June 9th :  JOE

FromRotten Tomatoes movie review site: A gripping mix of friendship, violence and redemption erupts in the contemporary South in this adaptation of Larry Brown's novel, celebrated at once for its grit and its deeply moving core. Directed by David Gordon Green, JOE film brings Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage back to his indie roots in the title role as the hard-living, hot-tempered, ex-con Joe Ransom, who is just trying to dodge his instincts for trouble - until he meets a hard-luck kid, (MUD's Tye Sheridan) who awakens in him a fierce and tender-hearted protector.

    The discussion was great. A lot of people had interesting comments to make. The speaker, however, was very difficult to hear and understand. Many of the people made comments without waiting for the microphone, which made them impossible to hear. Verbal instructions should be given about using the microphone. Nicholas Cage was ok, but he will never be great.

    AHFS - Always a movie you won't be seeing at the local multiplex. Often, shall we say, challenging. Fans of Nic Cage might be interested in a humorous site dedicated to the decades of his career when he took almost any script:
