Hands of Stone is a little known movie about famous boxer named Roberto Duran. Roberto Duran is already a famous boxer that I'm sure much of the world has heard of, but he's a treasure in his homeland of Panama. This film tackles a lot of issues and pushes a ton of content into the 111 minute run time. It's very ambitious and I commend them for trying to do so much.
I didn't expect Netflix to have a TV series based on mafia gangsters in Canada. Let's face it, no one really expected it. Usually when we think of mafia crimes, we think of New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas. The big profile stories are always based in the United States, especially the true story ones. Although the stories have been made over and over again. I guess they needed new material. It so happens that Canada had a large mafia problem of their own. I'm sure not a lot of people know about the story of Vito Rizzuto. Sometimes they say the biggest gangsters are the ones that no one knows about. That ended soon now that this series has been made. Who knows... Canadian shows aren't ever that popular.
Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (1997) was Disney's first live action take on Cinderella with a plethora of starts to help them out. We all know the story of Cinderella, so I don't really have to describe the plot points for this one.
Bridge to Terabithia is a family movie geared towards kids that came out back in 2007. I would never have heard of this movie if it wasn't for my girlfriend. She told me that she loved it when she watched it years back. I didn't see a reason why I shouldn't have watched it. So I chose to broaden my horizons and see something different for a change.
A car accident can be a traumatic thing. I've experienced a number of vehicle accidents in my life. I have to say, as the years go by, the safety of the vehicles have gotten better. My reactions have changed not only because I've been in these accidents before but because of my confidence in the vehicles themselves.
