Writer and Director Luc Besson has worked on movies like La Femme Nikita, The Professional and the Fifth Element. So you have a pretty clear idea where he's taking his latest female action hero, Lucy ($TBA). Scarlett Johannson plays Lucy a drug mule who obtains super human powers from drugs smuggled in her body. Where the rest of us can only use 10% of our brains, her brain power is increasing by the minute and only time will tell how powerful she will become. This movie looks like it has a lot of elements from the Matrix, but enough originality to make it worth seeing. Lucy also stars Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman and is expected to hit theaters in August.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_K6F7y33uQo

This classic Michael Cimino movie looks at war from a different angle; how people in a small industrial town are affected by what is going on thousands of miles away in Vietnam. The Deer Hunter ($13) stars Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken and John Cazale and is an outstanding portrayal of the horrors of war for those at home and for those who return home damaged and unable to cope their everyday lives. The younger generation for whom the Vietnam War is something they learn about in history should watch the deer hunter, and so should everyone else for that matter.
