I watched Lord of War yesterday. I taped it when it was on The Movie Channel. It has Nicolas Cage (love him), Bridget Moynahan, Jared Leto, Shake Tukhmanyan, Jean-Pierre Nshanian, and Ethan Hawke in it.
Big Warning: there is lots of violence and some very sad parts.
In this movie, a man named Yuri Orlov (not a real person, but inspired by five other men) decides to get into the arms business. Once he gets into the business, he discovers that he can make more money selling guns during war time. So he does and he marries the woman of his dreams. They have a son together. But his business comes with a price which he loses his wife and son. His parents disown him. His uncle is killed and his brother is also killed.
I can’t really like this movie. It is too sad and if Yuri was a real person, he had no heart. If I had been him, I would have stopped when the bomb killed the uncle. That bomb was actually meant for him. And when his brother tried to tell him what he was doing was wrong and then killed himself, he still didn’t stop. He says in the movie, it wasn’t the money, he just knows he is good at it.
Next week I’m watching The Weather Man.
I watched Killshot yesterday. I taped it when it was on Flix channel. It is based on a book by Elmore Leonard. (I haven’t read the book, but I might.) It has Mickey Rourke, Brandon McGibbon, Hal Holbrook, Diane Lane, Thomas Jane, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Don McManus in it.
Big Warning: there is some violence and a sad ending.
In this movie, an assassin goes to kill an old man. Meanwhile a young guy blackmails a real estate man. The young guy gets a chance encounter with the assassin who decides to help the young guy learn how to do things right. The problem is the young guy isn’t so easy to teach and he’s really rude. They go to the real estate office and a couple is there instead of the real estate guy. The couple sees them which means they have to die. In the end the good wins.
I did like this movie, but I would have written the ending differently. Next week I’m watching Lord of War.
I watched Pet yesterday. I had taped it when it was on The Movie Channel Extra. It has Dominic Monaghan, Ksenia Solo, Jennette McCurdy, and Da’Vone McDonald in it.
Big Warning: there is a little bit of violence.
Note: This movie is not what you think it is. There is a huge twist to it. This is an awesome movie.
Here is a semi summary. I can’t tell everything, but like I said above it is not what you think. A man named Seth works at an animal shelter. He sees an old crush on a bus. He gets obsessed with her so he kidnaps her and puts her in a cage underneath the animal shelter. (Yes I know that doesn’t sound good, but like I said it’s not what you think.)

Warning: there is some violence.
In this movie, Some bodies are discovered around the city. It seems like Jigsaw (John Kramer) is still alive even though he has been dead for 10 years. The first part of the movie you see five test subjects. There is one survivor which is revealed at the end of the movie. It is also revealed that the first five test subjects are from 10 years ago. Detective Halloran and Detective Hunt investigate the bodies. Not only the evidence points to Jigsaw, but it points to Detective Halloran too. But the real copycat is revealed at the end.
