Check it out people. Some folks sent me a little info on this new documentary being made called GABE. Here’s the scoop…
The film follows a recent college graduate with muscular dystrophy who discovers overnight that his life expectancy has doubled. The film captures his remarkable path to meaning and purpose, while facing daily challenges that most people in the world couldn’t even fathom. GABE is a testament to human perseverance, and a reminder that despite our differences, we are all connected through our shared humanity.
Now watch the teaser trailer…
Good stuff, huh?! I just wanted to share this with ya’ll.
But wait…there’s more.
Although the film is mostly finished, the filmmaker is using Kickstarter to complete one last scene. You can view the Kickstarter here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1035258486/253063018?token=447db4fd.

I had the chance to watch the Danish western flick THE SALVATION directed by Kristian Levring. The film stars Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Mikael Persbrandt, Eric Cantona,Jonathan Pryce, and Michael Raymond-James. The Houston theater release is set for Friday, March 13, 2015 and will show at the Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park.

THE SALVATION takes place in America during the 1870’s. Life seems pretty dirty and tough in the Wild West. In the movie we meet a Danish ex-soldier played by Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal). After 7 years he’s finally reunited with his wife and son who he hasn’t seen since his birth. ‘SOMETHING’ happens…which I’m not going to tell you (lol) – which starts a chain reaction of ‘oh shit’ drama!! Yeah – it gets a little cra cra!
I really liked this Danish western. I’m huge fan of Mads Mikkelsen – his other movies AND in HANNIBAL. When he kills this guy with his knife…I was like, “Goooooo Hannibal!” (lol) I thought Eva Green (Penny Dreadful) was awesome!! If you watch this – you’ll see what I’m talking about. Her EYES can tell it all..without saying a word. Just watch it – you’ll see. (lol) Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural) is a great bad guy. I even liked Jon’s (Mikkelsen) brother in the film played by Mikael Persbrandt. I thought the plot was dope – it’s kind of messed up how everything gets started…but…I would have done the same thing!!! I thought the action was on point. THE SALVATION definitely plays with your emotions movie fans – a couple of times I wanted to reach into the TV and smack a townsperson. (lol) It’s a good western flick.
I don’t have any SERIOUS complaints…but I was bummed by one thing. ONE scene was a little predictable for me. Once I saw it – I was like, “Ohhhhh I know what’s going to happen.” AND…it does.
I give THE SALVATION… 3 1/2 of 5 popcorns! It’s a solid western flick – worth the watch. Clint Eastwood would be proud.
