If you’re like me and love a good movie where the female lead or leads find their inner strength and fight back against the “bad guys,” just as Jennifer Lopez does in Enough or Ashley Judd does in Double Jeopardy, then I think you might like this movie.
The first trailer for this new thriller titled The Black Rock has just been released, starring Katie Aselton, Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth. In the movie, the women play three childhood friends that embark on a weekend getaway to the isolated island of Black Rock, a remote island off the coast of Maine. Shortly after they arrive, the girls discover that they are not alone.
Expecting to be the only people on the island, the women are caught off guard when they come across three guys who are on the island to hunt. One of the women recognizes one of the guys as the brother of a guy she went to high school with. After a disturbing incident occurs later that night, what was supposed to be a relaxing and fun little getaway for three friends quickly turns into an absolute nightmare that will propel the women into survival mode and beyond. The film hits theaters on May 17, 2013. Check out the first trailer below!
On a recent recommendation kick (just click my name and you’ll see this theme makes up about 95% of my past month or so of articles), I’m shifting from music and movies for a second to return to my true love: television brilliance. Today’s lesson is brought to you by the letter “F” for football. WAIT! Before you click away, though being a pigskin tossin’ lover definitely adds a level to the enjoyment of this show, I am the opposite of a touchdown troubadour and still, this show brings me nothing but gut-bustin’ hilarity and utter enjoyment.
Here’s the premise: 5 best friends who are O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D with all things football, play on a fantasy football team together… which basically means that in every minute of their free time (hell, during business meetings), they are checking injuries, point spreads and scoring records to set their “teams” for the coming week’s games. Basic premise aside, this show is about a group of 30-something men who never grew up, never wanted to and definitely aren’t about to start now. The actors range from an assortment of B-List flicks that you’ll “vaguely recognize them” from, but in this show they absolutely make a name for themselves. The humour is non-stop, the boundaries of typical TV don’t even exist with this show… of COURSE it’s on FX.
