FRONTERA: A Story of Perseverance, Love and Hope.

Magnolia Pictures brings us “FRONTERA” the story of Miguel (Michael Peña) a man wrongfully accused of murdering the wife of a former sheriff (Ed Harris).  Miguel is instantly branded a murderer after illegally crossing the border from Mexico to Arizona in search of an opportunity to provide a better life for his family.  If being in jail for murder isn’t enough?  Miguel’s pregnant wife Paulina (Eva Longoria)  is now being held for ransom by the same “Coyotes” who illegally smuggled her into the United States.   Ex Lawman Roy (Ed Harris) is not quite convinced of Miguel’s guilt and decides to investigate his wife’s murder.  Given that Roy is suppose to be retired its only natural that he will upset a few folks along the way.

“FRONTERA” which is the Spanish word for BORDER could not come at a better time.  It’s like every time you turn on the News no matter what Network or Show, whether the broadcast is in English or Spanish there is always News from the US/Mexico border.  News reports  about the large number of unsupervised children crossing the border illegally.  Then we have President Barack Obama addressing the nation over the concerns of the Immigration system in the U.S. and its border with Mexico.  The President stated he will now bypass Congress and try to fix the Immigration system on his own, Good Luck with that buddy!!!  All fixing set aside Director Michael Berry who co-wrote the film with Luis Moulinet are not out to change the Immigration system.  Instead they took a different approach.  Not wanting to make the film bias, Berry and Moulinet wrote a script covering many issues related to immigration.  I am assuming that through the Miguel character and his family the filmmakers chose to take the time and show us the audience the circumstances and situations that lead a person to make the desperate choice of leaving their family and home behind to cross hundreds of miles of Barren Desert in search of the “American Dream”.  All while avoiding getting caught.   On the other hand while Roy is conducting his personal investigation I am sure we will also see those affected by illegal  immigrants, from the Landowners with property that border with Mexico to the people who lose work due to the cheap labor and those who have financial gain because of the cheap labor.

Considering Director Michael Berry’s background in Theater I look forward to a great performance from the wonderful cast.  Another fun fact, this is both Michael Peña and Eva Longoria’s first Spanish speaking roles which should be nice to hear.  The panoramic views of the South West also look like great eye candy for those of us who enjoy cinematography.  “FRONTERA” will be in Theaters September 5th however if you are like me and love to watch movies early then you will be able to get in ON DEMAND or iTUNES July 31st.

In the futuristic action thriller Looper, time travel will be invented – but it will be illegal and only available on the black market.  When the mob wants to get rid of someone, they will send their target 30 years into the past, where a “looper” – a hired gun, like Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – is waiting to mop up.  Joe is getting rich and life is good… until the day the mob decides to “close the loop,” sending back Joe’s future self (Bruce Willis) for assassination.  The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and also stars Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, and Jeff Daniels.  Ram Bergman and James D. Stern produce.

I am also including a “Looper” Glossary to better understand some of the terms used on this Original Film:

Looper: A low level assassin who works for a mob in the future, killing targets they send back and disposing of the bodies.
Gat Man: A higher level gangster, the Gat men work locally with more typical thug responsibilities. They tend to look down on Loopers as a lot of untrained dandies.
Blunderbuss: A short stout hand cannon used by Loopers. Powerful but with a wide spread – impossible to hit anything more than 10 yards away, impossible to miss anything closer.
Gat: Generic term for a gun, but colloquial name for the Gat Men’s high caliber revolver. Powerful, accurate and reliable.
TK: Short for “telekinetic.” By 2040 a very low grade telekenetic power has developed in about 15% of the general population. Far from being a superpower, it’s weak and short range, and mostly used for bar tricks.
Closing Your Loop: A stipulation in every Looper’s contract that he may some day be required to kill his future self, thus closing his contract, getting a huge pay-off and erasing any trace of the very illegal arrangement with his future employer.

Drama. Gus Lobel (Clint Eastwood) has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. Nevertheless, Gus—who can tell a pitch just by the crack of the bat—refuses to be benched for what may be the final innings of his career. He may not have a choice. The front office of the Atlanta Braves is starting to question his judgment, especially with the country’s hottest batting phenom on deck for the draft. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over Gus’s objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his. Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each makes new discoveries—revealing long-held truths about their past and present that could change their future.

Good Luck to all!!!



















When long-term Congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of unscrupulous power brokers plots to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center.  At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support and a cutthroat campaign manager, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.

As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quicklyescalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other. It’s a mud-slinging, backstabbing, home-wrecking comedy from “Meet the Parents” director Jay Roach that takes today’s political circus to its logical next level. Because, even if you believe campaign ethicshave hit rock bottom…there’s still room to dig a whole lot deeper.

“The Campaign” also stars Jason Sudeikis as Cam Brady’s loyal but increasingly overwhelmed campaign manager, Mitch; and Katherine LaNasa as Cam’s single-minded wife, Rose. Dylan McDermott stars as Tim Wattley, tasked with transforming Marty Huggins’s public image; with John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd as the powerful Motch brothers, the money behind his implausible bid for Congress; and Brian Cox as Marty’s father, retired political operator Raymond Huggins, who cannot fathom what any of them see in his son.

Directed by Jay Roach (Emmy Award winner for HBO’s “Recount” and Emmynominee for HBO’s “Game Change”) and written by Chris Henchy & Shawn Harwell, from astory by Adam McKay & Chris Henchy & Shawn Harwell, “The Campaign” was produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Jay Roach and Zach Galifianakis. Amy Sayres, Jon Poll and Chris Henchy served as executive producers.

 The creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Jim Denault (EmmyAward nominee for HBO’s “Carnivàle” and “Game Change”); two-time Oscar®-nominated production designer Michael Corenblith (“How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Apollo 13”); editors Craig Alpert (“Knocked Up,” “Borat”) and Jon Poll (“Meet the Fockers”); and costume designer Daniel Orlandi (“The Blind Side,” Emmy winner for “The Magic of David Copperfield XI: The Explosive Encounter”). The music is by Theodore Shapiro (“Marley & Me,” Emmy Award nominee for HBO’s “Game Change”).


Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Gary Sanchez/Everyman Pictures Production, a Jay Roach Film, “The Campaign.” It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
