Must See Movies
I received an email a while back about the movie The Covenant. I meant to mention something about it here but totally forgot about it until a few days ago. It stars Steven Strait , Sebastian Stan, and Toby Hemingway.
Synopsis - In 1692, in the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts, five families with untold power formed a covenant of silence. One family, lusting for more, was banished; their bloodline disappearing without a trace--until now. This thriller tells the story of the Sons of Ipswich, four young students at the elite Spencer Academy who are bound by their sacred ancestry. As descendants of the original families who settled in Ipswich Colony in the 1600's, the boys have all been born with special powers. When the body of a dead student is discovered after a party, secrets begin to unravel which threaten to break the covenant of silence that has protected their families for hundreds of years.
The Covenant is currently out on DVD. This one is on my "Must Own" list and it should be on yours.
A movie set to premiere today is Grindhouse. With writers/directors like Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino you know it's going to be good.
Synopsis - An homage to exploitation B-movie thrillers that combines two feature-length segments into one double-bill designed to replicate the grind house theater going experience of the 70s and 80s. In "Death Proof," a psycho named Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) stalks and kills beautiful women with his car. In "Planet Terror," a small-town sheriffs' department has to deal with an outbreak of murderous, infected people called "sickos." A gun-legged woman named Cherry (Rose McGowan) and her martial arts-wielding partner (Freddy Rodriguez) take on the zombie army. The two films will be fused together by fake movie trailers.
