What’s The Point of Cinema Releases this Week?
Let’s continue Arolemodel.com’s quest to turn everything in the entertainment world into a positive influence in the real world by taking a look at this week’s offering of movies and asking: what’s the point? I Superbiker. . .? What’s the point? Corman’s World. . . ? What’s the point? What are these movies offering us as people? What real life benefits are we going to get out of watching them? Let’s take a look
Good Deeds Synopsis:
In Good Deeds, Tyler Perry plays Wesley Deeds, a wealthy businessman who always does what he is expected to do, being led like a sheep. One day he meets a down-on-her-luck single mother working as a cleaner in his office. He does one good deed, offering to help her get back on her feet, and this one act inspires courage in Wesley, leading him to take control of your life.
Good Deeds: What’s The Point?!
Good Deeds actually offers a lot of points. It inspires altruistic kindness as Wesley performs his good deed; it opens viewers eyes to possibilities in life as Wesley finally does something that wasn’t expected of him, it inspires personal bravery by showing a character facing his weakness (his inability to be true to himself) and benefiting from this courage, and it offers some social insight into the lives of others, showing how so many people are at the mercy of others rather than being in control of their own lives.
I Superbiker Synopsis:
I Superbiker is a movie about four superbike riders in the British Superbike Season. The immediate point of this is obvious: it’s action, and action gets you, the viewer out of your head and living in the moment. More than this, however, Superbike is a movie about hope and bravery. All 4 Superbikers have a lot to win and a lot to lose in this movie and are willing to put their lives on the line to achieve their ambition.
I Superbike’s Point:
You might win, you might lose, but if you get on the bike and travel through life at 200 mph, at least you know you’ll be living life to the full (Pepsi. . . MAX) [br] [hr] [br]
Corman’s World Synopsis:
Corman’s World is the story of legendary writer-director-producer Roger Corman, told wittily and affectionately by director Alex Stapleton. As such it is an obvious pick for cinema fans, but more importantly, in telling the story of Roger Corman in his six decades the film encourages many positive traits, from commitment to ones work and passion to interpersonal skills and perseverance as Corman cultivates talent and builds his career.
Corman’s World’s Point:
You won’t get anywhere in life if you’re not willing to put the hard work in, to take the occasional risk and to commit to what you believe in. Life takes hard work, but rewards you for the effort. [br] [hr] [br]
Act of Valor Synopsis:
Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty US Navy Seals in a fictional account of real life navy SEAL operations. Of course, the immediate offering here is one of bravery, as per usual for war films, but Act of Valor’s promised realism should be a real eye-opener too, one that should bring home the realities of war and so make us feel more connected to the political world.
Act of Valor’s Point:
Whilst this point is not as clear as some of the other films on this list, the movie promises to make us feel closer to the wider world (particularly the political world) and also to inspire personal bravery. [br] [hr] [br]
In Gone, Jill Parrish (Amanda Seyfriend) plays a woman who has 12 hours to save her sister from murder. Sadly, this is all we know about this flick right now, but given the premise the film seems to be entirely about living in the moment, making the most of time and potentially familial love.
Gone: The Point:
Make the most of the time you’ve got else you gonna DIE! . . . this is just an estimate though as we don’t know too much about this movie right now.
