Looking forward to “Out of the Furnace”

As a western Pennsylvanian, I have to admit this trailer strikes a chord with me.  No, I was never a boxer nor did I even rescue a kidnapped sibling. But hey, I am more than happy to be engrossed in the scenery of this story about someone who did. Looks like it was beautifully shot. Also, the cast promises to bring an all star, A Game performance.

Christian Bale is carving out a niche for himself as a hardscrabble, dark, gritty kind of character (I’m thinking The Fighter, 3:10 To Yuma, The Machinist, etc.). We will see how he handles it!

Movies in the Afternoon

When the weatherman predicts 6″ of snow for a Monday morning and instead you get a day-long, cold, persistent rain, should you count your blessings?  I don’t know which is better – the buckets of rain or buckets of late-April snow?  Pick your poison.  I do know that a great way to deal with the pain of either is by watching an awesome martial arts action film.  Hello Raid: Redemption!
