Reality? Nah.

 

I’m not sure that I bought into the idea behind Mad Money. Sure the movie is purely fictional and made for entertainment purposes only but this was a bit of a stretch. C’mon, even if this were possible, in this day and age, someone would have thought of this scheme by now. It’s too simple. Not to mention the heightened security measures taken by federal agencies. I just can’t get past the actual reality of how this would NEVER work. We’re talking about the National Treasury here – not your local bank. Don’t get me wrong. The movie has a great cast and some comedic highlights. If you’re looking for a comedy about three women who find a way to “beat the system”, albeit unrealistically, then you might enjoy this film. Check it out for yourself.

 

Legendary Story

 

I Am Legend is a remake from the book, of the same title, originally penned in 1954 by Richard Matheson. This version of the story occurs in modern times with a look into the future. The special effects are nothing short of spectacular; think “Day After Tomorrow” in terms of sweeping, vast, cavernous CGI shots of Manhattan following a catastrophic event. 

While the movie was impressive in terms of special effects, equally impressive was the “human” element. I couldn’t help but to observe the similarities between Will Smith’s character and Tom Hanks in Cast Away. Both men were forced to live a life of isolation and must learn to deal with all the emotions that “accompany” their loss. Initially there is only one main character and therefore there is not a lot of dialogue. Another character/sidekick does exist however neither has speaking roles but charismatic nonetheless.

Consider yourself warned, this movie is not about surviving a natural disaster, as in the previously mentioned movies, rather it is something more sinister.
