42 The movie about Jackie Robinson
We saw 42 the movie about Jackie Robinson and really enjoyed it. It was a touching, funny and inspirational movie.
I would give it a five out of five.
Delivery Man Movie from Dreamworks
I enjoyed this film. There were many times during the movie that made me misty eyed. It was not slapstick, but serious adult issues, a middle aged man growing with changes and accepting responsiblities.
From DreamWorks Pictures comes “Delivery Man,”the story of affable underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn), whose mundane life gets twisted in a knot when he finds out that he fathered 533 children via sperm donations he made twenty years earlier.
I laughed, I cried, I cheered.
A feel good movie about how things can be.
Fire In The Blood, a much-needed critique of Big Pharma
IIn this much-needed critique of Big Pharma (narrated by William Hurt), activists and intellectuals expose how Western pharmaceutical companies, in pursuit of higher profits, systematically block access to life-saving AIDS drugs in the global south.
Since 1996, drug companies have abused patent laws to prohibit the sale of affordable generic drugs, leading to the unnecessary deaths of millions of people in developing countries. Fire in the Blood documents the inspiring work and impressive headway activist groups have made in the struggle against these corporate practices, and interviewees like Bill Clinton, Bishop Desmond Tutu and New York Times journalist Donald G. McNeil Jr. all share insights about the need to keep to fighting.
