SALT - Purple Reels Review

Directed by: Phillip Noyce 
Written by: Kurt Wimmer 

This has to be by far Angelina Jolie's best role yet. She was lethal in this movie, an absolute powerhouse, a raging bull. She went through so many disguises and in each her character was flawless. Salt (Angelina Jolie) plays a Russian spy who was trained from birth to perform missions for the Russian government. Salt disguises herself as an FBI agent and the rest is up to you to find out when you go see the movie! 

There are many twists and turns throughout the movie but the jolt that you will feel, the adrenalin rush can be attributed to the excellent camera work/movement throughout the action scenes. The best action scene by far would have to be when she was jumping from moving truck top to moving truck top on the freeway in Washington, DC. What was superb about the writing was that nothing was revealed too quickly... the audience was always left in suspense even until the end!

The Director Phillip Noyce  did an excellent job on projection in reference to taking each scene to the next level! BRAVO! Purple Reels gives "Salt" Five stars *****

Purple Reels Fun Fact !!!
"While attending Howard University in Washington, DC Purple Tramble witnessed Angelina Jolie's action scene being filmed not too far from her part time job in the downtown DC area."

Raising Hope: The Equal Voice Story "SPECIAL SCREENING"

 July 22, 2010

It is very necessary to spotlight the positive things going on in our communities. One of the best ways to relay to the world what is going on in our communities is through the art form known as "film." We have been going through a tough time as a nation but we have always managed to hold on somehow. Although some of us still feel like things are not coming together the way that we would like some way, somehow we always seem to recognize that American spirit deep within that allows us to succeed no matter what. It is that American dream that we strive for everyday. Yet how often do we stop to think about those who are not as blessed as we are to have the simple things in life? How often do we really stop and be thankful? Well I would like to offer you a chance to come and witness a great expression of just that... 
 "RAISING HOPE: THE EQUAL VOICE STORY"is a Documentary that tells the stories of 30,000 low-income people to create a national platform for lifting families out of poverty. If you have the time and are in the Seattle area join regional participants of the national Equal Voice campaign for a special advance screening and refreshments, and learn more about the broad-based effort to advocate for working families.

Sofia Carmina Coppola - More than just a pretty face!

"More than Just a Pretty Face"

#Filmfacts So it turns out the movie I just watched "Marie Antoinette" was Directed and Written by Sofia Carmina Coppola daughter of Director Francis Ford Coppola and Eleanor Coppola... Cousin of Nicolas Cage, Marc Coppola, and Christopher Coppola. At age 32, she became the youngest woman ever to be Oscar-nominated as Best Director for "Lost in Translation"(2003). Her first appearance on film was as the baby (boy) in the Baptism sequence in The Godfather (1972). The Coppolas, are the second family to have Oscar winners in three generations with her father, Francis Ford Coppola, grandfather, Carmine Coppola, and cousin, Nicolas Cage, all winners. The Coppola family has definitely made a name for themselves. RIGHT ON! 

Check out the trailer for "Marie Antoinette" below...

Purple Reels gives Karate Kid [5] ***** Stars!

The old karate kid was directed by John G. Avildsen and written by Robert Mark Kamen. Starring Ralph Macchio who is looking quite handsome these days and Pat Morita. The Karate Kid was a definite classic in my family and definitely reigns among the top ten greatest movies of all time. Pat Morita was nominated in 1985 for an Oscar and Golden Globe for best supporting actor. The movie won "The Young Artist Award" for "Best Family Motion Picture - Drama." Elisabeth Shue won "Best Young Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture Musical, Comedy, Adventure, or Drama." William Zabka was nominated for "Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture Musical, Comedy, Adventure or Drama." So to top a movie that was so successful already was somewhat of a challenge. However even after changing some aspects of the movie, the modern version seems to appeal to a wide range of audiences. The kids are not necessarily the ones to please. There are some big kids out there who are very familiar with the 1984 classic. So those are the people who would undoubtedly be most critical about the remake.


Jaden Smith has grown a lot as an actor and is fortunate to be in a family of creative people who are able to guide and protect his best interest. Taraji P. Henson was a great pick right now as well. She is at the peak of her career and this was a major role for her. It was nice to see them working together. I also think Jackie Chan was a good casting choice.

The Karate Kid is about strength and courage that was able to bridge the gap between generations. It also transcended ethnic cultures which was a great treat. In a modern world such as ours that was something to be proud of. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith were among the main producers of the movie. It is such a great thing to see a family like theirs pushing eachother to become greater. Their family is truly gifted and I'm glad they're giving their children the chance to shine...! We need more families like that in this world. Purple Reels gives The Karate Kid 5 ***** STARS!

The Lena Baker Story - Starring Tichina Arnold [Based on a true story]

 The Lena Baker Story was written, directed, and produced by Ralph Wilcox. It is based on a true story and was inspired by Dr. Lela Bond Phillips' book Lena Baker Story.

