Prisoners Prepare for a Movie Battle

Last weekend, thrill-seeking moviegoers were on the edge of their seats, “reading” from the “Insidious Chapter 2” scary to view alone. “The Family” laying low in the Witness Protection Program may not have gotten much love from the critics, yet still received a cushy spot at the box office. “Riddick” was running amok, fighting crime in the Pitch Black while holding court within a darkened movie theater. “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” was fighting injustice of his own, both at the White House and his own house. “We’re the Millers” were busy becoming even bigger millionaires. But “Enough Said” about last week’s news, what wonders await us this weekend at the movies?
For those feeling a bit under the (cinematic) weather, a trip to “Parkland,” along with a voyage back in time, may be in order. This weekend also welcomes new friends while witnessing fond farewells (including a performance by the late, great James Gandolfini), kidnappings, 12-step programs and Hollywood hostages. Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal are looking for a captive audience to call their own, hoping to capture moving-loving “Prisoners” (at least for the length of their edge-of-your-seat story). Will they succeed?
As the scent of everything pumpkin (pie, pasta, purees, etc.) mixes with the aroma of buttered popcorn, “Thanks for Sharing” a little movie time with me. May whatever tale you choose hold you entertainingly spellbound …
