Movie Review: Lee Daniels' The Butler










His son, Louis, is working from outside the system, becoming a Freedom Rider, sitting inat Woolworth's, involving himself with Martin Luther King, Jr.,and briefly the Black Panthers. In the course of the movie, this causes much friction between the two, but it also asks of the audience to consider which side they would be on, and what they would choose were they in the same situation. It helps that both roles are played so well. While a story of the civil rights movement is always a worthy topic, it is the acting inLee Daniels' The Butler, first and foremost, that makes it worth seeing and supporting. Forest Whitaker is so good Kim Kardashian Jam he could have played this role in his sleep. He turns on every trick of subtlety and nuance to carve a real, evolving man, what most of the audience ultimately is meant to see as a silent hero of civil rights, to play the lead Cecil Gaines. <br>Source: http://greateralexandria.patch.com/groups/arts-and-entertainment/p/movie-review-lee-daniels-the-butler_6496fba4





Movie review: 'Paranoia' has bells and whistles but glitches too



Actually, he avoided them like the plague. Jobs believed in building great products that he would want to use himself. To a large extent he had a point. For example, in 2010 how many of us would have asked for a third device in between a laptop and a smartphone? Most people would never have asked for an iPad, but once millions of consumers saw it, they couldnt live without it, and it opened up entirely new categories of business applications. When I spent one year researching a book on the Apple Store, I learned that Jobs revolutionized the retail business because he asked better questions. For example, Jobs did not ask, How do we build a better store than our competitors? Instead he asked, How do we reinvent the store? Dont do things better; do things differently. <br>Source: http://www.forbes.com/sites/carminegallo/2013/08/16/10-powerful-quotes-from-the-steve-jobs-movie-and-what-they-teach-us-about-leadership/







Daniels is the director but, truth be told, it's "Forest Whitaker's The Butler" as he eloquently embodies the story of one man, eight Kim Kardashian hair extensions U.S. presidents and a journey from picking cotton to picking an African-American as leader of the free world. Mr. Whitaker appears to age before our eyes, from a butler quietly quaking at serving coffee to Ike to one invited to a state dinner by President and Mrs. Reagan. The movie, inspired by a true story (rather than based on, which would hew more closely to actual events), opens with a scorching snapshot of life in 1926 Georgia. <br>Source: http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/ae/movie-reviews/movie-review-the-butler-gives-a-white-house-servants-view-of-the-times-from-eisenhower-to-obama-699535/

While carrying that pain, we witness Cecil navigate life by keeping his head down, working hard and speaking when spoken to while trying to do http://wallinside.com/post-4889844-imagine-a-combination-of-the-two-kim-kardashian-reveals-kanye-wests-love-for-daughter-north.html right by his family. As Cecil, Whitakers eyes and face sites embody all of these truths standing in the Oval Office as presidents from Eisenhower to Reagan struggle with race-related issues, from the U.S. civil rights movement to apartheid in South Africa. Daniels lines up some heavy hitters to play the presidents. We get Robin Williams as Dwight Eisenhower, Liev Schreiber as Lyndon Johnson, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan and, perhaps the most impressive performance, James Marsden as John F. Kennedy. Oprah Winfrey plays Gloria, Cecils attention-starved wife. <br>Source: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2013/08/movie-review-forest-whitaker-a-witness-to-history-in-the-butler/





Movie review: 'The Butler' gives White House servant's view of times from Eisenhower to Obama



Both men suffered painful losses Goddard lost a son and Adam lost his mother. Much of the male bonding occurs in Goddard's richly appointed library, all dark woods and weathered leather. PHOTOS: Summer Sneaks 2013 I'm not going to get into the acting, because there's not much of it, frankly. No one is embarrassingly bad; no one is exceptionally good. Better to remember the actors for better thrillers, Ford in "Witness," Oldham in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," Hemsworth in "The Hunger Games." There are few surprises despite lots of twists and turns as Adam tries to figure a way to escape with his life. If you were hoping for interesting insight into all the ways technology is redefining our world, again I'd point to you other, better stuff, like "The Social Network." Instead the director gives us more beauty shots. The super-secret projects Goddard is working on, including that gizmo Adam is supposed to steal, are kept behind a steel gate that is another designer's dream in brushed-steel boxes on what looks to be velvet-covered podiums with their very own spotlights. Oh, I almost forgot it's easy to get distracted by all the pretty there is one role worth remembering. <br>Source: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/moviesnow/la-et-mn-paranoia-review,0,2168914.story
