A GOOD STORY IS A GOOD STORY

MOVIES TO GO TO - UNSTOPPABLE / LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS

It's holiday time but don't forget to make time to see a few good movies. There is nothing better than sitting back and enjoying a movie at your local theatre. I know that it's expensive to go to the movies but when you actually get to the theatre, buy your popcorn and find a good seat you forget your troubles and relax... and that is good!

I try to see as many new movies as possible. I am a screenwriter and think all screenwriters should see movies. I am always surprised when a screenwriter tells me they haven't see a movie in a long time. I think every good screenwriter should see movies, especially new movies. This weekend was a busy one but I saw two very different movies - UNSTOPPABLE & LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS.

Unstoppable is a very entertaining and energetic movie. The actors are all professional and the story is very exciting. This movie is suspenseful immediately after the story set –up and from that very moment you will feel as if you are on the train with Denzel and Chris. The film director is Tony Scott and the screenwriter is Mark Bomback. The producers Julie Yorn, Tony Scott and Chris Ciaffa made a good decision when they said yes to this screenplay.


LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS is really a wonderful movie with subtle messages that you won't soon forget. It's a beautiful love story and this movie has heart. Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway, Josh Gad, Hank Azaria and Oliver Platt all gave superb performances. Jake and Anne have a wonderful chemistry and hopefully they will do another movie together. The movie had very intimate beautiful moments and this is a must see.Thank you Charles Randolph for writing such an engaging script. I hope there will be Oscar nominations coming forward. Ed Zwick was the director and he also was a producer along with Marshall Herskovitz, Scott Stuber and Mary Parent.

Hollywood is moving forward with some very good films.
