Doing 2 challenges at the same time. Duel movie by Steven Spielberg continues that directors challenge and this will be my 2nd movie for the 730 movies in a year challenge.

Challenges: Director (Steven Spielberg)
730 Movies (2)


Name: Duel
Director: Steven Spielberg
Release Date: November 13, 1971
Cast: Dennis Weaver, Jacqueline Scott, Eddie Firestone
Genre: Action/Thriller
Running Time: 90min

Duel is about businessman David Mann who is driving through the desert and hills of California. On his way to a meeting with a client he comes across an old tanker truck who is going slow. David decides to pass the slow truck, big mistake. The truck driver takes it personal and chases David through the highway. The trucker tries to hurt and actually kill David. First time watching it and i’m a fan, the movie kept my interest the whole way although it does get a bit slow at parts but that’s just because the type of movie. Throughout the whole movie I was wondering what was the truckers next move not leaving David in peace. If you are from SoCal and know the desert hills you will know the location where this movie was filmed. Awesome work for Mr. Spielberg’s first TV movie. I will change my rating to out of 10, in this case I give this movie a 7 out of 10.


730 Movie Challenge – Let Go #1

Let’s start over with this 730 movies in one year.

First movie is:
Name: Let Go
Director: Brian Jett
Release Date: August 21, 2012
Cast: David Denman, Gillian Jacobs, Kevin Hart….
Genre: Comedy
Running Time: 95min

Let Go follows the story of parole officer Walter Dishman and 3 ex- convicts under his supervision. The story is slow, there was moments where it dragged. Overall the movie was ok. This movie is under comedy, but to me it wasn’t a comedy. It might have some parts that can be considered comedy but to me it wasn’t. I don’t know what to say more about it. I give it a 2 out of 5.

My day so far….

My day so far has consisted of watching a NASCAR race I had recorded, after that I watched My Crazy Ex- Girlfriend second episode i think or 3rd. Its entertaining, nothing great. Decided to take time off the DVR and now i’m watching Let Go on Netflix while eating a cup noodles. Ha not an interesting day so far. I did play a bit of Far Cry 4.

Catching Up

     Morning Everyone in the West, Good Afternoon to the rest of you. Due to family emergency I have tons of hours recorded of shows and sports on my DVR. The good thing is I have been avoiding any social media or radio talk about any of the things recorded. The hardest to watch is the sports. It’s just not the same anymore. But at least I don’t know the end results. At moment I am watching NASCAR. Now sure how long ago I recorded this one I have a few recorded so this one might be one from the end of September.  Hopefully I can catch up with everything soon.


It is funny how any second your life can change completely either good or bad but your life can change fast. Mine did on October 16 of this year. But not in a good way,.. Life just got harder. But I guess God has a plan. Just need to stay positive and keep moving forward.

Sorry Guys

     Sorry to you guys who follow me and who was keeping track of my movie challenge. I know I haven’t wrote in a few days just when I was starting to be good at this. I had a family emergency on our way to a family trip to Monterey Bay, CA. We were heading to the aquarium there from SoCal. But something happen and that didn’t happen. Right now the whole family is going through rough time. I finally was in the mood to log on here and write a little something maybe help me a little with everything I have bottled inside. I will resume what I was doing on here but at a slower pace as I have priority things to attend to. It’s interesting how in one second your whole life can change.  Hasn’t processed in my head yet what has happen, it is hard to believe. I just pray and wish things get better. Thank you for those of you who follow me and read this. If you don’t follow my blog yet please do. I will eventually be posting more things. I am part of the entertainment business and arts so a lot of that will be posted along with just daily life things that I go through. Thanks again.

Movie Challenge: Amblin’ (Steven Spielberg)

Steven Spielberg short film in 1960 called Amblin’ was his piece of work that got him into Hollywood. Amblin’ is about two hitchhikers that meet in the highway trying to get a ride. It goes through their journey. I thought this was very artistic. I was actually able to find the full short on YouTube. So if you want to check it out just look it up, it is about 24 minutes I believe. One part I really liked was when they are sitting down and all you can see is their silhouettes. Very artistic in my opinion. I thought it was well done for the experience he had and the year it was in. If you are a fan and want to see the work that got him known check it out.
