We continue our trek upward in our month of ScarJo and reach the Luc Besson oddity Lucy, which we didn’t mind as much this time around. Sure, there are a lot of flaws in this film and as soon as we start tugging at those loose threads the whole thing falls apart, but ScarJo is good in this, Morgan Freeman is entertaining, and the car chase sequence is rather exciting (even if she could have just flown over all the cars).
We also discuss The Avengers briefly, and ScarJo’s run as Black Widow. She has fun in the role, but there’s a particular scene that’s a bit of a sticking point for our hosts. Anyway, there’s a lot here so come join us, won’t you?
A LOOK AT A BOX OFFICE BOMB THAT WOULD BECOME A MODERN CLASSIC.
Stephen King is mostly known as a horror writer; however, he has ventured into other genres on numerous occasions, although mostly with shorter stories. He wrote an anthology of short stories that made up the collection Different Seasons. One of the stories in this collection was called “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption”, which writer and director Frank Darabont would option for $5,000 and turn into one of the most celebrated motion pictures of all time.
