How Far Would YOU Go To Save A Life

Hey! Its been a while! I have been meaning to write but I have been busy with lots of projects.  Sorry about that.

I think maybe in the future I will write once a week like a digest of whats been going on… I dunno…maybe.

I guess to catch you up real fast starting with the latest while its fresh on my mind, I will start with a movie that I saw last night.

I went to the local theater here to see To Save A Life. I gotta say I was BLOWN away by this movie. It was simple film making at its best with several very powerful messages in for all ages.

I am gonna take a moment to rip off  IMDB.com and show you the full synopsis of the movie and possibly spoiling some of it for you but trust me you need to see this movie.

The film tells the story of Jake Taylor, a young man who has it all: a basketball scholarship, the ideal girlfriend, and the right friends. But faced with the demands of the in-crowd, Jake has written off his childhood best-friend, Roger. Isolated and mistreated, Roger finally takes his anger to the extreme when he shows up one day on campus with a gun.

Jake’s last-ditch effort cant stop Roger, and the events which follow rock Jake’s world. He begins to question everything, but most of all, he cant stop asking: Could I have saved Roger?

In his search for answers, Jake finds himself looking for the next Roger. He reaches out to geeks, losers, and loners. But crossing the strict high school caste lines threatens everything Jake values. And pushes him to answer the most important question of all: What do I want my life to be about?

This film doesn’t shy away from the real struggles facing our teens.. It is rated PG-13 because it portrays some of these issues accurately: from teen sexuality, to abortion, to cutting, to drug and alcohol abuse, to suicide.

But because it does so, teens are praising this film for its realistic and relevant portrayal of their world and responding enthusiastically to its message. As teen author and speaker Zach Hunter comments: It conveys the raw emotions of life and the ups and downs of high school My friends who have seen the film are already talking about it and encouraging others to go see it.

A must see for all teenagers and parents.

Ok…moving on. I have been BAD sick last week with the flu or a severe chest cold. I manage to pull through it and just have a  minor weezing cough right now that fading day by day.

While I was sick I managed to start a few new top secret web projects, so you will to stay tuned for those.

I also managed to watch several good movies at home.

THE ROAD

FLASH OF GENIUS

PERFECT GETAWAY

The Road, I got to see an advanced copy of this. It was well…bleak. Very sad. Its about a boy and his father and their struggle to survive in a post apocalyptic world.

Flash of Genius was a very good movie based on the true story of Robert Kearns, the inventor of the intermittent windshield wiper and how FORD Motor Company stole his idea.  He later battles FMC in court and wins, but don’t let these simple sentences stop you from checking this movie out, as you will never look at your wipers the same again. Good flick!

The Perfect Getaway was a movie that I expected to be very scary or suspenseful but it wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong it was a GREAT movie. This is one of those who dun it movies and you will never guess, not in a miiiillliiiooonnnn years. Watch it!

That’s all for now, I’m tired of writing and I am sure you are tired of reading.

I will try to post more soon.

Thanks My Dad and I worked on Flash of Genius for many years doing what we could to get the story told.

I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was toned down from reality, too difficult to believe?
