The Lincoln Lawyer

2011

Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Marisa Tomei, and Ryan Phillippe

Welcome to the show Mr. McConaughey! Excellent movie. One the best non-chick flicks I’ve seen him in to date. Matthew has stepped up, put away his pretty boy persona and let it be known that he can play with the big boys.

Matthew plays sleaze-bag defense lawyer Mick Haller who has now taken on a wealthy client, Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe), accused of rape.

As Mick gathers all the evidence he realizes that his case with Roulet may be connected to one of his old cases. All hell starts breaking loose from there.

This is where the movie really starts to rock. Definitely a must see.

McConaughey and William H Macy, who plays Frank Levin the PI, have got great chemistry. I really don’t have much of an opinion on Phillippe, but he and McConaughey were really workin’ it on screen. I’m hoping they’ll do another film together.

And how cool would it be to have your office in the back of a big ‘ol Lincoln?! Awesome!!

Absolutely giving this some thumbs up.

Paper Clips

2004

A  documentary about kids in Whitwell, TN Middle School studying about the Holocaust. They wanted to collect 6 million paper clips to represent the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust. This movie is their story.

This is a great movie. These kids started out knowing absolutely nothing about the Holocaust and they learned and achieved so much through the project. The whole town came together to help with the project.

Parts of this movie are heartbreaking to hear as they have survivors telling their stories of what they went through and what they lost.
