Hope Springs Movie

“Hope Springs” Has Some Nice Touches


“Nice Touches”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

Hope Springs is a comedy starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones as a couple who have been married 31 years and who spend a week taking intensive couples counseling.

You see, perhaps because they have been married 31 years, their marriage is in a deep rut. They sleep in separate bedrooms; every morning Kay cooks Arnold’s breakfast of one egg and one slice of bacon, which he eats while reading the newspaper and then leaves for work without saying anything; and every evening Arnold falls asleep in his easy chair while watching the golf channel on TV.

So, when Kay sees a book called You Can Have the Marriage You Want, by Dr. Bernard Feld, she signs up for Arnold and her to attend Dr. Feld’s Center for Intensive Couples Counseling, which is held in Great Hope Springs, Maine.

Kay says, “I want a real marriage again, Arnold.”

She tells him that she has already booked the flight, which leaves tomorrow, and when Arnold refuses to go, Kay calls a cab and leaves for the airport alone.

Well, of course, Arnold gives in, and when he shows up at the last minute and sits down next to her on the airplane, he says, “I hope you’re happy.”

Steve Carell plays Dr. Feld, but he is much more subdued than his usual comedic roles, and the laughs come from the situations that Kay and Arnold put themselves in and the things they say, as well as the things they don’t say.

In fact, Streep is a great actress without even saying anything, and Jones is no slouch, either. Carell must have picked up some acting tips from them, because even he holds his own in the Laughs Without Saying Anything category.

Kay tells Dr. Feld that Arnold doesn’t touch her anymore, when he used to touch her arm, her shoulder, just because he wanted to. And so Dr. Feld gives them an exercise for that evening back in their motel room to just put their arms around each other and hold each other.

Each session and each exercise gets more intense, and even though it might sound repetitious and boring, it isn’t.

Hope Springs has some nice touches in it–all puns intended–and this is one movie that is impossible to walk out during the closing credits.

North West Burglaries and Arson in St. Johns County


Detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office continue to investigate a series of crimes that occurred in the North West District of the county within the past several months. Detectives received tips from the community and were able to ascertain that three adults and two teens were involved in several burglaries and arson.

A witness learned of one of the incidents through Facebook and notified the Sheriff’s Office that she saw a vehicle traveling in Jacksonville with music equipment that matched items allegedly stolen from a St. Johns County School.

As detectives followed up on the tip, they began working with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office in an attempt to locate the vehicle and property. The suspect vehicle was located on Race Track Road, where deputies conducted a traffic stop. Upon stopping the vehicle, the driver told deputies he was on probation and he did not want to go to jail. As deputies spoke with the driver, they were able to see several items in plain view inside the vehicle, which they recognized as possible items stolen during the recent burglaries.

Detectives continued to identify and interview additional suspects in this case based on the roadside investigation. Today, three of the suspects were arrested on charges relating to a burglary at Cunningham Creek Elementary School on June 28, 2012. Additionally, information was obtained regarding two of the suspects’ involvement in the arson of two buses at local daycare on June 12, 2012, totaling in $74,000 worth of damage.

The suspects are identified as Shane Michael Havlik, 16, 860 Brookstone Court St. Johns, FL (arrested and charged with burglary theft, trespass, dealing in stolen property and criminal mischief); Montgomery Sinclair McCaffrey, 18, 104 Findhorn Court St. Johns, FL (arrested and charged with accessory after the fact and trespassing); Samuel Lee Maxey, 15, 200 Leese Drive St. Johns, FL (arrested and charged with accessory after the fact and trespassing). Charges have been filed against the two suspects identified in the arson.

The investigation continues into similar crimes in the area and additional charges are pending. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Mike Smith (904)-209-2142 or Crime Stoppers.

Horrible Bosses Movie

“Horrible Bosses” Great Fun


Official Website

“Great Fun”

“Hotshots” looks at a movie!

Horrible Bosses has built right into the title that the bosses in question are much worse than just “bad bosses,” doesn’t it, but the best thing about it is that the movie might just be better and much funnier than you expected it to be.

Horrible Bosses

So, if you have ever had a bad boss or, worse yet, a horrible boss, you owe it to yourself to see this movie and be prepared to laugh your head off.

On the other hand, if you have ever been accused of being a bad boss, or if you think you might have been a bad boss, then you owe it to your employees to see this movie and perhaps learn how to repair the error of your ways.

No, I’ll make it easier for you: Are you now or have you ever been a boss? Then see this movie, even if you have just known a boss, but don’t expect to get any tips from it, either on how to be a bad boss or how to handle a bad boss.

Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis star in the movie, but they are not the bosses of the title. They are the ones who have the bad bosses, who are played by Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Aniston, and Colin Farrell, respectively, although you might not recognize Colin Farrell at first.

Early in the movie, Spacey tells Bateman’s character, Nick, “If you want a promotion, you’ve got to earn it.”

And then Spacey does everything in his boss powers to prevent Nick from getting a promotion.

Well, Nick, Dale, and Kurt are friends going back to high school, and they meet regularly for drinks. One night while they are engaged in a mutual commiseration society, they come up with the idea to kill their bosses.

I didn’t say it was a good idea.

They know that they can’t do it themselves without getting caught, and after one hilarious attempt to hire a hit man on the Internet, they end up paying Jamie Foxx in a great performance as their “murder consultant.”

Now, because this is a comedy, you know that everything isn’t going to go as planned, even though the plan seems so simple and even draws from the great mystery writers and also Alfred Hitchcock.

Horrible Bosses is great fun.

The A-Team - Movie

The A-Team – Movie Trailer


Director Joe Carnahan resurrects the popular 1980s-era action series with this explosive reboot following the adventures of four Iraq War veterans who begin a second career as mercenaries for hire. Col. John “Hannibal” Smith (Liam Neeson), Templeton “Face” Peck (Bradley Cooper), B.A. Baracus (Quinton “Rampage” Jackson), and H.M. “Howlin’ Mad” Murdock (Sharlto Copley) are a group of former Special Forces operatives who have been fighting the good fight for eight years when they’re sentenced to military prison for a crime they didn’t commit. Breaking out with relative ease, they embark on a treacherous quest to clear their names while being hunted across the globe by Charissa Sosa (Jessica Biel), a high-ranking military officer and one of Face’s many former lovers. Meanwhile, mysterious CIA operative Lynch (Patrick Wilson) offers tips that help point the federal fugitives in the right direction, which seems to lead straight to former military contractor Pike (Brian Bloom), who may have been responsible for setting them up in the first place. Just when it seems that the A-Team has all the evidence needed to prove their innocence, however, they discover that their latest mission is just getting started.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno – Movie Trailer


Their debts mounting as their bank accounts dry up, longtime friends Zack (Seth Rogen) and Miri (Elizabeth Banks) plot to solve all their financial problems by making an adult film with movie geek appeal. Zack is a barista who doesn’t make big tips, and Miri isn’t exactly making top dollar either. Friends since grade school, they share a cramped apartment together, but the bills are piling up faster than their paychecks. Then, at their class reunion, the two friends meet up with a former classmate who’s shot to success in the adult film industry. Inspired after a YouTube video of Miri in her granny panties goes viral, Zack and his roommate round up a crew and begin production on their masterpiece. When the time comes for Zack and Miri to shoot their first scene together, however, unexpected emotions start to bubble to the surface, prompting them both to wonder if they’ve somehow mistaken true love for mere friendship all these years.