The Lena Baker Story takes place in the early 1900's through 1945 in Cuthbert, Georgia. It's the story of one woman's attempt to rise above the challenges of life, the choices she makes, and the consequences of those choices. The moment she thinks she has overcome her inner demons, she is called to work for Elliot Arthur, a father, a millworker and a drunk. As their relationship unfolds, it becomes strange, strained, and highly unacceptable for the time. Elliot Arthur needs Lena and in return Lena seems to need him. He abuses her and keeps her from her children by imprisoning her in his home. When she has finally had enough, Lena stands up and attempts to break free from the bondage of Elliot Arthur. A struggle ensues, and Elliot Arthur, a white man, is shot by Lena Baker, an African-American woman, on a hot, humid night in Southwest Georgia in 1945.

A jury of 12 white men, her subpoenaed peers, found Lena guilty of murder in less than 6 hours. She received the death penalty as her sentence, earning Lena Baker a place in history as the first and only woman to be sentenced to death by electric chair in the state Georgia. She was pardoned posthumously in 2005.

All names have been changed in the screenplay with the exception of Lena Baker.

Village Roadshow: A Deeper History
by Purple Reels
When one thinks of film they often think of France because of the Luminere Brothers but what a wealth of knowledge that was gained once I stepped foot into the world of Village Roadshow. They have truly made a name for themselves and everything they do is nothing short of excellent! What is interesting is that the company's history is deeply rooted in Australia. The company thrives in Cinema Exhibition dating back to 1954 with the creation of Australia's first drive-in cinemas. 

Currently Village Roadshow owns and operates 533 screens across 53 sites in Australia and 167 screens at 18 sites in Singapore, Greece and the Czech Republic. What is even more interesting is that now they are expanding their Gold Class Cinema concept to the US Market. So now we can benefit from their World Class service which is definitely like none other you will ever experience in your lifetime!

Even more so interesting than this is the company extends itself into theme parks and now is known as being the largest theme park owner and operator in Australia. Have you heard of Warner Bros Movie World, Sea World, or Wet 'n' Wild? They are all 100% owned by Village Road Show. Now I know what you're thinking... this is way too much! How can one company be so successful in so many different areas of interest. Well let me be the first to tell you that this is just the beginning. 

Village Roadshow also has a major hand in Film Distribution, having long standing distribution agreements and relationships with film suppliers like Warner Bros, The Weinstein Company, and their own Village Roadshow Pictures. This is truly an amazing company with a worthy story to tell... a story of success and triumph through the years... they have truly made a name for themselves in the business and should be recognized for their efforts. So the next time you watch a movie, go to a theme park or decide to treat your family to "World Class" service make sure you think of Gold Class Cinemas.

The experience at Gold Class Cinemas is like none other you will ever experience in your lifetime. After seeing a movie in this atmosphere your movie going experience will never be the same. It is evident in every aspect of life that when you begin to treat yourself to the finer things, you will more than likely never go back to the ordinary. You do not need to make reservations but it is encouraged that you do so. The inside reminded me of a lounge type of atmosphere as I was very taken by the interior design.

A live band or even a piano man is what I envisioned to enhance the place. The service was excellent! Everyone was very excited about the fact that the company was going to be featured on the "Purple Reels Blog." They even sent out one of the managers who gave me some more background on the company even after they gave a wonderful tour. I insisted that it is a great honor for myself and the company as well. The service at the front desk is reminiscent of a luxurious hotel or checking into a resort. You will truly feel like royalty!

Then you choose your movie if you haven't already made reservations. The movie of choice was Tom Cruise as (Roy Miller) and Cameron Diaz as (June Havens)in "Knight and Day!" Then the wonderful hostess' escort you over to the lounge area and bring you a cute little customized ticket holder. The lounge area was incredible with a fire place, full bar and full service. Even the (GOLD) menus were very original. After taking your order they bring you delicious appetizers while you wait for your movie to start.

They noticed how fascinated I was by their wall of fame. Along the wall there were pictures of famous actors and directors like Alfred Hitchcock and even Audrey Hepburn! Then came the tour.... the lounge chairs were a beautiful fashion orange. The fabric felt like cashmere. One might even compare it to flying first class. On your table in between you and your party next to you there is a button you can press while watching the movie to order whatever you would like! I quickly began using the service button. I thought it was a great touch. How many times have you went to the movies and got comfortable only to realize that you forgot to get some of your favorite candy? The service button takes care of all of that. They are very discrete as to not disturb other movie attendees. IT was SUPERB SERVICE!

They even provide pillows and covers for your convenience. This is the perfect anniversary, birthday, graduation etc. present. Hey it is even a great first date (smile)! If you are looking for great service, a movie experience like none other, or just a new and exciting way to celebrate all together then you need to experience Gold Class Cinemas! Bravo, Bravo, Purple Reels gives it 5 stars for WORLD CLASS SERVICE!
