Top Ten DVD List for December 11, 2012

After Kony: Staging Hope

The Bourne Legacy

In his review, Kam summarized this film as "Spy Franchise Reboot Features Pill-Popping Potboiler" He said "The prior three installments in the Bourne franchise, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, were all adapted from best-sellers by Robert Ludlum and starred Matt Damon as espionage agent extraordinaire Jason Bourne. The Bourne Legacy represents a major departure in that it's based on a book by Eric Van Lustbader and only makes slight references to the title character."

Prairie Miller also reviewed it, and she was not complimentary. "In a match not exactly made in heaven, the fourth installment in the Bourne series, The Bourne Legacy, seems to boast something old, new, borrowed and blue. Well, not exactly blue, though on occasion. Rather, green. As in little green pills competing with bullets, that move the not always breathless pace of this Bourne along."

Kam's one-line summary of this film was: "Piano Prodigy's Aspirations Frustrated by Drug-Addicted Mom's Dealer in Irreverent Abduction Dramedy"

Eli Bloom (Jesse Eisenberg) is a classical music prodigy who dreams of attending a prestigious conservatory in Boston. The only thing standing in the way of his promising future is the constant distraction of having to care for his 9 year-old sister, Nicole (Emma Rayne Lyle), and his mother (Melissa Leo), a 45 year-old cocaine addict who just can't seem to get her act together.

She finally agrees to enter rehab on the very same day of his big audition. And a complication arises when she's rejected by the clinic for passing the drug test they administer.
