Lucy Action Thriller121436_gal  

  • My Score 9 out of 10   Yes See it.

Lucy – An Action packed film starring the wonderful Scarlett Johansson and directed by Luc Besson. The Film is short for a Hollywood action film at only 90 minutes but the film delivers an exceptional entertainment. I very much enjoyed this film.

Here is the official Synopsis

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

 

The One Hundred Foot Journey    118213_gal

  • My Score 9 out of 10
  • Critics 7 out of 10  
  • Audience Score 9 out of 10 

This is a feel good film that is a highly enjoyable film that delivers on emotion and story. You may think that this could be boring but the film is definitely the opposite. I highly recommend this film

Here is the official Synopsis

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award (R)-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing. (c) Disney
