T. Rex to Napoleon. Without a master to grovel for, the Minions fall into a deep depression. But one minion, Kevin, has a plan; accompanied by his pals Stuart and Bob, Kevin sets forth to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. Their search leads them to Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first-ever super-villainess.

Gravity

Dr. Ryan Stone (Saundra Bullock) battles more than scientific elements when she is trapped in outer space in Warner Brothers Pictures’ “Gravity”. As if “Prisoners” hasn’t been killing in the recent box office, we now get the pleasure of another great movie. With only a 7-person cast, “Gravity” starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney will have any NASA nerd clinging to the end of their seat.

Biomedical engineer Dr. Stone commits to her inaugural space shuttle mission, while commanding astronaut Matt Kowalski (Clooney) is celebrating his final trip before retirement. Dr. Stone, still in a mourning state of her own, is staring death right in the face after fast moving debris ruins their space shuttle.

The movie travels a little deeper than the dimensions of outer space taking on a psychological connection to the idea of being reborn. Gravity, the physical force not the movie, metaphorically holds Dr. Stone captive to her current state of mind and it’s up to her to use her survival instincts to hopefully see another day. The graphics and special effects were awesome! The movie literally captured every snippet and glimpse of what it means to be floating aimlessly in space. Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, who has been nominated several times for his previous work, did a phenomenal job. Oscar buzz is never official, but he might just win for “Gravity.”

After “The Heat”, Sandra Bullock is shown in a different, more serious light. She truly embodies the fragile state of Dr. Stone and seems to be an actress of flexibility and variety. Bullock can be sensitive and compassionate (“A Time To Kill”), she can be cute (the “Miss Congeniality” series), she can be outrageously hilarious (“The Heat”), and now, she’s proven to be a vulnerable, persistent biomedical researcher.

4 STARS: May I suggest the 3D or IMAX experience for “Gravity.” The extra $5 effects are worth the simulated feeling of getting lost in outer space. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are a match made in “space.”
