Nocturnal Animals: Movie Man Jackson

Whenever you’ve got it, hold onto it. Art gallery owner Susan Morrow (Amy Adams) has made a new life with husband Hutton (Armie Hammer).

Everest: Movie Man Jackson

“Our bodies will be literally dying.” If Everest is now a “pushover” mountain to climb, I want absolutely nothing to do with the “super-difficult” ones. Back in the ’90’s, anyone who considered themselves an avid mountain climber made it an appointment to climb big bad Mount Everest. People from every point in the world converge in […]

End of Watch: Movie Man Jackson

“This is where the forces of good prepare to fight the forces of evil.” Every time a police officer puts on their uniform, they are taking a big, but accepted, risk that puts their livelihood in danger. Every time said officer makes it to their End of Watch, or shift, that is a thing to be thankful […]

Accidental Love: Movie Man Jackson

“Wait! She has no insurance.” It was Tupac who (posthumously) once said that unconditional love  is the type of stuff that doesn’t wear off or fade. I wonder what he would say about Accidental Love. Alice Eckle (Jessica Biel) is a small-town, somewhat dumb waitress dating an equally, if not more dense police officer boyfriend Scott (James […]

Nightcrawler: Movie Man Jackson

“If you want to win the lottery, you have to make the money to buy a ticket.” Freaks operate at night. In Nightcrawler. Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a middle aged individual living in the city of angels, Los Angeles, looking for a job. Lou is…a little odd to say the least, but the drive he possesses […]
