Win Win

Paul Giamatti headlines writer/director Tom McCarthy’s comedy drama centering on a beleaguered attorney and part-time wrestling coach who schemes to keep his practice from going under by acting as the legal caretaker of an elderly client. Mike Flaherty (Giamatti) thinks he has discovered the perfect loophole to keep his practice in business. But his brilliant plan hits an unexpected hitch when his client’s troubled grandson shows up looking for a place to stay. With his home life in turmoil and both of his careers in jeopardy, Mike quickly realizes that he’ll have to get creative in order to find a way out of his current predicament. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Scott’s Take- What a GREAT movie.  Paul Gimatti is always worth the price of admission.  Simply put, he doesn’t make bad movies.  Win Win is one of the years best movies and definitely worth the Blu-Ray purchase.  ( 4 stars)

The Beaver

Jodie Foster directs and co-stars with Mel Gibson in The Beaver – an emotional story about a man on a journey to re-discover his family and re-start his life. Plagued by his own demons, Walter Black was once a successful toy executive and family man who now suffers from depression. No matter what he tries, Walter can’t seem to get himself back on track…until a beaver hand puppet enters his life. — (C) Summit

Scott’s Take- Any movie that can make my wife cry has earned it’s stripes.  Mel Gibson is fantastic as a father going through depression.  One day he stumbles upon a beaver hand puppet and transforms his whole life.  The Beaver will tug at your heart and give you a few smiles along the way. (3 1/2 stars)
