Can’t Stop Now!

Why Stop Now?” tells the bittersweet story of Eli Smith (Eisenberg), a piano prodigy, and his mother Penny (Leo) who despite her cheerful, loving disposition, struggles with drug addiction. On the day of his audition for a prestigious music program, Eli’s mother plans to enter rehab, but a glitch in the system forces them to enlist the help of an unlikely ally, her drug dealer Sprinkles (Morgan). Circumstances conspire that turn them into a comical yet determined band of collaborators who are forced to deal with their internal demons over the course of the day.

Man of Steel

I’m thoroughly intrigued by the new installment (just look at the poster!)

How awesome is the reboot of SuperMan? So far, the posters and SDCC sneaks have been quite impressive. I’m all for a reboot, though my heart is still with Christopher Reeve (yes, i’m a classic gal at heart when it comes to this one). But from the IMBD synopsis, it looks to be something that’s attached from the original movie (kinda like The Amazing Spider Man vs. the Spider Man trilogy):

Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark (Henry Cavill) struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.

Looks and sounds good, doesn’t it? We’ll have to wait and see. 🙂
