Flood the Drummer's Beat Focuses On: ESCAPE PLAN

Friday, October 18, 2013

Stallone and Schwarzenegger Breakout Big
in Escape Plan

By Blog Contributor Christopher "Flood the Drummer" Norris

The former Governor of California (Arnold Schwarzenegger) returns to the big screen in one of his most memorable films to date – yes, better than Kindergarten Cop and Jingle All the WayEscape Plan deals directly with the issue of mass incarceration and the prison industrial complex, where two of Hollywood’s biggest action heroes are forced to ban together to take down their biggest enemy ever, the U.S. Government.

Owner of a high-profile security firm that specializes in testing the reliability of maximum security prisons, Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone), a former prosecutor, willingly spends the majority of his life inside prison walls, studying the behavior and movements of prison guards, looking for flaws in the structures, and then escaping. Believing there’s no prison he can’t break out of, Breslin accept a multi-million dollar contract from a CIA Agent (Amy Ryan) to go undercover in a top-secret prison to see if it's escape proof. Once inside, the Houdini of holding cells, he realizes he’s been double-crossed and must devise the most elaborate escape plan of his entire career.

Ray's genius is no match for his ego, as taking this deal in the first place is nothing short of insane and impossible. I won't give away too much about the reasons for the conspiracy to keep Ray imprisoned forever.  Or how he and fellow inmate Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger), team up, but I will say these two embark on a very interesting, dramatic, and comedic journey that will have you on the edge of your seat until the credits roll. Although labeled an action thriller, the complimentary and hilarious relationship of Schwarzenegger and Stallone's characters develop into more of an action/comedy.


"It seems to me that age and experience has somewhat forced these two to focus more on delivering believable characters who have depth and context, instead of just being the “muscle” that shoots guns, blow things up, and spout great quotes,” says my movie partner in crime, Rashuan “DJ Reezey Williams.

 Directed by Mikael Hafstrom, Escape Plan (116 minutes) also stars Jim Caviezel as Hobbes (Warden) and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson as Hush.

Emerging Cinema: VOICELESS The Movie

  Highlighting Philly Made Film - "Voiceless"  by Le Anne Lindsay, Tinsel & Tine Editor The Philadelphia Independent Fil...

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE

Food n Film: THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
